Does this silicone sleeve built to protect our winning instant-read thermometer offer useful protection or unnecessary bulk?

What You Need to Know
The ThermoWorks Thermapen ONE is our favorite instant-read digital thermometer. Its backlit display, durable construction, and quick and accurate temperature readings make it a reliable choice for any cooking project. ThermoWorks also sells the Thermapen ONE Silicone Boot, a protective cover designed to shield the Thermapen from the rigors of everyday cooking, including drops, spills, and heat. The cover is a sleeve made of heat-resistant, translucent silicone that slides over and completely encases the Thermapen. The boot also includes a magnet and a lanyard loop for convenient storage, and it glows in the dark to make the thermometer easier to spot at night. We were curious if the silicone boot was helpful enough to merit our recommendation or was just another superfluous kitchen accessory.
