A product review
Today i bought a new tool to use in the kitchen. Nothing special, but after using it one time I liked it already. My chef of the cooking course at Spermalie told me about it. I’m talking about a thermometer. Not just one that you need, when you are sick, but one you can use in the kitchen.
I bought it in a small Swedish store in Ghent. The name is Fantast and it cost only € 6,99. No, i don’t have any interests or shares in that company. It’s just a very useful tool.
You can set the temperature as you want. When the meat reaches the temperature it needs, an alarm goes off. For example, turkey is ready around 76°C – 80°C.
You can also use it for cakes, ribeye , beef, … For example, the “temperaturs of beef” is
- “bleu” or rare 45°C – 50°C”
- “saignant” or medium 55°C – 58°C
- “à point” or medium rosé 60°C – 68°C
- “bien cuit” or well done more than 70 °C
For other temperatures, have a look at Barbecue Magazine (in Dutch) or Amazing Ribs (in English)
The Fantast Thermometer also has a timer and even a magnet, so you can put it on the fridge. There is only one disadvantage: you can’t switch it on or off. So you have to take out the battery. But for only € 6,99 euro I don’t think you can complain about this. I know that one opinion is not always reliable, so i looked for some other opinions.
