    This review is from: iDevices iGrill 7685-IGLK Grilling/Cooking Barbecue Thermometer, Black (Lawn & Patio)

    I bought one of these a few months ago and have been using it to a moderate level of satisfaction. I have tried it with iPhone, iPod touch, and my wife’s iPad. Due to the awful battery life of the iPhone and iPod touch, I primarily use it with the iPad. I use it with two probes to monitor the temperature of a chosen cut of meat and the internal temperature of my Primo XL smoker.

    This product has so much potential but I’m only giving it 3 stars. Why? Well, for one thing, the build quality is a little bit suspect. I have a white unit, and the plastic housing doesn’t feel very tough or rugged at all. I wouldn’t want to see the unit take a fall onto a hard floor – the plastic has a flimsy, almost brittle feel to it. While I would like it to be more rugged, it’s not my primary concern. My biggest concern/complaint is that so far, the iGrill is ONLY compatible with their own homegrown IOS iGrill app. The app itself is okay and provides some basic functionality, and is generally fine for short duration cooks, but when I am doing “low and slow” cooks (of up to 30 hour duration), I need a more robust app with a few more features.

    1) The iPad app just closes on its own periodically. This means you lose all the data that’s been collected on the temperature trendlines.
    2) There is no way to log the data to a file. I’d love to have the app just pump it into a csv file or even “to the cloud” in google docs. When I am cooking new things on the smoker, it’s great to be able to go back and see exactly how long it took to cook items and how it correlated to the grill temp
    3) There is a target temperature alarm that you can set independently for both probes, but when I leave the smoker going all day long or overnight, I’d love to be able to have a LOW temp alert an alarm that alerts me if the grill temp dips too low.
    4) This is one of the things I hate about IOS, but this app won’t operate in the background, so if you’re using your iPad/iPhone/iPod touch to monitor a long cook, you can’t really use that device for any other apps without losing your temperature data. Of course, when the app crashes on its own like it does, it doesn’t much matter.

    Honestly I would forget about those app shortcomings if there were a full featured app available for Mac OSX and Windows 7. Most laptops have bluetooth adapters and you can get a cheap USB bluetooth adapter for a desktop computer for less than $10. I hope iDevices strongly considers doing this or at the very least releasing an SDK or API so independent developers can create their own apps to communicate with the iGrill. If that happens I would give the iGrill a bump to 4.5 stars. (To reach 5 stars it still needs to be more rugged).

    Just a few other notes
    1) battery life seems pretty good. 4 fresh batteries seem to go for at least 50-60 hours of use.
    2) the display on the device is nice for a quick temp check when your wife confiscates her iPad, but it can be difficult to read in bright light, at least on the unit like mine with the white plastic housing.
    3) i bought my iGrill at the apple store because I’m impatient and didn’t want to wait weeks to order one online. Unfortunately it’s only sold with a single probe at the Apple Store. I ordered a spare probe directly from iDevices but they rip you off on shipping and you end up paying around $30 for the 2nd probe. The probes seem accurate but like the iGrill itself, I am a little suspicious of the durability – the wire lead is quite thin, so $30 is a ripoff. It’s better to buy the bundle that includes 2 probes with the base unit.
    4) I don’t expect the white housing to hold up very well over time. If the Apple Store had it in black, I definitely would have purchased the black one. That white plastic gets dirty easily and I’m pretty certain it will yellow as it ages.

    UPDATE August 11, 2011:
    It’s been a few months since I wrote my initial review above, and coincidentally, (almost as if on cue) an updated version of the iGrill app came out within a few days of that first review being released. Much to my delight, a lot of features were added to the new version 2.0 app, including items #2 and #3 in the list above. Unfortunately, there are still some glitches. I have not been able to get the CSV file function to work at all – it just freezes and crashes the app. The pdf function works, but for very long cooks, the scaling on the graph is messed up so that the labels on the x-axis all overlap each other, making them completely illegible. The updated app seems to be a bit more stable – I have witnessed a few lockups and freezes here and there but the last 2 long cooks I’ve done, it didn’t crash at all. I had a few issues where it wouldn’t link up with the outdoor unit for several minutes, or it would launch and then close immediately, but I think I have it figured out now. Basically, launch the app and turn on the iGrill device as…

    Love the IGrill, September 4, 2011

    This review is from: iDevices iGrill 7685-IGLK Grilling/Cooking Barbecue Thermometer, Black (Lawn & Patio)

    My Williams Sonoma probe thermo just stopped working. So in my search I came across the IGrill and saw some pretty weak reviews. I don’t take much stock in most reviews as most are just upset buyers that don’t take the time to work out minor kinks in a new product. So on my own judgement and knowing that the apple store sells these units, I bought one. Apple is pretty good about not selling products that don’t uphold their high standards of quality.

    My use…
    Large Big Green Egg
    IPad 2

    Quality
    seems to be good.
    Yes, it’s plastic, but seems to be durable

    Meat Probes
    Temps are Accurate
    Length could be a little longer

    Ambient temp Probe
    Very accurate
    Comes with clip to mount through dome.
    I used at grate level and is very accurate
    Bought an alligator clip for the grate.

    App (ver. 2 new app)
    Works good
    MUST turn igrill on FIRST then turn on App.
    MUST go into settings and adjust auto shut off to NEVER

    Needs Future upgrades
    Alarm for LOW temp
    Fix little crashing bugs
    Fix sleep mode
    Remove the manual style timer, give option for digital timer.
    Add ability to name the probe like in the first APP.
    Open up to other app developers to create new and cool apps
    Multiple device support.
    Create android app…you could get additional sales!!

    Would I recommend this?
    YES
    Is it a little pricey?
    YES
    Is it really cool?
    YES
    Does it works as stated?
    YES
    Is there room for improvement?
    YES

    I’ve used various grill thermometers over the years, for the past few years I’ve been using the Weber wireless unit. I was never satisfied with that, it seemed like it was always losing its signal at an inopportune moment (and I LOVE most Weber products).
    When I saw the iGrill become available, I figured it was worth a shot. The $100 price tag concerned me a bit, but this is a case of “ya get what ya pay for”. I’ve only used this thing in the heat of battle a couple of times, but it worked flawlessly. The software is a bit clunky, which I assume will improve over time (I’d give it 5 stars but for that), but all in all, I think this thing is well worth the money. And it definitely has a coolness factor that no other grill thermometer can hope to emulate. Well done! (pun intended).
