An instant-read thermometer has several advantages.
In just a few seconds it gives a temperature reading where the probe is inserted. This makes it ideal for use with barbecued meats; you can check for readiness without cutting into the piece.
It is also non-electronic so there are no batteries to replace. And, to top it off, it comes with a protective tube (with a shirt pocket clip) that is cross-drilled to double as an extension handle to protect your fingers over a hot grill or boiling pot.
Sure to become a favorite in the kitchen or around the barbecue, it has a 1 3/4" diameter shatterproof plastic dial with a 5" long metal probe.
Instructions and recommended meat temperature guide included.
