For years I used a bulky analog meat thermometer, labeled with various types of meat and giving you a guideline for when to pull something out of the oven. Based on whether you wanted it rare, medium or well done. The face of the thermometer was cloudy, crowded and difficult to read.

We finally decided to test out greater precision with the Salter Instant Read Digital Thermometer.

Now, instead of a general guideline, I can tell exactly what the internal temperature is of a roast or meatloaf. The thermometer reads quickly (in a few seconds), wipes clean easily and is then tossed into my utensil drawer. It has worked as expected giving the readout in about 5 seconds. That speed is important because ovens are hot and you will have your hand in there. Using a thermometer has improved my cooking a great deal because I can be more flexible with my cooking temperatures. I love that I am no longer slicing into the meat to look at it. It’s well made, has a clear display and – as far as I can tell at home – very accurate.

The probe is a very useful length and allows temperatures to be taken without one’s hands getting too close to the heating elements of the oven or too close to a pan. The display is easy to read and the temperature readings themselves appear to be extremely accurate. I did think that this thermometer was no different to others I had used but was pleasantly surprised. From its fast reading, clear face and battery saving mode this unit suited me perfectly.

With Christmas approaching and a 6kg rib of beef to cook for family and friends I’m so glad that I have this to help me. It’s absolutely fantastic!
