Say you're cooking at someone else's home and they have only a $4 grocery store meat thermometer. Would you worry or will it work fine?
I'm assuming that you've finished cooking by now, but for anyone else who might read this I would suggest testing any style thermometer in boiling water if it's accuracy is questionable.
Beat me to it. Excellent advice for any thermometer to at least get an idea of it's accuracy.
I tested the thermometer's accuracy and it was COMPLETELY inaccurate, so I ended up having to do without. Luckily the bird came out pretty well anyway! Thanks for all your help.
Now you know what to give them for Christmas...
Close enough for government work.What, you can't bring your own?
Too late. Forgot.
Years ago, that grocery store meat thermometer was the kind everyone used before the days of microcircuitry.
OK, so are you saying I'm good to go? It's the kind you stick in and leave while cooking.
That's it....maybe you're not old enough to remember those days. It should be fine.
Or probably I'm so old I've become senile and can't remember... ;)
Anyway, thanks -- guess I'm just being paranoid!
