LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

The bottom left display is the actual temp of the meat and the right is the temp that I want that meat to reach (and then the alarm beeps).

These things do a lot for relatively short money. Highly recommend!

I use that Taylor one too, for roasting meats . I use a wind up timer for breads , cakes , etc. so I can bring that wind up timer to where I am sitting in the living room to watch it since I cannot hear it. ( deaf)
