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.

When you buy a meat thermometer that sends readings to your mobile phone you know you've reached the point where you've bought everything you could ever possibly need, and then one more thing, so it's time to stop buying stuff.

Please provide a trendy animated video so I can understands why I need this... because why don't I just use a meat thermometer?

If you ever slow cook meat on a charcoal grill (multiple hour cook times), keeping the temperature in a certain range is very important. The last thing you want to do is remove the lid to check the temperature. It's also nice to be able to watch football or engage in some other past time and be able to check you temperature without going to the grill (or better yet have your phone notify you if a certain temperature is met).

If the only thing you ever grill is burgers or pork chops, then yeah, the igrill is probably superfluous.

No pattern or symbol or word display? A color-only indicator is a turn-off for us color blind consumers.

It displays the temperature on your iDevice. And if you absolutely need it to be displayed on the device itself, then get the regular iGrill.

I have the original iGrill and it's awesome to use for smoking, grilling, and slow roasting. I can only assume the people in this thread that are mocking the product don't regularly cook like this and therefore don't understand the great importance of monitoring both your internal grill temp and your meat temp. Doing these at the same time from inside my house on my phone with the iGrill is great. It really helps with multitasking when doing a BBQ and you are cooking multiple things or getting other food prepped in the kitchen.

1) A standard meat thermometer requires visibility into the cooking space to read, which either means some form of clear window (like most ovens) or opening the cooking space to make the reading, which is generally inefficient, especially for grilling applications.

2) There are out-of-oven probe thermometers (I've used them) that work just fine for roughly half the price of this product. However, that is limited in range to the actual cooking area - this product will essentially allow you to be almost anywhere in the house and get the alert, rather than having to be near the cooking space.

For most uses, the standard out-of-oven probe thermometer is good enough. If you want to do slow oven or grill cooking and not have to hover around the kitchen or grill, the extra cost of this device might be worth it. Totally up to the individual to decide that for themselves. That said, I'm adding it to my Christmas wish list.
