Default Broke thermometer. Need new one. Recommendations?

I dropped my floating thermometer into my brew pot (after I brewed thank God) and it hit the bottom and broke. I'd like to get a digital thermometer that gives an immediate reading so that I don't have to watch the red line go up over a period of minutes. Does anybody have recommendations for a good versatile digital thermometer?

I just got a $12 digital instant read from Lowes. It's not *quite* instant, (takes about 1-2 seconds), but can be calibrated, has a backlight for when I stick it into a pot of steamy wort, and a neato neck lanyard. Plus it's waterproof.

Here's a link
