A helpful tool for the kitchen is the thermometer. A thermometer is needed for perfectly cooked meat, which is a necessity for summer barbeques. For the safety of your guests, checking the temperature will ensure that meat has reached the proper temperature. For bakers, a thermometer can also be used to check the internal temperature of breads. Most breads are done with the middle is 185-190°. Breads with harder crusts may go up to 205-215°. Not pictured is another good thermometer to have: the candy thermometer. With a clip that attaches to the pan, candy thermometers are perfect for measuring the temperature of liquids.
Purchase a thermometer at any kitchen retail store.
