I was so happy to test out this digital meat thermometer from River Kitchen. I have a really old fork type thermometer that takes forever to get a reading on. This one from River Kitchen is so fast it's amazing! It's very easy to use. There is an on/off button in the middle and an option for Celsius or Fahrenheit. I also like that it's 8" long so you don't have to get your hands too close to the heat. I also like that it only leaves a very tiny hole when piercing the meat. My current fork one leaves two big holes and if I have to check a few different places in my meat, well it doesn't end up looking so nice!
We grilled steaks today and it was so easy to pierce the meat and get a reading. I couldn't believe how fast it was. My old one the meat would be starting to cool off by the time I got a temperature on it.
Our boys like their steaks well done.
This thermometer was super easy to clean. I just did a quick swipe with some soap and hot water to clean off the probe part of it. Then dried it off and put it back into it's sleeve. It does seem to need a little bit of force to get back into it's case but other than that I am very happy with it. I can't wait to use this on my chickens, turkeys, and roasts. When my mom comes up for a visit I'm going to let her test it out. She's been looking for one for her candy making. This might make her very happy!
