The Taylor Folding Programmable Digital Thermometer gathers expert cooking results for beef, pork, poultry and lamb and makes your food safe to eat. Simply preheat the oven to desired cooking temperature and place the food in the preheated oven. Sterilize the metal probe by inserting it into an appropriate solution such as boiling water for several minutes. Press the "Enter" button to turn the unit on. The LCD screen will turn on and display the current probe temperature. Your thermometer is preset to read temperatures in Fahrenheit. To switch to Celsius, press and hold the "°F/°C" button for 3 seconds. Press the "Enter" button to access the Meat Selection screen. The default setting "Beef Rare 140.0°F" appears. The temperature digits flash. 6. Press the S or T button to scroll though the 16 meat types and their preprogrammed target temperatures. Press "Enter" to select the displayed meat type. The LCD screen returns to the current temperature display. The name of the selected meat appears above the temperature reading. To test the internal temperature of the food, unfold the metal probe and insert it into the thickest part of the food. Do not come in contact with bone, fat or gristle, as these areas will not provide accurate temperature readings. Take care when moving the probe into position to avoid injury or damage. The color coded lights behind the Taylor logo indicate if the current temperature is lower, higher, or within 5 degrees of the target temperature. If the temperature is lower than the target temperature, a blue LED light flashes. When the temperature reaches the target temperature, a green LED light flashes. If the temperature is higher than the target temperature, a red LED light flashes.
