Thermometer Usage. How Should I use it to measure properly?
Posted 02 September 2012 - 06:42 AM
Firstly, I am thinking to buy a good thermometre, this one seems quite handy and quite good. Recommened by Modernist Cuisine Site
Any people here have used it and has any feedback to give? good or bad or some tips...
Secondly, the other things I would like to ask is about how to use thermometre in general.
There are some situations I can think of that I wanted to test out, e.g. how hot is the oven I am cooking my food in, how hot is the steamer cooking the food...
The problems I am concerned is, is it suitable to place the whole thermometre inside the oven, close the lid, after a while, open it and check the oven temperature? Same goes with steamer, is it suitable to throw in the whole thermometre in, steam it, and check temperature later?
Will the plastic or whatever material the thermometre is made of melt? Will it break the thermometre?
Thirdly, if it is not suitable to throw in the thermometre, then what steps I can go about in order to measure accurately about those temperatures?
Thanks in advance

I wonder if i throw inside hot deep frying oil, would it be ok too since the temperature range should be high for oven thermometer?
