Determine the temperature of your food with ease, clarity and less fuss when you add the Taylor 9842 Digital Instant Read Thermometer to your kitchen tool collection. No need to open the oven to continually check on food temperature. Save time, precious oven heat and important moisture by trusting the Taylor digital thermometer. Insert the instrument's 6 stainless steel probe into a roast beef, turkey or ham and monitor progress on the large digital display. Magnets on the back allow you to mount the waterproof unit on a metal surface for convenience, and a generous 4-foot cord connects it to the probe. The control panel on the Taylor instant read thermometer sets the cooking time and temperature, and an alarm sounds when either is reached. The step down probe leaves a smaller puncture in food than typical thermometers. The Taylor digital thermometer folds flat for convenient compact storage in an antimicrobial sleeve that inhibits the growth of bacteria.
