• Meet the Combustion Display.

    It keeps your phone safe from sauce, droppage, and buttery fingerprints. Its bold, easy-to-read screen shows core, surface, and ambient temps.

    Set your target temp and the Display counts down the time to perfect doneness. It also acts as a repeater, so you can use the app from another room, possibly while recumbent.

    The Combustion Display can manage up to 4 CPTs at once. And it’s ruggedly cute. So they say. 

    Before you start cooking, get your Display set up properly and ready to rumble.

  • Charge your tools

    Charge the Display (90 min). Use USB-C-to-USB-A (cable included). 

    The low battery indicator will flash until the Display is fully charged.

    NOTE: use standard 5v USB ports/power supplies only.

  • Update firmware

    • Download the "Combustion Inc" app from the App Store for iOS or Google Play for Android. 
    • Open the settings menu inside the app by tapping the Combustion logo then tap "update.” 
    • Recharge your Display after the update (10 min).

    Note: please do not update more than one Display (or other Combustion tool) at the same time. Leave the other ones powered off (or in standby) while you update. It doesn't take long!

  • Link Display
