This wireless meat thermometer is a must-have for any braai master that's looking to ensure his meat is cooked to perfection.

Featuring a touchscreen backlit display that will show you the temperature of two (included) probes at a glance. This means you can have two different steaks on the go, each cooked to a different preference.

It is highly portable and runs off 4x AAA batteries which means you can carry it around with ease, and continue with other food prep or sit back, relax and enjoy watching the game on TV while the meat cooks on the braai. Also see our folding meat thermometer if you only need a simple version.

Features

  • Large touch screen display with a blue backlight allows you to easily read the temp measurements of meat and food
  • Two probes are included which allows you to monitor two different meats at the same time
  • Ideal for beef, lamb, pork, and chicken usage
  • Not just for the braai this food thermometer can be used for roasts and baking as well
  • Create an alarm, and when it goes off the display alerts you to the alarm by flashing the screen from blue to orange. There is also an audible beep so you'll never miss
  • Wrapped with a silicone sleeve ensures that it is protected from being dropped or having anything spilled on it.
  • Portable display will show you, at a glance, the temperature of each probe. This means you could be watching the cricket or the rugby in one room while your meat is safely cooking outside on the braai.

How Do I Use a Probe Thermometer?

  1. Insert the stem of one or both of the probe thermometers into the thickest part of the meat or food. Place in the centre of the food if it is even in thickness.
  2. Wait at least 15 seconds for the reading to steady and then record the reading.

Don’t let the probe touch the grill, or bottom/sides of the oven or pan, because you won’t get an accurate temperature of your food.

What is the Temperature Danger Zone for Food?

The temperature danger zone for food is the term used to describe the temperature range where food is most at risk of developing harmful bacteria. Food in the danger zone is at risk of causing illness to anyone who handles or consumes it. Keeping food out of the danger zone will ensure it’s safe to eat by limiting the growth of bacteria.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) sets the danger zone between 8 °C and 60 °C, and this is the range you want to keep your food out of. This means that food is safest when it is either frozen, chilled, or heated beyond 60 °C.

Temperatures below 8 °C significantly slow bacteria growth – the colder it is, the harder for bacteria to multiply. It is important to note, however, that freezing food doesn’t eliminate bacteria. Therefore any food that is defrosted needs extra steps, such as cooking, to ensure that it’s safe to eat. Some bacteria can even steadily multiply at temperatures of -5 °C, and this is why you should always be careful when accepting frozen deliveries.

Bacteria is happiest when it is warm, and it will multiply the quickest between 20 °C and 50 °C. The optimum temperature for bacteria growth is 37 °C – the same temperature as the human body. Fortunately, controlling the temperature of food is relatively easy to do. However, you need to consider the storage of food items and how they are prepared before being consumed.
