If you’ve ever stepped out the kitchen for what feels like a second, but come back to find your meat has burned and your entire meal plan ruined, then you know how useful a wireless digital thermometer can be.

Maverick ET733 vs. Maverick ET732, What’s The Difference?
The Maverick ET732 is an older version of the ET733. The ET733 (pictured above on the list) has the following upgrades:
- A larger screen displays both the target-high and target-low temperatures as well as current temperatures.
- Preset programs for 15 different meat and poultry, can be reprogrammed.
- Temperature settings can be adjusted simply by hitting Hi or Lo buttons on the receiver.
Ivation vs. Maverick, Which Is Best?
Both of these brands offer you the same range of 300-feet, however, we feel that the Maverick ET733 is certainly a better choice for its larger display, and its pre-sets. The thermometer has pre-set programs that you can choose depending on the type of meat (15 programs total) and they can all be reprogrammed again.
Ivation IVAWT738 Dual Probe Long Range Wireless Thermometer:
The Maverick ET733 has been rebranded to the Ivation IVAWT738 and it has a few upgrade available:
- It has a long wireless range of 325-foot.
- 2 hybrid probes allow you to monitor two things at once. 2 foods, 2 BBQ, or 1 BBQ and 1 Food
- Backlit large display.
- It fits right in your pocket or clips to your belt.
This, and many features that the Maverick ET733 has.
Which Wireless Digital Thermometer Should You Buy?
Our first pick would be the Ivation IVAWT738 (the upgraded version of the Maverick ET733) for its large screen and 15 presets which should take a lot of the guess work out of the way. Also, having 2 probes instead of 1 is a great way to keep an eye on the temperature of your oven/BBQ and not just the meat. Not to mention, it has the longest range of 325-feet. Your second choice should be the Ivation Thermometer, it doesn’t have the large screen or pre-sets of the Maverick’s, but it does have 2 probes, and since there’s almost no major difference in price between the two units, we’ll still recommend the Maverick over the Ivation and Oregon Scientific units.
