Range Dial: A connected cooking thermometer that lets you unplug.

Range Dial press kit (29 MB)

Range Dial is a versatile cooking thermometer that helps you achieve kitchen joy whether it's grilling, baking, brewing, or candymaking. It works with or without your smartphone, so you can tinker with your recipes, not with your tools.

Range Dial is the evolution of Supermechanical's previously Kickstarted thermometer, Range. It adds customers' top requests: Bluetooth for wireless monitoring, a second probe for ambient temperature, and live temperature monitoring via the Internet—something unmatched by any other thermometer. But Supermechanical also thought carefully about the friction points and how to address them.

Having a connected device shouldn't mean you have to mess with an app for the most basic functions. Just plug in the probe and turn the dial to a preset—Range Dial will beep at you, and you'll also get a push notification on your phone when your food is done. Or open the app to have full control and all the data you need to track your recipe. It's the best of both worlds.

Supermechanical paid attention to the details. Range Dial is extremely precise thanks to a custom engineered temperature-measuring circuit and probes. It's built to last with machined stainless steel, silicone and polycarbonate. It's the evolution of how hardware for the smart home should look, feel and work.

Range: Smart thermometer, smarter cook.

Range press kit (45 MB)

Every cook can use an assistant like Range. Send remote alerts to other iPhones and iPads, anywhere, and save graphs of your recipes — all in an incredibly accurate thermometer that you can leave in your oven or grill. Just like your recipes, we made it with love and the best ingredients — US-built food-safe silicone and stainless steel. Range helps you achieve great results with less effort.

Ember Range has a 3" sharp tip made to slip right into meat, whether you're roasting, barbecuing, grilling, or smoking your dinner. It's short enough to fit in your oven or grill — leave it in or use it as an instant-read thermometer. Aqua Range features a 6" round tip to reach deep into your best pot without scratching it. It's ideal for beer brewing, frying, candy, yogurt and cheese making, or barbecuing an extra large brisket. Both have a food-safe, eco-friendly silicone handle that clips easily on to the side of pots — keeping your hands free for cooking. The 54" silicone cable gives you space to keep your iPhone out of harm's way in your kitchen. A thoughtful cable magnet keeps the cord under control and stores neatly in the plug when you don't need it.

Use Range with your iPad as a leave-in kitchen thermometer and watch the graph of temperature over time. Save the data so you can recall what works and what doesn't for your recipe. Or, use Range as an instant read thermometer and set alerts to let you know when your candy has hit the hard ball stage. Download the Range app, plug Range into your iPhone (compatible with iOS 5.1+) and you're on your way to your tastiest meal yet. Roast or grill it your way to get as tender as you like without sacrificing food safety. Make perfectly soft-boiled eggs sous-vide style. Explore the hidden world of your brews, confections and meats with the graphing view.
