    Designed for commercial use, ChefAlarm delivers features not found in "houseware" cooking alarms. Continuous Min/Max display tells you how hot (or cold) your food got when you weren't looking. A "High Alarm" sounds when your food reaches your setting, and a first-of-its-kind "Low Alarm" is perfect for making yogurt and other cold dishes. Adjustable alarm volume can be heard in a noisy restaurant kitchen. The main temperature digits are big and easy-to-see from a distance. Touch the backlight button to read the display in the dark. ChefAlarm reads within ±2°F so you should never need a calibration adjustment, but the CAL feature can be used for fine-tuning your accuracy to better than ±1°F. Fold ChefAlarm flat and use the magnetic back on a metal surface or tilt the display up and use it on a counter. ChefAlarm comes with one Pro-Series High Temp Cooking Probe that measures to 572°F with a cable that withstands 700°F short term exposure. Every kitchen should have at least one ChefAlarm! DO NOT SUBMERGE.

    Uses Yogurt Making:
    • Set MAX ALARM to know when the temp of milk reaches 185F
    • Then set TIMER ALARM for 20 mins to hold it there (MIN ALARM set to 180F will let you know if heat needs to be increased)
    • Then set MIN ALARM to 115F to avoid over chilling the milk before adding culture.

    Uses for Cheese Making:

    • Set MAX ALARM to just below target milk temp to avoid overheating milk.
    • Useful to monitor the temperature of milk during slow heating using the TEMP and TIMER settings.
    • Set MIN ALARM one the cheese curd is at temp to know when more heating is needed.
    • Set MIN ALARM for cheeses that need to be held at a specific temp while cultures remain active after draining/molding (such as many soft or lightly pressed cheeses.)
