Extech TM55 Pocket Fold-Up Food Thermometer is dishwasher safe and is designed for demanding Chefs. From professional chefs in the finest restaurants, to experienced butchers, to the novice cook. Extech’s TM55 Fold Up Food Thermometer offers an excellent combination of safety and convenience not found in cooking thermometers costing more than twice as much.
Instant-On, Instant Temperatures:
The small size is easy to store in a pocket or a drawer, making it readily accessible when you need it. A built-in magnet keeps it handy on a refrigerator door or metallic shelf or cabinet. Flip it open and it automatically turns on — no “ON” button to press.
Unlike dial thermometers or slow digital thermometers, the Extech fast responding design delivers a reliable, easy-to-read temperature in less than 5 seconds, rapidly updating you twice a second . Spend less time with an open losing precious heat with a lid removed from a pot; or with foil removed from your food.
When opened, the thermometer works at any angle. For example, the probe can fold out fully to 180° for use as a pen-style thermometer or at 90° for right-angle leverage. The 250°C temperature range and high accuracy (±0.5°C) makes it suitable for nearly any gourmet adventure.
Waterproof vs Splash-proof: Is it Really Dishwasher Safe?
Designed with food safety in mind, the durable Extech folding thermometer pen with stainless steel probe is certified by the NSF for food use.
The ultrasonically welded housing is protected with an anti-microbial coating and its IP65 waterpoof rating means that, at the end of a fabulous meal, it can go in the dishwasher along with your dishes and pots (top-rack only).
The Extech TM55 is not just splash-proof like many popular thermometers, it’s rated for the water jets of a dishwasher. That’s one fewer item to hand wash.
