Thermapen One digital food thermometer launched
In development for the past five-years, the Thermapen One achieves temperature readings in less than a second for any catering facility and kitchen professional.
The Thermapen One is the fifth model of its kind from ETI, which was founded in 1983 by Peter and Miriam Webb and is now led by son Jason Webb. The product is manufactured and hand-made at its headquarters in Worthing, West Sussex, where crucial research & development also takes place in the ETI laboratories to continually improve the design of the Thermapen model.
ETI has pushed the boundaries of read speed and accuracy by tightening its tolerances within its laboratory testing. As a result, the accuracy of the new Thermapen One has been increased to ± 0.3°C.
The product also features a faster sensor, a brighter backlight which adapts to ambient light, and a longer five-year guarantee. The product is waterproof to IP67, meets the European Standard EN 13485, and comes in ten different colours.
The first Thermapen was created in Peter and Miriam’s garage 30-years ago, with support from Miriam’s brother who helped design the product, which was based on the model of a penknife. Now the product is relied upon by some of the world’s most renowned Michelin-starred chefs.
Jason Webb, ETI director, comments: “At ETI, we have a lot of pride about being a British manufacturer of the Thermapen, one of the most robust thermometers on the market used in kitchens and households across the world. A tremendous amount of consumer learning has gone into the Thermapen One. It’s important to think carefully about the materials and technology that you’re putting into each thermometer because the customer is at the very forefront of what we are producing. We understand what the customer wants so we made this the most robust thermometer that we’ve ever produced.”
