Always get perfectly cooked meat with this digital meat thermometer. Let it quickly read the temperature of your meat or set your desired doneness of your beef, veal, lamb, pork, chicken or turkey to meet USDA recommended cooking temperatures. There is a built-in LED flashlight to help you cook in low light. The fork will automatically shut off after ten minutes to ensure the batteries won't run down during dinner. Wipe clean with a damp cloth after use - not dishwasher safe. Two AAA batteries are included.
