It’s easy to lose track of time while barbecuing or entertaining; that’s why this paging thermometer/timer is such a good idea. Once the set temperature or time is reached, it activates the pager. To set the unit, simply select the type of meat you are cooking (beef, chicken, fish, etc.) and how you want it done (rare, medium rare, well done, etc.).
You can also set a countdown timer or override the pre-settings to suit personal preferences. The LCD screen displays the target temperature, the current temperature and estimate of the remaining cooking time, and can be momentarily backlit (useful when cooking outdoors at dusk).
The stainless-steel probe has a 3' long cord that will withstand temperatures up to 700°F/370°C. The pager alerts you within a 200' (60m) range of the thermometer.
Display runs on three AA batteries and pager runs on two AAA batteries that you supply.
