Simple to use this meat thermometer is to assist with the safe cooking of meat. Clear zones indicate recommended temperature for most meats, including rare, medium and well done beef.
Frozen meats must be fully thawed before inserting the thermometer. Insert as much stem as possible through the fleshiest part of the meat avoiding bones. The spike should be near the centre of the meat.
The roast will be ready when the pointer reaches the temperature indicated by the appropriate zone.
If roasting in foil, the dial should be outside the foil.

Can this meat thermometer be used for water?
This thermometer isn’t designed specifically for water and shouldn’t be submerged in water.

Which is better a digital meat thermometer or a dial meat thermometer?
Meat thermometers that can be placed in the oven during cooking are ideal for monitoring the temperature of your meat whilst it’s roasting.

When to put a meat thermometer in turkey or when roasting meat?
A meat thermometer can be inserted into your roasting joint or turkey whilst cold and for the duration of roasting. The dial on the thermometer has markings for the perfect roasting temperature for different types of meat and for different grades of cooking beef, rare, medium and well done.
Where to put a meat thermometer?
To measure the temperature of your meat joint or poultry accurately, ensure the end of the probe is in a fleshy portion of the meat so it is measuring the temperature of the meat and NOT the air around the meat. This can be most difficult with poultry such as turkey or chicken. Ensure that when the meat thermometer is inserted, it’s in a thick enough portion of the meat to be roasted.
