Fast, accurate, and highly rated. I've had mine for 4 years and it still works great.

When I worked at a (very) high volume barbecue place this is what was used in the kitchen. Inexpensive and compact. Not super fast reading or hyper-durable, but it gets the job done and I've never seen the need for split second temp readings. It will fit in your sleeve pocket too.
