This barbecue fork takes all the guesswork out of grilling meats. With its built-in digital thermometer, the fork supplies accurate temperature readings in either Fahrenheit or Celsius when its tines are inserted into a cut of meat. A chart on the back of the handle provides a quick reference to the minimum temperature requirements recommended by the USDA for food safety. Because the thermometer reads all temperatures between 0 and 220 degrees Fahrenheit (-18 to 104 degrees Celsius), it can also be used to determine how thawed or cool meats removed from the freezer or refrigerator are at the start of cooking.
This digital fork has a handy hold button that locks in the current temperature reading on the large, 0.5-inch display panel. An on/off button and automatic shutoff extend the forks battery life. Other non-battery-powered features include a comfortable, nonslip rubberized handle, sturdy stainless-steel handles that easily lift large cuts of meat, and tapered tines that, when withdrawn from the meat, let the meat juices drain back in. This digital fork thermometer runs on one AAA battery (included), and is covered by a lifetime warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde
