I've always wanted one of these and finally splurged and got myself one. The prongs that you stick into the meat are so big that I felt like I was leaving gaping holes and it is bulky to store in a drawer but other than that, it works great. I like that it has settings for the different types of meat and it has an automatic shut off and remembers what you used it for last. For the money, it's quite high end.

I received this product in May 08 in Jan of 09 it broke. The batteries had basically exploded in the handle. I removed the batteries and replaced with new, but the unit became extremely hot. Being that this was a gift I did not have a reciept or order number therefore unexchangeable. But I gotta say it worked really well, and I will probably hesitantly purchase another.

        Comments about Always Perfect Chef's Fork with Digital Meat Thermometer:

        Paid way too much for this poorly designed Chef's fork! Battery contracts totally ate away by battery acid. Bookstone replaced unit free of change. Now 6 months later the terminals are all corroded, and I paid $35 which is way too much...

        Comments about Always Perfect Chef's Fork with Digital Meat Thermometer:

        Used the fork on petite filet mignons, and followed directions precisely. It kept reading rare, when it finally changed color to medium, we removed and let rest 5 minutes. There wasn't even a hint of pink inside any of the filets, they were definitely well done. I expected more from a Brookstone product.

          Faulty Fork Fails after four BBQ trials

          • Trash Pickup

          Comments about Always Perfect Chef's Fork with Digital Meat Thermometer:

          Used this thing about 4 times. It does take temperature and will tell you when meat is done all 4 times. Though - I do believe it isn't too accurate. medium rare tends to come out medium or medium well.

          The 5th time you use it, the fork will fail. The temp will show up but nothing else. The instructions warn you about the main screen not lighting up. They suggest hitting the reset button.

          The reset button does reset the thermometer but not the main screen.

            Comments about Always Perfect Chef's Fork with Digital Meat Thermometer:

            I LOVE this thing. Received one as a gift a couple years ago and have since purchased several to give as gifts because it's one of the best gadgets I've ever owned. Has improved our grilling immensely because it takes the guess work out of rare/medium/well done etc. And the face lights up so even if it's getting a little dim in the back yard as the sun sets, it's still easy to read. I use it all the time even with meat I'm cooking in the oven. Has settings for a variety of meats and fowl - I'm telling you, this thing is FANTASTIC. Best gift ever.

            It's supposed to turn off in 2min by itself. Well I have one that is going thru batteries like crazy because it won't. It's annoying that this item isn't working right.
