Notes - Wash carefully - IP65 (low-pressure water jets), _not_ IP66 (strong jets) and/or IP67 (bottom of full sink). No calibration adjustment! Fast (3 sec but not 2 sec) thermistor [vs. pricy thermocouple (2 sec) tech]. oC/F switch inside battery compartment (if you care). Button, not AAA (grumble). Readout flips (2 way) but not vertical. Must turn off induction burners to use. But for ~$35 shipped (vs. $100 +shipping ThermoPen), I'm in for presents. BTW, TheWirecutter has a nice comparison review.

My spouse pointed out "can't adjust" calibration would have been clearer and that I forgot to mention that the ThermoPen's probe is also a smaller diameter.
im in Australia. I joined this drop and had my item shipped ‘elsewhere’. Sure there’s a little more in freight- but hopefully I’ll land it at only a nominal additional cost and give my middle finger to those wanting to ‘Australia Tax’ me. Thanks Massdrop.
 The Enclosure Company IP Rated Enclosures Explained What is an IP rating? IP (or "Ingress Protection") ratings are defined in international standard EN 60529 (British BS EN 60529:1992, European IEC 60509:1989). They are used to define levels of sealing effectiveness of electrical enclosures against intrusion from foreign bodies (tools, dirt etc) and moisture. What do the numbers in an IP Rating mean? The numbers that follow IP each have a specific meaning. The first indicates the degree of protection (of people) from moving parts, as well as the protection of enclosed equipment from foreign bodies. The second defines the protection level that the enclosure enjoys from various forms of moisture (drips, sprays, submersion etc). The tables below should help make sense of it: IP Ratings - what they mean. IP Rated Enclosures - quick find chart A number replaced by x indicates that the enclosure is not rated for that spec. First Digit (intrusion protection)
  1. No special protection<
  2. Protection from a large part of the body such as a hand (but no protection from deliberate access); from solid objects greater than 50mm in diameter.
  3. Protection against fingers or other object not greater than 80mm in length and 12mm in diameter.
  4. Protection from entry by tools, wires etc, with a diameter of 2.5 mm or more.
  5. Protection against solid bodies larger than 1mm (eg fine tools/small etc).
  6. Protected against dust that may harm equipment.
  7. Totally dust tight.
Second Digit (moisture protection)
  1. No protection.
  2. Protection against condensation
  3. Protection against water droplets deflected up to 15° from vertical
  4. Protected against spray up to 60° from vertical.
  5. Protected against water spray from all directions.
  6. Protection against low pressure water jets (all directions)
  7. Protection against strong water jets and waves.
  8. Protected against temporary immersion.
  9. Protected against prolonged effects of immersion under pressure.
Our range While we cover a huge range of electrical enclosures, our most common IP ratings are probably 65, 66, 67 and 68. So for quick reference, these are defined below:
  • IP65 Enclosure - IP rated as "dust tight" and protected against water projected from a nozzle.
  • IP66 Enclosure - IP rated as "dust tight" and protected against heavy seas or powerful jets of water.
  • IP 67 Enclosures - IP rated as "dust tight" and protected against immersion.
  • IP 68 Enclosures - IP rated as "dust tight" and protected against complete, continuous submersion in water.

I posted the info because I was offended that MD used a rating that I believe most people don't carry in their heads. I don't. I did no cross checking for accuracy. I can get you the website if you are interested in the source.

Good idea for a post citing a source I also would have assumed trustworthy. I dropped Enclosure Co. a polite note (polite intent, anyway, but sometimes I goof :-) ). I only noticed the error because I had to research the codes last year. My (overly narrow?) focus was simply informative. I'm not an engineer or product specialist so I my knowledge is quite superficial. I don't have access to the standards docs ($$ and copyright restricted) so I can't double check (e.g., does "K" suffix specify 10-15cm or 15-20cm as I saw elsewhere; is "m" suffix that indicates switches can be safely moved in the standard) . BTW, I also found out the ratings are not always cumulative or obvious. Specifically, IPx7 does _not_ imply IPx6, nor (more obviously) IPx9 not IPx8 or IPx7. Also note that these are static tests and don't include operation, movement, or moving water outside the narrow definitions. Pressing a button, adjusting an attachment, repositioning, buffeting, etc., are not covered unless specified. Sometimes you see an "m" appended to indicate that the item can be operated under test conditions (e.g., a light switched on/off underwater). The applicability here: don't press buttons or open/close the probe of the ThermaPen (IP67) when submerged (unless the manufacturer says otherwise); ditto when rinsing the Pro Duo (IP65) -- and don't use the needle spray setting or submerge it.. The codes also don't correspond to my(!) intuition. Several sources have mentioned that IPx7 is often easier to reach than IPx6. Also many years ago a watch repair person pointed out that steamy showers were much more likely to damage my "waterproof watch" (that term dates me but probably ~IPx7) than my summer lawn and pool care job with frequent hose spraying and arm dunking (provided I rinsed the watch thoroughly to remove the chlorine/pool chemicals). Showering was even worse than swimming laps (no diving or cannonballs). Water droplets (even pool-sized) held together by surface tension are much less likely to get inside than very humid air that then condenses. He also emphasized not pressing the buttons when submerged or even wet, and that the seals needed to be replaced every other year.
Is there any warranty on this?
Zoomcool80
I don't believe there is one that would be of any use. This is based on what I have read v in the discussions here concerning the same. These have excellent ratings on Amazon.
Can I read air temperature with this
Why no shipping to Australia!?!?
does the "stealth ink" display in amber (as pictured) instead of blue that the other models seem to?
(Edited)
skylog
Yes. Stealth Ink and Panda also have a black probe while the others are stainless.

