About this deal
Setting your desired cooking time and temperature, or configuring the alarm to sound once your target temperature is reached, could not be easier. The alarm is piercing but clear and not unpleasant. And we noticed no problems with accuracy during our testing (though the thermometer measures only whole degrees, not tenths, so minute fluctuations were harder to detect). FoodSafety.gov has a Safe Minimum Cooking Temperatures Chart that you can reference at any time. Generally, at approximately 145 degrees Fahrenheit, seafood, fresh beef and lamb, fresh pork and fresh ham are deemed safe to eat. Cook ground meats and egg dishes to 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Ground poultry, fresh poultry, pre-cooked ham and leftover casseroles should be cooked until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Working up to 10 metres away with Bluetooth, or 50 with Wi-Fi, I didn’t have problems with connection and got every alert as planned. I loved the way I could search for a specific joint of meat and my desired level of cooking, and I could connect to Alexa, see a graph of the completed cook temperatures and even share my cooks online.
The best meat thermometers help you to avoid plating up undercooked meat that could be unsafe to eat.This digital meat thermometer is designed with a 225-degree rotating probe, as well as a rotating screen. Not only does that mean you'll be able to use the device with either hand, but it also means you won't have to touch the probe after removing it from the meat. The thermometer is also able to produce results in as little as 2 to 3 seconds. Then choose your perfect temperature by scrolling through choices via the ‘taste’ button – well done, medium, medium rare or rare. You know you’ve hit the right spot when you use the prongs and hear a beep that shows your dish is perfect.
Marissa Rothkopf Bates, Taking the Temperature of the Mighty Thermapen, Newsweek, February 20, 2014 Never touch the probe of your digital thermometer after removing it from a piece of meat, as it will be hot enough to burn the skin. We then enlisted the thermometers for an all-day cooking marathon, roasting four-pound slabs of top sirloin until they reached medium rare. For instant-read and clip-on thermometers, we also deep-fried French fries and tortilla chips, in each case using multiple units to compare accuracy and usability. Along the way, we tried as many of the thermometers’ special features (such as temperature alarms or mobile apps) as possible, so we could mimic how they would function in the real world.
Temperature accuracy and range:Look for thermometers that are advertised with accuracy within ±2˚F, which is a range of accuracy most good thermometers can promise. This will help you ensure food safety as well as preferred doneness.
