Digital Thermometer

A digital thermometer is the best & most accurate way to determine if foods have been cooked to the proper temperature. They may be used to gauge many beef cuts ranging from ribeyes, New York strip & eye of round steaks to determining if side dishes containing eggs such as Classic Squash Casserole have reached the proper temperature for the sake of food safety. It’s a simple tool to use & one that should be in every kitchen drawer, particularly when grilling & smoking meats as it takes the guess work out of cooking. There are two ways in which you may test to be certain a thermometer is providing accurate results. Plunging it in ice cold water should register 32 degrees F or 0 degrees C. Conversely, a reading in boiling water will result in a temperature of 212 degrees F or 100 degrees C.

How To Use A Digital Thermometer

Digital thermometers are available in many styles & they need not be complex. Although it may be helpful to invest in a model that gives the target temperature for certain non-negotiable foods such as chicken, a simple probe-style will clearly provide accurate results as well. Many of the devices offer a reading in Celsius or Fahrenheit so be certain it is set according to your own specific needs.

Meat cuts including flank steak & t-bones benefit greatly from the use of digital thermometers in order to determine whether it’s cooked to your specific taste. Use times provided in recipes as a guide, then simply insert the probe into the center of the thickest portion of beef in order to gauge the temperature. The reading will reveal whether a bit more cooking time is necessary or if it may be pulled from the heat.
