  How Do I Use a Food Thermometer?

Using a food thermometer is quick and easy to do. Insert the food thermometer into the side of the patty and wait for it to read 160F.

You can use a food thermometer with any cooking method. Whether you cook your hamburger patties on a BBQ, fry pan, or a double sided electric grill (George Foreman), it is equally important to remove the hamburger from the heat then check the temperature.

"Just think... You are already a good parent because you use a thermometer to check your child's temperature when they are sick. It's just as easy to use a food thermometer to check the temperature of their hamburgers."

There are two types of food thermometers for use with hamburger patties.
