The probe goes inside the thickest part of meat or the dish you are preparing. If using the oven, the cord can be close in the oven door without any issues. The plastic thermometer body goes on the counter or on top of the oven away from heat.
One of the main features that I love about Frazoni Digital Thermometer is that you can set the temperature that you wanted to be alerted at. When I oven bake chicken breasts, I set the thermometer to alert me at 160 degrees F. Then, I remove the chicken from the oven and let it come to 165 F (the chicken continues to cook for a little bit longer even though it is not int he oven). I like that the probe allows me to check to the temperature during the cooking process.
I have used Frazoni Digital Thermometer to cook chicken, beef and pork. The instructions come with food preparation guidelines. The recommended temperatures are standard USDA recommendations. I usually follow these and hardly ever get under cooked or over cooked meat.
One opportunity for improvement is to have an on/off button or switch. Otherwise, you have to remove the battery each time and then you lose the current time setting. Even if you use the thermometer on a daily basis, having an on/off button or switch will extend battery life.
The thermometer can also be used with a grill. Just remember to keep the plastic body away from the grill since the grill and the outside of the grill can get extremely hot.
The useful functionality and affordable price of the Frazoni Digital Cooking Thermometer makes this product a necessity in any kitchen. Stop second guessing if your food is cooked through. Use a digital thermometer!
