It’s barbecue season here in New York and my huge pet peeve is under cooked meat! The next thing that bugs is overcooked meat! What’s a girl to do? Well, I usually keep cutting into my meat until I make sure it’s done to perfection. The only problem with that is it lets the moisture out and can dry up the meat. Also presentation suffers when you have to slice into your cuts of meat and I’m a stickler for a nice presentation. So, when I was asked by EatSmart to review their Precision Elite Food Thermometer I knew exactly how I was going to try it first. ( On my barbecue!)
About the EatSmart Precision Elite Food Thermometer:
This product has been designed by cooking professionals and chef’s for home use. Simply unfold the stainless steel probe, insert into the thickest part of the meat and in 3 seconds or less, the proprietary thermocouple sensor registers an accurate internal food temperature. It comes with a 2 year warranty and weighs 8 ounces. The EatSmart Precision Elite Thermocouple Food Thermometer (Red) can be purchased at Amazon.com.
In two words: LOVED IT! Why? Because I made perfect chicken on the BBQ! The read is fast enough that you won’t feel too much heat from the barbecue. The puncture is small so your juices won’t run out of your meat and dry it. The thermometer also gives you the option to freeze the temperature. Then you can just pull it out and look at it away from the grill/oven. I can’t wait to cook a turkey and use this product. The old thermometer that I have stays in the entire time the food is cooking. I have thrown many away because they get water or moisture in them. Then I can never be sure of the read. This one is sure deal. It also has a blue backlight so it makes reading the temperature easy and eliminates guessing. The EatSmart Precision Elite Food Thermometer also comes with its own case. I plan on taking this item camping with us this year and I know it will be safe. The only fault that I can find with this product has to do with the packaging instructions. I just wish it came with a list of safe temperatures for meat. When I cooked my chicken I needed to look up what a safe temperature was online, I’m not one that cooks meat frequently. A small chart in the box would be helpful for novices like myself. Overall I give this product a 5 out of 5 stars!
