    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.)

    Convenient, Compact and Colorful!

    I am so happy with the Chef Alarm I purchased from New England Cheesemaking. It has versatile functions in one compact unit - low and high temperature settings, timer settings and alarms to let you know when your settings have been reached. This frees me up to do other things without having to run back to check on things. I also bought the submersible thermometer which make the unit even more versatile. And it comes in fun colors - I have lime green!

    I have used the ChefAlarm for 2 seasons of cheese making and I love it. The high and low temperature settings with an alarm allow you to monitor the curds without have to constantly stand over the pot. The alarm is loud and can be heard across the house. The built in timer keeps everything in one device. The ChefAlarm is not waterproof but the buttons are sealed so splashes wipe off with no damage.
