Induction Cooktops and Digital Electronic Thermometers
We’ve discovered that some models of induction cooktops can create temporary interference with digital electronic thermometers when they are placed near the range while the cooktop is powered on. The good news is that the interference shouldn’t cause any permanent damage to your device or your cooktop.
Here are some things you can try to get a reading:
- Try to insulate the pot clip and probe to reduce any interference.
- Or, briefly turn off the induction cooktop during the reading.
- Or, remove the food from the cooktop to take a quick reading away from the magnetic field.
The amount of interference you experience and the solution that works best will depend on the model of cooktop you use.
