Default Digital Thermometer

So after brewing a couple all grain batches, the whole lifting up the lid to the mash tun and checking the temperature thing is getting old. Can anyone recommend to me a reliable digital thermometer that isn't too pricey? I'm willing to spend $20, maybe $30.

I lucked out and found a used thermocouple on ebay for $1 + $5 shipping. It was a liquidator, and it was in the industrial equipment section, not listed as thermocouple. I totally lucked out, but now I can use any k-type probe with fairly accurate measurements.
