For the last two weeks I've been sharing my favorite kitchen tools. First we had the microplane. Then last week, we had the long handled kitchen tongs.
This week I have another tool that I love --this digital probe thermometer. This isn't any particular brand or recommended by any cooking gurus. But I love this thermometer. It reads instantly. You stick it in the meat and within a few seconds it tells you the internal temperature of whatever meat you're cooking.
I can use it on the grill.
I can use it on the stove.
I can use it when I'm oven roasting.
I can use it with the crockpot.
I can use it for chicken, pork, and beef.
I just pop off the cover. Stick it in the meat and wah-lah, within a few seconds I know if the meat is done or if it needs a few more minutes. I love that the cover lists the desired internal temperatures for the various meats. The button on the right also makes it switch to centigrade, if that's your preference. I just love this digital probe thermometer.
I've got one more week of sharing kitchen tools. What are your favorite kitchen tools?
