Are you finding that your oven is not cooking as evenly as it used to? Maybe it’s not cleaning as well as it should be, or maybe the readings on your oven thermometer are off. In this article, we’ll show you how to clean an oven thermometer properly so you can get accurate readings again.
What is a Thermometer?
A thermometer is a device used to measure the temperature of an object. They come in different shapes and sizes, and can be made out of a variety of materials including metal, glass, plastic, and even paper.
The most common type of thermometer is called a probe thermometer. This type of thermometer is inserted into the object you are trying to measure, and its digital read-out displays the temperature. There are also mercury-in-glass thermometers which use a mercury liquid core to measure temperature.
To clean a thermometer, you first need to remove any debris that may be on the surface. You can do this by wiping it off with a cloth or paper towel. You can also try using a mild soap and water mixture if dirt or dust is stubbornly sticking to the thermometer. Be sure to thoroughly rinse it off before placing it back into its rightful spot.
