RT600C Super Fast Thermometer – $16.15 + Hands on Review & Sitewide Sale

RT600C Super Fast Thermometer

I have this thermometer and like it very much.  In fact, it’s a Top Find.  It’s accurate, has a quick response time and it is waterproof.  Waterproof as in… toss it in the dishwasher kind of waterproof.  It looks like they have corrected one of the single issues that I have with my RT600C… they have added an Auto-Off feature.

This is a great thermometer that I can confidently recommend – Check out my Hands on Review.

Taylor Professional 9306 Dual IR/Thermocouple Thermometer

Taylor Professional 9306N Dual Temp IR/Thermocouple ThermometerThe Taylor Professional 9306 is a Dual Function Infrared Thermometer and probe Thermocouple Thermometer.

  • Taylor 9306N Splash-proof Dual Temperature Infrared Thermocouple Thermometer is a safe, non-contact device that measures surface temperatures.
  • It features a 4 inch fold out probe that measures internal temperatures and has an infrared range from -67 to 482 degrees fahrenheit and -55 to 250 degrees celsius.
  • It has a thermocouple range from -67 to 626 degrees fahrenheit and -55 to 330 degrees celsius
  • Other features include a white light targeting illumination zone, a HACCP check warning light system and adjustable sensitivity.

Since the IR function on this is no touch, you can check the temp of yeast washing and yeast rehydration water and your starter wort without the risk of infection.  I find mine particularly useful for rehydrating yeast.

A quality IR thermometer will give you a close approximation of surface temperatures.  Note that steam seems to throw off readings.  Uses include: Contained yeast rehydration water, chilled wort or starter temperature, kegerator, fermenter or fermenation area and beer tasting samples.

Since this has also has a built in standard thermocouple based thermometer, you’ve really got the best of both worlds with this thing.
