Your Thermapen doesn't test doneness - it tests temperature very accurately (see page 7 of the Thermapen Guidebook).
The Thermapen doesn't lock in on a reading. It is accurate enough to show the ever-changing temperature of your food while it cooks (see page 7 of the Thermapen Guidebook).
Your Thermapen measures temperature at the tip of its probe (see page 9 of the Thermapen Guidebook). Penetrate your food with the probe tip where you want to measure - usually the centre of the thickest part of your food (see page 12 of the Thermapen Guidebook).
Never leave your Thermapen in an oven while cooking (see page 20 of the Thermapen Guidebook).
In general, be sure to thaw meats thoroughly before cooking (see page 10 of the Thermapen Guidebook).
Remember that the temperature of meat normally continues to rise a little after you remove it from the oven or grill (see page 13 of the Thermapen Guidebook).
Don't test the accuracy of a thermometer in food. Use a properly made ice bath (see page 17 of the Thermapen Guidebook).
Be sure to clean your Thermapen probe after contact with uncooked or undercooked meat (see page 19 of the Thermapen Guidebook).
Wipe your Thermapen regularly. The SuperFast Thermapen should not be submerged. The Thermapen Mk4 can survive short-term submersion. Do not put it in the dishwasher (see page 19 of the Thermapen Guidebook).
