It is made of premium grade stainless steel, the probe inserts easily into roasting meats and poultry and gives a fast temperature read-out. It is accurate to within 2 degrees, the thermometer’s high visibility red pointer reads a dual scale from 130 to 190 degrees Fahrenheit (54 to 88 degrees Celsius), and can even be recalibrated for continued accuracy. The thermometer may be used on meats cooked in a conventional oven, microwave, grill, rotisserie, and smoker, and since the glass lens is oven-proof, it can be left in meats during oven cooking (though not broiling). The protective sheath for the thermometer features a pocket clip and loop to conveniently hold the probe. A five-year warranty covers the thermometer against defects.
