EatSmart Precision Elite Thermocouple Food Thermometer Review and #Giveaway

logo
        Coming from working in restaurants for half my life I have become used to using certain tools when cooking regardless of my experience or knowledge.  I was recently asked by Eat Smart  to review their newest product -  EatSmart Precision Elite Thermocouple Food Thermometer w/ Backlit Display & InstaRead Technology.  I was more than glad to add to my list of kitchen gadgets.


        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.

Available to purchase/Cost:  $39.95 EatSmart Precision Elite Thermocouple Food Thermometer w/ Backlit Display and InstaRead Technology
Recommendation: This is a great purchase at this price for something so nice and definitely a company worth checking out other products from as they are high quality (compared to what I've seen elsewhere).  This would make a great gift for the kitchen chef or even someone with less experience to have around the home.

  1. I check things like chicken often to make sure it is cooked thoroughly and the one I do own does have the temps on it for poultry. etc. It is not as nice or definitely not as quick as this

  2. It depends upon the item and if I temp them.
    I do currently temp them when called for.

  3. I only use a thermometer for thicker meats like roasts and whole chickens, then go by the temp ranges on the thermometer.

  4. No, I do not currently check my temp of foods at home. I'm not sure of the exact temps of the meats either. I just do my best at guessing it is done.

  5. I love reading your blogs and entering your giveaways. The only thing that I would change would be the way you subscribe to your blog posts. I lost out on many postings as feedburner does not deliver to yahoo addresses anymore. I switched my address to gmail and i'm hoping this works so that i can start getting feedburner emails again. Now i am always going back and fourth between yahoo mail and gmail.

  6. I like the variety of topics o read about. I liked reading the "Growing into Green" topic since I wasn't a tree-hugger type person either, but have realized many of the things you mentioned and we are now quite a green family. Yes, I have to nudge others in the home sometime but for the most part we are all on board.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm aware of the appropriate temps for different types of meat but don't currently have a thermometer. We used to have a cheap one that finally got thrown out. Now I have to cut into my meat to see if it is done because I haven't mastered the feel test yet

    ReplyDelete

  32. My Honey/Hubby has been in the restaurant business (unofficially) since he was like 8 years old and he knows everything there is to know about food safety and temperatures (almost to a fault!) He's also been cooking long enough to have a very good sense of touch and FEEL when meats and poultry are done ~ but I don't and we'd both appreciate a great thermometer like this one! (I did buy an inexpensive one a few years ago but it broke and never worked well anyway ~ and the old fashion one is slow,hard to read and has to be recalibrated all the time! Thanks.

  34. I've worked in the food industry, so I know the safe temps for different meats. I have a cheap dial thermometer that I use at home. A nice digital one like this would be great and much easier to use!

    Only check a chicken and turkey for temp. Not really sure other than juices run clear in chicken to be done.

    ReplyDelete
  36. No, I have never owned a food thermometer before. I am not sure of the safe temperature ranges.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I really just guess. I'm assuming I've been doing ok because no one has ever gotten sick from my cooking but I really wish I had a thermometer!

  38. I never even heard about any of the until now.. No I don't temp but I think I would like to start.

  39. We use a meat thermometer, it is not digital though. It has little notches for different types of meat so you know when each type gets to the correct temp. I think a digital one would be much more accurate though
