Helpful hints from joeeze: Refrigerator-freezer thermometer — be cool


It's a fact: if your refrigerator's temperature isn't ≤ 40°F and your freezer ≤0°F, your food is more prone to going bad and making you sick.

You could look it up.

Drop a few bucks on a thermometer — get two, one apiece for your fridge and freezer — and see if you're running dangerously hot.

The ones pictured above and below, all by Taylor, are for sale at Amazon for between $2 and $10.


Choose your unpoison.

Isn't it impressive that 99% of the people in the U.S., asked to name a refrigerator/freezer/oven thermometer brand, can't go beyond Taylor?

Assuming they got there in the first place.


And yet I don't recall ever seeing an ad for Taylor thermometers.

Very, very effective marketing.

An unsolicited blog post like this is worth a whole lot of ad dollars — and you can't buy it for any amount of money.


Well, not any amount I'm likely to be offered any time soon.

Whoa. I thought the mercury thermometers were extinct. I didn't know where I could find one. But then again, thinking they were extinct, I didn't spend much time hunting.
