MeasuPro sent me an Ultra-Fast Cooking Thermometer to test out and review!
I’m a big fan of kitchen gadgets. Just not all kitchen gadgets. If a device or tool is going to serve one purpose, then it has to be a critical one.
Like, making sure meat is up to the proper temp before serving it to your guests.
I have several instant read thermometers that I’ve collected over the years.
They’ve come in handy from now and again, but can be somewhat impractical when you’re roasting something for an extended period of time.
Cooking thermometers, however, that can be prodded into a large piece of meat, and then left to do the work of measuring temperature until the desired level has been reached?
MeasuPro Ultra-Fast Cooking Thermometer
If you’ve never used anything like the MeasuPro Ultra-Fast Cooking Thermometer, you’re in for a treat!
No more peeking in the oven door to check for a roast’s doneness, or hovering in the kitchen to keep an eye on traditional thermometer.
You simply stick the probe into the meat, set the digital thermometer to your desired temperature OR for a certain amount of time, and then it’ll beep once it hits the limit.
(Just don’t fall asleep like Julie did when she was making Julia’s “Boeuf Bourguignon.”)
I had a lovely pork roast prepped for Sunday dinner last week, and about a million other things to do while it cooked (dishes, laundry, writing, movie-watching…).
After preheating the oven and getting my marinated pork loin into its baking dish, I simply drove the six inch oven safe probe into the thickest part of the meat, placed the digital reader on my counter (although it would have also stuck magnetically to my stove), set the thermometer to alert me once the internal temp reached 145°F, and then went about my business.
There’s an option of using an alarm or not (I did), as well as a few other bells and whistles.
EASY PEASY. I loved it.
