The OXO Good Grips Digital Leave-In Meat Thermometer is the ideal tool for cooking roasts and poultry to perfection. The digital display dually functions as a thermometer and 24-hour timer, and it is angled for optimal viewing on the counter. Simply insert the probe into the meat and run the cable outside the oven door to easily monitor what’s cooking. The Thermometer provides the option of selecting USDA or chef recommended temperatures for all types of meat, poultry and fish, and will signal when the preferred temperature is reached. In addition, a 10-degree warning alert helps prevent overcooking. When not in use, the Thermometer probe fits easily into the display and the cord wraps around the base for compact storage.
