Instant Read Thermometer

The Z Grills Instant Read Digital Thermometer is great for quickly checking the internal temperature of meat or even a loaf of bread. The fine probe tip provides an accurate reading in only 3-4 seconds and is a must have tool in your kitchen!

The probe is also perfect for checking if slow cooked meat is “probing like soft butter” before calling it DONE!

How to Use

Turning On/Off

Unfold the probe to turn on. Close to turn off.

Celcius & Farenheit

Switch between ºC and ºF by pressing the ºC/ºF button.

The current temperature setting will be saved even after turning the thermometer off.

Backlit Display

Press the backlit button to get a 5 seconds blue glow.

Measuring Food Temperature

Push the probe in at least deep enough to submerge the fine tip into the food. The temperature is just in the tip of the probe, not along the shaft.

Wait until the temperature reading stabilises, which takes 3-4 seconds.

Hold/MaxMin Function

While taking a temperature reading, press the HOLD/MAX/MIN button once to maintain the current reading on the display. Press again to return to normal reading display.

Press and hold the HOLD/MAX/MIN button for 4 seconds to display the maximum temperature reading since the thermometer was turned on. Press again to display the minimum temperature and a third time to return to normal temperature display.

Temperature Calibration

If the temperature reading does not seem accurate it may be calibrated by following these steps:

  • Place the probe in a cup of ice cold water (0ºC)
  • Press and hold the ºC/ºF button for several seconds until the screen flashes and displays CAL.
  • The screen will flash 1ºC or 32ºF
  • Press the ºC/ºF button again to confirm
  • The screen will display PASS and the calibration will be complete


Always clean the tip with detergent and a cloth after use to avoid food contamination.

Do NOT pull hard on the probe when cleaning as it may be damaged.

Do NOT submerge the whole device in water. It is only splash resistance.


Don’t push the probe in so far that the plastic casing contacts the meat as high temperatures can deform the plastic casing.
