The All-Clad Oven Probe, Warrior Cooking Thermometer/ Timer and Taylor Gourmet Digital Cooking Thermometer with Probe and Timer are good thermometers to use in cooking, according to Good Housekeeping. Other highly rated thermometers include the Oxo Good Grips Digital Instant Read Thermometer and the CDN-Dual Sensing Probe.
The All-Clad Oven Probe is a stainless steel thermometer with a large digital display. The main unit is a small countertop device connected to a probe that remains in the food during cooking. The thin wire connecting the probe to the display does not interfere with the oven door seal.
The CDN-Dual Sensing Probe is a versatile thermometer and cooking timer that also serves as an oven temperature gauge. This device also displays the difference between the desired and actual oven temperature.
