Product Description

Taylor Professional 9306N Splash-Proof Dual Temp Infrared/Thermocouple Thermometer

The Taylor 9306N is a combination quick-read professional infrared surface temperature thermometer and instant read thermocouple thermometer. Originally developed for the food service channel, this thermometer provides extreme accuracy for serious cooks. Taylor designed a thermometer combination perfect for outdoor use, in home tasks and professional cooking applications. The fast reading 4 inches foldable stainless steel probe has an FDA approved 1.5mm step-down tip to make smaller punctures in meats to keep juices in. With the addition of a non-contact infrared laser thermometer you can keep growing concerns for food safety at bay eliminating cross-contamination. This dual function thermometer provides exemplary consistency with temperature measurement and is a kitchen essential. The 9306N really does it all and is a great value compared to the similarly featured and more than twice the price competition – just read the Amazon reviews for proof!

Customer Reviews

The thermometer is extremely accurate and (for me) easy to use.
Amazon Customer
All in all, a great purchase and something I highly recommend to someone who takes their cooking seriously.
Steven
I use it to determine the surface temperature of searing pans when I want to put a nice sear on steak.

A fast-reading thermometer probe is essential for grilling and roasting, and this one works as well as any I have tried, equilibrating in a couple of seconds. Except for getting the temperature of boiling water right on, I have not checked their accuracy claims, but the probe is certainly accurate enough for kitchen use, and given that the readings come from a thermocouple, I would expect the probe measures to be good within a degree or so, maybe better. Taylor is a leading maker of both scientific and consumer temperature-measuring devices or all kinds, so also I would expect the circuitry and durability will be good.

The thing that distinguishes the Taylor from the popular and similarly priced Thermapen, though, is the infrared thermometer. This function reads the surface temperature of objects using IR (heat radiation). For cooks, the main use is to check the temperature of preheated frypans, woks, etc., a function I find myself using at least as often as I use the probe. With a little experimentation, you can figure out the ideal temperature for browning meat, sweating vs. browning onions, or cooking pancakes, stirfries, etc. This makes it much easier to avoid either steaming food you meant to caramelize or burning your good olive oil and smoking up the kitchen. The IR function is not perfect, however. It defaults to a reading simply of "high" somewhere around 500 degrees F., which is not high enough for blackened fish or many wok applications. A more serious limitation is that it does not read effectively off of highly reflective surfaces, such as most stainless cookware, presumably because the probe also reads the temperature of whatever cool surface you see in the reflection.

I really like this product. It has a nice solid compact feel, the buttons are ambidextrous (though a little easier to use correctly in the right hand), its water proof, easy to clean, etc. The probe tip seems to be the same size as most of the other thermocouple thermometers (3mm diameter with a reduced 2mm tip that is 10mm long.
It seems to be fairly accurate, the probe shows the temp of boiling water around 211 and took less then 2 seconds to go from 65 to 211 which is really fast. The infrared part of it is a little harder to gauge. I pointed it at a few things along with my MicroTemp Pro and the Pro normally showed a few deg hotter then the Taylor. Nether gauged boiling water very well since it is "clear". I can't really find anything else that I know should have a defined temp to test it on. But the infrared is really only useful for measuring things like frying pans and the inside of your oven, neither of which require single degree accuracy. The other really (ok relatively) cool thing is they included a built in led light along with the infrared thermometer, while meant for aiming, this is also nice for checking things in a dark oven.
I have never used the Thermapen, which seems to be its chief competition. I could see where the Thermapen could be simpler to use since it is just a probe, and a little easier to read since it has just the temp on its display. But neither of those things seem to much of a draw back vs a built in infrared thermometer for about the same price.

I bought this one because it has dual readings and was told it took readings as quick as 3 seconds.Don't get me wrong this is a good product but, I'm a chef and two of my coworkers have the Thermopen. The thermopen takes readings almost instantly kicking the crap out of my Taylor 9306. My Taylor 9306 has never taken a temp in 3 seconds. my advice is if you work as a chef/cook and need temps really fast spend the extra money on the thermopen. If not this a good product and has worked correctly every time it just takes at least 10 seconds to get your final temp from the probe. The surface temp reader is accurate and instant.

I had one of these for a little over three years. It received pretty light use, but was handy. Then it started to malfunction and is now dead. After eliminating the obvious possibility that the batteries had run down, the most likely suspect seems to be the membrane switch assembly on the front. I contacted Taylor about repair. Although they still market the unit, they replied:

"Unfortunately we do not have any repair parts or schematics for repair of the button circuits on our thermometers. The unit would need to be replaced."

I will replace it with a Thermapen, as I have no interest in buying an electronic thermometer that only lasts a few years and cannot be repaired.

Three years later, I have two Thermapens. They have the display oriented in the right direction, and are faster and more durable than the taylor.

I received this thermometer as a gift, 2 years ago, when I had asked for a digital instant-read thermometer. Unfortunately the well-meaning gift-giver was not a chef, and chose this one based on marketing hype. It works as advertised, but the display faces the WRONG WAY. It looks like it should work, at first, but as soon as the probe is unfolded, it faces you, forcing you to hold the unit as though you were going to stab yourself instead of the expected probe-out position.

Uh, sorry, that's dead wrong. I do NOT want to hold my arm over the boiling liquid, steaming oven pan, or whatever. It is inconvenient and unpleasant at a minimum; downright dangerous at worst. The display needs to face sideways (as it does on the Thermapen competitor). I've tried to like this unit--after all, it was given with love--but every time I use it, this one problem drives me nuts. I can't believe that anyone with serious kitchen experience was consulted as to the design.

Net: save yourself the hassle and potential injury by getting the Thermapen for the same price.
