I like that it matches my kitchen (black counter-tops).
Of course being pretty isn’t the main thing. It also works really well.
I had not been using a meat thermometer and just assuming that my meat was fine. Chicken (and other poultry) is supposed to be heated to 165°. Ground meats are supposed to be heated to 160°.
I cooked my chicken just like usual. Used the thermometer on it to see what the temperature had gotten to. It was still almost 40° low. That shocked me.
I put the chicken back in the oven and checked it again 10 minutes later and it was the proper temperature that time. Just a few minutes can make that critical difference.
I did the same with my meatloaf and once again I had not been cooking it quite long enough.
I will be using it on the turkey come Thanksgiving too. After all it is better to be safe than sorry.
The thermometer has a wide range of temperatures (-58°F to 662°F) or (-50°C to 350°C) and can be used for other things besides cooking meat ( making candy).
This meat thermometer is also easy to hold. It is pretty big and has a fairly large digital read out too so it is easy to see the numbers.
If you buy one you also get 5 free recipe eBooks with it that have recipes for chicken, ground beef, cooking on the grill, and crock pot recipes.
Plus it comes with a No Questions Asked Money Back Guarantee.
