IR Stove thermometer
Measures the temperature of skillets and food
When "medium heat" isn't precise enough
Cook more consistently
Follow recipes more closely
Prevent pan warping when rinsing
Know when your pan is preheated
Keep oil at a safe temperature
Prevent pans from overheating
- Find the perfect time to add food to your pan
- Cook more consistently
- Know when the pan's preheated
- Know when the pan's getting too hot
- Know when the pan's over the smoke point of oils
- Get the perfect temperature for consistent tortillas, and fried eggs
- Follow recipes more accurately
- Brew (pourover and french press) coffee and tea more consistently
- Shows temperature in °C or °F
- Long sensor battery life
This only measures the surface temperature, but I want to measure internal. What's the point?
Taking the internal temperature of meat etc is important. We've found there are already a number of
great products available that do this, so we've focused on a different use.
(Change to °F)
- Fried eggs: 150 - 180°C
- Corn tortillas: 220°C or hotter
- Omelette : 140 - 160°C
- Know when the burner or skillet is safe to touch
- (Combustion points too.
Smoke point of cooking oils:
- Olive oil: 180°C
- Canola oil: 220°C
- Sunflower oil: 220°C
- Butter: 200°C
Safe temperatures for pan rinsing (to prevent warping)
- Cast iron, hot water: < 110°C
- Cast iron, cold water: < 80°C
- Other, hot water: < 90°C
- Other, cold water: < 50°C
Coffee and tea example brewing temperatures
- Coffee: 94°C
- Sencha green tea: °C
- Gyokuro green tea: °C
- Sencha green tea: °C
Works on non-stick, cast-iron, steel, and aluminum
Accuracy is best on dark surfaces, eg non-stick and cast-iron. Accuracy is reduced
on shiny surfaces, but is good enough for many uses.
Why use this over a handheld IR sensor?
The idea behind the AnyLeaf Stove Thermometer is similar to that of handheld sensors.
We think our thermometer is a better fit for cooking since it's hands-free, and always ready.
The color codes help you check temperature at a glance, and the sensor is a higher-quality one
than that used on common handhelds.
If you already cook with a handheld sensor, this is an upgrade.
