We often look for tools with the best overall value – high-quality tools with the most affordable prices. Let us know if you have any questions! 🙂
- Quickly separates unwanted fat from flavorful juices

This is such a great gadget to have. It helps us separate the fat/oil from sauces and gravy quickly.
- 3-4 second ultra-fast response time with an accuracy better than 0.9°F.
- Large 1.4" easy-to-read display and splash-proof construction.
We have recently switched to this food thermometer as it is fast and accurate (±0.9°F). We use this to make sure our meat are cooked properly such as this pressure cooker pork chop recipe. We also use it to monitor the temperature for poor-man sous vide, as we find the measurement to be quite accurate.
