Description

Does your food take longer to cook because you have to keep opening the oven door to check if the food is done or not? No need to constantly open the oven door anymore! The thermometer sits on the counter while the cord winds through the oven door and the temperature can be read without opening the oven door, very convenient. The Taylor 1478-21 digital cooking thermometer with timer and probe is a great tool for your kitchen. The Taylor 1478-21 displays temperature in Fahrenheit (32 degrees F to 392 degrees F) and Celsius (0 degrees C to 200 degrees C). This thermometer conveniently monitors exact temperature of meat, poultry, or any food without opening the oven door. The thermometer comes with a durable 6 inch, stainless steel probe and a 4-foot silicone cord. The cord is safe up to 485 degrees F/250 degrees C. When your food hits your preset time or desired internal temperature, an alarm signal occurs to ensure perfect results. You can display the thermometer 2 ways: stand up display for counter top use or there is a magnet on the back to hold on to an oven door. This thermometer can be used for grilling, as long as the cord does not get exposed to a direct flame. To save battery life, the thermometer comes with an on/off switch, is backed by a 1 year warranty and runs on 2 AAA batteries (included).


Helpful hints-The meat probe is a thin wire coated in Silicone. Be very careful not to crimp this wire in the oven- door , BBQ top ,or Smoker door. The probe , like all in the industry , should be kept away from flame flare-ups and contact with cooking surfaces. Another tip- be sure to insert the probe into the meat at least 1.5 inches. This insures that you will get the correct readings at all times.

Q: I'd like to use this in my turkey fryer, which means some of the silicone cord would be submerged in oil while cooking. Will this thermometer work for this application? Thanks

Q: Can the probe remain in the meat for the entire cooking time? And if so, can the wire withstand the heat of the oven for that duration?

submitted by Mayas Mom - 8 months ago
  • A: The probe can remain in the meat for the entire cooking time. The thermometer sits on the counter while the cord winds through the oven door and the temperature can be read without opening the oven door. The thermometer displays temperature in Fahrenheit (32 degrees F to 392 degrees F) and Celsius (0 degrees C to 200 degrees C). Please make sure you do not use the cord and probe for oven temperatures higher than 392F & be sure the probe and cable does not get crimped. Please reach out if you have additional questions.

Q: Can you use the thermometer to monitor internal temp as it is being prepared on the stove or does it only work in the oven?

submitted by Jason Cross - 11 months ago
  • A: The probe will monitor any temperature when inserted properly into the food whether it is in the oven or not. If you have any additional questions, please reach back out. Thanks!

Q: will this work with an induction cooktop

submitted by HKScribner - 1 year ago
  • A: The thermometer probe touches the food, not the cooking surface so the type of heat does not affect the performance. Please note that this thermometer is meant for in oven cooking with the wire through the door and the base station on the outside. If you have additional questions, please reach back out. Thanks!

Q: how long is this supposed to last? After a year mine stopped working despite new batteries (the dial just said "Lo"). I've Prior had to slap the thermometer a bit after i turned it on to get the dial to light up. The battery terminals are pristine.

Q: can you just hang the probe over the oven grill without inserting in meat to monitor oven temperature?

submitted by Flamingo - 2 years ago
  • A: The thermometer probe is made to be used to measure the internal temperature of the meat. Taylor recommends using an oven thermometer to determine the ambient temperature of an oven. If you have additional questions, please reach back out. Thanks!

Q: Do you need to calibrate the thermometer? I was making a brisket last week and the temperature stopped at 154. I then took the thermometer out and repoked the meat outside of the smoker and it registered 195 degrees.

submitted by cmos - 2 years ago
  • A: Temperatures can continue to rise 10-15 degrees during the rest period once meat is removed from the oven. This is called carry over cooking. The thermometer may also have been inserted into a different spot in the food. The center temperature will be lower than the smaller/thinner sides or the surface areas. Please reach back out with any additional questions. Thanks!

Q: Does the silicone cord come into contact in normal use with the probe's sharp wire entryway? Are there issues with the cord fraying there with normal use?

submitted by Frustrated consumer - 2 years ago
  • A: If used properly, the probe should not puncture the silicone cord. Be sure to store the probe wrapped in a way to keep it safe. The wire probe is clamped onto the silicone cord so it should not become frayed with normal use. Please reach back out if you have any additional questions. Thanks!

It worked great for about a year, and now the prove is totally out of whack, no longer gives correct temperatures and leads to completely inaccurate cooking times. Really disappointing because it WAS great when it worked. You're better off spending money on a quality brand, this ain't it.

I love it at first. It was fast reading, and the option to set a target temperature and alarm was really useful instead of constantly opening the oven to check for doneness. Purchased in August 2019, and winter 2021, mine started to exhibit the same signs of failure mentioned in other reviews. It would show “Lo” instead of the actual temp, and when it actually showed a number, was not accurate when checked against other thermometers. I didn’t expect this to last forever, but I did expect it to last longer than the batteries it came with.

This Helped Me Make The Best Turkey I've Ever Roasted. Based On The Bird's Weight Alone, I Would Have Roasted It A Lot Longer, But This Thermometer Helped Me Accord What Would Have Been A Set, Overcooked Turkey.

Works as advertised and works well until the probe stops working. The package says you can close the oven door on the probe wire, but after doing that tens of times the probe insulation eventually melts. Good for the price, I've bought two and one lasted two months and the other a year (and I cook very frequently); but for my next one I'll be trying something more expensive. I would recommend this if you just want something cheap or are not convinced an instant-read thermometer will be helpful to you. When it breaks you can buy a nicer one.

Probe Stops Working Over time..

LA_AZ - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
I found this very useful with good design and features. However, the temperature probe no longer works after about 10-12 uses. It displays a constant "Lo" regardless of the actual temperature of the food after cooking for several hours.
