Why Do You Need A Cooking Thermometer

Cooking Thermometers Are A Necessity

Cooking thermometers take the guessing out of food preparation, as they determine the temperature of your prepared food to assure that a safe temperature has actually been reached. If not cooked thoroughly, dangerous bacteria will remain in your food and could potentially harm you. A food thermometer shouldn’t be used sometimes… it must be used every time. Too much food goes to waste because of not using a thermometer, and everyone hates to see an over/undercooked meal.

If you don't use a thermometer on a regular basis you should get in the habit of using one. A thermometer can be used for all meals, not simply hamburgers and hot-dogs. It measures the internal temperature of your casseroles, poultry, homemade breads, and covered dishes to ensure that a secure temperature level has been attained so that dangerous bacteria such as Salmonella and E. Coli have been destroyed. Furthermore, cooking thermometers allow you to cook meats to different levels of “doneness.” Without a cooking thermometer it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a rare and medium burger. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, temperature is the only way to assess whether food is sufficiently prepared. A USDA study uncovered that the "color test" could give consumers deceiving evidence concerning the safety of the foods they are making, considering that food shades differ considerably. Making the decision to use a cooking thermometer is the first step to preparing the perfect foods. The next step is to choose what kind of cooking thermometer is best for you!
