The one splurge item on this list is worth every penny. The legendary Thermapen pairs its chef-trusted instant read thermometer with a handier-than-you-think IR thermometer. Check surface temp of pans, syrups, oils, your AC vents, etc, etc, etc.
Cut a standard baking sheet pan in half... and you've got its lesser-seen but just as versatile quarter sheet pan. Roast two things at once (different timings or seasonings), or in smaller batches (because you're not feeding an army here). Price is for a pair of 2.
