You no longer need to be tied to the oven or grill while preparing meat. With this thermometer you also have a timer and alarm. You can set the required internal temperature of the meat and monitor the cooking process from up to 120 feet away. When the preset temperature is reached an alarm will sound on the remote monitor letting you know the meat is cooked as you had directed. Set the thermometer for rare medium rare medium well done or set a custom temperature. Monitor has a belt clip and digital readout of the temperature throughout the cooking process. Never over cook again. Great tool when making sausage.
Probe tip must be inserted into the meat at least 1 inch
