Description

Welcome to view our listing of this Vintage Mid Century TAYLOR Instrument Companies Rochester N.Y. Roast Meat No. 5936 Thermometer In Its Original Box!

On the actual thermometer design holder it is white metal face plate with a glass thermometer attached & two metal attached brackets. It reads in dark blue text " Taylor Fresh Pork......185 ...Lamb......180.....Cured Pork Veal Beef Well.......170......Beef Med........160.........Tender Ham.......150..........Beef Rare............140. Also included in the original green box with blue stamped ink text is a metal looped rod meat insert. The thermometer with face plate measures 6-3/4" in height by 1-7/8" in width at the widest part of the metal plate.The metal rod measures 6" in height. This thermometer set is in good condition, although I would not use it to use in cooking due to its age and construction.

On the inside of the box in text it reads " How to Use the Taylor Roast Meat thermometer, No. 5936, Prepare roast for oven as usual, then drive screwer thru thickest part of meat and carefully insert thermometer. The black pointed end should be in center of meat and must not contact bone, gristle or fat. Place the meat in the oven with the thermometer inserted and leave the thermometer there during the cooking process. When the black liquid in the tube reads in the desired stage remove meat and it will be cooked just right. NOTE This thermometer is very sensitive. Read immediately you open oven door as liquid may recede if oven is left open a long time. Do not touch thermometer with damp cloth or place it in cold surface while it is hot. It will fracture the glass. Taylor Instrument Companies Rochester N.Y. Authorities agree that moderate oven temperatures are best to conserve flavor and juices. Use oven at 300 F. to 350 F. A Taylor Oven Thermometer will tell you accurately. A with high oven temperatures as much as from 25% to 30% of your meat is lost by shrinkage, and unpalatable food results. Best roasts are produced by keeping meats uncovered in oven, eliminating all basting and searing."

On the inside top of the underside of the box it reads in text" Time table For Roasting,
Kind of Roast Oven Temperature Internal Temperature Approximate Minutes Per Pound

A roast may be seared for 20-30 minutes at 500 F., if desired; however, using the constant oven temperatures given in the table above will give comparable results and is simpler than the searing method. This table will give you the approximate time needed to properly cook various cuts. However, watch your thermometer for the exact degree of "doneness" you desire. The Taylor Roast Meat Thermometer is approved by the National Live Stock and Meat Board and also by the Good Housekeeping Institute. There is also a Good Housekeeping Seal stamp logo in the box.

On the top of the green box it reads in text " Taylor Roast Meat Thermometer" in blue ink and at the bottom of the top of the box is a round rump roast with steam coming off of it on a plate. On the the green box end it says in blue stamped ink " D-PAT. 93969 PAT. 1984825 1934 Taylor Instrument Comapnies Rochester, N.Y. Printed in U.S.A. On the very back side of this bottom of this box has a white sticker that shows this thermometer was purchased downtown Pittsburgh at a store called "Joseph Horne Co."

This would be a great display thermometer to have in a Mid Century decor or to use in a shadow box decoration!
