Crowdsourcing Mornings: Meater Wireless Smart Meat Thermometer

Geek Alabama Crowdsourcing Mornings

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Meater is the first truly wireless smart meat thermometer. Along with the Meater app, it will help you cook the juiciest steak, chicken, turkey, fish or other meats perfectly every time for every occasion.  They know that not everyone is a master chef, so they designed Meater to allow anyone with any skill level to operate and cook any cut of meat to master chef perfection.  It doesn’t matter how experienced a chef you are or if you’ve cooked the same steak 100 times before, as it often happens while cooking meat, you can’t help yourself attending to your friends and family first, then watching your cooking second. Usually, by the time you remember to check on your food, it is already too late.

With Meater, when your food has reached the correct internal temperature, you will receive a notification on your smartphone. You can finally break free from the kitchen or grill and have confidence Meater will tell you when your food is ready.  The cost of Meater and 2 store bought steaks is less than the cost of one visit to a high end steak house. Once you own Meater, you can get repeatable, restaurant quality results at home and at a fraction of the cost.  When the Meater probe is inserted into the food, the meat acts as a heat insulator protecting the Meater electronics from extreme heat. We’ve miniaturized the Meater components, specified them to withstand the highest internal meat temperature and provide a warning to the user should Meater begin to approach its limits.  They are now in the late stages of the project and ready to move forward with finalizing the product and get to mass production.


As of September 24th, this project has raised around $84,000 of their $100,000 goal. This project only has 28 days left to raise the $100,000 or it will not be funded!  For a pledge of $49, you will get one Meater device.  For a pledge of $99, you will get two Meater devices.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1977846026/meater-the-first-truly-wireless-smart-meat-thermom?
