Hex-Handle Standard Penetration Probe, 5-inch (K-160)

SKU: PRB-K-160

This 5" general purpose probe is popular in the food industries and is a little more rugged than the Fast Response Probe. The 1/8" diameter shaft is swaged to a smaller diameter and given a very sharp tip for easy penetration in most semi-solids. Great for reaching over hot grills, into large ovens, rotisseries or deep pots; also suitable for liquids and air temperatures. It's very durable probe resists bending and breaking (for frozen foods consider heavier duty probes) and is recommended for hard daily use. Fairly quick response time takes only about 7 seconds to a complete reading. Includes coiled cable. Great for testing meats in rotisseries, ovens or barbecue applications.
