For Baking, Roasting and Smoking
Oven-Safe Thermometers or Digital Thermometers with a Probe
Depending on your needs, we offer two types of thermometer for baking, roasting or smoking the main course.
As the name implies, Oven-Safe Thermometers can be left in the oven or smoker throughout the cooking process. You simply insert a stainless steel temperature probe deep into an uncooked turkey or ham, being careful not to touch bone, then stick the meat into the oven. Make sure the face of the thermometer is facing the oven window, if it has one, for easy viewing. As an added convenience, AcuRite’s analog oven-safe thermometer models display proper cooking temperatures right on the dial.
Digital Meat Thermometers with a wired probe make this process even easier. Like oven-safe thermometers, the probe is inserted into the meat during cooking, but the temperature probe features a heat-safe wire that the oven door can close over, leading to a digital display that conveniently sits on the countertop or magnetically adheres to the oven. The display shows the current meat temperature, and allows you to set an alarm for when dinner reaches your desired temperature.
As a general guideline, poultry should be cooked to 165°F, fresh/raw ham should be cooked to 160°F, and pre-cooked can be heated to 140°F. Simply cook to the recommended temperature and enjoy. It’s that easy!
