This is the second-to-last week of the Foodbuzz specials. Today’s item is the Taylor Instant-Read Digital Thermometer. I don’t know about this particular thermometer, but I do know that thermometers are important to have in a kitchen. I use candy thermometers when I am cooking sugar so that I know when it is at the right consistency. Others might use thermometers to test the internal temperatures of meat to be sure they are cooked to a safe temperature. There are many other (perhaps more professional) uses, too, such as for tempering chocolate, or baking bread. I am happy to say that most of the items on this week’s list are a lot more useful than say, last week’s salt and pepper shakers.
