How do you know when your food is done cooking?  Did you know that just because your food looks cooked, it doesn’t mean it is? The amount of time that the food is cooked and its appearance are not always accurate indicators.

According to FoodSafety.gov, “the bacteria that cause food poisoning multiply quickest in the “Danger Zone” between 40?? and 140?? Fahrenheit.”  How would one ensure that the minimum internal temperature is reached? No one wants their friends or family to get sick!

The most important device one can have to ensure that one’s food is never undercooked is an accurate food thermometer.  The Kitchen Thermometer and Kitchen Thermometer mini are both great tools for anyone who is making food for others and wants to make sure it is cooked perfectly!

No matter what you want to cook, make sure you know what temperature your food needs to be at before you serve it to your family, guests, or yourself!
