MEATER: No more guessing to grill your meat to perfection

Whether you’re tracking the time or simply gauging by touch, some people just have the knack for knowing exactly when their meat has been cooked to perfection. For others like me, it’s always been about constantly hovering over the hot stove or grill poking your chicken, steak or fish with a thermometer or cutting into it to make sure it’s cooked right.

Dual Sensor Waterproof Wireless Probe

MEATER by Apption Labs, a gadget and companion app is one solution that can change all that. It’s a dual-sensor thermometer probe only 130mm long and 6mm diameter you leave in your protein. It’s also fully wireless as all the electronics are embedded and should last for up to 24-hour continuous use on a single charge. It’s waterproof and rustproof and made from highly durable stainless steel with a ceramic top. It’s also dishwasher safe so it’s easy to clean.

But try to have that one particular memory at your fingertips to share at home or with family and friends without hovering around your phone or having to sign up for social media. 

It’s not such an easy task without a smart digital photo frame.

Today’s frames are smart and no longer simply grainy passive display mechanisms sitting off in a corner on some desk rotating through a bunch of grainy pictures. Many models from innovative companies like Nixplay and Photospring produce crisp images.
