Yeah for BBQ season! We have a grill, we have different meats, but then hubby and I start butting heads on WHAT to BBQ. He feels safer with beef, because even if it's still pink, it's safe to eat, I prefer marinated chicken breasts, but he is always worried about under cooking the meat and getting everyone sick. The battle is now over (and I win) with the Instant Read Digital Meat Thermometer that I received in exchange for my honest opinion.
This thermometer does require a AAA battery, and one is not included, so be sure to have one on hand. I had to scrounge around to find one. Battery was easy to install, a quick wash of the probe and we were ready to rock and roll. I like that this thermometer folds up. No worrying about sticking myself when I'm digging around in the random kitchen utensils drawer. When the thermometer is folded up, it turns the device off, great battery saver right there.
Hubby threw some chicken on the grill, and we kept randomly poking at it. We were able to insert the thermometer into the chicken easily, but it seemed to take a while for the thermometer to read the internal temperature. This may have been because the battery I had was kind of old, but I just pulled the chicken to the side of the grill and let it sit there till it's done reading. We slightly over cooked the chicken, but overall was still more juicy that when I convinced him to cook chicken in the past. We both felt better knowing that the chicken was fully cooked, and did not have to keep cutting open a section of the thick part to see if the juices ran clear yet.
Clean up was easy with a soapy sponge and a quick rinse off and dry. I folded the thermometer up and it shut off automatically. When unfolded, it turns back on, but does have an ON/OFF button if you wish to have it open and off. When it does come back on, it is always in Celsius, but a quick tap on the C/F button and it switches over into Fahrenheit. The range of this thermometer is pretty impressive going from -58F to 527F. I did not get close to hitting either of those extremes, but we did use it to test the air temperature that was blowing out of the car vents when we were not sure if the air conditioner was working properly or not.
