temperature manually.
1. Make your Meat Type and Meat Doneness selections and press “SET”.

temperature.
3. As you make the adjustment, the Meat Type shown on the display will change to Custom.
4. To save your selection, press and release the “SET” button.
Current Temperature
1. Insert the narrow end of the temperature probe into the thickest part of the food
being cooked. Be sure the tip is not touching bone, gristle, the pan or inserted
into the cavity of fowl.
2. Current internal temperature of the meat will show on the display.
3. When the current temperature of the food reaches the target temperature, the
wireless display will beep.
Be careful when touching the temperature probe and probe wire if it has been in or
near hot food or surfaces.
Ambient Temperature
Monitor the temperature in your oven, grill or smoker with the ambient temperature probe.
1. Adjust the ambient probe clip to fit the size of your cooking grate
by bending as needed.
2. Squeeze both sides of the clip together and attach to the grate.
3. Thread the ambient probe through the top of the clip.
IMPORTANT: Keep the
ambient probe cord away
from food at all times, even
while cooking.
Time Left to Cook
Time Left to Cook estimates the amount of time food needs to cook. Cook time
is determined by measuring and monitoring the cooking process, then applying
a series of estimating methods.
Time Left to Cook is designed to work best with large oven roasted meats,
but can also be used for other cooking applications.
1. Turn the wireless display on and confirm desired settings including the Target
Temperature.
2. For optimum performance, probe should be inserted into the thickest part of
the meat and plugged in at the start of the cooking process. Do not remove
the probe or power the unit off during cooking.
6
3. Once cooking begins, the rising temperature automatically prompts the
wireless display to calculate estimated cook time. The display shows rotating
dashes during the calculation process. Once the internal food temperature
reaches 105°F (41°C), the calculation will be displayed.
4. When estimated time left to cook expires (or reaches 0:00), an audible beep
sounds on the wireless display. In most cases, time left to cook automatically
adjusts for changes in the cooking process, however the following actions
may impact its accuracy:
•Removing food from the oven
•Adding cool liquids to cooking food
•Changing the oven temperature during cooking
•Disconnecting or removing the probe during cooking
•In some cases, basting
If you feel Time Left to Cook estimation has been compromised, reset the
wireless display by pressing and holding the “POWER” button to power OFF
and press again to power back ON.
Backlight
Wireless Display: Press and release any button to momentarily illuminate
the display for 10 seconds. From normal operation mode, press and HOLD the
◄ and ► buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds to keep display illuminated.
Display will remain illuminated until those steps are repeated, or the batteries
are removed.
Thermometer Base: Press and hold the “BACKLIGHT” button for 5 seconds
to activate the backlight. Display will remain illuminated until those steps are
repeated, or the batteries are removed.
