Thermaspike- Ultra Fast Food And Meat Thermometer And Temperature Gauge – Free Battery

Thermaspike- Ultra Fast Food And Meat Thermometer And Temperature Gauge – Free Battery

Review from Jeannie’s Product Reviews

I had a food thermometer for the first time recently and have used it for so many things since. I’ve been cooking since I was a young child, so around 50 years and never used one. It would have saved many underdone or over done cakes and roasts! I’ve used this one for sponges, roast meats and pies( especially when cooking from frozen when they look fine outside but are still low temp in centre),jams, toffee, sweets, and for fun tested freezer and fridge temp. No more convincing everyone my jam is mean to be “soft-set” when it’s not reached right temp for long enough!! Proper setting means it keeps for longer and avoids mould on surface of the jam.  Even used to see our body temperature which kept the grandkids amused at how we all varied very slightly, we’ve a sats/pulse monitor I reviewed and that gives the same variations which fascinates them to see how we all differ a bit.

I tried this against the one I already have, and there was a very marginal difference in reading so I can see that they’re both pretty accurate. Its taken the guesswork out of cooking, I now know the temp we like for roasts such as Beef, and where full cooking is essential, such as poultry and pork for killing bacteria. Its easy to tell if things cooked from frozen are properly heated too.

Its very easy to use, simple switch on, poke in whatever you want to test and the reading is instant. Its been a grim summer so we’ve not had a BBQ but this would be perfect again for avoiding poisoning your guests with underdone food – something very easy to do with BBQ meats. It fits my hand comfortably, having a curved shape, and the spike folds away for safety and avoids getting damaged when stored. I just keep in in drawer near cooker so its to hand soon as I want it. Its ready to use, having a battery included and I think these are essential for all homes.

Stars: Five. A small cost for peace of mind and food safety.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
