Calibrating your Thermometer

It's Tip-Thursday!! Well, that's not really a thing, but it's Thursday and I have a great tip for you! In culinary school I learned the importance of calibration. I would always keep my thermometer on my chef coat pocket and between the varying temperatures of the kitchen, dropping the darn thing, and overall use of it, I couldn't always trust the accuracy. With the holidays coming up it's so important to have a trustworthy thermometer to ensure your turkey or roast is cooked to perfection!

In a short glass or bowl fill it to the brim with ice and then water. Stir this together for a second or two. Put your thermometer in the glass, being sure that the "sensor" is submerged. Keep the thermometer in the glass for about a minute and then check the temperature. The water should be about 32-34 degrees. Some brands have the ability to manually change the temperature so you know it's 32 degrees to start. Mine doesn't have that so in the event that it's "off" more than a few degrees I would put a new one on my Christmas list :)

Happy calibrating!

  2. Autoclaves are designed to sterilize medical equipment by exposing it to highly pressurized steam for a prescribed period of time. Most are automated and you simply load your instruments into the chamber, push the start button and let the machine take over. However, because they perform such a necessary function, it's important to calibrate your autoclave periodically to make sure it's operating at peak performance levels at all times.

  5. Cooking thermometer is a truly little yet awesome cooking instrument and it is surely exceptionally supportive. It gauges interior warmth of the cooked sustenances precisely and in a flash. That implies no all the more speculating and no more overcooked or uncooked nourishments ever. http://donfreed.com/

  10. However, while it's true that there are some poor quality restaurants, despite this reputation, there are in fact many excellent British restaurants too (in 2005, Restaurant Magazine said 14 of the 50 best restaurants in the world were in the United Kingdom), and a willingness among the British population to experiment with new styles and dishes, both at home and when eating out.crockpot cooking
