Polder was first. Polder remote thermometers were the first remote sensing cooking thermometers on the market. Established in 1976, the Polder company offers a wide variety of housewares to the consumer market.
The Original Polder 362-90 Remote Thermometer
This basic remote cooking thermometer includes a stainless steel probe that attaches to a remote display unit. The temperature range of this Polder thermometer is 32 to 392 degrees Fahrenheit. It also has a built in timer that can be used simultaneously with the temperature alarm.
The display unit folds for easy storage. The handy memory saves frequently used settings, and there is even a useful 5 minute alarm.
If you want to know the internal temperature of your cooking food AND the temperature of the oven or smoker, the Polder 894-90 dual sensor thermometer is what you need. The probe has one sensor built into the tip that senses the internal meat temperature, plus another sensor at the handle that senses the temperature of the air next to the food.
The temperature range of this model is 32 to 572 degrees, and it includes a 10 hour (minus one second) timer. There is a built in USDA cooking chart with recommended temperatures and times for a wide variety of foods. The large LCD readout displays the internal temperature of the meat and the oven or smoker temperature simultaneously.
Replacement probes are available.
One of the handiest of the Polder remote thermometers is the pre-programmed Polder 307 remote thermometer. This one is programmed with the perfect temperature settings for beef, poultry, pork, lamb and veal. Choose the meat type and the level of doneness (rare, medium, or well) and you're good to go.
There is a pre-alarm that chimes in 5 minutes before the done alarm so you have time to get the serving platter ready to go. There's also a power switch to save your battery, and an Alert on-off switch for silent operation if you like.
Polder remote thermometers take the temperature worry out of cooking foods. The convenience of "at a glance" temperature monitoring makes cooking a pleasure.
