About this item

Highlights

  • Made of Stainless Steel
  • Wipe Clean with Damp Cloth
  • 6" Probe & 46" Foot Silicone Cord
  • Measures temp without opening the oven door

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 46" 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: The 392' F maximum temperarure seems like an odd number. I often cook my chicken in a 400' oven. Will these few degrees above the recommended temperature really be a problem?

submitted by Miss Mary B - 5 months ago
  • A: The thermometer is used to take the temperature of the food, not the oven. The cord is safe up to 485 degrees F, ensuring that it is not exposed to a direct flame, flare-ups, or contact with cooking surfaces. Be sure to insert the probe at least 1.5 inches to get the correct temperature inside the food. Enjoy your chicken!

submitted by Peggy - 7 months ago
  • A: Hi Peggy, Yes! This thermometer conveniently monitors exact temperature of meat, poultry, or any food without opening the oven door. The Taylor temperature displays temperature in Fahrenheit (32 degrees F to 392 degrees F) and Celsius (0 degrees C to 200 degrees C).

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?

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 - 2 years ago

Q: will this work with an induction cooktop

submitted by HKScribner - 3 years 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 - 3 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!

Easy-to-use meat thermometer with magnetic base for convenient placement near oven or grill. Long probe can be awkward small meat pieces, but overall minor inconvenience. Used 10 times with success.

The Goddess - 4 months ago
Quit after a few uses. It worked for a time. It was taken care of perfectly, never dropped, always put away when not in use. Then one day it started showing Lo and would no longer sense. I really liked the alarm feature and really came to depend on this thermometer when cooking.. I'm low carb so I cook meat pretty often - usually when I've had my fill of eggs and avocados. I'm really disappointed in the longevity. I'm ordering one that's 25% of the price from Temu and it'll probably last longer. What a disappointment.

TargetMom1114 - 7 months ago
Didn't last longer than 2 years. I was gifted one 12 years ago, same brand, and it lasted up to a year ago after the cord got ripped out. Purchased this about 2 years ago and it now won't temp properly and always reads "low temp". If the wire gets twisted up it seems to affect the reading. These should last longer than that.

MaevisMiseria - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
after a couple months the beep to indicate the desired temp stopped working, which completely defeats the purpose of this thermometer. yes, i can still see the internal temp of what’s cooking with the oven door closed, but if i wanted to constantly be monitoring it i’d have gotten a cheaper thermometer.

Test kitchen - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
Works every time. This one has an audible temperature alert (set the desired temperature for doneness, and unit will beep when food temperature is reached). No overcooked food here! The temperature probe has a long, thin wire cable to reach the base unit outside a closed oven or grill. (The unit should be placed at a safe distance from heat source to avoid overheating unit- we used another one that worked well for very many years until it came in prolonged contact with the lid of the grill.)

This is a cool idea for a thermometer but it over cooks your food. The temp reading is off and while the thermometer said our prime rib was a nice medium rare it was definetly a medium well. I will be returning this when I get a chance.

The meat thermometer works well. I gave it three stars because it has a very serious limitation. You can’t use it in ovens over 392 degrees. That makes it less functional. I didn’t check those specs before I purchased it.

It works as advertised! Love the fact that you don't need to keep opening the oven to check the temperature. Tested the 1st time with my old thermometer and the accuracy between the two was pretty accurate. No need for me to get a fancier one that I can monitor on my phone

Wanted a Thermopro or any other but was in a time crunch and had to get this one again. Other one I bought my for kid, but it only lasts for about a 9-12 months then oven cord probe goes out. Maybe they should make the cord and probe separate to buy since I have two working displays, doing nothing.
