As an experienced chef, you must have a well-rounded set of tools to ensure that your dishes are of the highest quality. Among the most critical kitchen utensils are knives, measuring cups and spoons, and last but not least, thermometers.

When it comes to measuring temperature accurately, Taylor Thermometers are a trusted brand. They offer a variety of thermometers to suit different needs, from cooking to refrigeration.

In this guide, we will explore the different types of thermometers available and how they can help you keep your kitchen’s food safe. By understanding the unique functions of each thermometer, you can ensure that your dishes are cooked to perfection, and your customers are satisfied with the quality and safety of your food. Here are some of the different types of Taylor Thermometers and their uses:
This Taylor thermometer can hang or stand in your oven, leaving valuable oven real estate for your chicken, turkey, casseroles, baked goods, and more. It has an easy-to-read 2-1/4-inch dial that helps distinguish temperature range at-a-glance. For accurate temperature reads, this thermometer uses a red pointer to identify the current temperature while in the oven.

This thermometer reads in 2-5 seconds and gives the fastest reading. It’s good for measuring the temperatures of thick and thin foods. However, it’s not designed to remain in food while it’s cooking, so check the internal temperature of food near the end of cooking time. You can calibrate it, but it’s more costly and may be difficult for consumers to find in stores.
This Taylor thermometer detects temperature through light rather than direct contact with heat. It measures hot temperatures without getting close to hot objects, which makes it a perfect solution for pizza ovens and other high-temperature applications. It’s simple to use: point at the object, pull the trigger, and the exact temperature will be out. It’s ideal for use with pizza stones, barbeque grates, or cast iron skillets.
