Common Questions about the Yummly Thermometer

Common Questions about the Yummly Smart Thermometer

Can I Air Fry with the Smart Thermometer?

Yes! Yummly Smart Thermometer is great for air frying, handling temperatures of up to 570F, and internal meat temperatures up to 200f. Keep the dock next to your air fryer for continuous temperature monitoring while you cook.

Can I deep fry?

No. Never submerge or expose the thermometer to excessive liquid, humidity, pressure, or use in the microwave.

Can I sous vide?

No. Never submerge or expose the thermometer to excessive liquid, humidity, pressure, or use in the microwave.

Can I use the Smart Thermometer on my BBQ grill?

Yes! Yummly Smart Thermometer is great for grilling, handling grill temperatures of up to 572f and internal meat temperatures up to 200f. Keep the dock next to your grill for continuous temperature monitoring while you cook.

Is the Smart Thermometer microwave, steam oven, slow cooker, or Instant Pot safe?

No. Never submerge or expose the thermometer to excessive liquid, humidity, pressure, or use in the microwave.

Cooking with metallic foil

If your recipe calls for wrapping or covering the meat in tinfoil, Smart Thermometer must be pierced through the foil itself and into the meat. To maintain a connection, the black tip of the thermometer must be clear of any metallic foil obstruction.

What are the temperature limits?

Smart Thermometer, when correctly used, can withstand up to 210° Fahrenheit (99° Celsius) of internal meat temperature and 572° Fahrenheit (300° Celsius) of ambient cooking temperature for any duration of time. It can also withstand flare-ups of 1100° Fahrenheit (593° Celsius) for up to 3 minutes. The dock should never be placed on a hot surface.

My turkey has pink juices. Is it safe to eat?

A turkey with pink juices is perfectly safe to eat if the meat has reached 165°F in both the breast and thigh. Check the temperature in both areas, as they can cook at different rates. The pink juices are caused by a protein called myoglobin that’s stored within the muscles and is found mixed with water as the pink fluid. Depending on the acidity (pH) of the meat, which can vary from one turkey to the next, the myoglobin may not change color until the meat reaches as high as 180°F — and that would result in an overcooked turkey.
