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.
Can I calibrate this thermometer in ice water?
Thermometers intended for measuring food and liquid with higher temperatures, such as this thermometer, should be calibrated in boiling water while those used for taking lower temperatures should be calibrated in ice water. To calibrate your thermometer in boiling water, bring clean water to a boil and place the thermometer probe into the boiling water for at least one minute. The thermometer should read between 210 and 214 degrees Fahrenheit. Record the difference and adjust your thermometer as needed.

I visited the webstaurantstore site today to see if anyone else has had trouble with this thermometer. After about a year of use, it reads "Lo" which is a prompt to calibrate. I tried calibrating, and even tried installing a new battery, but every time I try to calibrate it, the reading remains "Lo". Based on other reviews, I realize it's nothing I'm doing wrong. Sounds like this just happens sometimes to this unit. We have two in our food rescue kitchen, and we find this to be very easy to use, clean, and store. I hope the manufacturer can figure out the glitch. I would buy again if they can resolve this glitch. Thanks!

I have purchased several of these - it’s nice that it is water proof - good to check temp of items in the warmer or the grill

Ryan P. on 01/12/2021

Very nicely made thermometer, stands up to a lot of abuse in the kitchen. These do have a sensor malfunction from time to time that requires them to be replaced but for the cost it's worth it.

Kam W. from Blount Memorial Hospital on 09/10/2020

Thermometer buttons became increasingly unresponsive after 5-6 months of lite holding temp usage, followed by loss of calibration, which was a permanent issue due to the button failure preventing re-calibration.

Frank P. on 07/15/2020

Thank you for your review, Frank! We are sorry this Taylor 9848EFDA 2 7/8 inch Waterproof Digital Pocket Probe Thermometer with Backlight - Dishwasher Safe has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!

This is a great little gadget and is very accurate. I like it because the probe is not to big for my steaks and is long enough to reach the center of my roast. Another great buy.

Victor R. on 05/11/2020

I really love this thermometer. It works well and fairly quickly. I love the backlight, the snap-on probe cover and the fact that it is dishwasher safe.

Beverly G. on 04/24/2020

Love these thermometers. Reads accurately and i tie it right where i need it. Works great and i would order again and recommend it to anyone.

Sherry S. from Silapheth LLC // DBA: Asian Street Cravings on 02/16/2020

This is the best thermometer I have ever owned! Takes about 3 seconds to get an accurate temperature reading. I've gently hand washed it without incident. One odd thing about it. It automatically turns off after a few minutes but if you want to turn it off earlier you have to hold down the button which in turn turns on the backlight. I was worried that always turning on the back light would drain the battery but I've had it for 2 years and haven't needed to change the battery yet. But besides that little quirk I'm extremely happy with this little thing.

Samuel L. on 02/13/2020

The taylor 2 7/8" waterproof digital pocket probe thermometer with blacklight is great to have when checking the temperature. It is great that is' dishwasher safe too.

Wayne S. from Wayne's Smoke Shack on 02/03/2020

The best thermometer out there. Its easy to read. The battery is very long lasting and the device is extremely accurate. We have never had a problem with them and we have them in all parts of the restaurant for staff to use.

David A. on 01/10/2020

Have had this quite a while and it's still my go thermometer. It's quick and easy to use with accurate readings. Very easy to clean right up. Wouldn't hesitate to buy again when a new one is needed.

Jacqueline C. from WC CANDY on 09/23/2019

I always carry one of these thermometers with me. I have been in this industry for over 10 years and have only managed to break one of these thermometers. They're fantastically durable and waterproof, having survived being washed with my apron or chef coat on multiple occasions, have a thin probe tip for minimal marking on food items, and are always accurate to boot! I can't recommend these pocket thermometers enough!

Davilan B. on 08/04/2019

I was very happy with this thermometer for a few weeks, but now it only displays "LO". I thought it meant low battery and bought new ones, but still just "LO", so I guess it's just broken. Maybe this one was just a dud—it otherwise seemed quite good while it worked.

Dan M. from Tinker Kitchen Inc. on 04/09/2019

Thank you for your review, Dan! We are sorry this Taylor 9848EFDA 2 3/4 inch Waterproof Digital Probe Thermometer - 1.5mm Diameter Probe has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!

We bought several of these for our Pastry Arts program and they have performed very well. They are easy to read, fairly fast to get results and easy to keep clean.

Awbcc P. from A.W. BEATTIE CAREER CENTER on 02/26/2019

We have three thermometers like this. Other than replacing the battery they have had no problems whatsoever. Of course Taylor is a great brand for thermometers too.

David D. on 02/21/2019

I have been using this Taylor Digital Thermometer for years now. I bought this newer one for my son. They are the best and most dependable Digital Thermometers on the market today. I recommend everyone who cooks and grills to have one of these.

Anatolij P. from E-Sell Trading Services on 12/11/2018

These are the best we've purchased so far, they are larger than I prefer personally but great for our kitchen because they're easy to find. Holds up well with daily use, would recommend.

Kendra D. from LSCA on 12/07/2018

The best pocket thermometer we've ever purchased! Durable, waterproof, easy to read display. Doesn't break or die or need new batteries constantly like less expensive models.

Todd T. from George Henry's on 11/15/2018

I have been using these thermometers across several restaurants for years. One finally made it home, and seems to be working as intended so far.

William A. on 11/13/2018

It’s so easy to temp food with these. It’s quick and accurate. Best part is you can throw them in the dishwasher and they still work!
