Product Description

Product Description

Collaborating with the Michelin star chef, Heston Blumenthal was a case of combining Salter’s precision, excellence and integrity with Heston’s own incredible credentials and creating a range of ten kitchen essentials good enough for any chef. Providing an easy solution to every cook’s dilemma of delivering multiple hot dishes to the table at the same time, the Heston Blumenthal precision by Salter Digital Oven Dual Probe Thermometer can measure the temperature of two dishes at the same time. An ultra-thin piercing tip means that roasts will not lose moisture from large puncture holes, and presentation won’t be compromised. The built-in clock and timer which is programmable with preset temperatures, along with the beeping and flash technology means that consumers will have all their needs met in one handy tool.

    UPDATE (24/12/2013)
    --
    although I can not confirm it myself, I am pretty sure that a newer model than I purchased has removed one of the limitations noted in my original review. Please read the comments thread for more details. In summary, I believe you can now set a custom temperature for the alarm - user Grasshopper has let me know "I have this thermometer and can confirm that the user setting works exactly as needed. You can set a temp between 35 and 140 degrees for each probe individually.". Might have to buy an updated version...

    ORIGINAL REVIEW

    This is a nice piece of kit which does let itself down in a few key areas (see end of review) - you should definitely take these into account before buying the device but, on balance, I still rate it four stars "I like it" and here is why...

    As a manual temperature monitor (i.e. not using the alarms or the timer) it is great.

    For example, I've used the dual probe configuration to monitor the internal temperature of my oven with one probe and the internal temperature of a joint of beef with the other and, in so doing, have been able to hold the oven at 60 degrees Celsius (Fahrenheit is also an option) and then remove the meat when it reaches 55 degrees, the perfect way to handle slow-roasting meat a la Heston which really worked a treat.

    It also comes with a digital timer (which I don't see the point of as I have timers on my cooker, my watch, my mobile etc... and have not used) and a list of pre-set temperature alarms to notify you when a probe hits a certain temperature (which are limited and strangely calibrated - see the end of the review for details).

    In fairness, even the alarm does have some good uses.

    Unlike another reviewer I had no problem using this with an Aga; the wires emerged quite happily out of the Aga roasting oven to the display unit. What I do take issue with are the pre-set temperatures: Beef is certainly not rare at 60C and my recipe book insisted that ham should reach 75 C not 60 to be cooked. With the turkey I used both probes, one in the breast and one in a thigh. Perhaps understandably the breast reached temperature first but I was unable to turn off the buzzer which continued to bleep. It simply would not shut up so I ended up disconnecting the whole thing. The idea is good but refinements are urgently needed.

    The positives: Looks good; solid construction; good idea - two probes that work independently plus a timer facility; Amazon's returns policy and their courteous efficient staff.
    The negatives: Each probe measured a different temperature, even when probing the same thing e.g. a pan of water, as much as 5oC difference; One probe stopped working altogether after a few weeks; The pre-set temperatures are a joke - they don't even follow Heston's own temperatures in his books; There are no user-defined temperatures i.e. you can't set your own temperature e.g. when cooling heated milk for making yogurt.

    I tend not to write negative reviews, but in this case I think Salter and Heston need to re-think the product. It is poor!

    I use a digital oven thermometer with alarm a lot - you push the probe into the food in the oven and it gives a read out of the internal temperature of the food so you can cook your meat to perfection. The alarm can be set to go off when it reaches the correct temperature.
    Natually when my old one packed up I looked at this and thought 'brilliant' - Salter & Heston Blumenthal - should be a great product with 2 probes I can monitor 2 dishes at once.
    It is a well made solid product with a good clear display and a smart metallic finish.
    BUT what I didn't realise was that the temperature alarms cannot be set to the temperature YOU want but are all preset at the factory, which would be fine if they were anywhere near the temperatures I would actually use in cooking - they aren't.
    For example the setting for 'Rare Beef' is 60°C - well I'm sorry Heston but my steak would be medium to well done at 60°C. I cook steak to a max of 50°C for rare and 45°C for a joint of beef which is then covered and rested for at least 30mins.
    So sadly until they change this to allow the temperature alarms to be set to what YOU want it gets the thumbs down from me.

    If you're a fan of low-heat cooking then get one of these.. It takes a bit of getting used to trusting what the temperature gauge tells you but the results are very good. No more overcooked roasts.
    The advantage of this over other competitors is that you can leave the probe in the meat whilst it's cooking - you get a trailing wire out of the oven door but I don't see that as a problem.
    The only reason I have only given 4 stars and not 5 is that this is my second one in 10 months. The elctronic unit itself is fine but I managed to pull the silicone boot off both probes which pulled out the wires and heat sensors - and it doesn't seem possible to buy replacements. In fairness that was probably my fault but just a word of warning.
