If you've ever opened the oven door to check on a roast only to watch the heat escape while an "instant read" thermometer measures temperature, you'll appreciate this impressively-accurate, remote cable thermometer. Simply insert its high-heat stainless steel probe into meat, shut the oven door, and monitor internal food temperature on a large, easy-to-read digital display. You can even program an alarm to sound when food has reached a desired temperature. Predetermined settings are also available. This capability is especially useful for smoking, barbecuing, or any "low and slow" technique--eliminating the need to check on food and allow precious smoke to escape. Unlike other remote probe thermometers, heat resistance makes this versatile tool ideal for candy making or deep fat frying. A special clip secures the probe to your saucepan. Plus, since the Proaccurate withstands temperatures up to 482 degrees Fahrenheit, you won't melt through several probes in the course of a year's cooking. A magnetic back and folding stand let you store the thermometer on a counter or stove. A handy 24-hour count-up, count-down timer also functions solo to aid any cooking task. This commercial-quality thermometer is calibrated to the National Sanitation Foundation standards--the highest standards achievable. It runs on a single AAA battery, included with purchase. --Mary Park
Perfect for roasting or grilling. Choose the type of meat or poultry and the doneness desired. The unit has been pre-programmed with 6 meat/poultry choices and various doneness temperatures. The pre-programmed temperatures are based on USDA safe cooking temperatures. The TASTE mode will not allow the user to undercook when it is not safe to do so. Both the taste chosen and the temperature will be displayed during cooking. Simply insert the probe into the food. Place the food in the oven or barbecue and close the oven door (or grill cover) directly over the probe cable. Alert Mode: This feature allows the user to set a desired cooking temperature. This is perfect when the user prefers a different temperature than has been pre-programmed. For candy or deep frying, attach the stainless steel clip to the saucepan edge and insert the probe into the mixture. Set the desired internal food temperature using the ALERT mode, then wait for the alarm to indicate when the cooking is done. It’s that easy. Complete instructions with candy and oil temperature guides are included. The control module can sit on a counter top or the magnet can attach to a convenient surface. DO NOT attach to a hot barbecue. The plastic case will melt. In MEAT mode, the cooking temperature is continuously displayed along with the set temperature, type of meat and taste preference. When using the TIMER mode, the time counting up or down is shown at the top of the module. It counts down or up by minutes. The timer alarms for 60 seconds when the set time is reached. Note: Remove sticker from display before use.
