Auto-Cal Needle Probe (Food Thermometer)
This jumbo display, waterproof Auto-Cal Needle Probe (Food Thermometer), is incorporated with an auto-calibration feature and is ideal for measuring food temperatures during handling and cooking. Food handlers cannot tell if food is cooked safely by sight, smell or taste. The only method to ensure that food is internally cooked to the right temperature and that hazardous bacteria are eliminated is to use a food thermometer.
A food thermometer is required for more than just meat and poultry. All cooked foods must reach a safe minimum internal temperature to avoid food poisoning. A food thermometer is also needed after food is cooked to ensure the temperature does not fall into the danger zone. Perishable foods’ temperature “danger zone” is between 5°C and 60°C. If perishable goods have been in this risk zone for more than two hours (one hour at 32°C or higher), they are no longer safe to eat. Knowledge of the “danger zone” is essential for buffet and potluck-style gatherings where it is easier to lose track of time and food might sit out for a more extended period.
The Auto-Cal Needle Probe has a needle tip probe designed to produce a faster response when used in less dense food per FDA Food Code 4-302.12 (B). Accurate, readable, and durable, the Auto-Cal Probe Thermometer is the go-to digital thermometer to measure food temperature during cooking.
Benefits of using the Auto-Cal Probe Thermometer include illness prevention, as it ensures that hazardous germs are destroyed and allows specific portions of meat to be cooked to exact temperatures. It is also simple to use, cost-saving and eliminates guesswork during cooking. Therefore, ensuring food such as meat will stay juicy and tender as it is cooked at the correct temperature.
