For safe consumption, different meats need to meet the right internal temperature. This ensures harmful bacteria is eliminated and the meals you cook are prepared perfectly. Our digital meat thermometers are poked into the meats while they cook so that you can keep accurate track of the internal temperature. This digital thermometer is NSF certified to ensure that the performance is absolute in safe food consumption. This thermometer features a hold function to lock a temperature read. The digital thermometer has a built-in clip for mounting and has a quick response time for fast temperature readings. The meat thermometer measures from 40 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit (-40 to 230 degrees Celsius). The 3-⅛” probe is long enough to reach the internal areas of most meats like patties, chickens, turkeys, and roasts; and the 1-¼” LCD screen is easily legible.
