Instant Read vs. Leave in Thermometer

wstdonwiteout | May 22, 2012 04:04 PM

I looked over some of the threads on thermometers and was unable to find anything specifically related to this question so I thought I would start a new one.

I recently purchased a decent leave in thermometer and i'm pretty pleased with it.


I just wanted to know if it is really necessary for me to have an instant read thermometer as well, or if I can get away with using the leave in thermometer for both purposes. Other then the fact that a leave in thermometer has a probe that extends away from the main unit are there any technical or functional differences between the way these measure temperatures?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
