I bought a Thermapen a year or so back and love it, but I still get their email sales. Today one came through that looked interesting. It's a new thermometer that is just a little slower, but a whole lot cheaper. 5-6 seconds vs 3. ($24) Sorry for the large picture, it's the only one I could find...
