I've tried several digital thermometers: the meat thermometer helpfully had some set temps at which you could tell it to beep, including 160 and 180 degrees, for green teas and delicate oolongs respectively, but the beep beep beep was annoying. One with knobs instead of buttons also was annoying, hard to adjust. I like best the one I have now with buttons, no knobs, no beeps, just gives temperature.
Best of all would be one that is not top heavy and doesn't topple out of the cup/glass/pot/vessel,but haven't seen one like that yet!
