A simple fact of life in the kitchen is that some accessories are more valuable than others. Though the fun ones–such as cookware that mimics beer-can chicken, or toasters that demand to be used for making breakfast sandwiches–get all the attention, sometimes it is the little gadgets and accessories that come most in handy. Precision control is always appreciated, because after all, that’s what we all really want in the end: well-made food that is delicious. And all that starts with temperature.
The Sur La Table Dual Thermometer by CDN is a convenient tool to have onhand in the kitchen. Measuring both surface temperature and internal temperature, the handheld gadget features a lot of usability in a small size. Using an infrared sensor, the thermometer is capable of scanning surface temperature up to 482 degrees F, whereas the 4.5-inch flip down stainless-steel probe quickly reads internal meat and poultry temperatures up to 626 degrees F.
Convenience is a feature to look for in any gadget, and this versatile thermometer delivers. Featuring point-and-shoot operation for determining surface temperature, the thermometer offers one-handed operation: simply point at the target and hit the “scan” button. It may not be the most glamorous of accessories, but it is shatterproof and water-resistant, two more ways this handy thermometer has got you covered, no matter what you’ve got cooking.
