Troubleshooting & FAQ
Three dashes are appearing on display
This is normal for the start up process. Shortly after, the thermometer will display close to room temperature. If the three dashes remain on the display for a long period of time, try to restart the thermometer. If the issue persists, the probe may be having trouble sensing temperature.
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.
