What is the first sign of summer for you? For us at Salter, it is without a doubt the smell of a barbecue in the air on a warm summer’s day. The British public are guaranteed to fully utilise the season, indulging in delicious summer food and drinks, enjoyed the way they should be. Salter have a variety of kitchen appliances and accessories to help you master alfresco grilling with ease and of course, safety. So, we have thrown together a few ideas to help you prep for an outdoor summer gathering spent with friends and family, laughing, eating and drinking until the sun goes down.
As we all know, one of the most vital factors involved in cooking raw meat is ensuring the temperature is correct. It is particularly important to ensure that all dangerous bacteria is removed and the meat reaches the optimal temperature for consumption. BBQ fanatics advise that the best way to check for doneness is with a food thermometer. The Heston Blumenthal Precision Digital Meat Thermometer is the perfect accessory designed to provide accurate readings 5x faster than a standard kitchen thermometer. Quick and easy to use, this digital thermometer has a response time of 5 seconds, with readings down to 0.1 degrees Celsius. You can measure temperatures ranging from -45 to 200 degrees Celsius, ensuring accurate temperature readings for a variety of recipes. Whether you’re cooking on the BBQ or in the oven, simply push the probe into the meat and ensure it is cooking at the correct temperature. Once the BBQ season draws to an end, this versatile gadget also allows you to achieve scrumptious treats with ease when cooking moves indoors. Whether it’s tempering chocolate or making confectionary, you can simply slot the thermometer into the clip on the probe case when using over a hot pan.
Timing is everything when it comes to grilling up the perfect barbeque. It can prove to be a difficult task juggling different meats and ensuring everything is cooked to a safe internal temperature. To make the experience a little less chaotic, the Heston Blumenthal Precision Kitchen BBQ Indoor/Outdoor Timer is designed to enhance the quality of your food by allowing you to keep a closer eye on your meat. This unique timer features a temperature check reminder, prompting you to use your meat thermometer to ensure meat is cooked to perfection. Multi-tasking has never been easier with the timer’s unique turn reminder, making sure your burgers are regularly flipped and beautifully cooked for a flavour packed end result. Forget about the unpredictability of British weather, as this water-resistant timer is coated in durable silicone for outdoor use. No need to struggle when checking your cooking times too, as the Large LED display makes it perfectly simple to stay on track of things.
