The ultimate tool for the perfect steak and roast. We have been using this tool for many years at home for endless occasions and are extremely happy, so we've decided to directly import a batch from the maker in Germany for our customers here in Japan. This thermometer is already in the third generation - after improvements over the last years, this tool has reached near engineering perfection. Makes a great gift for anyone who loves to grill or cook!
What does it do? This thermometer is inserted into thick steaks or roasts and is left inside while cooking or roasting, even inside the oven or over grill fire. Its color LED light indicates when your meat is ready with extreme precision. With three set temperatures (Green = Medium Rare (125°F/51.67°C), Yellow = Medium (140°F/60°C) and Red = Medium Well (153°F/67.22°C) you will always get your steak to your personal perfection. This takes out all the guesswork and prevents overcooking or undercooking roasts or steaks - the perfect doneness every time!
How about the battery? The manufacturer promises over 1000 (!) use cycles. If you cook a roast every weekend, it would theoretically last over 15 years (!!)
Any Warranty? Yes, the manufacturer gives 5 years (!) guarantee on this thermometer.
What can this thermometer do what my regular thermometer can't? Regular food thermometers measure temperature. This thermometer measures the doneness. There is no temperature display but an LED indicator telling you when to remove the meat from the heat. It also calculates the resting time - the time the roast or steaks continues cooking even after removing it from the heat source.
Can I use this thermometer for any kind of meat? You can use this thermometer on beef, salmon steaks, tuna steaks, pork roasts, game meat, lamb or a whole large fish. It is necessary that the thermometer is inserted fully into the center of the meat. That means this thermometer can't be used on thin steaks or on roasts where the thermometer would poke out from the other side.
Is it heat resistant? Of course, it is. It is designed to withstand temperatures up to 900°F / 482°C.
Where can I use it? You can use the thermometer on the grill, oven, and fryingpan/skillet. Indoors and outdoors. Winter and summer.

Meat isn’t cheap and for a special occasion I didn’t want to overcook it. I hadn’t activated it properly but after checking the time and reading the instructions once more I got it working and woah my meat was ready! Just in time. Now I know how it works I’ll do it right from the start. But no more guesswork!!
Translated from Japanese: It's nice to know how to cook.
Often, I slightly insert a thermometer and check the temperature each time,
If that is the case, it’s troublesome to insert it many times and it’s also troublesome to leave dirty things.
This product is very convenient because you can leave it inserted from the beginning.
However, there are times when it takes some strength to insert it, depending on the type of meat, my lack of strength, etc.
Therefore, I removed 1 star.
Translated from Japanese: The time it takes for the meat to cook depends on the coldness of the meat just before cooking and the oven used, but it’s highly recommended for those who don’t know how to cook.
In addition, this product seems to be usable for meat with a thickness of 2.5 cm or more.
There is no Japanese in the attached manual, but Horizon Farms will add a Japanese explanation, so I think that you can use it even if you cannot read the attached manual.
The rump roast will flash to let you know when the meat has reached the right temperature, but it doesn't make a sound, so you need to keep an eye on the rump roast while you're grilling the meat.
I immediately tried using it when grilling beef rump roast and pork shoulder and both were very satisfying. After all, there was a difference of a few minutes between the reference baking time written in the recipe and the actual time taken, so I was glad I had the Steak Champ thermometer.
“I bought good meat but failed to cook it!” I'm glad that I don't have to worry about this anymore.
