This deep fry thermometer is made to monitor the temperature of the cooking oil in your deep fryer. It’s not designed for checking meat temperatures as it’s not accurate enough for that. A meat thermometer is a completely different tool.
It’s vital to closely monitor the cooking oil’s temperature and it’s for two reasons. The first is a safety reason. If temperatures rise too high the cooking oil can catch fire and that’s not adding to the festive spirit.
The second reason is a financial one. If you let oil temperatures come above 350 degrees Fahrenheit it will ruin your cooking oil and make it rancid. You want your cooking to last oil as long as possible and not having to replace it after each deep frying session. The money can be better spent I think. Think turkey, wine, beer!
This deep fry thermometer can measure temperatures from 50 up to 550 degrees Fahrenheit. You simply leave the thermometer in the oil, it has a 12 inch shaft and a convenient adjustable mounting bracket to keep it in place.
The deep fry thermometer has a color coded dial that shows you when the oil is ready and a red zone that warns you when the oil is getting too hot.
