Setting up your meat thermometer is as easy as removing the back battery panel and inserting 2 AAA batteries (included with purchase). Once you have the batteries inserted, you press the left button on the front of the handle that reads MEAT ON/OFF. You will hear a beep. You then press the button again until the desired meat indicator light comes on. The choices listed are Beef, Lamb, Pork, Chicken and Turkey.
The next step after you have selected your meat, is to set the taste level. The taste level will depend on how you want your meat prepared. Such as rare, med rare, med or well done. The taste level is selected by programing the meat thermometer to light up the taste indicator light when your meat reaches the desired level of heat you have selected.
You can choose to have your readings done in Fahrenheit or Celsius by simply choosing the option of choice on the back of the handle. Above the back battery compartment is a button that is labeled C/F. When you press this button it will display on the screen which setting you are using.
Once I had the thermometer set up and ready to use, I couldn't help but notice the length. I am a short lady with short arms. When I am grilling or even baking in the oven, my reach is not as far away from my body as it is for my husband or some others. When I use the shorter meat thermometers it makes it hard sometimes because the heat can become a little much to keep the prongs in long enough. That is the first bonus.
What I realized after actually using the meat thermometer is the instant read. You don't have to hold the thermometer in for 20-30 seconds to get an accurate reading, this smart instant read thermometer is exactly that. From the moment the dual forked prongs entered the interior, the display immediately gave a readout. I kept the thermometer in the meat for an additional 20-30 seconds just to see if it would change. It did not. Once you remove the thermometer it is supposed to return to room temperature within 2 seconds. I can not tell you if this is true or not, as I never even paid attention to that part.
The display is large enough and illuminates nicely for you to read the numbers easily. The back lit display also makes it easy to read when using in a dark oven or later in the evening on the grill. There is no guess work with this thermometer and I am looking forward to using this over and over!
Makes cooking multiple meats at different levels (rare, med, well) for different people much easier. When I am cooking burgers for the family, I like mine well done and don't mind a little burnt to make sure there's no pink, the hubby likes his med rare. So unless we cut everything open and lose all the juices in the process, when I cook, his are always over done and when he cooks, mine are always under done. This will help us a lot and make BBQ's much easier as well!
