As of March 2015, meat thermometers are available online through a variety of retailers, including Cabela's, Wal-Mart and Amazon. Choices include traditional dial models and those with digital displays. Prices range from about $5 to $70 on average, as of 2015.
Thermometers on the high end of that scale typically contain special features. For example, several models include a separate display and remote functionality, allowing chefs to monitor the temperature of meat from up to 300 feet away.
Cabela's offers standard shipping starting at about $6, but faster options are available. Both Wal-Mart and Amazon offer free shipping on items they sell directly, when purchases meet monetary thresholds. Items sold by third-party vendors on these websites may or may not ship free.
