Digital Pocket Thermometers, also known as Instant Read Thermometers, are used to Measure the Internal Temperature of foods which is most accurate method of testing the final Level of Doneness of food. 

Varieties

Standard Ovenproof Thermometers can remain in foods as they cook.

Instant Read Thermometers are inserted at any time, and read as soon as the needle stops moving.  

Culinary Uses

Before use, make sure that your Digital Thermometer is clean and sanitary. 

To use a Digital Instant Read Thermometer, the stem is inserted into the food, producing an instant temperature readout.

Instant-read thermometers are not ovenproof and cannot be left in food during cooking. They are used instead to test temperatures periodically towards the end of anticipated cooking times.
