These two types of thermometers check temperatures through a metal probe and the temperatures are displayed digitally. These are good for checking the temperature of both thick and thin food.
Thermocouples and thermistors
Use these to check the temperature of liquids. This could include soups, sauces, and frying oil.
Use these to measure the temperature of flat cooking equipment, such as griddles.
Use these to check the internal temperature of food. They are especially useful for checking the temperatures of thin food, such as fish fillets or hamburger patties.
Use these to check the temperature inside coolers and ovens.
These are able to measure the temperature of food and equipment surfaces without touching them.
Infrared (laser) thermometers
These tags are attached to packaging by the supplier and shows a color change in a window if the food has been time-temperature abused during shipment or storage.
