7 Surprising Uses of Meat Thermometer

Did you know that the cooking thermometer can do so much more than tell you when it is safe to eat meat?

1) Bread making: Use your food thermometer to find precise temperature the water should be for your brand of yeast.

Check bread for ‘doneness’ by inserting food thermometer into the top center of risen loaf, and making sure it registers to 190° to 200° F
Use digital meat thermometer in baking

3) Check the optimal temperature of your fridge: Place food thermometer into any liquids in your fridge, such as milk or juice, and make sure it registers to between 32° to 40° F.

4) Check the temperature for homemade ice cream: Ensure custard registers between 175° to 180° F for one minute, so it’s not too hot when it goes into fridge — this stops eggs from scrambling.

5) Cook perfect poached eggs: Dip your meat thermometer into the water and check that it is at 180° F, for runny but intact yolks

6) Reheating leftovers: Use food thermometer to quickly check the inside temperature of leftover foods after microwaving — no more cold soggy middle.

7) Check your water heater temperature: Get a bowl and place your food thermometer in it.

Turn on hot tap in your kitchen sink and run water over thermometer for a minute. If temperature hotter than 140° F, you have an overactive water heater.
