Get it right every time. With this easy to use remote system you will always know when perfectly done is about to become overdone.
With the risks of e. coli and other food borne illnesses associated with undercooked meat, inexperienced cooks often choose to error on the safe side, unnecessarily roasting a once succulent duck breast into a charred, leathery state of submission. To avert disease and enjoy juicy meats, Weber created this digital thermometer system, equipped with a beeper remote and a temperature probe.
The accurate thermometer allows users to choose between several preset options based on USDA/FDA standards for their selected meat. After choosing the appropriate setting, users insert the probe into the thickest section of desired meat, taking care to pierce cleanly in one sweep to prevent overflowing juices. The probe fares well inside hot barbecues ranging from -4 to 482 degrees F and reads meat temperatures up to 199 degrees F. However, temperature readings may be affected by abnormally long cooking times. As the meat begins to cook, the beeper remote can be clipped onto an apron pocket or belt loop, allowing the chef to tend to other tasks. When the meat reaches its wellness point as designated by internal temperature, the probe sends a digital signal to the beeper, triggering its alarm. The probe and remote communicate at full signal for up to 80 feet, though walls and other blockage will reduce the range potential. The remote also beeps with increasing volume when losing contact with the probe sensor to insure that the user is aware. This thermometer system also can be used in ovens under similar circumstances. This item comes equipped with two AAA batteries and is imported. Weber may offer a warranty for this product. The digital thermometer measures 4-3/4 by 2-1/2 inches with 1-inch thickness and weighs 1 pound upon shipping. --Jessica Reuling
