It doesn’t matter what season it is, there is always a reason to treat yourself to a well-cooked meal! The Taylor 5939N Classic Meat Thermometer will help you get those results easily. A kitchen thermometer is the ONLY way to accurately measure the doneness level of proteins for taste and food safety reasons. This over sized 2.75-inch dial with large print even has the USDA recommended temperatures listed for you to ensure a prefect results. With the 4.5-inch stainless steel stem there is plenty of room to make sure the stem is centered in the thickest part of the meat for the most accurate readings. Another great feature in the adjustable temp gauge on the outside of the dial – set this to your desired temperature for quick and easy readings. This thermometer is oven AND grill safe – it is meant to be left in the meat during cooking to let you see the progress of the temperature rising. Taylor has also certified this product with NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) so that it meets all the requirements for the food service industry. This thermometer will make you look like a pro - right in your own home! Note: The readable part of the pointer is the side WITHOUT the round end. When you receive the thermometer the pointer will be pointing to the worded side of the dial – it will fully swing around to the numbered scale during the cooking process. --Fred Brack

This meat thermometer is fantastic and I am thrilled with it every time I use it. Two wonderful features worth mentioning are first of all the red arrow on the outside of the thermometer which you turn to the exact final cooking temperature. After setting the arrow, all you have to do is check to see when the temperature has reached it...set it, and forget having to check again what temperature is needed or worrying about reading the dial! The second great feature is that this thermometer starts registering at 120 degrees. When cooking a roast to medium rare this is an invaluable feature as most thermometers don't begin registering the temperature until 140 degrees which is too high and your roast is too well done! I have washed it in the dishwasher and so far the face has not steamed up like my last thermometer. Thank you Amazon for carrying this wonderful product!

When I brought one of these home a few years ago, I was very pleased with it. It was easy to read, sturdy as a fireplug and had a "test" mark on the scale at boiling-point so at any time I could be sure it was reading accurately. I used it for 3-4 years, and it always checked-out in a pan of boiling water when I'd test it. Life was good and so was dinner. But how long do you expect it to last? Are they supposed to be replaced every every 3-4 years? I'd have liked it to last longer...

Last Christmas, before sinking the thermometer into the Christmas ribeye roast, I checked it in a pan of boiling water and found it was reading 12 degrees cool. Yikes, I could have over-cooked and ruined $100 worth of meat if I hadn't known to pull it out of the oven 12 degrees cooler than I had planned. After dinner that night I threw the thermometer away.

Owing to it's build quality, I think this is the best of the dial-read meat-thermometers. It lasted better than the Pyrex thermometer we had before it. But none of these stay accurate forever. The needles get sticky or something else goes out of whack, and then they're useless.

I've had bad luck with digital thermometers too, so I replaced the Taylor dial thermometer with an old fashioned glass / alcohol thermometer (Taylor Classic Roast/Yeast Thermometer). I checked the new thermometer's accuracy and it was dead on. If no one breaks it, it will remain accurate forever. Yes, the glass thermometers are a little trickier to read ... but when you have a house full of dinner guests, and an expensive roast in the oven, what's more important: an accurate reading? Or an inaccurate reading at a glance? I'll take the former.

Happy cooking ...

I like to cook but the only time my wife usually let's me is during Thanksgiving. The reason is simply, the turkey is too heavy for her to lift. This Taylor thermometer is excellent because it's easy to read, simple to use and is very accurate. In addition, the theremometer has a red sliding temperature gauge that permits the cook to pre-set the ultimate temperature desired. When the final, desired temperature is reached, the cook easily sees the cooking needle at the spot as the red, pre-set gauge. This makes it easy for the cook to cook at the correct temperature. I have used this Taylor thermometer for over ten years. It is well built,simple to use, lasts, is easy to read and is accurate. What more can any cook desire?

Well, I love the giant dial and clear markings. But one quick rinse to get the oil that naturally spatters up onto it, while making my first roast, broke it. Water got into the mechanism as this is NOT DISHWASHER SAFE. Not even rinse-safe. So if you plan to rinse clean your thermometer, consider the other Taylor model 5947 which IS DISHWASHER SAFE.

NOTE THE DESCRIPTION FORM AMAZON IS INCORRECT--IT IS NOT DISHWASHER SAFE according to the Taylor website itself. Here are ALL the features they list:

5939N Classic Meat Thermometer
Features
Large, easy-to-read 2 3/4" dial.
Range 120°F to 212°F.
Preparation scale for various meats printed on dial.
Red pointer.
Glass lens.
Adjustable temperature indicator.
Stainless steel 4 1/2" stem.

UPDATE! THE ABOVE IS ALSO INCORRECT: Taylor made a mistake on their own website. Turns out NONE of their thermometers that you can leave in the oven are water-proof, dishwasher safe or can even be rinsed in water. So BEWARE!

This is a great meat thermometer. I used this while cooking a corned beef brisket in a pot. It takes a few seconds for it to get an acurate read but it works well. The construction is sturdy and its easy to read. When using it to test the temp. of my corned beef simmering in the pot the display tended to fog up a bit, but I think that would happen to any meat thermometer when put too close to steam.

Only downside is when I washed it, some water got underneath the disply and into the unit itself. I was able to shake it out but it was not easy. I would recommend washing this thermometer carefully and not running direct water over the display or submerging it.

This is a no frills product. The emphasis is on sturdy construction. The dial is large and easy to see in the oven. I am glad I bought this and would do so again if needed.
