Five-Star Commercial Meat Thermometer
Taylor 5990 Meat Thermometer is part of
Taylor's Five-Star Commercial line of kitchen products, which are designed
for accuracy, readability, and reliability. These products feature
heavy duty construction, large dials and displays, bold graphics,
and deluxe features. The 5990
ensures that the meat or poultry that
you're cooking has reached the proper temperature or doneness level. This precision analog instrument features tough,
corrosion-resistant stainless steel construction and a measuring range of
110°F to 216°F. The case portion containing the dial and mechanism is 2-7/8 inches in diameter. Overall length is
5 inches, and the stem length is 4-3/8 inches.
The Taylor 5990 Meat Thermometer features a
clearly marked and easy-to-read dial. On it are indicated, boldly
and in distinctive colors, four USDA recommended minimum internal
temperatures for a variety of meats at specific doneness levels. These
are beef rare (145°F), ground beef/beef medium/fresh ham (160°F), beef
well/pork (170°F), and poultry (180°F). A blue temperature minder
that slides around the dial edge can be placed at any desired target
temperature. When the red dial pointer reaches that temperature,
remove the meat from the oven. Additional USDA recommended internal
temperatures for more kinds of food are listed in a table on the
back of the 5990's package.
One thing you'll find on the Taylor 5990's
dial that doesn't appear on ordinary meat thermometers is a TEST point at
212°F, the boiling point of fresh water at sea level. This represents an
easy means of ensuring that your thermometer remains accurate. Please be
aware that the boiling point decreases as altitude increases, so if you
live well above sea level, the temperature shown when the 5990's stem is
placed in boiling water will be lower than 212°F.
The 5990 thermometer is ruggedly
constructed, highly accurate, and NSF® Certified.

thermometer cool to room temperature first.
