Impressive price for a traceable instrument. However, given the track record of the Thermapen, not only in this forum but throughout the cooking / baking community, I'll take it every time. Since going AG, it is one of the few sine qua non
pieces of equipment I use......not to mention that I use it constantly in cooking and baking.
I bought my new model Thermapen at full price, and I've since bought two of the open box units for family members.
