|Operating temperature range
Do not leave probes inside smokers at extreme (>350C/660F) temperatures. To avoid damage, do not place in close proximity to flame.
Don't drop them on hard surfaces as this can shatter the internal ceramic sensor. Simply, if your probe suddenly starts reading >500F in ambient air then it's been dropped/hit and internally it's broken.
Maintenance wise, it is suggested to:
- Wipe with damp cloth and/or wet steel wool after use
- Wipe cable every month with steel wool to bring shine back with very little effort!
