About this deal

The digital display is easy to read and the main part of the unit is satisfyingly chunky in the hand and comfortable to hold. Sure, it’s old-fashioned, but if meat is all you need it for, and you can negotiate into and out of your oven, it’s a fine thermometer my parents would have loved to have when I was a kid. The thermometer itself is simple to use, with buttons for scrolling through the type of food you’re cooking, an OK button to select and, if you’re cooking lamb or beef, the option to choose a level of doneness.

A traditional dial probe, this thermometer has a wide display with readings to show when everything from fresh turkey to veal and cooked ham are ready to come out of the oven. First, the wooden case for the probe actually features a Bluetooth repeater that helps expand its range. Other features that are great to have include Bluetooth capability, ports for multiple probes, and an assortment of presets to take the guesswork of how to achieve the perfect roast.When not in use, the clever little thermometer that goes with it sits in a box that charges the battery. Many meat thermometers are actually designed to be left in the oven or grill and are resistant to fairly high temperatures. We found the set-up straightforward, and there are recipes to follow, as well as programmes for different meats and levels of doneness, temperature alerts and a timer. This is a straightforward instant-read digital thermometer that is designed to work on everything from your Sunday roast to a barbecue. We like a thermometer with a large digital display, even better if it has a backlight for extra readability.

Analog thermometers are harder to read accurately, and they contain mercury, which is harmful to you and the environment.Our Lab team has spent collective decades working in professional kitchens, developing recipes, and testing kitchen gear. He is deeply geeky when it comes to baking and the accuracy of his equipment, which is why he highly recommends the Thermoworks Chef Alarm for the perfect bake. Pre-set with safe temperatures for food set by the US Department of Agriculture, you can choose between one setting for both beef and veal, then lamb, pork and poultry.

Similarly, if you need to cook to a finishing standard you’re not used to, such as well-done, a meat thermometer can help you achieve the perfect internal temperature without overcooking. The UK Food Standards Agency says: 'Before you serve pork, poultry and minced meat, make sure it is steaming hot and cooked all the way through. These are also good for deep frying or sugar work, if you have a model that clips on to the side of the pan. Only the tip of the probe needs inserting to get a reading, making it good for burgers and sausages. Our recommendation: root through your couch cushions, find that extra penny, and get the Thermapen One instead.Always consult your user's manual to see if there are any additional, device-specific instructions for cleaning.
