3.0 out of 5 stars Mastrad Meat and Jam Thermo Sensor, 31 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Mastrad Roasting Thermo-Sensor (Kitchen & Home)
I bought this gadget primarily for jam making. What the description doesn't tell you - and is quite important - is that it WILL NOT WORK on an induction hob. The packaging, however, does tell you this. I ordered it and couldn't stop the alarm constantly going off every few seconds when it was placed in the pan. There is nothing in the manual to tell you what this problem is, but on checking the packaging it clearly states that it is not suitable for use on induction hobs. Would have been handy information to have read BEFORE I bought it. Amazon - you should make this point clearer in the item description.

I have an induction hob too and this was just the information I found useful in helping me decide which to buy. Thank you.

Induction hob's work by instantly heating any metal object, so your probe is being heated, not the food stuff its in. For example, I would imagine if you were to hold a spoon in the food while cooking it would instantly heat up and probably burn you.

The link above talks more about induction hobs and digital thermometers.
Thanks for your review mrs best, you saved me lots of money but have given me a worry whether glass tube/stainless steel older analogue thermometers might get affected because of the stainless steel lol.

Hmmm - that blog was very interesting. Seems none of us are sure about these induction things. Induction hobs are fantastic to cook with - but as for making jam? I'm back to 'sort-of-timing' and the cold saucer test every 5 minutes! Thanks for bothering to contact me. Now, I wonder where I put that digital thermometer! I suspect eBay may be my next step! Regards, Christine
