It is important to know internal cooking temperatures when preparing meat because they will help you ensure your food is safe to eat and cooked deliciously with the consistency of a professional chef!

What Is Doneness?

What Is Doneness?

According to Merriam-Webster, doneness is defined as, “the condition of being cooked to the desired degree.” Often, when cooking meat, doneness is expressed by whether it is rare, medium-rare, medium, medium-well or well-done. Always place the tip of the probe into the thickest portion of meat.

Remove It Early To Avoid Overcooking

Remove It Early To Avoid Overcooking

Due to a phenomenon commonly known as carryover cooking, meat will continue to cook once it has been removed from an oven or grill. How long it will continue to cook itself will depend largely on its mass and the temperature at which it was being cooked.

    At first I though it didn't work

    At first I though it didn't work. I tested it the very first day when it arrived just in boiling water, it reached 100C just fine. But when I started cooking Italian meringue the next day, the thermometer needle didn't want to climb past 100C, even though my husband IR-gun showed a higher temperature. Turned out that the prob has to be at least 3cm deep in the sugar syrup to show correct temperature. Adjusting the thermometer at an angle in my pot solved the issue.
