All ovens don’t look and act alike. Beneath those shiny exteriors, there are technological differences that will affect your cooking pleasure. Not all ovens have a probe, and they can’t all be turned off the same way.
Thermador ovens have probes. This is to ensure that whichever Thermador oven design you choose, you gain fantastic cooking abilities.
Find the probe port
Thermador has invested years of research in their ovens, which have been designed to ensure that cooks can make an impression with all their baking and cooking.
And the probe? How does it contribute to good cooking? When you use the probe thermometer, it helps you make sure that your meat has reached the proper internal temperature.
This is important if you appreciate succulent meat. You can also be sure that bacteria in your meat has been killed. This happens when you cook meat at temperatures of 165 degrees or more.
To turn off the probe on an oven, you would first look for the probe port. This is usually close to the control panel. Then you can unplug the probe from the port. You can also turn off the oven’s function that uses the probe.
Temperature readings from three points
A Thermador wall oven will either have a single-point or multi-point meat probe. The multi-point probe feature allows you to take temperature readings from not one but three points.
Also, once the oven reaches a certain internal temperature, it switches off. This ensures you never have dried-out food.
This probe of the Thermador oven is such an important part as it’s actually a guide for your cooking. Most other ovens only use a single-point probe, so this is something really special with Thermador, having a 3-point probe.
Make sure your meat is defrosted before using the probe
You don’t want to damage the probe, so it’s wise to ensure that your meat is defrosted before you insert the probe. You can insert it until the tip rests in the middle of the meatiest part of the meat.
Make sure the probe doesn’t touch any bones in the meat. The probe must also not touch the cooking dish your meat is in or any parts of the oven, as this impacts the accuracy of the probe.
Once you’re sure your probe has been inserted properly, it’s time to close the oven door, select the cooking mode you want, and then press ‘enter’.
Turn off the probe once your meat is cooked
Operating the temperature probe is easy. Of course, it must be turned on to be used. It’s a specialized thermometer that allows you to accurately measure the internal temperature of your food as it cooks.
Once the probe is turned on and inserted into the food, the oven automatically adjusts the cooking time and temperature.
It is best to turn off the Thermador oven probe once your meat is cooked. The oven will automatically beep to let you know that the meat is done.
It is wise to manually turn off the oven probe at this time. Turning it off will also help preserve the life of the probe and prevent any damage.
We’re going to take a look at how to turn off the probe on the Thermador oven. To turn off the probe, it’s simply a matter of removing it from the food and then placing it in its holder. This is usually found near the control panel of the oven.
How To Turn Off Probe On Thermador Oven
We look at 6 steps you can use to turn the probe off.
- Press the ‘Probe’ button on the oven control panel. The location of the oven control panel varies according to the kind of Thermador oven you have. Most of the time, you can find it on the front of the oven, either above or below the oven door.
- Use the ‘+’ and ‘-’ buttons to find ‘Probe Temp’, and then press ‘Enter’.
- Once again use either the ‘+’ and ‘-’ buttons or arrow buttons, depending on the oven, to find ‘Off’, and then press ‘Enter’ again.
- On the display screen, you will see the word off.
- To remove the probe, switch off the oven and allow it to cool. Gently pull the probe out of the food and remove clips that are possibly holding it in place.
- Unplug the probe cable and clean the probe with a soft, damp cloth. It’s always better to remove the probe to ensure that you can continue to get accurate temperature readings from it.
The probe is turned off, and you can remove it from the oven. Bear in mind that you need to wait until the oven has completely cooled down before removing the probe.
Of course, if your Thermador oven doesn’t turn off, there could be several reasons:
- A faulty thermostat
- A faulty control panel
- Problems with the power supply. If there is a problem with the power supply, it’s quite likely your oven won’t turn off.
Whatever the reason, have your Thermador inspected by a qualified technician.
For specific instructions on anything related to your Thermador oven, always check out your owner’s manual. Also, if you do have trouble turning off the probe, you can also contact Thermador’s customer support for assistance.
