Perfect for roasting or grilling. Choose the type of meat or poultry and the doneness desired. CDN’s Programmable Probe Thermometer/Timer (DTP482) has been pre-programmed with 6 meat/poultry choices and various doneness temperatures. The pre-programmed temperatures are based on USDA safe cooking temperatures. The TASTE mode will not allow the user to undercook when it is not safe to do so. Both the taste chosen and the temperature are displayed during cooking. Simply insert the probe into the food. Place the food in the oven or barbecue and close the oven door (or grill cover) directly over the probe cable.
