Thermocouples Thermometers

Thermocouples Thermometers

Of all the food thermometers available, thermocouples are able to read and display the final temperature the quickest between 2 to 5 seconds. The temperature results will be displayed on a digital panel. A thermocouple thermometers measures temperature at the junction of two fine wires found at the tip of the probe. Thermocouples used in scientific laboratories have very thin probes, similar to hypodermic needles, while others may have a thickness of 1/16 inch.

Since thermocouple thermometers are able to respond so quickly, the temperature can be check faster in  different locations to ensure that the food is thoroughly cooked. This is very useful for cooking large foods, such as turkeys or roasts, which required temperatures to be read in more than one places. The thin probe of the thermocouple also enables it to accurately read the temperature of thinner foods like hamburger patties, pork chops and chicken breasts.

Thermocouples thermometers are not designed to be remained in the food during cooking. They should be used during the end of the cooking time to get the final temperatures. Always check the temperature before the food is expected to finish cooking to prevent any overcooking.
