Laser thermometer measures temperature instantly

Baltimore Sun

Take the guesswork out of knowing when your pan has reached the proper temperature to sear a steak or simmer a sauce.

BonJour, purveyor of gourmet kitchen supplies, has introduced a culinary laser thermometer that instantly measures the temperature of cookware.

The thermometer is shaped like a supermarket scanner and uses infrared technology to measure cookware surface temperatures. A chart on the side tells the ideal range of cooking temperatures for eight frequently used methods, including warm, simmer, fry, sauté and sear.

The tool is available at Williams-Sonoma stores for a suggested retail price of $89.99.
