I personally recommend the ThermoPop meat thermometer by ThermoWorks. It has so many features, and it's both fast and accurate. I love it so much I've become a proud affiliate.

Why I Recommend the ThermoPop Thermometer
I have owned a lot of different meat thermometers over the years and I've found issues with all of them. You'll find cheaply made products that break down after only a few uses, thermometers that give readings that are hard to trust, and ones that take WAY too long to give you a temperature.
Who has time to wait for an internal temperature reading when you need it now? Who can trust such a thermometer when the wrong temperature can ruin a meal? Or render it unsafe to eat?
This is why I recommend the ThermPop thermometer by Thermoworks. This thermometer is not only convenient and accurate, but fast.
When you're cooking with meats, of course you can cook by time or you can cook by sight and feel, but the only sure-fire way to know if your meat is done the way it should be done is to test the internal temperature. There are just too many variables.
I've been cooking with my ThermoPop for a while now and it's easy to use. You basically remove the probe from its sheath, turn it on then insert it into the meat or whatever else you're measuring. It turns off by itself. It's small and super convenient to slip into a kitchen drawer.
I use mine all the time and definitely recommend it.
