Chefstemp Finaltouch X10 Instant Read Meat Thermometer Review


Reviewed by New_Mama

The ChefsTemp Finaltouch X10 is a welcome addition to any amateur chef’s home kitchen. It arrived in high quality packaging from the USA – a burnt orange branded outer box for protection with the item itself neatly contained inside a presentation box detailing all its extensive features. The ChefsTemp Finaltouch X10 is not your standard analogue meat thermometer and instead features a digital display which tells the user the temperature to one-decimal space. The display features an ever-bright backlight for easy reading and can be switched between Fahrenheit or Centigrade depending on your preference and which side of the pond you reside on. I was impressed how the display quickly flips around to enable you to read it easily irrespective of the position of the thermometer and prevents you having to read the numbers upside down. The product is ready to use out of the box and comes inclusive of two AAA batteries which are ready installed for maximum ease. One particularly useful aspect of the product is how it quickly turns itself off when not in use – this avoids the need to remember to flick an off switch whilst busy cooking and saves the battery life for regular use in the kitchen. The product itself can be used for a variety of kitchen tasks including roasting, grilling, baking and chocolate making. It reports accuracy to within 0.7 degree Fahrenheit or 0.4 degree Centigrade for temperatures between -22 to 392 degrees Fahrenheit or -30 to 199.9 degrees Centigrade and so can be relied upon to give a high accuracy reading for most normal cooking temperatures. Interestingly the thermometer can also read temperatures outside this range up to 572 degrees Fahrenheit or 300 degrees Centigrade albeit with a slight lesser accuracy at +/- 1.8 degree Fahrenheit (1.0 degree Centigrade).

The thermometer can also be used for barbeques and is a good way to ensure poultry is cooked through when cooking on charcoal – its is however important to ensure the probe does not go near any naked flame which is likely to lead to damage. The ChefsTemp Finaltouch X10 has some neat additional features, for example the magnetic backing which enables it to be stored on the fridge, extractor hood or anywhere else within easy reach for use within the kitchen. Additionally, it is waterproof with a water-resistance rating of IP67, meaning it can withstand being dropped in the sink or any other similar water related kitchen mishaps.

Overall, I would agree the ChefsTemp Finaltouch X10 is a high-quality product which looks good and feels good with a sturdy weight of 125 grams. It certainly ‘does what it says on the tin’ with superior accuracy and good attention to detail. Included on the box is a QR code which enables the user to access a free recipe book. It also came with a free magnet to inform the user regarding the safe cooking temperatures for red meats, poultry and fish – this is a welcome addition however it would have been more applicable to the British market if it detailed this in degrees Centigrade rather than just degrees Fahrenheit. (editor’s note – this device can be changed from Fahrenheit to Celius)

In summary this product is a good buy and the RRP is $69.99. Whilst this may seem expensive for what is essentially is a cooking thermometer this product is a professional quality product which would not be out of place in any chef’s kitchen and appears durable enough to withstand all your cooking endeavours.

(Editor’s note – Chefstemp Finaltouch is the world ‘s fastest thermometer and it has won the Red Dot Design Award in 2022)

Rating: I would rate this 5/5.
