Customer questions about this product

Is there a magnet on the back side?
No, this thermometer does not have a magnet on the back side. It does include a carrying case, and its thin, small size is convenient for transporting.
How do I safely and thoroughly clean my Taylor thermometer?
Your Taylor thermometer is constructed of a durable stainless steel probe, and in some cases, a plastic head. When cleaning your thermometer, do not immerse it in water or use it in the dishwasher unless the description specifically states that it is waterproof and dishwasher safe. Simply clean the stainless steel stem with hot, soapy water and wipe the head with a damp cloth.

The Taylor 9877FDA waterproof digital pen thermometer is an invaluable tool in the fight to prevent foodborne illness. This digital probe thermometer features an FDA recommended 1.5mm diameter probe that is 2 3/4" long, thinner than non-FDA recommended probe thermometers. The sensing area is located on the tip of the probe, making it ideal for thin foods like hamburger patties and fish fillets.

An antimicrobial storage case and sleeve, and convenient slim line pen design make the Taylor 9877FDA thermometer perfect for tracking food temperatures at all stages of the food service process, from receiving inventory to serving customers.

This pen thermometer is easily calibrated and has a temperature range of -40 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit for more versatile use. Plus, it offers a hold and minimum/maximum feature. An on/off button with auto off feature conserves battery life.

Sanitizing your thermometers can often be a hassle, so this probe thermometer is conveniently waterproof and can even go through the dishwasher so that you'll be sure it is perfectly clean after every use!

    thermometer great accurate digital temperature price thermometers Works quickly probe

    This is a really nice thermometer. We have been using it for a very long time and it still works great. The prices are great as always

    I'm in love! I finally don't have to cut meats open to see if they're "done," I can do it the safe way by registering the internal temperature. I tested this thermometer with both cold and hot foods and it was great. Really glad I bought this for my kitchen.

    awesome digital thermometer the temperature are accurate and the price is really incredible no question about it my cooks really appreciate that we order this for them

    from sergio's Posted on

    I have had this item for about a month. Though it doesn't seem to be very substantial, it has done the job so far. Time will tell if it will stand up to the abuse in a restaurant.

    from Sauder's Landing Posted on

    Great thermometer. Almost everyone has one of these in culinary school, and also at work. Waterproof is great, I just rinse it off. It is pretty accurate, I use it for cooking sugar.

    These digital thermometers give accurate readings. We use these daily with a lot of fried foods. They work well and hold up to the constant use with high temperature foods.

    from Avenue54 LLC Posted on

    Worked great when I first bought them to check final temps before transport, but even with hand washing and never submerging the thermometer, the face is bubbled from the inside and the digit reading is only partially displayed. Would be good for home use, but not in a commercial setting.

    from Elite Catering Posted on

    Works good. Not super fast, can't complain. Good for temping things mid day but not great for a quick temp if that's what you need.

    from backwater Posted on

    With chicken being one of our best seller, this product gets used daily and has not failed us yet. The price is great and so is the product!

    This thermometer has functioned flawlessly. Having been reading magazines and finally caught on that unless your experience is such YOU don't need a thermometer, this is a mandatory device. It reacts quickly, retains the temperature long enough to be read when withdrawn, has a probe long enough to penetrate anything other than a steamer roast to it's core and it's thin enough to penetrate with little force (So the meat isn't sliding around while you attempt to measure.). Battery life seems very good. I am pleased and would recommend it to anyone who needs a quick temperature check.

    These Taylor probes are fantastic! The digital scale is so much easier to read than standard dial end probes. We have several of both in our kitchen and the Taylor digitals are the only ones that ever get used anymore.


    We use these during our internal health inspections and my only complaint is that it seems like it takes a while to get a final reading.

    Posted on

    These are cheap but awful! I received two that didn't work immediately and within a month the other three have quit working. Batteries should last long than that and one we replaced the battery and it still could not keep it's display on for more than a second.

    Thank you for your review! We're sorry to hear your thermometers didn't work. For a heavier duty thermometer, try this Taylor Waterproof Digital Pocket Thermometer with Sleeve.

    use this too check internal temperature of meat. be careful not too leave in item in oven. will melt! overrall very satisfied and make the health inspector smile.

    from Cafe Marty Posted on

    A must have tool for any kitchen home or restaurant, this thermometer is accurate and has the cord to strap around your neck so it does not get loss. Great price from Web too.

    from Green Zone B & G Posted on

    Wonderful item! Works quickly and accurately and is such a great deal on this website. We bought several for our store in order to take temperatures for soup temps, line ingredients, and more! Again, can't say enough about this item.

