78 A Giveaway to Save Your Thanksgiving Turkey! **CLOSED**

Did you know that you cannot rely on the pop-up timer on your Thanksgiving turkey? 


Herbed Turkey Breast, Step by Step

Did you know that it is very easy to cook a prime rib?

Prime Rib, Step by Step
It is, if you have the right equipment.

I am grateful that my oven has a built-in probe to create temperature perfect roasts and meats.  I set my oven probe to 165°F for my turkey breast, take it out, cover it with foil and it will reach the optimal 170°F fifteen minutes later. 

Don't have one?

You're in luck!  I'm giving away this ... a Polder digital oven probe/thermometer/timer!

Here's the best thing ... it's not just for your oven.  It comes with a pan clip, so you you can test the temperature of your yogurt, cheese, sauces, and while making candy ~ the temps range from 32°F-392°F.  I think that's way cool.

Oh, and it beeps when it reaches the pre-set temperature ~ no more overdone or dry turkeys!

You want one?

  1. In addition to using it for meat, it would be great for bread too.

  2. A new thermometer would be great! The one I have beeps at the wrong time, so I wind up having to watch the temp, which is dangerous, as I get distracted!

  3. I use a thermometer like that, but it's super cheap and doesn't always work right. I could really use a nice new one! I would use when roasting a chicken; that's the best way to know when it's done.

  8. I used to have a meat thermometer and the kids broke it a couple of years ago. I would use it to cook meats..especially when I cook a roast!

  12. I love these thermometers. I'd use mine to roast to make candy and for syrup-y frosting. Thermometer are essential for good technique and food safety. Thanks for such a great giveaway just in time for the holidays.

  13. Oh boy could I use this!!! My husband just dropped my instant read thermometer in the batch of beer his was making last weekend. With the holidays coming up, I have a turkey and roast planned for Thanksgiving and a Ham for Christmas, how will I do it without my thermometer. Oh please pick me.....with the clip too I can assure he will NOT drop this one in the beer :)

  14. I would use this for anything that I possibly could use it for.

  15. I am in charge of the turkey this year, so that's definitely what I would use it for!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I've been thinking about buying one of these. I would use it every time I roast meat.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I am already a follower of this fabulous website:)

  18. I would use this in so many ways! I would use it to make my own dairy free yougurt. I would use it to cook meat the perfect way, and to make candy. Someday, when I am brave enough, I would use it to make cheese too! :)

    Thanks for this chance Freida. You are amazing!

    (and I hope I win)

  19. I would totally use this for my turkey. People get weird about how cooking stuffing inside the turkey is unsafe, but it's so good! This could possibly save my life...:)

  20. I would give it to my daughter, who has three kids and an unpredictable oven, and who also loves to make candy.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I follow via RSS feed

    ReplyDelete
  22. I did all of the above!

    I would use it for making candy and yogurt and everything in-between.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I would definitely use this for cooking meats. I've never made candy, but maybe this thermometer could inspire me. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Definitely turkey, and finding that optimal oil temperature on the stove.

  25. My hubby gave me one of these for Christmas last year and I loved using it to keep meat nice and moist and perfectly cooked, but somehow it broke, so I'd LOVE a new one!

  30. Of course I would be using this thermometer in so many ways I couldn't count them all, but mostly it would be for judging the doneness of meats. Very important. Thanks for the entry. I don't have any kind of thermometer and winning this would be a blast!

    ReplyDelete
  31. My stove is over 60 yrs old! It's a gas/wood combo that I love, but it tends to heat hot. This would be a great gadget to help me with meats...I tend to overcook them...dry :P

  44. What an awesome timer. I could SO use this for everything. I have a fairly new oven that doesn't seem to know it is supposed to stay hot. It's been fixed but still there have been way too many things ruined because they are not done. Very frustating to think a meal is done only to cut into it and find raw in the middle.

    I don't own an awesome thermometer like this and would use it for every meal cooked in my oven. And during the holidays when making my candies, with this I may even be brave enough to try those candies I've always been afraid to as I've never found a thermometer I trusted. This one surely would help.

    Thank you for the opportunity to possibly have an awesome thermometer.

  63. We have used a thermometer/timer like this one for checking meat temps in the oven or on the grill and for making my homemade caramels each winter. But ours just died, so I would love to win a new one!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I pinned this, and I would use this to make sure I don't give anyone food poisoning from undercooked meat!!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I'd use it form my thanksgiving turkey and for when I cook meats!! Specifically, chicken - it always weirds me out when I don't know if it's cooked properly and I usually cook it until it's too dry.
