No more overdone roasts. The iDevices Kitchen Thermometer keeps tabs on meat so you don’t have to.

The thermometer measures the temperature of the meat and sends that information via Bluetooth to your smartphone or tablet up to 150 feet away. The app alerts you when the meat has reached the desired temperature. You can choose preset temperatures for various foods and levels of doneness, or set a customized temperature.

The app is available for certain models of the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

The iDevices Kitchen Thermometer can be ordered for $79.99 at http://store.idevicesinc.com. Shipping is extra.
