Every Time!
Perfect for thin cuts of meat, fish or poultry. Simply flip
down the rapid-response thermocouple probe and insert
it into food as thin as 1/8-inch. BioCote® technology
gives the water resistant housing constant, built-in
antimicrobial protection, providing a finish that helps
prevent microbes from growing on the surface. The display features extra big digits and can
be backlit for low light conditions.
The TCT572 offers Minimum and Maximum modes.
Minimum mode displays the lowest temperature among
multiple readings. Maximum mode displays the highest
temperature among multiple readings.
Note: In the following instructions, names of the control
buttons are shown in CAPS. Function information that appears
on the display is shown in BOLD CAPS.
Battery Installation
The thermometer beeps when the battery needs to be replaced.
1. Power off the unit before installing the battery. A malfunction may occur if the power is on when the battery is installed. If a malfunction occurs, press
the RESET button on the back or restart the device.
2. Using a small Phillips screwdriver, remove the screw
on the top by turning it counter clockwise.
3. Pull side panel completely out.
4. Install two CR2032 batteries observing polarity shown
in compartment.
5. Replace the battery cover. Important: THE WATER RESISTANT FEATURE REQUIRES
MAINTAINING THE RUBBER GASKET EVENLY WITHIN
THE GROOVE.
6. Fasten the screw on the top by turning it clockwise,
being careful not to over-turn.
Operating Instructions
A.On/Off
1. Press the POWER button to turn the thermometer
on.
2. The TCT572 will automatically turn off after 10
minutes of inactivity.
3. Press the POWER button again to turn the
thermometer off and conserve battery life.
B.Temperature Scale

1. Press the °F/°C button to change the scale. The
°F or °C symbol changes on the display and a beep
sounds.
C.LCD Backlight Thermometer
1. Press the LIGHT button to turn the backlight on
2. The backlight will stay on for 5 seconds.
D.Temperature Measurement
Important: THE PROBE MAY BE DAMAGED IF
MEASUREMENT TEMPERATURE IS LOWER THAN
-58°F/-50°C OR HIGHER THAN +572°F/+300°C.
Note: The TCT572 is intended for food service use — do not
use for safety related applications.
1. Flip down the probe until fully extended.
2. Insert the probe at least 0.25"/6.3 mm into the food.
3. The current cooking temperature appears on the display.
4. Wearing a heat resistant glove, flip the probe back
into the case when finished.
Important: DO NOT TWIST THE PROBE OR ROTATE IT IN
WRONG DIRECTION. EXCEPTIONAL STRESS ON PROBE
MAY CAUSE IT TO BREAK.
CAUTION: Probe may be HOT after use. Always wear a
heat resistant glove to touch the stainless steel probe or
sensor cable during or just after cooking. Do not touch
with bare hands.
E.Maximum Mode
1. Press the MAX/MIN button once. MAX appears on
the display along with the last highest/maximum
temperature.
2. To clear the MAX/MIN reading, Press the MAX/MIN
button once, then press the CLEAR button. “–––”
appears on the display.
F. Minimum Mode
1. Press the MAX/MIN button twice. MIN appears
on the display along with the last lowest/minimum
temperature.
2. To clear the MAX/MIN reading, Press the MAX/MIN
button twice, then press the CLEAR button. “–––”
appears on the display.
G.Recalibration
1. Place the stem into a mixture of 3 parts ice and 1
part water.
2. Press the OFFSET button for 2 seconds and until
the beep sounds. The display will animate and
display 0.0°F/°C.
3. Press the OFFSET button repeatedly as needed to
offset the factory calibration from -3.2 °F/
-2.0 °C to +3.2 °F/+2.0 °C.
H.Battery Status
1. When the voltage on the battery is low, LO flashes
on the display along with the battery status icon.
2. The thermometer beeps when the battery needs to be replaced.
I.Reset
1. Press the RESET button to reset the thermometer
to factory defaults.
Note: Clean the thermometer probe before each use.
Note for Induction Cooktops: Sometimes, the induction
cooktop magnetic field may interfere with digital thermometers.
If there is interference, briefly turn off the induction cooktop to
get a digital thermometer reading or use a dial thermometer.
Important: DO NOT LEAVE THERMOMETER CASE IN HOT
OVEN. CASE IS NOT HEAT RESISTANT. HAND WASH AND
DRY. DO NOT IMMERSE HOUSING IN LIQUID.
Tip: Meat should be allowed to “rest” for 10 to 15 minutes
after it is removed from oven. This allows time for the meat’s
internal temperature to stabilize and the juices to redistribute.
This will result in a roast that is both juicier and easier to carve.
Care of Your Product
Precautions
•Do not submerge any part of the thermometer in water.
•Wipe clean with a damp cloth.
•Store the thermometer at room temperature between
-4 to +149°F/–20 to +65°C..
•Dispose of used battery promptly and keep away from
children.
•Always wear a heat resistant glove to touch the
stainless steel probe during or just after cooking. Do not touch with bare hands.
•Keep the batteries, stainless steel probe and sensor
cable away from children.
•Clean the probe and dry thoroughly after use.
•Do not clean the case with abrasive or corrosive
compound, which may scratch the plastic and corrode
the electronic circuits.
•Do not subject the unit to excessive force shock,
dust, temperature or humidity, which may result in
malfunction, shorter electronic life span, damaged
battery and distorted parts.
•Do not tamper with the unit’s internal components.
Doing so will invalidate the warranty on the unit and
may cause unnecessary battery damage and distorted
parts.
•Do not subject the unit to excessive exposure to direct
sunlight. The unit is not waterproof — do not immerse
it into water or expose to heavy rain.
•To avoid deformation, do not place the unit in extreme
temperatures. Never burn the probe directly over the
fire. Do not use the probe when the temperature is
above 572°F/300°C. Doing so will deteriorate the
probe.
•Do not use the thermometer in a microwave oven.
•Always read the users manual thoroughly before
operating.
