Should be ok for cannibals

If I stab some of the neighbourhood kids with this do you think the court will by the defence I was checking to see if the little darlings were too warm?

Seems to be a bit of an oxymoron really. Prevent food from being undercooked, yet allows rare to be programmed. I'll pass as food poisoning doesn't seem to be a problem at home (mine anyway). More so at cafes and restaurants.

I think it's more aimed for bbq meats. Last year we got e new bbq and my husband had trouble judging it as it was completely different to the old one, this would of been a great help

One of the biggest waist of money Ive ever purchaced. More gimmick than use!!

I have the same one and it works great.

great for christmas to make sure the birds cooked. Not much good for burgers and small BBQ food but really good for big joints.

Those darlings might prefer if you used the word "shank"

Not really. The contamination, if there is any, would be on the surface of the meat, not the core.

What is the temperature range on this?

Can it be used for Cooking oil and sugar?

What type of batteries does this take?

I think this would cause more food poisoning than anything, with people not washing it properly

I bought a meat thermometer today in Dunelm, is the traditional round one aimed at meats. £3.49, which I thought was a decent price as I'm pants at guaging internal meat temps on the likes of chicken.
Just thought I'd add to thread to give peeps an alternative:

I will have to disabuse you of that notion.
A larger percentage of food poisoning occurs at home than restaurants/takeaways.
Most people don't realise they have poisoned themselves and blame it on that "dodgy takeaway" they had instead.

Yes mate, I actually first saw it in a store and purchased it there, I used the on line item as a reference.

Having poisoned myself pretty badly once I'm paranoid when cooking chicken so I'll get myself one of these, voted hot
