Where to find digital oven thermometer for pizza place? Sat, 03/10/12 12:51 AM (permalink)
Forgive me; it's technically my boyfriend's restaurant. His birthday is Monday and I really want to find a digital oven thermometer online. Been searching around but maybe I just don't know what kind of thermometer that is? Seems anything digital is probe....so I guess it's non-contact infrared he wants? Any insight greatly appreciated! Thanks! I don't know anything about this stuff!

    I got one from Harbor Freight when they were on sale. They have a website, so you can try to find it online.
    I think most Health Departments don't feel this are legit for taking temperature of food because they do not penetrate the surface of the food like a stem thermometer does. But it would be good for testing the temp of a pizza oven. Checking for cool/hot spots.
    I've used mine on our fireplace and it went up to 800-900 degrees or so. I saw it listed for $40 on HF's website.
    Good luck!

      thats nice but the probe option would also be killer. is there one that does both?

          Dual models usually do not register as high in temperature...
