Timers and Thermometers

While some people are gifted in the kitchen and have a keen eye and nose for the right quantities, times, and temperatures, the rest of us usually need a little help. This is where timers and thermometers can come in. Many recipes call for foods to cook for certain times and to remain at a certain temperature, so using a kitchen timer and food thermometer to help you is the only way regular cooks can get accurate results.

While you may want the old, rustic look of a sand timer in your kitchen, it’s luckily not the only way to monitor food cooking times. Digital timers can be set to any time and will count down and alarm you when time is up; easy to set, lightweight and often magnetic, these digital timers can sit on your fridge or oven when not in use, or could be easily stored away in drawer. Mechanical, winding egg timers are also available in egg shapes or other novelty designs which you could choose to display on your kitchen counter or a shelf. However, they may not let you time as long as a digital timer can.

Digital thermometers are also really helpful in the kitchen, especially for cooking meat or when practising precise baking. Meat thermometers will have probes that stick into the meat to test if it’s cooked all the way through - some recipe books and guidelines give ideal temperatures for various meat dishes so you can cook that rump or joint perfectly. If you’re heating a sauce or mixture such as caramel or chocolate for baking, you often need to wait until the liquid reaches a certain temperature, which is where food thermometers that are specially designed for the job, come in.

Take a look at the cooking thermometers and kitchen timers available online to pick out some that will help improve the accuracy of your cooking and will also look right at home on your kitchen shelves.
