Safe, non-contact infrared thermometer measures surface temperatures
Fold-out probe measures internal temperatures
Bought this thermometer as an upgrade from a instant read probe thermometer and I really like it. It is on the pricey side, but the Infrared thermometer is a great resource for any chef. The temperatures are measured in .5 degree increments and reads fairly quickly; maybe 5 seconds per readout. The probe works very well and I find myself using the probe folded out at a 90 degree right angle from the main body as it keeps my hand out of the heat. It almost makes me wish the digital temp read out we're rotated 90 degrees so that when the probe were completely unfolded you could read the temp when held sideways. The infrared comes in super handy when measuring the temperature of hot water for yeast, maintaining the proper temperature of delicate butter sauces and even reading the surface temperature of foods to know when they are at a perfect temperature for serving. The infrared doesn't work well on reflective surfaces (such as a stainless steel pan) due to the light reflecting off the surface. Overall a good product that combines two temperature measuring tools that I lov
The combo of probe plus surface measure is very practical. The unit appears to have a higher level of quality than the others. It makes a perfect gift for my application. I would have ordered a second unit for myself, but the sale only covered one purchase.
I just purchased this from you..I cannot find out to see the digital readout of the temperature. What do I do?

Best Answer:Make sure batteries are installed. For checking internal temperature of a food, which the instructions call "In-Contact Thermocouple Probe Function [COT Mode]):first, swing the probe down so it is fully extended, then: "Insert the probe into the item to be measured and press the PROBE key..." --the temp will show in the readout box. For non-contact infrared surface temp reading, press SCAN and shine the ensuing white light on the item whose surface temp you want to measure. If you want further information and have lost your instruction sheet, you can find it online using "Taylor Model 9306N Thermometer Operating Instructions." SLT may have a link to this in their website.
You press the green probe button and insert the probe into the meat to get the probe read out, or the red scan button and hold it while pointing the scanner eye on the back at the source of heat to get the readout. If you still don't get the display to work perhaps you have a battery issue. I have been thoroughly satisfied with my purchase and use almost daily from checking meat temps to checking to see how hot my pan surface is to get a perfect sear. I even use the scan to check oil temps when frying. I have found it to be within a few degrees of using the probe for accuracy on oil temps.
This item is prone to glare from overhead lights or sunlight. I would try to shade the readout to block the glare. If that is not working you may have a defective unit. Mine works like a top, but they probably manufacture 1000 of these every day, you may have received that on in 10,000 product that has a bug.
Best Answer:Remove the rubber stopper from the battery compartment cover. Remove the screw under the rubber stopper. Open the battery compartment and replace the batteries. Place the battery compartment cover back in place tighten the screw and insert the rubber stopper.
