Troubleshoot & FAQ

Unit will not power on
If the unit is brand new, please check the batteries for any plastic wrapping, and remove. If you have had the unit for a good period of time, try replacing the battery. If the issue persists, please contact Escali about the product 2 year warranty.

How to switch from Celsius to Fahrenheit
Press and hold the 'S/T' key until the thermometer beeps to confirm the change.

How far to stick the probe into the meat
The most sensitive spot of the probe is about 3/4" of the tip, where you will receive a more accurate and faster reading. While measuring, imagine the tip to be as close to the center of the meat as possible. If the meat has a bone, measure to the center in between the skin and bone, since the bone will tend to get hot.

How to set the alert temp

  1. Press and hold the 'S/S' key until alert temp flashes.
  2. Use the 'M/M' and 'S/T' keys to increase or decrease alert temp setting.
  3. Press 'S/S' to confirm.
