One of those tools I previously mentioned not being able to live without has always, always been a thermometer. I can honestly say by just touching and looking at a steak, how it is cooked and even what temperature it is at (or any other meat for that matter). It is just something you learn after spending so much time in a kitchen and at a grill.
However, that doesn't mean I prefer to make my educated guess and especially when my cooking reputation is on the line. With how frequently I cook for family and friends, I don't want to take chances on anyone's health. The Precision Elite Thermocouple Food Thermometer has a 1.5mm folding step down probe which instantly reads the temperature (ranging from -40 to 572 degrees Fahrenheit).
Not only does it measure the temperature in 3 seconds or less but the step down probe helps reduce the puncture mark size in the food. This one is so much easier to use than the two I previously had. I always had trouble temping on the grill because of how short they were or how long it would take to read properly. This even comes with a anti-microbial nylon case so I can carry it wherever I want easily. Regardless of where I am, you will find me using my new thermometer to be sure my meat has been cooked to temperature.
