Cooking meats can be a daunting task for beginners. The fear of food born illness can often lead to overcooked proteins. Starting out I checked proteins with the cut it open and look inside method. This lead to overcooked meat and this tactic is often unreliable! The instant read thermometer will give you an accurate measure of the foods internal temperature and once you know the guidelines, you wont have to worry about dried out chicken or the threat of salmonella! If your cooking an expensive steak and you like it cooked a certain way, this once again gives you an easy way to cook it to perfection.
EDIT: I use the ChuGod bbq probe thermometer and its available on Amazon. Its inexpensive and it all connects via bluetooth to my phone. I use it every time I grill or smoke.

This is about 3 weeks in the making, but I only realized my FU about 30 minutes ago.
About 3 weeks ago, I set up a small 5 gallon tank in my bedroom with a lovely betta fish companion. Because I wanted to be a good betta owner I outfitted his new spacious tank with decorations, a filter, and most importantly, a new heater since bettas are tropical fish and most comfortable around 78 degrees.
Once I got my new friend set up, I made it a habit to get up in the morning, feed him, and check the temperature of his water. The first day I noticed it was a little high, around 82 degrees or so. It’s been really hot out near me, so I figured the room temperature coupled with the heater was heating my water too much, so I unplugged it. I continued to check the temp each day, with no change. My water was keeping steady at 82 degrees.
In order to keep my betta friend happy, I began doing wat... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'd like to be able to tell how low the temp dips overnight. Lots of little zip-o-gage thermometers out there, but I'd like to find something UL that records the lowest temp somehow. Any suggestions?
And wouldn't it be so typical army if they said something like "just wave it in front of their head so it looks like it works" 😅

Just a head's up, if you are living on campus then they expect you to bring a thermometer so that you can take your own temperature.
My housemate broke a mercury thermometer and is kinda freaking out.
She gathered all the broken pieces in a plastic bag, washed all the surfaces (where the mercury touched) a couple of times, and dispossed of everything in a platic bag (including goves, mask, sponges etc).
She opened the window in her room to air it out and plans to sleep for the next 2 day in the livingroom.
We wanted to go dispose of the plastic bag in a special "dangerous garbage" container, but apparently it's only available every three months (and it's not available now)
She asked around, but we got all kinds of advice, including calling the emergency service (basically the cops) to dispose of it, which I think it's too much.
What else can we do? Should she clean her room more? How dangerous is the garbage left?
Due to previous fuckwittery on behalf of Kevina, the library HVAC unit is broken. The high today is 90º. We were told by our assistant director that if the internal temperature of the library reaches 80º, we need to close the library because that is too hot.
I was manning the front door and Kevina came to look at the thermometer. She looked at it for a moment, turned it toward me and asked, "What do you think this says? 78º?"
No, Kevina. I think that says 80º (yes, actual picture of the thermometer in question).
This bad boy! 2 fabric masks and a thermometer in a bubble mailer envelope. I was expecting the masks to come in some kind of sealed bag or ziplock. Every mask I've ordered from Amazon has come sealed.
My husband and I have been together for 10 years. We manage tasks and chores in and around the house in different ways. He does the dishes, I cook. He cleans the bathroom, I take care of trash. He waters the grass, I cut it. Etc....It works for us. Some couples we know argue a lot..we don't. Not usually anyway, but about once every couple of years we get into a GOOD one. The latest fight was actually caught on our ring doorbell cam. The argument stemmed from whether or not the cooking thermometer was considered as part of the dishes. I absolutely believe that it is, and he obviously believes otherwise... for context... he thinks that I should just clean it off with a cleaning wipe and put it away after I use it, rather than put it with the dirties to be washed. Here is the YouTube link to the video.
So.... AITA? Or are we both off our rocker!? Also, the only casualty here was my beloved themometer that met its unfortunate and untimely end, lonely and l... keep reading on reddit ➡
I was feeling under the weather earlier in the week and needed to check my temperature. However, the thermometer was giving inconsistent reads. It was a Vick’s Rapid Read digital thermometer btw. I called their customer service and they walked me through taking my temperature to see if it was user error. They determined that it wasn’t performing well and offered to send me another one in 7-10 business days. I’m thankful they offered a replacement because I wasn’t expecting it. By this point I am feeling much better now, but I was very stressed by this occurrence. I tried looking online for a replacement at one point and it seems that inaccurate thermometers are rampant no matter which one you get. Does anyone have any suggestions if my new replacement is a dud as well? Thanks😊
I did a bunch of research a few months back and ordered a ThermoWorks thermometer which has worked out great.
Link: https://www.thermoworks.com/ChefAlarm - it’s a bit pricy ($64 as of posting) and they don’t sell on Amazon.
The reasons I settled on it are:
This isn’t an ad, just thought it would be helpful since I spent a good few hours researching and couldn’t find much out there on what consumer level products would be good for homebrew. But feel free to remove if this isn’t allowed.
Question in title
I was so focused that I didn’t realize I was in the shower for like 20 minutes.
I’m currently in the process of calibrating my chicken egg incubator and I bought three different thermometers to check the temperature but all three are giving me different results and I don’t know which to follow
One is a aquarium thermometer Another is a thermometer that is plain glass And the other is a hydrometer with a built in thermometer it is marked amazons choice on amazon I have a fourth one built into the incubator but the reviews said not to trust it

