Have you ever served under cooked meat to your family or guests? I have done that a few times over the past year, when a roast has been much too rare, or chicken has come out of the oven still pink. So when I was sent this MeasuPro Digital Cooking Thermometer to review I was hopeful it would eliminate these issues.
This is nothing like the dial style thermometers I have used for meat in the past; this is an electronic thermometer. One of my favorite things about this is that I don’t have to open the oven door and let all the heat out to check for doneness, because the probe has a thin cable that can be close in an oven door. So the display sits on the counter, and I can read the temperature of the meat.
The thermometer is programmable, and it includes a list of pre-programmed meats along with levels of desired doneness – rare, medium rare, medium and well done. It can measure a range of temperatures from 32°F to 392°F, and it has an LCD display that tells you the exact temperature of the meat.
After using this for a few weeks I can’t believe I went so long cooking without it! I set the temperature I want the meat to reach, and an alarm goes off when it is done. It is so simple, and eliminates the stress and guesswork about when dinner is ready. Since I can see the progress of the temperature a glance it is easier to gauge when dinner will be ready.
I bought an expensive beef tenderloin roast last week, which I have never been brave enough to cook before. I was always worried about buying an expensive cut of meat and then burning or under cooking it. But with the thermometer to tell me when it was done it came out perfectly!
So if you want to have your meat cooked perfectly every time, check out the MeasuPro, which is available on Amazon.com.
