Choose the Andrew James Meat Thermometer for seamless cooking, baking, and barbecuing. This handy digital fork thermometer is an essential piece of kitchen equipment for both health and safety and also achieving culinary perfection. Easy to use and versatile, this device is completely wireless so you can comfortably stick the 2 ends into the meat like a probe and read the temperature from the handle.
This thermometer has been pre-programmed for beef, lamb, pork, and poultry to ensure your meat has reached the correct temperature and cooked through enough to destroy potentially harmful bacteria.
It can also be used to check buffet and BBQ food is cooked at a safe temperature. The clear LCD display shows the temperature from zero to 180 degrees fahrenheit in an easy-to-read format.
How Do I Use My Fork Thermometer?
Select the meat type by pressing the ‘meat’ button. Each press will display in the following sequence:
Beef -- Veal -- Lamb -- Pork -- Chicken/Turkey -- (no selection)
Select the taste level of the meat by pressing the ‘taste’ button indicated by the triangular pointer in the LCD display. Each press will change the taste in the following sequence:
Well Done -- Medium -- Medium Rare -- Rare
Insert the tines halfway into the thickest part of the meat (at least ½” deep). Allow approximately 15-20 seconds for the probe to obtain an accurate temperature reading. The correct pointer of the taste level will turn on and flash to indicate the taste level of the meat. As the meat temperature increases to the next level, the pointer of that level will also turn on and continue flashing.
Once the predetermined taste level is reached, the temperature reading will flash and the fork will beep to indicate the taste level of the meat. Press ‘meat’ or ‘taste’ button to clear the flashing LCD and to stop it beeping. Remove the tines once the temperature is determined.
To turn off the device, hold down the ‘meat’ button for 2 seconds.
The fork will turn off automatically after 10 minutes to save power (previous settings will be stored).
How Do I Know When My Meat is Fully Cooked?
When you select one of the programmes, an alarm within the thermometer will sound when your food has reached the correct temperature.

Ensure the thermometer has be thoroughly cleaned in hot soapy water after every use and is allowed to dry completely. You can also pop your fork thermometer in the dishwasher - just make sure to remove the batteries out beforehand.
To ensure you get an accurate reading each time, always put the thermometer probe into the thickest part of the meat and take care not to touch the bone. If cooking a whole poultry, insert the probe into the inner thigh.

Always insert the tines into the thickest part of the meat as the thinner portions will cook through faster and are difficult to accurately measure the taste level.
When inserting the tines into meat, avoid fatty parts and bones.
Wash the tines with hot soapy water after each use to prevent cross contamination. The fork thermometer is dishwasher safe.
