    This analogue meat thermometer is easy to use and it’s oven safe. But it’s not as accurate as other meat thermometers we’ve tested.

    How we test

    Overall score is based on:

    Accuracy (60%) We assess accuracy using a calibrated thermal bath. When the thermal bath reaches 70℃ a reading on each thermometer is taken. A reading of -/+ 1℃ gets an accuracy score of 8.0, a reading of -/+ 2℃ scores 5.0.

    For thermometers that claim to be oven-proof, we check how accurate the reading is at 70℃ while cooking scotch fillet. All were within 2℃ of the calibrated reading. This didn’t contribute to the overall score.

    Ease of use (40%) We check how easy it is to use and read the thermometer, insert the probe, and clean the thermometer.

    Price is from an October 2018 survey.
