Extech Instruments makers of the best handheld test and measurement tools, has launched the Extech TM55 Fold-Up Food Thermometer. The new instrument offers chefs high performance and high value.
Optimized for food-safety, the Extech folding thermometer pen with stainless steel probe is certified by the NSF, the most accepted and trusted certification in commercial foodservice equipment, specified by health departments, restaurant buyers and specifiers. The thermometer’s hermetically sealed housing is also protected with an anti-microbial coating. An IP65 waterpoof-rating ensures thorough cleaning in the dishwasher top-rack.
“Chefs have many things to worry about when preparing meals—an abnormal food temperature shouldn’t be one,” said Mike Fox, General Manager at Extech Instruments. “Extech’s new folding thermometer offers some peace of mind with quick, hassle-free temperatures and a durable, sanitary instrument.”
The versatile TM55 from Extech measures up to 482°F (250°C) with high accuracy (±1°F/0.5°C). To minimize temperature-loss impacts from temperature-taking interruptions in the cooking process, the new Extech delivers reliable, easy-to-read temperatures in less than 5 seconds, with rapid updates twice every second. The thermometer operates at any angle suitable for varying culinary needs – opened fully to 180° as a pen-style thermometer or at 90° for right-angle leverage.
Several features add to the ease-of-use of the new folding thermometer. The TM55’s compact design makes it easy for chefs to store in a coat pocket or a drawer, keeping it easy to access when needed. An integrated magnet permits users to affix the instrument to a nearby refrigerator door, metallic shelf or cabinet. Instead of an “ON” button, a chef simply flips the thermometer open to power up.
TM55 NSF Pocket Fold-Up Thermometer offers added peace of mind with a 1 year warranty, and comes with instructions and battery. It is available now through Extech’s global distributor network. To find a distributor near you, please visit: http://www.extech.com/instruments/distributors.asp.
