check out the eti thermapen, UK made Very fast to zero in on a reading, Large clear lcd display, certified (by manufacturer) to be accurate, and it costs a bit more than a cheap chinese import but refurbed jobs appear on ebay for circa £25 iirc every now and again.

Its manual easily found with the google search term "eti thermapen manual pdf" contains detailed instructions for a 2 point calibration test using ice water for a close to 0C reading and boiling water for a close to 100C reading (not as simple as you may think) well worth doing with every thermometer you rely on..

Be warned if you buy a thermapen you may need to buy a 2nd as the first invariably ends up in the kitchen,
