Verbal updates from the Maverick Voice Alert Anticipation Probe Digital Thermometer will keep you on your toes when cooking a wide variety of foods. With a variety of featured functions, you can avoid overdone meats, dried-out poultry and too-crisp tenderloins. Preset reminders announce time for basting, turning and when to remove items from the oven. You can also override the voice feature, which is available in both English and French, for beeping alerts. Pre-programmed temperature functions, based on USDA recommendations, offer precise, up-to-the-minute readouts for veal, pork, poultry and beef on a large digital display that sits conveniently on counters. Additional settings also let you program for standard or specialty recipes. A long stainless steel probe slides into the deepest part of large or small cuts and whole hens or tenderloins and then connects to the transmission cable that flexes neatly to slide through any oven door. Leave worries about cooking meat to the Maverick Voice Alert Anticipation Probe Digital Thermometer while you take care of preparing side dishes and desserts.
