Using infrared temperature gun

Rella | Feb 15, 201108:17 AM

Since I use an infrared temperature gun to see how hot my pans are before I add food, I always wonder what the temperature of the pan should be for the admonitions or suggestions:

"use medium heat" - I work toward a heated pan of 275

"use medium-high heat" - I usually work for a heated pan of 325

"Use high heat" - I usually work toward a heated pan of 350

Would I be offbase to use these parameters?

P.S. Usually I let my pans heat up fairly slowly.
