Undercooked meat not only tastes bad but also poses a great risk to the health. Similiarly, overcooked meat is also unpalatable. This is why meat needs to be cooked at the correct temperature. Whether you are cooking pork, chicken or some other kind of meat, it is essential to monitor the internal temperature of the meat during the cooking process. Meat thermometer enables you to monitor the internal temperature of the meat so that you can cook it perfectly.


Modern digital meat thermometer uses electric current to measure the cooking temperature. Heat increases the resistance to electric current in a metal. Thus, by sending electric current into the metal probe inserted into the meat, the digital thermometer measures the resistance which is converted into temperature reading by a microchip. Digital meat thermometers have a number of benefits which make them highly preferred by people.

Instant read and leave in thermometers

Digital meat thermometers come in instant read and leave in forms. The instant read digital meat thermometer has a metal probe and digital display. As soon as the metal probe inserted into the meat, the temperature is instantly displayed on the digital display. This type of digital meat thermometer can be used after the meat is cooked. You get to know whether the meat has reached the correct temperature or not within seconds of cooking.

Leave in digital meat thermometer needs to be left in the meat while it is cooking. This type of thermometer is either connected by a wire or wirelessly to display screen which continuously displays the internal temperature of the cooking meat. The digital meat thermometer also comes with features such as alarm as soon as the set temperature is reached, remaining cooking time display, etc. Bluetooth meat thermometers which connect with smartphones through Bluetooth to enable monitoring of the cooking temperatures through mobile app are also available in the market. Leave in digital thermometers come in oven and microwave safe varieties which means they can be left inside ovens and microwaves when cooking meat in these appliances.

Accurate temperature reading

Digital meat thermometers display the accurate temperature reading on the display screen. Conventional meat thermometers contain dials which are not very accurate in recording the cooking temperature.

Saves time and efforts

A lot of time and efforts are invested in preparing and cooking meat and all is wasted if the meat is not cooked properly. Digital meat thermometer enables accurate monitoring of the cooking temperature which prevents over and under cooking. Features such as alarm when the correct internal temperature is reached also ensures that you commit no mistake in cooking meat.

Multiple probes

Digital meat thermometers with multiple probes are also available in the market. Multiple probes allow you to monitor the internal temperature of the meat at different spots. This is particularly useful for grilling meats. Digital meat thermometers can have as much as 20 probes even though 4 is enough.
