E. coli is nothing to joke about. And with rising concerns over meat safety, it's important to make sure you are cooking it at the right temperatures. The Oregon Scientific Wireless Talking Thermometer ($38) takes all the guesswork out for you. Proper meat temps for eight different proteins are already programmed into the thermometer. And best of all, you can set it and forget it. Just insert the remote wireless probe into the meat. When it's ready, you'll be alerted from the main unit.