I wanted to use an electric thermometer I have, but I dont know if it will work properly. Any help?
Hey so is it safe to assume the thermometers they gave us to take our temps with don't work for crap?
Cheap thermometer UGA sent out last month is already broken after 3 uses. The seam where the metal tip meets the plastic body is obviously not sealed to prevent moisture getting in. After it wouldn't turn on I took off the bottom cover where the battery is. The battery is corroded and full of moisture, obviously saliva that has seeped in.
Who knows if this thing even functioned properly to begin with. It always showed my temperature as being lower than expected.
So we have a temporal touchless thermometer for staff to check themselves when they arrive on shift. Your coworker signs she has witnessed your temprature.
Today it wasn't working when I arrived , I called two seperate supervisors and they both said to go on with morning care. Mmmmkay. So what if I or my coworker had a fever ? Neither of us have any other observable symptoms , but still. What if we were otherwise asymptomatic and a fever was our first/only symptom? we support vulnerable people here.
I kind of want to call in (I've been thinking of it lately to get a break anyway tbh. I'm exhausted) tommorw and say I have a cough just to make them shit their pants a little lol. I won't , because I don't want to get that swab if I don't need to , but I will enjoy fantasizing about it for the rest of my shift.
These things allow air into your cooling system and causes over heating. Been chasing an overheating and poor running problem for months. Took it to the shop and turns out this was the cause of my blown head o-rings.
/u/superherosinemascoop said in an earlier comment that "They wanted to check me on their thermometer they use for employees, one that everyone knows doesn't work very well because it's always reading between the 94 to 96 range." That is so true! It's a running joke at shift change that we all must already be dead since our temps are low and getting lower! How is this helping keep us safe?
Hey, I'm having an issue with my E5 Pro and I was wondering if anyone else had a similar issue and solved it, or can help me figure out what the issue is and what to do.When I turn it on from cold, it immediately reports a nozzle temperature of 236-237. I can touch the block and it's definitely cold.
When I try to change the nozzle temperature, I get:"Heating failedPRINTER HALTEDPlease Reset"
The hot end does get hot before it throws up this error.
Any help would be super appreciated. Just started this hobby ~2 weeks ago and it seems like I'm running directly into every possible issue that can happen with this machine.

Is anyone else having issues with forehead thermometers reading high? I’ve almost been denied from a few stores now because the forehead thermometers sometimes read really high for me. I’m curious if this is caused by the Rosacea? They will show 99+ while the in-ear ones show 97.5 at the same time. My fiancé gets very similar readings using the forehead and in-ear. I’m starting to wonder if I should carry an in-ear thermometer around with me, especially for the times I’m having a flushing/burning outbreak.
Hey, so I've gotten an old frozen 2kg piece of foreshank, and decided to make jerky out of it. I want to make it's safe because it got to me after being thrown out, which means it was thawed at above room temperature (was mostly frozen when it got my hand and only the outer parts got a bit soft).
It smells good, just got some freezer burns.
How do I make sure it gets to a high enough temperature without measuring it's inside? I dry my jerky in an oven on approximately 176 degrees Fahrenheit (80 c) for 4-6 hours - will that kill the bacteria? It was also in a brine for like 10 minutes - just water with some table salt. It was also Marinated for about 12 hours In a soy based Marinade with some salt in it.
What Is your verdict? I like Jerky, but I love living.
Getting a small child (infant to toddler size) to keep a thermometer in their mouth is almost impossible. But if you get the tip wet and dip it in some sugar and they will suck on it long enough to get a reading. If you do it enough they just think it will be sweet and won't need to dip it in sugar anymore.
I have a webber iGrill (2 actually) and it seems off.. it also gets cranky when the probes get wet above the metal part and on the wire and it'll start misreporting numbers. This sucks because when I stir it usually ends up happening.
Anyone have a good recommendation for a thermometer that'll work if the probes get wet.
I see ink-bird has entered the thermometer game.
