Within the cheap units price range there are some more complete than others...

For instance, I have a 15€ multimeter that features a thermocouple position and came with a thin wire thermocouple. Very useful to check engine temperatures and stuff like that.

Mine if from a brand called UNI-T, just like this:

My advice would br for you to go for a unit bought from a reputable electronic supplies store. Even the cheapest units sold there are often much better than more expensive ones sold at the discount bins of DIY stores etc...

IMHO another useful feature is a high current (10A) current measuring loop. Some of the cheaper units only feature 250mA loops...

Have fun!
