Electronic Temperature Instruments (ETI) has introduced the ChefAlarm professional cooking thermometer and timer, in five food safe colours – blue, green, red, white and yellow.
The unit incorporates a fully programmable count up/down timer and includes a multi-functional LCD display which simultaneously indicates the elapsed time, the current and the min/max temperatures during a cooking cycle. Its audible alarm sounds when the food reaches the pre-determined temperature or programmed time.
The ChefAlarm measures temperature over the range -50 to 300°C, designed with an accuracy of ±1 °C. Utilising the unit’s ‘CAL’ feature the user can fine-tune the thermometer’s accuracy to better than ±0.5°C.
The audible alarm has adjustable volume (92dB), while the main temperature digits are designed to be easy-to-see from a distance. The one-touch backlight button allows the user to read the display in poor light conditions.
Each ChefAlarm is supplied with a stainless steel food penetration probe, designed for commercial use. The probe can be used for spot checking the temperature of food during storage or it can be used inside an oven to monitor the whole cooking cycle.
An optional miniature needle probe is also available for thin or tiny food portions, as well as sous vide cooking, where the probe and its cable can be immersed in the water bath. The probe can measure temperatures up to 300°C, albeit the stainless steel braided lead can only withstand short-term exposure to 250°C.
The ChefAlarm is priced at £35.00 exclusive of VAT and is available direct from ETI.
