Product Details: Designed by chef’s and cooking professionals for home use, the Precision Elite Thermocouple is the perfect tool for the serious home cook or baker. Indoors or outdoors this thermometer will impress friends and give years of reliable service performing a wide variety of everyday tasks. Unlike most “instant-read” thermometers on the market using thermistor sensors, the Precision Elite utilizes an proprietary thermocouple sensor. With a temperature range from -40F to 572F there isn’t a task this unit can’t handle in your home!
Personal Experience: I have worked with EatSmart in the past on travel gear and I looked forward to the opportunity to work with them again. They had wonderful timing when they asked me to review their latest product offering. My food thermometer had very recently “bit the dust” and I was on the lookout for a quality replacement.
The EatSmart Precision Elite Thermocouple Food Thermometer was love at first sight. The sleek design and vibrant red case would look great among any kitchen’s gadgets. The probe folds down against the main part of the device, which saves space and protects the probe from damage. It also comes with a custom case for storage. A large back-lit display also makes this easy to read in almost any temperature-gathering situation.
You simply unfold the probe to turn on the device and close it to turn it off. The EatSmart Precision Elite Thermocouple Food Thermometer has helped us to accurately determine when foods are properly and completely cooked or at the desired temperature. It also comes in handy for checking the temperature of my son’s food. We no longer need to rely on touch to make sure his food is at a safe coolness to eat.
The thermometer uses InstaRead technology to get you your readings very quickly… in 3 seconds or less. It can go from boiling liquid to an icy mixture and back again and still give you accurate readings in a snap.
Overall, I have been very happy with this thermometer. It has been more than I could have ever expected as a replacement for my old thermometer. I feel like I upgraded from a lemon to a Lamborghini!
Pros: Fast and accurate readings in just seconds. Sleek design with a convenient back-lit display. Two year warranty. Anti-microbial carrying case. Folding design saves space.
Cons: It’s definitely higher than many people may be willing to pay for a kitchen thermometer, but you do get what you pay for here… it’s worth the investment.
