 New Digital Meat Thermometer Predicts the Time Left to Cook

 

New AcuRite Digital Thermometer features a leave-in probe that monitors food temperature during cooking,
predicts when food will be ready, and alerts with a wireless pager when dinner is done.


Lake Geneva, Wisconsin October, 2013 – Effectively preparing the perfect family dinner or holiday menu requires advance planning to ensure that the main course and all the side dishes are ready to be served hot and on time. Serving a superb spread can be a daunting balancing act, especially when cooking for a large guest list. This November, AcuRite takes the guesswork out of mealtime multitasking with its Digital Meat Thermometer, a new kitchen gadget that predicts the time needed for food to reach its target temperature.

The new digital cooking thermometer features a patent-pending algorithm that measures and monitors the cooking process, then applies a series of estimating methods to calculate the remaining cooking time. Whether your next culinary delight includes beef, veal, chicken, pork, poultry, lamb or fish, simply turn the rotary dial to select the meat type and preferred cooking doneness. The thermometer will automatically indicate the target temperature based on the USDA recommendation for your dish. Insert the temperature probe into the food for an instant readout of the temperature and for leave-in temperature monitoring during the cooking process. The probe is stainless steel and features a 3 ft. (1 m) cord that is heat resistant up to 700º, perfect for a variety of cooking methods including oven-roasting a turkey, slow-cooker meals, smoking meats and fish, grilling or barbequing.

Once the food is in the oven and cooking begins, the countdown tracks exactly how much time is left until the food will be ready. The chef can focus on planning the rest of the meal or attend to other preparations. The device includes a wireless pager that works in tandem with the thermometer within a 200 ft (60 m) range, and alerts when the food is ready with sound, light and vibration. This convenient cooking gadget allows the chef to entertain guests and not be tied to the stove or repeatedly check on the status of the food.

In addition to ensuring meat is cooked to a safe internal temperature, the thermometer also functions as a countdown or count up kitchen timer, up to 9 hours, 59 seconds. The display is backlit for low-light viewing while grilling outdoors. The thermometer measures temperatures ranging from -40ºF to 450ºF (-40ºC to 232ºC), is NSF safety certified and comes with a one-year warranty.

The AcuRite Digital Meat Thermometer retails at $39.99 and is available November 2013 at http://www.acurite.com.