    The Taylor waterproof digital pen thermometer is a nifty little thermometer for the home chef, or backyard BBQ king/queen. It registers quickly, and appears to be accurate.

    Posted on

    These Taylor thermometers are a standard! Always accurate and dependable. We like this yellow version to keep it separated from our other black ones. Buy it!

    from Minden Meat and Deli Posted on

    What a great value for a good thermometer. I have tested the water proof as well and it holds up. Shows temp pretty quickly too.

    Posted on

    Nothing but good good things to say about this digital pen thermometer. I used it all the time and the lanyard is perfect instead of keeping it in the arm pocket of a chef jacket.

    from Antonino's Catering Posted on

    for this price this works like a charm and made heavy duty for a thermometer .wish it had a clip or some kind of different way to store. but would buy another

    from Ritzee Posted on

    very good quality thermometer that you can trust. You will spend more at local restaurant small ware shop. I am glad that I found webrestaurant

    Posted on

    Very good quality for an unbeatable price. This thermometer stands up well against others costing as much as $30 from the local supply house. Well built and quick reading.

    Posted on

    I have been using these thermometers for years, although this was the first time ordering from the Webstaurant. But, now that I know that I can get them much cheaper here, I have no reason to get them anywhere else ever again. These things are definitely my preferred thermometer.

    from A Tasty Affair Posted on

    The thermometers always get lost at work so I keep mine around my neck and pull it out when I need it. doesn't get used a lot at school because they push knowing without temping. good price. thanks

    Posted on

    Excellent thermometer. Self-Calibrating and quick to temp. Good range of temperatures. I can check my fryers and my food (hot and cold). Only downside is the battery cover comes off too easily. I had to tape mine on.

    from Cook-Out Posted on

    Waterproof. How about oil proof. Accidently dropped in a fryer. It took about 30 seconds to find it and remove it. Cleaned it off and it looks like new. Works great. The best thermometer I have ever used.

    from Longhorn Restaurant Posted on

    This thermometer is accurate though the reading is very slow. The thermometer is thick so I find it inconvenient to place it along with my pens and markers in the pockets of my sleeves.

    from Johnson & Wales Univesity Posted on

    I like that fact that its water proof and as well as inexpensive compared to other suppliers. the color is a little odd for me but it works great

    Posted on

    These digital pen thermometers are very convenient with the black string that allows you to wear it around your neck. They have a digital pen that serves as a probe to get precise measurements. We have bought multiples of these and use them everyday. Great price great buy!

    Posted on

    Awesome product. The board of health will like this also. It is very accurate and is a must have in any commercial or residential kitchen.

    from GDB Enterprises, LLC Posted on

    This thermometer has really come in handy. It's a great brand and is about as accurate as you can get. The price of it is awesome.

    Posted on

    It is very accurate even at room temp. The only problem is it needs a light. I travel and work in some pretty dark kitchens. I am going to buy the next model up. Taylors are always good.

    Posted on

    I use this as my backup thermometer. It is very reliable and accurate after the first time calibration. This thermometer is easy to clean and you dont have to worry about breaking it.

    Posted on

    when it comes to food saftey you can never do to much to stay fresh and in the temp range for the product and this probe therm does a great job

    from Randys family restaurant Posted on

    This was an upgrade to a previous model, and the functionality is excellent. Precise temperature, and appears to be well made and durable. The temperature changes almost instantly, and I trust it's accuracy.

    Posted on

    A gift for my son-in-law. He loves it and always wanted a digital thermometer. He does a lot of the cooking in the house and this thermometer meets his needs.

    Posted on

    This is an excellent digital thermometer with a lot of features found in much more expensive thermometers. The very thin probe tip reacts very quickly, giving the temperature in half the time of a standard instant-read thermometer. And the temp sensor is in the very tip of the probe, not an inch or so up the probe as in most. This lets you get a temperature exactly where you want it.

    from Mahogany Roasters Posted on

    Works great so far. We've been using this for about 4 months now and have not had any trouble. Love that it has a cord so we can hang it in the kitchen.
