My first test review on this was with link sausage. It is my husband's favorite breakfast meat, and I always over cook them. So, I figured this would be a good test. Now many of you probably think how can you over cook sausage. Well, my philosophy is better cooked too long than not long enough especially with pork. My husband is so tired of crispy black link sausages.
As the links were first starting to cook, I selected all of the measures I wanted for this. It didn't take long. Then I stuck the probe into several of the link sausages. Before long, and a lot sooner than I ever expected the beeper was going off on the Measupro Thermometer alerting me that my sausages were cooked to the settings I selected. Wow! No wonder my husband commented that I cooked them to death, I really did. I would have cooked those links many more minutes otherwise. Needless to say, it was the first time ever my husband felt like the sausages were cooked "Just Right." Yeah!
With each item I tested this thermometer with I have had such great results that I will definitely put my old school thermometer to rest. This is by far the best meat thermometer I have ever tried. (I have tried others over the years just so you know.)
This has a large LCD display making it real easy to ready the temperatures. It lets you select from a variety of meats, wellness/doneness, it has a pre alert-alert-and overcook alarms, it has a way to store your settings, it also offers an alarm. It can be stored on metal surfaces such as a fridge with the magnet on back. The stainless steel probe comes with a 36" braided cord. This allows you to stick the stainless steel probe into the meat, and the cord can have the oven door shut tight with the rest of the thermometer left on the counter for easy reading. No longer do you need to open the the oven door and stick in that old school thermometer.
This is the perfect gift idea for anyone who wants to rest assured that their meat has cooked long enough without over cooking. Be sure to buy yours today.
Pros: Really like the 4 doneness settings and the preprogrammed settings. The long cord is great too so I don't have to keep opening the oven door to check the meat. Has large LCD display. Like the alarm that goes off alerting to the pre alert-alert-and overcook alarms.
My Rating: A Big Thumbs UP!!!
