I hate to ask such a simple question, but I have never had a meat thermometer (or any kind of thermometer for cooking, with the exception of a candy thermometer that you just stick to the side of your pan).

If you are trying to test the temp of a roast that is in the oven, can you put this thermometer in the roast, and cook the roast, leaving the thermometer in the roast, or is this thermometer not meant to stay inserted in the meat, while the meat is cooking?

Sorry for such a simple question.
I'm thinking about using this to read bean temperature in a small table top coffee roaster. How long is the probe?

According to Lavatool's specs the probe on this is 4.5 inches (11.4 cm) long.
I also just stopped by to say how much we love our Javelin Pro! We got in on the last drop & couldn't be happier with it! Really well built, easy to use, & fast! Can't imagine a better thermometer. Grab it at this bargain price. Massdrop really shines with this one!
I have one and really like it. It is $25 on Amazon Prime with free one day shipping though, with more color options.

I stand corrected! I missed the model difference between regular and “Pro”. I’m going in on this deal now!

The only difference between the two is the pro has backlight and it flips the text so its easier for lefties to use.
Came to wholeheartedly support this product. Just had a flawless chicken breast off the grill thanks to this bby.
can you set this to use celsius , or is it stuck to Fahrenheit?

There's a small bank of 4 DIP switches inside the battery compartment, one of these controls whether the display operates in Celsius or Fahrenheit.

As long as you're happy to set it to either °C or °F and leave it set that way it works just fine. However if you want to be able to switch back and forth between °C and °F while in use it doesn't really support that.

Celsius is Witchcraft--stick to the big F!
This is a great tool. I love it.
I use mine (two of them) for HVAC troubleshooting. I went with the Javelin PRO Duo because of the speed and the magnet. I know it's not meant for what I am using it for but the HVAC thermometers in this style are just slow. I now of about 6 HVAC techs that I have showed this thermometer to that now use it themselves. The Javelin is a beast too. I am using it as a tool in a tool bag which it has last a year or so being beat up doing what I do for a living. I highly recommend the the Javelin PRO Duo even over the Thermapen MK4.
Got one last time--works great!
Nice, but you can buy something similar at Wal-mart for $9.

Chill dude It seems like you’re the one getting bent out of shape. Enjoy your meat probe.

Wait a second, let me check my temp with my fancy MD "meat probe." Oh yeah--no doubt about it, I'm chilled!
Does anyone know if it's safe to dip this into hot (maybe boiling) water? Thinking about soup, poached egg, coffee

Yes, I measure more than 212F with mine.

I homebrew with it, it handles hot temperatures just fine.
