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 cooking thermometers are poked into the meats while they cook so that you can keep accurate track of the internal temperature. The cooking thermometer is entirely waterproof, allowing you to use for boiling meats. The waterproof cooking thermometer comes with a protective sheath, features a min and max button for multiple testings, and a hold function. The compact pen-style thermometer allows a quick temperature reading for both liquids and solids. This waterproof digital cooking thermometer measures from -58 to 392 degrees Fahrenheit (-50 to 200 degrees Celsius). The 2-¾” probe is long enough to reach the internal areas of most meats like patties, chickens, turkeys, and shallow liquids; and the ⅞” LCD screen is easily legible.
