Give-Away #31 A SuperFast Thermapen® 4 Cooks Thermometer- worth £60.00


When I first saw the Thermopen used on the GBBO, I was curious to what it was so I did a bit of digging and here is what I found:
  • It has a range of  -49.9 to 299.9 °C.
  • It's super fast. The true temperature of a product can be tested in just three seconds. and doesn't lock in, so if your cake gets hotter it will show
  • it's 360° self-rotating display automatically turns so the user can read the thermometer in any position — in either hand, left or right.
  • It knows when it's dark and turns on the backlight for you, making it easy to read in poorly lit kitchen areas or for night-time barbecues.
  • The motion-sensing sleep mode automatically turns the Thermapen 4 on or off when the user picks it up or puts it down, maximising battery life.
  • It's water proof  
  • Available in ten vibrant colours
A very clever gizmo indeed. Thermapen is offering one Pebble Soup's reader the opportunity to win a thermometer. The winner will be able to choose a colour among a selection, how good is that?
Closes on the 24th September

No but that's because I only stick to cooking easy things lol

Tracy K Nixon said...

No, cannot think of any as I usually follow recipes to the word/gram!

shirlz51 said...

I have had my jam too set,as in it is more like a very solid jelly rather than jam,You can smell it if it starts to burn ,but a thermometer gets it just right

sharon martin said...

DeliciousFashion said...

Not really because I usually only cook things that are easy to make.

I can't think of a big cooking disaster. But my husband once gave me food poisoning by not cooking chicken to the correct temperature

peter campbell said...

the few cooking disasters I've had had have just been down to my own absolute carelessness!

kimberley dVIES said...

buchanl said...

samantha loughlin said...

Ruth Harwood said...

I've burned cakes as well as pasta dishes, the worst was when I was baking with my niece and I had to explain she couldn't really eat the black cakes lol!

kirsty100000 said...

I made a cake once and as I lifted the tin up to put it in the oven the bottom of the tin came off and the mix went EVERYWHERE!

Kelly Lawton said...

I have burnt a few things!

Kim M said...

Often turn the grill on by mistake instead of the oven and only realise when I can smell burning

Karen Knox said...

I once made a roast dinner, but went to serve it and realised I hadn't put the meat in! Not sure how I managed to forget that!

suz brzeski said...

i tried to make treacle toffee, but it didnt set- i dont think i got it to the correct temperature

Christine Caple said...

I can't recall anything at the moment!

Cardiff UK said...

Usually my disasters are related to not reading the instructions correctly on ingredient measures. So whilst it looks done on top, below is just a dam waiting to burst it's banks. I should use a thermometer - it would at least show me it's liquid rather than a springy sponge :)

Anne Woodthorpe said...

I seem to burn everything!

Lizzy Cooper said...

I tried to make fudge without a thermometer, don't even try it, its a disaster! haha

jo yule said...

GuruOnAMountain said...

I once had a baked cheesecake disaster where somehow the cake tin holding it sprung a leak and the bain marie soaked into it!

Chris said...

Have you ever had a cooking disaster due to wrong temperature, runny jam etc....all comments welcomed . . . . . . . . . oh so many! They look cooked but one bite says not!

Romana Richards said...

I was making a caramek nest once and obviously did something wrong as it wouldn't set so I could not twirl it and string it out to perfection

Kelly Hirst said...

The first time I used my slow cooker, I didn't use enough liquid do ended up with a burnt dinner!

Donna caldwell said...

At Christmas the turkey wasn't cooked disaster

Victoria Prince said...

I tried to guess chocolate temperature because I have no thermometer, and ended up completely ruining it because I got it too hot!

Vickie Jackson said...

Where do I start?
Set fire to scones and got the fire brigade out when I was at school!
I always get the temp wrong with cooking :(

Zoe said...

I cooked a nice haunch of venison once and overcooked it so it was dry. An expensive mistake.

sheridarby said...

No I haven't yet

Janine Atkin said...

ive never had anymajor disasters

Charlottep said...

Yep - Never try and guess temp when tempering chocolate. Burnt not quite as pretty as shiny! Whoops

Chris Coyle said...

Fantastic!!!

Lyndsey Beckford said...

I can never get my tablet to set

travels with topsy said...

Me and my daughter made biscuits but cooked them too long, too hot... had to soak them in a mug of tea for an hour to keep my crowns!

Leslie Evans said...

Yes, Set the oven incorrectly and Burnt my roast badly, unuseable.

Geoff Hibbert said...

I can attest to the fact that if you put sausages under the grill and then wander off and forget them, they will turn black - but they taste strangely delicious.

Anna Robinson said...

A few times I've accidentally turned the oven too high and burned the dinner!

Stacey Craig said...

Yes the first time I made Christmas dinner the Turkey was still raw, needless to say my cooking has got better as I've aged.

cat Hold said...

split chocolate when trying to temper it

Julie jones said...

A very soggy middle in a Lemon Drizzle cake. Some nice custard covered up that problem though, lol

Anonymous said...

Not yet, unless burning things count which i do occasionally!

laura banks said...

nothing that i can remember

fjk42 said...

I've never had a disaster because of wrong temperature, but then I've never attempted to make jam, fudge etc. However I did once burn some boiled eggs. I put them on to boil, then forgot about them until a horrible smell like burning rubber started coming from the kitchen. The pan was completely ruined and the eggs could have been used as lead shot.

Thomas Perry said...

when I cooked Christmas dinner for the first time, my turkey looked golden and gorgeous on the outside but when I cut into it to serve for dinner it was as pink as candyfloss in the middle, super raw, for Christmas dinner we had lots of shop bought pigs in blankets instead

Fiona Hogan said...

I have my excuses ready when I cook a joint if meat or make my apple and cinnamon cake. They range from "the phone rang" or "the doorbell rang" or my favourite at the moment is I forgot to look what time I put it In.

Mike Williams said...

I veer from runny to virtual concrete by estimating the temperature when making jam and chutney. Clearly I need some tech help to take the guesswork out of it.

Monika Suchonska said...

I made a victoria sponge that was burnt outside and raw inside :(

Anonymous said...

I have left the gas too high under the egg poacher - it boiled dry and all the plastic cups melted.

Sammi McSporran said...

I tried to make marshmallows. Figured a sugar thermometer couldnt be *that* important and that I'd know when it was bubbling properly. Nah. Ended up with just a sticky mess. It worked for a couple of days as marshmallow fluff, and then I had to throw it all away :(

Chantelle79 said...

I havnt really had any disasters myself, nothing to write home about. Oh apart from nearly setting fire by using a tea towel to lift a big pan from the stove. I religiously went out the day after and bought a new pair of oven gloves
