Thermometers aren’t just for the pool – there are countless recipes and techniques that require a precise temperature, and thus a cooking thermometer! From pasteurizing liquid mixtures for hard cider to attaining that perfectly medium-rare steak, using a cooking thermometer takes the guesswork out of working in the kitchen. And, in the case of meats like pork or lamb, it can protect you from foodborne illnesses!
JB Prince, New York City’s top cookware store, has three essential cooking thermometers that every cook needs in their kitchen:
- Meat Thermometer – Also referred to as a “meat pen,” a meat thermometer is designed to measure the internal temperature of meat. This is essentially for judging whether a steak or burger is rare, medium-rare, medium- or well done. Never overcook a burger again!
- All-Purpose Digital Thermometers – From baked goods to achieving the perfect consistency in a caramel sauce, an all-purpose digital thermometer is a must-have. Opt for one with a long probe and connecting wire.
- Candy Thermometer – If baking is your prerogative, choose a versatile candy thermometer that can range from 100-degrees to 400-degrees Fahrenheit. This is perfect for boiling sugar and deep-frying.
Every chef knows that the more sophisticated recipes out there require a cooking thermometer. Never botch up a dish or dessert again because your temperature was miscalculated – visit JB Prince’s cookware supply section to find your essential cooking thermometers today or browse the online catalogue to get started today.
