Using the INKBIRD app
The app is where things get fun. Once your device has been paired just click into it and you’ll see the base homescreen.
Here it will show the temperature of the probe currently, note that the probe needs to be out of the case.
On the bottom of the screen you will have 3 options. a timer on the left, cooking history in the middle and the type of food you want to cook on the right.
We’ll go with the type of food you want to cook in this case.
From here you can select your meat, in our case we went with a burger, and from there can choose your outcome, rare, medium, well done, etc.
There are of course many more other options you can go with, so jump on into the app and pick your favorite meat for your next meal. With this temperature probe you’ll be able to cook it to perfection every time since you will always know what the internal temperature of the meat is.
