Selecting the right food thermometer or catering thermometer is paramount in order to achieve maximum accuracy and repeatability of temperature.

The selection criteria for a digital food thermometer should include:
measurement range
resolution of the reading 1°C, 0.1°C or 0.01°C
desired accuracy
response time

ETI offers a range of food thermometers, catering thermometers, oven thermometers and accessories that are ideal for busy restaurants, cafes, bars etc. where food safety is essential.

fridge & freezer temperatures
Keeping fridges and freezers at the correct temperature is critical to ensure good food safety during storage.

Food should be stored in a fridge between 1°C and 5°C to allow a margin of error below the legal standard of 8°C

Food stored in a freezer should be regularly rotated and stored at -18°C as bacteria will not grow at these temperatures.

safe food temperatures
To prevent food poisoning, it is essential to kill bacteria. Most bacteria are killed quickly at between 72 to 100°C. The danger zone is between 5°C and 63°C where bacteria will grow rapidly and perishable foods in the danger zone for more than two hours.

Generally speaking safe food temperatures can be summarised as follows:

  • 100°C or boiling point bacteria will be destroyed
  • 83°C the internal temperature of reheated food should reach
  • 75 to 80°C poultry and meat are safest between these internal temperatures
  • 63°C bacteria is gradually killed above this temperature
  • 37°C ideal temperature for bacteria to grow
  • 2 to 4°C stored food is safe at 4 °C for short periods of time but it's better stored at 2°C
  • -18°C at deep freeze temperature bacteria won't grow but may not die either
