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. Using a pocket thermometer ensures that you’re keeping up to these guidelines of safe and delicious eating. The convenient clip and protection sheath allows you to keep the thermometer on hand when grilling, roasting or cooking. The clip can be used for mounting and the thermometer can be calibrated. The pocket thermometer measures from 50 to 550 degrees Fahrenheit. The 5” probe is long enough to reach the internals of most meats like burger patties, chickens and turkeys.