Why is there no shipping to Australia?

I just found this, maybe it will help (it says expired but I signed up just fine). Shipping's like 20 USD though.

Thanks for the link. I'll try it out!
Seems Aussies are out of luck this time again. Barbeques Galore is selling the red colour only for $89.95, which is 60% more than this drop. Also, they sell the cheaper one, of course at a higher price than here, which was able to ship to Aus a couple of weeks ago on Massdrop. That makes little sense why this one has to be blocked.

It's too bad this may not arrive before Christmas, I'd buy one as a gift if I get it in time.

Thanks. MA here. Just got my notice this morning.
Can this be reliably used to measure temperature of liquids like water and milk?
Nikhil_V
Yes it's ideal for that
Just joined. Hope the shipping problems have been resolved.
So the LCD on the stealth ink is just a regular one with a orange back light right? How’s the readability?
Is it a thermocouple?
The probe on all finishes but Stealth and Panda looks to be stainless steel; is there a black coating of some sort on those two? What is it made of? Does it have any increased tendency to chip or wear off? Thanks
nooooo
The black probes are “Titanium ion probe for accelerated performance,” officially.
So... four new colour options (love the Wasabi!) but price has increased by $3, and still not a word on shipping to Australia.
I just wish Lavatools would re-instate Australian shipping so I could go back to complaining about the way Massdrop charge the full shipping price for every additional unit purchased :)
Jaggi
>not a word on shipping to Australia Here I was getting my hopes up for a re-drop...
Shitshow....delayed...cancelling
@Lavatools Is there an update with Massdrop? There should be an update status today whether they ship or not.
This thermometer is not only great for meat, but is also very sensitive and can be used pretty much everywhere. I use it to get the air temperature coming out of my AC vents, the outside air temp to see if it was too hot to apply water seal on my wood railings, any pretty much anywhere else I need a temperature reading. It drives my wife nuts to see me carrying around her meat thermometer all over the house!
Commenting again, I still have this device and it is still amazing, crazy accurate, easy to use and clean, everything about it rocks. If you're considering getting one, don't even hesitate.
ericklemyelmo
Have you compared it to a thermapen?
EZ_living
TheWirecutter review is thorough: definitely a step up better but 3x this price. https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/the-best-instant-read-thermometer/
Still taking orders on this one when we already know the other model isn't shipping (possibly for another 30 days)? If Lavatools/MD can't ship one, why should we have confidence they can ship the other?

LMAO this discussion made my day!! if this was reddit tho, you'd literally drown in *black*Gold from all the neg karma ^_^ I don't know if Massdrop are going to elaborate on the matter, but only like half the orders were delayed. I got mine already, and it was an overseas order (CA tax kills 95% of the drops for me, it's either amazon prime or shipping overseas lol).
LQDForce
Happy to entertain you (I need a damn tip jar). Haven’t got mine yet, but I do have the next model up, so I’m still cook’n up a storm on the outdoor grill. Thanks for checking in ;- )
Any update on shipping to AU?
PabloAU
Also keen to know this. I noticed the drop for the lesser model Javelin allowed shipping to Australia - why not this one?
PabloAU
Yes also dissapointed no shipping to AU why??
Why is there shipment delay for every order I placed on Massdrop?
Why did I just get an email from Massdrop advertising an inactive drop?
Kenbud
Me too. It's not the same though. It's for a lesser priced and lesser spec. thermometer
Is the probe removable for washing?
TroyJones
NO
TroyJones
Why would you think it necessary to remove the thing to wash it?!
Can it deliver readings in Celsius?
Hey Lavatools, I can't help but notice that the shipping ban for Australia is still in place. What if anything came out of the review you mentioned below? Or did that just quietly get forgotten?
And while I'm here complaining: Hey Massdrop, there is such a thing as combined shipping. It doesn't cost 3 times as much to send 3 of these to the same address!

MD gotta make a buck lol
Looks like MD looked into this a while back and apparently decided that's how they gonna make money on this drop🤑
https://www.massdrop.com/buy/lavatools-javelin-pro-duo/talk/1959238
Anyone else have a black spot forming in the middle of the display?
Delivery for Australia required
Please enable shipping to Australia! This was an option previously and if $143 is considered good value locally I might as well just buy a thermapen MK4!

Okay we hear you loud and clear! Let us review this issue and we'll see if we can lift the shipping ban for the next drop.
Thank you for all your support!
Lavatools
Still no Australia shipping?
