Tips for using kitchen thermometers

Tips for using kitchen thermometers

If you want to cook like a pro and prepare memorable dishes, it won't be enough to just use the best ingredients and follow the advice of top chefs. Indeed, proper cooking is an essential step for the success of your dishes. You must therefore learn to control the temperature of your preparations. This is because the difference between a juicy turkey and a dry turkey, for example, lies not only in the time spent in the oven, but also in the cooking temperature. Fortunately, this aspect of the technique can be mastered by using different specific kitchen thermometers.

Why an oven thermometer

All recipes indicate a temperature to which the oven should be heated before and during the cooking time. Even though the vast majority of ovens have a temperature adjustment mechanism, it often happens (more than you might think) to lose calibration. It is therefore essential to obtain a device that allows you to know with certainty the degree of heat.

Oven thermometers are not expensive. They come in different shapes, but it's best to choose one that doesn't make it difficult to handle the dish. Stem thermometers are well suited for this operation, and particularly for checking meat and fish, and thus prevent them from drying out during cooking.

Other situations also require the use of a thermometer. For frying food, for example, it is necessary to know the temperature of the oil to prevent the food from burning on the outside and remaining raw on the inside. Likewise, when preparing caramel, it is essential to control that the sugar passes through the different levels of heat; otherwise, it could solidify too quickly or burn.
