What is a cooking thermometer?
A cooking thermometer, also known as a meat thermometer, is a kitchen device which allows you to gauge when cooked foods have reached the minimal internal temperature for safe consumption, without having to cut through the meat or food.
Types of food thermometers
There are many types of food thermometers available which serve different functions. Some of the most popular types include:
- An instant-read thermometer is a food probe thermometer which takes an instant reading of your food temperature. They are available as both analogue and digital meat thermometers.
- An oven thermometer can be placed in the oven at high temperatures so you can check the exact temperature of your oven. This is because sometimes the temperature of an oven can slightly differ from the temperature setting.
- A fork thermometer is highly convenient for grilling which makes it the perfect option for the barbecue enthusiast. They can only be used once your food has nearly finished cooking.
In our assortment, you can choose from some of the best meat thermometers by renowned brands such as WMF, Eva Solo and Satake.
How to use a meat thermometer
It is important to read the suppliers instructions before using your food thermometer to ensure that you will get an accurate reading.
- Test the thermometer: You can use ice water or boiling water to confirm that your food thermometer is accurate.
- Calibrate the thermometer: If the thermometer does not reach the correct temperature after testing it, then you may need to recalibrate it. You can follow the supplier’s instructions to correctly adjust it.
- Proper placement: In order to get the right reading, it is very important that the cooking thermometer is placed in the thickest part of the food. You should make sure that it is not touching any fat, bone or gristle.
- Wait for the reading: To ensure that the temperature will read correctly, you should wait for the recommended amount of time.
- Read the thermometer: Once you have waited the correct amount of time, you can check the reading to see whether the food will need to be cooked for longer or if it is ready to take off the heat. If it has not met the minimum safe temperature requirements, you should continue to cook the food until it is does.
