This pen-style thermometer measures temperatures from -40- to 450-degrees Fahrenheit. A large 1.25-inch LCD display provides at-a-glance readings from almost any angle. An anti-microbial housing provides added safety and hygiene. The thermometer also possesses a hold feature so meat can be removed from the oven prior for safer and easier reading. A black nylon lanyard and convenient pocket clip keeps the thermometer close at hand at all times.
