iGrill is the first Bluetooth and app-enabled device on the market
Gadgets have gone culinary. Next time you take online cooking classes from master chef online universities, check out this product. A company called iDevices has introduced the world’s first wireless cooking thermometer for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. iGrill turns your iPhone into your own personal sous-chef, enabling you to multitask between your grill or oven and your guests, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your food is perfectly cooked.
[amazon_link id=”B005CA8YTM” target=”_blank” ]iGrill[/amazon_link] is the first Bluetooth and app-enabled new gadget on the market, and includes an iGrill thermometer with projection display, probe, and the iGrill app for your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. The app is the real magic here. It lets you know the status of your food via Bluetooth. And because the Bluetooth connection has a particularly long range (over 200 feet), it means that you can be with your guests while your food is cooking, and you don’t have to be slaving over a hot stove all the time and missing out on all the fun.
Available free through the iTunes Store, the new iGrill App V2 perfects the core cooking functionality of the iGrill wireless cooking thermometer, improving the entire user experience. Available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, iGrill App V2 new features include new alarms, graphs, presets, timers, individual probes, and time remaining functions. Also included:
- Ability to set alarms for peak temperature or temperature range per probe.
- Many more included presets for fish, chicken, and meat.
- Ability to add/edit/remove/rename any presets.
- Time remaining feature tells you how long until it’s ready.
- Range mode shows current temperature and maximum/minimum of the current range.
- Ability to edit the name of each iGrill probe.
- A timer tool lets you run single or multiple timers simultaneously.
- Graph Tool lets you view temperature charted over time.

We are always listening for features that our customers want, and then integrating them into the iGrill App. This latest update completely transforms the users experience and is just one of many to come over the next few months.”
