Taylor’s compact digital waterproof food thermometer has an easy-to-read 3/8” LCD display that can toggle between Fahrenheit and Celsius. With a temperature range of -40°F to 450°F, the waterproof meat thermometer is specifically designed for tough kitchen use. The FDA-recommended step-down design of the 1.5 mm diameter probe provides accurate readings no matter what type of food you’re checking, and the 2-3/4” stem slides into the handle when not in use to protect it, and make the thermometer more compact. The professional cooking thermometer is constructed of anti-microbial materials, and, being waterproof, is dishwasher safe. The thermometer operates on an LR44 battery, included.
