"The Traceable® 2Second-Temp™ NSF Food Certified Thermometer will ensure that harmful food bacteria are destroyed during the cooking process by monitoring the temperature. This is the most effective method to prevent any foodborne illness, whether you are a professional chef in a restaurant or cooking at home."
