Instant Read Dial Display

This thermometer's 1" dial display makes it easy to quickly see the internal temperature, and it can read temperatures between 0 and 220 degrees Fahrenheit with an accuracy of +/- 2 degrees. The lens is made from Lexan shatter-proof plastic for maximum durability and safety. Its shock protectant internal gel prevents the thermometer calibration from shifting if dropped. Plus, an accelerant applied to the thermometer's coil enhances its response time.

5" Stainless Steel Stem

The durable stainless steel stem allows for fast, easy cleaning and ensures that this thermometer will last you a long time. It measures 5" long so that you can penetrate deep into the product for an accurate reading.

Storage Sleeve

The plastic storage sleeve is made from anti-microbial plastic to keep your thermometer clean and ready to use. A built-in clip makes it easy to secure and take with you. It can also be used as a handle to keep hands a safe distance away from heat.

Easy Calibration

The storage sleeve features a built-in Safe-T-Set calibration wrench so that you can easily re-calibrate the thermometer and ensure an accurate reading, without having to keep track of a separate tool.

Customer Q&AAsk a Question

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.

Great price for a solid analog thermometer. It reads temperatures quickly and appears to be accurate. You will have a hard time finding a better deal for a similarly well-performing thermometer. I would purchase this product again.

Samuel L. on 01/25/2021

Needed a probe thermometer for a local farmers market event as per health inspector. This was exactly what I needed and I couldn't be happier with the price and quality!

4 B. from Aloha Tropical Bowls on 03/21/2020

Easy to re calibrate and perfect price to buy enough for all the cooks to have one. Great product made to last and good quality.

Cristian A. from Rick's Roadside Cafe on 12/02/2019

Great product at a great price. I bought a few of these for my restaurant. I use them daily to check soup temperatures & they work great!

Justin R. on 06/04/2018

I bought three of these for my restaurant. I use them daily for testing the temperature of soup. The display is easy to read. Great price too.

Justin R. on 06/03/2018

This thermometer has lasted us quite a while. The stem is not flimsy and reads quickly. This allows for you to get food back in the oven or on the grill without wasting time.

Kevin C. from DJK Establishments, LLC on 05/05/2018

i have been using this thermometer for over 2 years, it is great and gives me no problem. and the price is the best part everywhere else its pricey.

Zarah on 02/17/2018

These Taylor 1" instant read thermometers are great . They are a classic design and work great. Made well and will last a long time . We will definitely be purchasing more of these in the future.

Ryan H. from Devonshire Industries LLC on 01/09/2018

Great little thermometer that can be stuck anywhere. It is made with a clip on it so it can be easily attached. We have been using ours for 2 years with out any problems.

Joshua R. from Panichellis Pizzeria on 01/01/2018

The Taylor 5" Classic 1" Classic Dial Instant Read Thermometer is highly accurate and efficient. It is well made and it records temperatures quickly. I would highly recommend this for any residential kitchen.

Sara H. on 10/17/2017

This probe thermometer works great and has a nice holder too!! Will be purchasing more in the near future. The price is very reasonable as well

Andy S. from Vault Catering And Events on 08/16/2017

Great idea to have the adjustment wrench as part of the thermometer sleeve. Makes it easy to calibrate the thermometer quickly and accurately without having to have an extra wrench on hand.

Eric I. from Perry's Pizza on 07/05/2017

Very handy thermometer. seems accurate, but be very careful because I screwed one of these up bad trying to pull it out of the holder can twist the head and make the temp way off

Travis F. from Sweet Pea's Cupcakery Cafe on 02/10/2017

This is a cool thermometer! It's super easy to read just stick in your meat and read! I love that it's colored. And this does not get semerged in liquid.

Elijah on 01/27/2017

Every cook needs one of these. Great price and last a long time. Remember to clean if the meat is not yet cooked. We have separate for diff meats

Maryanne B. on 11/22/2016

Easy to read pocket thermometer with built in calibrating wrench. A must have for every member of the kitchen staff. It is compact yet still easy to read.

Jason S. on 11/07/2016

Works great and we love the adjustment tool worked into the cover. Most of the other adjustable thermometers i found for sale either lacked the tool or had a really slow response time to temp changes. These are a good buy!

Ty B. from Workhorse Coffee Llc on 09/26/2016

These thermometers are very easy to read. We use them several times a day and they seem to hold up well. A great value for what we paid.

Terry M. from Tranquillity on 01/30/2016

I wonder why people spend so much, often fifty dollars or more, on something as normal as a thermometer. This fits in your pocket easily, and reads temperatures accurately. At this price point you can have multiple for different kinds of meats to avoid cross-contamination.

Clayton M. on 10/14/2015

Classic old school thermometer works really well. It also gives accurate temperatures, just make sure every once in awhile you calibrate it like you should. A couple degrees off with food could go bad.

Daniel S. from Avenue54 LLC on 08/17/2015

The classic instant read thermometer is a blessing! It clips onto your shirt or coat pocket and you don't have to hunt for it on some nearby level surface. It gives you a quick read and is simple to use.

Carl H. on 12/08/2014

These are perfect thermometers for standard restaurant and home kitchen use. We keep a supply of these throughout our kitchen to constantly check food. We use a bottle with sanitizer water in it and leave the thermometer in there throughout the day. We try to check meat and fish temps before the food goes to the table.

Mike B. from Barbecue Blast Inc. on 11/08/2014

every kitchen needs to have several thermometers. we love these because of the ease of use and its really easy to set the temp when you need to. great price for a great product.

Randall H. from Randys Family Restaurant on 08/16/2014

The dial is pretty small so people that have trouble with fine print would have an issue. Not the fastest thermometer around but does the job and is accurate.

Luciana T. on 03/18/2014

These are a must have for any kitchen deep frying foods. These are cost effective and hold up very well to the daily abuse they seem to get

John H. from Harts Repair Service. LLC on 01/28/2014

The pocket clip is loose and it falls out allot. The dial is very small, less than an inch. It does respond fast, and is marked NSF.

Karen B. from Gilpin Market on 01/27/2014

This thermometer is great. We use it every night to temp our poultry, pork, and steak. The meter is easily to read and it is always accurate.
