Are you a truthful cook?Avoids overcooking, keeping the product juicy and flavorful! Food thermometers reduce the risk of foodborne illness. Just like washing your hands before you prepare a meal, getting into the habit of checking the internal temperature of food, especially meat, poultry and egg dishes, reduces the chance of foodborne illness. The use of a food thermometer is the only definite way of knowing if your food has reached a high enough temperature to destroy harmful bacteria.
Tips for using a food thermometer:Use an instant-read thermometer to check the internal temperature toward the end of the cooking time, but before the food is expected to be done. Insert the food thermometer into the thickest part of the food, making sure it doesn’t touch bone, fat or gristle. Compare your thermometer reading to the Recommended Safe Minimum Internal Temperatures chart to determine if your food has reached a safe temperature. Make sure to clean your food thermometer with hot, soapy water
