Validating Personal Thermometers

11 Jan 2016, Posted by Chris Waltman in Chris' Corner

Always make sure your thermometer/probe is properly validated.  Put a mixture of crushed ice and cold tap water in the Cooper-Atkins VALCUP  and allow the temperature to stabilize (2 min).  Place the probe into the ice water but be careful not to touch the sides or the bottom of the container.  After another two minutes the temperature reading should settle to the exact temperature.
