It's no secret that the Fourth of July is one of the best times to grill. But if you love to barbecue, you'll likely be cooking up your favorite dishes outside all summer long. To help grill your meats just the way you like them, consider investing in this customer-favorite meat thermometer while it's marked down.

The Kizen digital meat thermometer features an LCD screen that's backlit. The thermometer is battery-powered, which means you won't have to worry about wires getting in the way while you cook. It automatically turns on and off when you open and close the probe. And if you forget to close the probe, you don't have to worry about killing the battery because it'll automatically shut off after ten minutes.

To use it, simply open the probe and stick it in the meat. It reads the temperature in as little as three seconds, so you'll know right away if your food is overcooked, undercooked, or your preferred temperature. The thermometer's standout feature is a temperature chart located right next to the display screen on the handle, in case you need a quick reminder of cooking temperatures for popular meats and poultry.

Thanks to its pricing, shipping availability, and high ratings, the best-selling thermometer has earned an Amazon's Choice badge in meats thermometers and timers. And when we say earned, we mean it—the thermometer has racked up more than 29,000 perfect ratings. Many of the customers who left five-star reviews described the thermometer as easy to use, accurate, and fast.

"Rarely am I blown away by the quality of a product and the attention to detail provided by its designers," wrote one customer, who also appreciated that it comes with concise directions and an extra battery. "This is one of those products."

The thermometer typically retails for $20, but right now it's on sale for $16. Plus, you can save an extra dollar at checkout by applying the coupon listed under the price, so don't wait to shop the grilling must-have.
