True grill masters know that precision can make all the difference between a perfectly cooked steak and a rubbery chunk of shoe leather slathered in A1 sauce. But even a novice can get their food to the exact right temperature with the help of the MEATER+ wireless meat thermometer and its corresponding app—and you don't even need to hover over the grill to use it.

The sensors on the MEATER are housed completely within its stainless-steel probe. All you have to do is insert it into your steak, fish, chicken, or whatever meat you're grilling up, and the thermometer, in conjunction with the MEATER app, will guide you through the rest of the process from grill to table.

The MEATER+ wireless meat thermometer actually has two separate temperature sensors: One that measures the internal temperature of the meat itself, as well as another sensor that keeps tabs on the ambient temperature of the grill. And even if you don’t think you’re enough of a grill expert to make use of that extra data, the MEATER app most certainly will. It converts all the data into step-by-step instructions for how to cook your food, courtesy of the Guided Cook System feature. And once the meat is off the grill, the app even provides an educated guess on how long the food needs to rest before it’s eaten.

Every MEATER+ package also includes a Bluetooth repeater, which gives it a wireless range of up to 165 feet. So when you use it in conjunction with the free MEATER smartphone app, you can get progress updates and instructions on what to do next.

The whole MEATER+ wireless meat thermometer package, which includes the thermometer, the Bluetooth repeater, and a bamboo charging dock, is only $99 from the MEATER online store.
