As anyone in the Food Service or Catering industry will know, a food thermometer is a day to day tool you can’t go without. Whether it is for checking the temperature of meat, poultry, or egg products, using a thermometer is the only sure way of ensuring both safety and the food is cooked to the desired taste (i.e. rare, medium, well done etc.).
From a food safety perspective these types of foods must be cooked at a minimum internal temperature in order to remove any harmful bacteria. A food thermometer is also required to make certain prepared food is kept at the appropriate temperature prior to being served.
Since a food thermometer is such an important tool in food preparation, making sure you have a fully functioning, reliable thermometer available at all times is crucial. There are a number of factors which differentiate a high quality thermometer from their cheap and nasty counterparts. Below we outline the 5 key reasons you shouldn’t be tempted by the low price point, and encourage you to stay well clear of the poorly manufactured brands.
