Thermometers & Timers

Timers, Thermometers & Scales

It could be said that what separates good chefs from truly great ones is mastery of temperature and cooking times. Professional chefs and talented home cooks know that if you want a perfectly cooked roast that is sumptuously browned on the outside and yet still juicy and tender on the inside, guesswork isn’t enough. Williams-Sonoma provides the highest-quality thermometers, precision scales and helpful timers – all used by the pros – to ensure that your meal is elegant, amazingly delicious, and flawlessly cooked every time. For exquisite roasts, a proper roasting pan also contributes greatly to cooking quality. When searing in a pan, monitoring the oil temperature is key. If you put meats into oil that isn’t hot enough, you won’t get the sear you need and precious juices will be lost. Our Williams-Sonoma Infrared Thermometer eliminates the guesswork by allowing you to instantly read your recipient’s surface temperature. For measuring food temperature – a whole turkey, rotisserie chicken or a roast, for example – the All-Clad Instant Read Digital Thermometer is accurate, dependable and easy-to-read.

When cooking, and especially when baking, ingredients need to be measured very precisely to ensure optimum results. No one wants to see their beautiful chocolate cake deflate because of too much or too little of one of the ingredients. Our OXO Food Scale – 11lb. Capacity is matchlessly precise and contains a host of features to make weighing easier, such as additive measuring and more. This extremely sensitive scale measures in increments of 1/8 ounce or 1 gram, with a maximum capacity of 11 pounds or 5 kilograms. Having sufficient mixing bowls is a big help as well. And for decorating your finished baked goods, make sure to use the finest pastry tools.
