This post goes in the "notes to self" category. We have a Williams-Sonoma Cooking Probe Digital Thermometer - and lost the manual eons ago. This thermometer was apparently actually made by Polder and private labelled to Williams-Sonoma.
Anyway, it's the one with the 3 foot long cord to a probe that goes in the oven and into the meat. The problem I have with it is the somewhat arcane user interface it has for setting a different alarm temperature than the various defaults it comes pre-programmed with for the various types of meat. So, here's how you do it!
Using the Meat button, scroll to the UI page. Hold down the Memory button until the Alert temperature starts blinking. Then, using the up/down (+/-) keys, set the temperature you want for the alert. Hit the Memory button again to store the new value, turn on the Alert switch, and you're now set.
Happy cooking! ;-)
