Default Thermapen open box sale

I've got one, but if you've been thinking about it, they've got "open box" units on sale for $69. You'll probably not find them this low for a long time, if ever:

Hmm.... do I buy 1 or 2?
Will I be sleeping on the couch for one night or two weeks?
Is the wrath of a 8 month pregnant SWMBO worth the savings... These are the questions I must answer before I click buy.

Ok, those of you that have a Thermapen... do you use it for brewing and cooking? Or would you rather have one for each?

I use it for both with no issue. Buy one, and buy your wife some flowers & chocolate with what you woulda spent on the 2nd.

Trigger pulled on one. I've been wanting one for over a year and this is definitely the best deal I've seen so I guess its about time. I'll be taking the wife out to dinner tonight.

Thanks for the tip rico!

Thanks for the deal. Took the slickdealz approach - Buy now, ask questions (and forgiveness) later. Now to research why I actually need one of these...

I have one and use it for brewing and occasionally for cooking when I am smoking meat but I just got another. Also I have to give them props my old Thermapen that’s 2.5-3 years old died on me last week and I sent it in for a repair estimate and they responded back within 48 hours that they were sending out a new one for free. That made me pull the trigger for another today. Great company to do business with.

I got one for Christmas. I accidently left it sticking in the false bottom of my mash tun when I was pre-heating it. When I remembered it, it was 1/4 submerged in 176 degree water. When they say splash-proof, they mean splash proof. Never missed a lick.
