Colors include blue to signify rare, orange for medium, and red for well-done. The device includes two probes allowing multiple foods to be monitored at the same time and a long battery life of up to ten hours, ideal for smoking food outdoors.

Another item to be shown at CES is the WiFi-enabled Roasting and Barbecue Thermometer ET-736, which utilizes an iOS and Android compatible app to check cooking progress from anywhere. Similar to the ET-739, this device comes with two probes to monitor multiple foods. Complete with the Anticipation feature, the user will be alerted on their smart phone when their food is done cooking. The unit is capable of downloading recipes from the internet and storing personal recipes that can be shared with friends and family. The ET-736 can either be plugged into a direct current or used with the rechargeable battery.
