The ChefAlarm professional oven thermometer has been Rated #1 by a leading Cook's Magazine. Designed for commercial use, ChefAlarm delivers features not found in "houseware" cooking alarms. Continuous Min/Max display tells you how hot (or cold) your food got when you weren't looking. A "High Alarm" sounds when your food reaches your setting, and a first-of-its-kind "Low Alarm" is perfect for making yogurt and other cold dishes. Adjustable alarm volume can be heard in a noisy restaurant kitchen.
ChefAlarm is designed to track temperatures over an extended period of time with moderate-heat cooking methods such as smoking, oven-roasting, deep-frying, homebrewing, and Sous Vide and to be used while grilling. ChefAlarm is not meant to be used in place of a digital instant-read thermometer, such as a Thermapen MK4 or a ThermoPop, or used with broiling.
The main temperature digits are big and easy-to-see from a distance. Touch the backlight button to read the display in the dark. New from the factory, ChefAlarm reads within ±2°F so you should never need a calibration adjustment but the CAL feature can be used for fine-tuning your accuracy to better than ±1°F. Fold ChefAlarm flat and use the magnetic back on a metal surface or tilt the display up and use it on a counter. Only ThermoWorks offers the new Pro-Series Temperature Probes. Built for robust commercial use, they are more accurate, faster and more moisture-resistant than any other alarm probes. ChefAlarm comes with one Pro-Series High Temp Cooking Probe that measures to 572°F with a cable that withstands 700°F short term exposure. Coupled with a molded transition to the SS tube, this probe survives commercial cooking use longer than consumer probes. Replacements are still affordable. Every kitchen should have at least one ChefAlarm.

How to use your Pot Clip
Exclusive to Signals, DOT, ChefAlarm, Smoke, and Smoke X. Pro-Series temperature probes are built to last in commercial kitchens. The included Pro-Series High Temp Cooking Probe measures to 572°F with a cable max temp to 700°F for short term exposure. This is the highest rated probe of its class. Probes store away in the included padded case for storage. Pro-Series probes do not operate with other products.
ChefAlarm’s info-packed display continuously shows the highest and lowest temperatures reached since you turned it on (or reset the memory). Extremely useful for at-a-glance reminders of your starting temperature. Use it to track how high your food got after an alarm. For example, during “resting”, see what temperature your meat reached from carry-over heat. Or when outdoor grilling in cold weather, meat often drops in temperature when it is turned. ChefAlarm remembers how hot it actually got, even when the Current Temp shows a lower reading. This one feature gives you crucial information to improve your culinary results!
Both High and Low Alarms
Other probe-style alarms only give you a high alarm, rendering them useless for yogurt making, desserts, or any chilled techniques. ChefAlarm alerts you when something has reached the low temperature you’ve set, as well as the high temperature. Several commercial food chains use ChefAlarm to monitor holding temperatures so food in a prep or buffet line is kept at optimum serving temperatures for best quality and food safety.
Not rocket science, but very handy. Set ChefAlarm to alarm when time is up. It counts elapsed time after the alarm sounds. Or, use it to time an event, just as you would a stop-watch. Settable in increments of minutes and hours.
This is the only cooking alarm on the market that allows a calibration adjustment. New from the factory, your ChefAlarm will read within ±2°F even after changing probes (up to 248°F). So, in most cases, you should never really need to use the CAL feature. However, you can fine-tune the calibration for accuracy better than ±1°F with a specific probe. The CAL function allows adjustment of the reading at a single temperature. The readings will then be “offset” by the adjusted amount across the whole range of the thermometer. This “fine tuning” makes ChefAlarm the ideal tool for cooking sugars where knowing transition temperatures requires precision to one degree.
What is an IP Rating?
An IP rating, also known as "International Protection" or "Ingress Protection" rating, is a value assigned to a product that determines its susceptibility to ingress from solids and liquids. The first numeric digit relates to the level of protection against solid objects, and the second numeric digit indicates the level of protection against liquid ingress. Click for a table of IP Rating values.
IP65 - No ingress of dust (6); Protection from water ingress: Low pressure jets of water (5).
