#CookBeta Digital Cooking Thermometer #Review

      Our family just got 93 lbs of pork for the winter.  Everything from roasts and hams to ribs and bacon.  It was a great investment!  Considering how often, or rather not often, we eat a home cooked meal, I expect it will last us a while.  The thing I'm most excited about is the roast.  The roast is huge!  It will definitely feed my family and my sister's family.  That's what I intend to use it for.  Roast, potatoes, carrots, creamed onions, and and diner rolls.  Mmmmm!
     One thing that I'm never great at though is telling whether the meat is done cooking.  I don't know how many times I have had to put chicken back into the oven because it was bleeding when I cut into it.  So something like a digital thermometer would be ideal.  The thermometer that I tried this week was the Cook Beta digital cooking thermometer.
     This thermometer is really portable.  It's made small, but long enough to really get into the meat.  It's got a clip on the back that can stick into the pocket of an apron or on to the top of one.  It could really stick onto any clothing if you aren't the apron type.  It has a removable cover to protect the probe and also to protect the user.
    It has four useful buttons.  One turns the thermometer on or off, one changes the temperature form Celsius to Fahrenheit, one that sets a min and max, and one that holds the temperature reading.  To be honest, I'm not sure when I'd ever use the max/min or the hold, but I can see why others would use it.  My favorite is the Fahrenheit and Celsius button.  I think this is awesome for when I find a foreign recipe online and I don't want to work out the math to figure out degrees.
      A particularly cool feature is that the probe cover doubles as a handle extender and clips onto the end closest to the digital readout.  Notice how the beginning and the end of that part is shaped the same, that's why.  This is super helpful especially for when you are having a barbecue so that your hands don't get too close to the grill.  But it's also a pretty great feature for the stove too.  That many inches is definitely going to make a difference when you're feeling the heat.
     As a whole, I think this thermometer is a pretty nice one and I'd recommend it if you are looking for a good one.  What about you?  Do you ever have to put back in bloody meat to cook longer?
