Ask any professional chef and he or she will tell you that there’s simply no way to cook steak or any other meat perfectly without using a meat thermometer. Professionals can get pretty close, but they still use thermometers when they want to make food perfect, and you should too. Of course, technology has come a long way and not all meat thermometers are created equal. Our favorite by far is the MEATER True Wireless Smart Meat Thermometer, which stays in your meat while it cooks and relays the exact internal temperature in real-time to your smartphone. You can even get a notification when your meat reaches the perfect doneness so you can take it off the heat and let it rest.
