This bestselling no-touch thermometer is nurse-approved — and it's just $20

Nowadays, it's crucial to have a good, reliable thermometer on hand. And we found one that fits the bill. Better yet, it’s contactless. Amazon's No. 1 bestselling iHealth No-Touch Forehead Thermometer is accurate and fast — and it’s just $20. Just point the thermometer to get a quick body temp. The reading will show within seconds on the large LED digital display. It’s foolproof — and nurse-approved.

This sleek, simple digital thermometer comes ready to use with two AAA batteries. Simply point it a few inches from the forehead and a moment later it will buzz with the easy-to-read results.

“I’m a registered nurse, and I take care of my elderly mother as well. I wanted something to easily screen those who enter Mom’s home. It was so simple,” wrote a five-star reviewer. “I took it out of the box, popped in the batteries that came with it, and I was using it in seconds. I’ve compared it to taking my temp at the hospital, and it’s as accurate as theirs. The reading is large and lights up, making it very easy to see.”

Effortless and sanitary

Thanks to its sleek design, this contactless thermometer feels intuitive. Point it a few inches away from the center of someone’s forehead and push the center button. It's an especially great way to check on a sleeping child.

“No worrying about disinfecting the thermometer because it never touches the skin. Also the display is large and easy to read in a dimly lit or dark room,” added a happy Amazon reviewer.

Takes only a second and even works with a moving target. Highly recommended for the medical professional and for home use, especially with little kids.”
