About Dial Thermometers
Dial thermometers are analog instruments designed for thermal measurement and typically consist of a metal probe attached to a dial read-out. They can be used in homes, businesses and industry, depending on the application. Consumers typically use them as pocket thermometers for measuring food temperature (meats and baked goods) for food safety, and businesses use them in food & beverage quality control, labs, asphalt/concrete testing, heating and refrigeration, and in water, soil & compost testing.
