And start using a Meat Thermometer 🌡️ 

Enough with the guesswork already and learn about the wonders and benefits of using a meat thermometer.

  • Ensures Food Safety by killing harmful bacteria such as Salmonella and E. coli.

  • Prevents Overcooking retaining its juiciness and flavor.

  • Consistent Results make it easier to replicate your cooking success in future meals.

  • Saves Money: Overcooked meats can lead to waste, while undercooked meats might need to be discarded for safety reasons. A meat thermometer helps you cook meats right the first time, reducing waste and saving money.

Tips for Using a Meat Thermometer

Know the Right Temperature: For example, poultry should reach 165°F (74°C), while beef, pork, lamb, and veal can vary depending on the desired doneness (145°F or 63°C for medium rare, 160°F or 71°C for medium, etc.).

Insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the meat, avoiding fat, bone, or gristle. For whole poultry, the thigh is a good spot, making sure not to touch the bone.

Start checking the temperature as you approach the estimated cooking time to avoid overcooking.

Allow meat to rest for a few minutes before cutting into it to let juices redistribute.

Calibrate Your Thermometer by inserting it into a glass of ice water (it should read 32°F or 0°C) or boiling water (212°F or 100°C at sea level).

Clean After Every Use: To prevent cross-contamination, clean your meat thermometer with hot, soapy water after each use.

Incorporating a meat thermometer into your cooking routine is a simple step with significant benefits, from enhancing food safety to improving the taste and texture of your meals.
