Ready to use within one second of turning on, the Polder Digital Instant Read thermometer reads temperatures from 14 to 392 degrees F or, if you prefer, from -10 to 200 degrees C. A button on the back allows you to switch easily between types, and the thermometer also has a memory button to record and instantly recall minimum and maximum temperatures. If you are making fudge (hard-ball stage 250 to 266 degrees F), roasting a 12-pound turkey (180 to 185 degrees F), or warming up a baby's bottle (100 degrees F), this is the thermometer you need. It also comes with a protective plastic sleeve. --Dana Van Nest. Features: Min/max temperature memory recall. USDA food temperature chart included. Extra large LCD and numeral for easy reading.
