The new ThermaLite 2 thermometer, designed for routine day-to-day food and catering applications, indicates temperature over the range of -39.9C to 149.9°C with a ±0.5°C accuracy guaranteed for the life of the instrument, said the firm.

Each thermometer incorporates a CalCheck 0°C function, which is activated by pressing the on/off and hold buttons simultaneously at the time of switching on. This ensures the instrument always gives a correct reading.

The ThermaLite 2 weighs 45g and is housed in a high-impact ABS case. It comes in six colours and costs £25.
