Digital Meat Thermometers

Take the Guess Work Out of Cooking

 

We’ve all done it a few times – under or over cooking meat. In the case of chicken, one extreme can lead to salmonella and the other to a dry and tough chicken breast. There are very specific temperatures that various meats need to reach for safety reasons. For example, chicken needs to reach an internal temperature of 165° F.

Without any idea of a meats internal temperature, while cooking, many of us have a tendency to overcook our meats just to be on the safe side. This is can be frustrating when trying to fix a Sensational Recipe.

Need More Convincing? Here are more advantages of using a digital meat thermometer:

    • It’s better to ‘cook to temperature’ than hoping that a meat will take as long  to cook as it did last time.

    • Reduce your stress while grilling by having an exact internal temperature – you want to be enjoying yourself anyway!

    • You can determine your perfect temperature for meats. For example, the FDA recommends cooking salmon to a temperature of 145° F. You may determine that you enjoy it at that level or you may prefer 155° F.

    • Most digital meat thermometers are inexpensive, so it won’t break the bank. When choosing a meat thermometer, digital types do have a distinct advantage over older more traditional, analog ‘dial’ thermometers. The digital thermometers provide a more precise temperature reading in a matter of seconds. This will keep less heat from escaping your oven or outdoor grill while your are checking the meat’s temperature..
