if you already have an instant read thermometer probe,
is there any situation where an Infrared temperature gun would be handy?
Note that if you decide to get one, they're much cheaper in industrial, auto-supply and scientific supply places than culinary vendors.
well, I've got a oven thermometer that does double duty in the bbq and a thermopen.
I guess an IR gun would be good for the skillet, as my ceramic glass cooktop is unbelievably slow.
Check oven temperature to verify accuracy of oven.
I use my Thermopen IR gun to check temps on my deep fryer
I use my IR gun to measure the temperature of my griddle/skillet/pizza steel before adding oil and food to it. I use my temperature probe for sticking into food.
As you should have gleaned from the other thread, they serve different purposes. The probe checks the food being cooked to determine readiness. The IR gun is for a surface temp on a cooking vessel or a grill.
