An instant-read thermometer
An instant-read thermometer is another essential kitchen tool that’s often overlooked.
For as little as $10, this little gadget can quickly show whether you’ve reached the correct cooking temperature. That can make all the difference when you’re trying to whip up the perfect steak, roast chicken, baked goods, candy and even that bird for Turkey Day.
If you spend any time in your kitchen, you need an instant-read thermometer.
