The use of an infrared thermometer is for convenience, it allows you to measure temperature from some distance you don’t need to get up from your comfy bed to check the temperature you can just sit and check it from there only. Like everything in this world has myth and facts the infrared thermometer too has some for instance –

• It allows you to measure internal temperature whereas it is not made for measuring the internal temperature it can only measure the external temperature if you are grilling and you want to check the temperature you would be able to check the temperature of the surface which is external and not internal.

• The 2nd myth is about the equal surface people think that all the surfaces are created equally but that not true the truth is that all the surfaces are actually not created equally it basically depends on what you are pointing your gun at once you get done with your deeds your gun send variations, variations which are called emissivity now you would be thinking what emissivity is so let me tell you emissivity is the ability of the material to emit energy (infrared energy).The chapter of myths and facts closes here.

We need it because it basically ensures safety; it tells you beforehand if it’s okay to pick that food item up or not. it helps you cook your delicious food perfectly, its fast in telling the temperature so there are fewer chances that you would spoil your food and it’s very handy. Once we eat the food we and some of it gets left we leave it outside only at room temperature and you know what happens next? it basically causes bacteria to grow so infrared thermometer helps you to save that leftover food which you wish to eat later on.
