iDevices has developed a successor to its popular iGrill meat thermometer, the iGrillmini. First introduced in 2011, the iGrill is designed to connect a probe to the iPhone via Bluetooth, allowing for the remote monitoring of cooking food.
The updated second-generation iGrillmini functions similarly to the iGrill, but the exterior has been overhauled and the product itself features a number of improvements. Now more rugged and quite a bit smaller, the iGrillmini has a battery life of 150 hours along with a 150 foot Bluetooth range. Because it's Bluetooth 4.0, the iGrillmini works with the iPhone 4s and later, the iPad 3 and later, the iPad mini, and the fifth-generation iPod touch.
We took everything you love about the iGrill, added a ton of cool new features and packed them into a rugged, pocket-sized design. The iGrillmini connects using Bluetooth Smart technology and features a Smart LED, proximity sensor, extended battery life of 150 hours and magnetic mounting. We have also developed a brand new app to connect to your iGrillmini, the iDevices Connected app for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch
It incorporates an LED ring that changes color based on the temperature of the food, and a single iOS device can monitor multiple iGrillminis at one time. iDevices has also developed an all new iDevices Connected app to manage the iGrill and the iGrillmini, which includes the ability to graph temperature progression, set alarms, and more.
The iGrillmini is priced at $39.99 and can be pre-ordered from the iDevices website. Customers will be notified when orders ship, and the accompanying app will be available beginning on November 20.
