We've seen remote BBQ and oven thermometers before, but now here's one that can annoy you and all your friends by talking your ear off. Actually, it doesn't have a lot to say unless that steak you're cooking is done.

You can also use its probe in the oven, and either way, the thing can notify you of impending burnage up to 100 feet away. Clip the receiver to your belt and wait for the word, and you'll never ruin dinner again. Might be worth the investment, smoky.

DISCUSSION

I have one of the earlier versions. Doesn't talk at you, just beeps. I love it. Makes for perfectly cooked tri-tips every time. Regardless of how much wine I've had during the cooking process. I've had to replace one that went wonky (ala Jason R, the temp went crazy, I think one of the resistors gets fried) but it was cheap enough and is such a great tool if you use it that I had no problem going out and springing for a new one. Will have to look into this model next.
