The Cooper DTT361 is a compact leave-in food/cooker thermometer with a clock/timer function. It will annunciate when a timer expires or a set temperature is reached using a flashing LED and a beeper.
The unit uses a single silicone-clad cable sensor that can be inserted into food or used to measure cooker temperature. The alarm temperature is set using up and down buttons, and the alarm can be turned off, if desired. There is also an down counter that will trigger an alarm. Using hour, minute and second buttons, the maximum time is 23:59:59. When a time is set, there is a memory button that will capture the setting if that same timer interval needs to be used again. Pressing the memory button will reload the previously-stored time. When not using the timer, a clock displaying the tiime of day is displayed.
The unit displays excellent accuracy, always within a degree.
The manufacturer’s contact info, including address, telephone number, and website, and operating instructions are printed on the packaging material. The unit is covered by a one year limited warranty.
We give this a Silver medal for performance and price in a basic configuration.
Leave in Food, Leave in Cooker
