Cook better with less effort. The Range grilling/kitchen thermometer gives you: precise temperature readings; live temperatures and remote alerts to iOS devices anywhere; Rangefinder temperature guides for meat, candy and beer; and recipe graphs for repeatable results.

Use Range with your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad as a leave-in oven thermometer, and get alerts on your other iOS device so you don't have to hover around the kitchen. Kitchen scientists—graph and save temperature data to experiment with your recipe. Or, use Range as an instant-read thermometer and get audio alerts to nudge you when your candy has hit the hard ball stage.

• Real-time temperature readings. Check the temperature over the Internet from any iOS device.
• Set rising or falling temperature alerts with a swipe of a finger.
• Remote alerts to all your iOS devices when your dish is done.
• USDA and gourmet presets for meat and candy make it even easier to cook a perfect dish.
• Minimal interaction. You want to cook, not futz with your phone. One-handed operation, 3D Touch presets from the home screen and monitoring temperatures on your lock screen makes you more efficient.

Graph view in landscape.
• Save your graph as a PDF, or CSV data to open as a spreadsheet.
• Rangefinders show you important temperature ranges for meat, sugar stages, and homebrewing. Stay on top of things with audio or remote alerts as you pass through important temperature bands. And because every chef has her preferences, you can create your own Rangefinders.

Requires the Range (wired) or Range Dial (Bluetooth) smart thermometers, made of food-safe silicone and stainless steel, and designed for the oven or grill.

What's New

Version 2.2.1

Several bug fixes, clearer explanations, a revamped customer support section, and a better firmware upgrade process, which will recover Range Dials that have become unresponsive because they're stuck in upgrade mode.

Predicted done time. This is technically beta, but I wanted to get this out to you in time for a long turkey cook. Now when you set an alert in portrait orientation, you'll see an estimated time remaining to get there (and in the Today View that you get to by swiping right from your phone's notifications screen, if you've added the Range widget to that). I wouldn't completely trust the turkey to this, but me know how it works for you. As always, contact me with any feedback through Customer Support (under the Settings gear icon).

Egg preset. Making great soft-boiled eggs can be tricky. We've added two tried-and-true methods. @beau suggested the idea, and if you're using the default USDA preset temperatures, you'll get his method — bring to a boil, then 6 minutes at a simmer. If you're using the gourmet preset temperatures, you'll get my wife's — drop the eggs into boiling water for 3 minutes. Get the complete instructions when you tap on the egg preset.

Ratings and Reviews

Great companion app for the Range thermometer


I’ve only had one opportunity to use the app with my Aqua Range thermometer (for home brewing) but I think the app is wonderful! It’s simple to use but does take a minute or two to get it sorted out. I’ve had no compatibility or crashing issues, but I did initially have an issue where my primary iPhone couldn’t get remote alerts from the old iPhone connected to the Aqua Range. This was quickly fixed by Supermechanical’s support team (Thanks, John!) and remote alerts do work now.

If there was one feature I’d like to see, it would be the ability to get live readings remotely, rather than just notifications when the temperature hits a specific number. For my purposes, that would merely add some extra “cool” factor, but I can see where that’d be useful for people who need very accurate temperature control.

Anyway, thanks for the awesome app and keep up the good work, Supermechanical!

Simple, Useful, Effective


Great app! Loved how easy it is to use, and the notifications on other iOS devices is killer!

So far I've use the meat range on fish, chicken and hamburgers. In each case, the temperature has been spot on, and only taken a few seconds (from not being used, aka the Range is at room temp) to get an accurate reading.

The only minor quip I have is at the moment there's no universal setting for fish, but I suspect this is because seafood has different temp ranges depending on the type

Simple, and great


I’ve used it to grill steak and to bake it (wha?). The cord didn’t melt so I don’t know what the other reviewer’s problem is. The app is simple, well-designed, and does almost all I want it to do other than having the thermometer in landscape mode. I’m not that interested in charting my steaks. I could see that being very valuable to bakers and the like.

Worked great with all of my iOS devices. I got notifications on my iPhone while my iPad Mini was set up by the grill and by the oven.
