This pen-shaped thermometer is free of mercury and is especially useful in food preparation - in particular for cheese and yogurt production. It is an economical yet robust thermometer, ideal for the kitchen and has measurements in both ºC (Celsius) and ºF (Fahrenheit). The thermometer features a stainless steel penetration probe (120mm) and is surrounded by a heavy-duty plastic case. The case is also fitted with a click-top that has a moulded clip on the side. This means the thermometer can be safely carried by being simply clipped to a breast pocket. The thermometer is accurate to within 1ºC and should form a vital part of the equipment of any kitchen where cheese, yogurt or other dairy products are made. It has a range of -49.9ºC to 149.9ºC, so should cover nearly all dairy applications.
