What is a "thermocouple"?
Explanation: A thermocouple is a thermometer with a metal probe. The sensing area is on the tip of the probe and the reading is given digitally. This is a common thermometer used to measure the temperature of both thick and thin food. There are several types of thermometers that you should become familiar with before taking the ServSafe manager exam. And then you should become familiar with and practice using the ones that your foodservice operation has chosen.
