Looking for probe insulating materials?
edited November -1
Does anyone have a source for tubular insulating materials that i can insulate my probe wires with to extend their life ? I have noticed a few people on the forum using it and it's got to be better than "tin foil"! :huh:
Just keep them under 400+/- and they should last quite a while. Mine are on 3 years without any problems. A 375º Turkey cook is as hot as mine ever get. Get a thermapen for all the hot stuff
years ago I thought the same thing as you and I purchased much-o feet of Cotronics tubing and made myself brass ferrules to keep it from unraveling.
I used one probe side by side with a foil covered one and one night my temp got away from me (over 396° does it) and they both got fried!
I never bothered with the tubing again and just foil mine. There are those here who will argue that foiling does nothing, but what it does for me is my cables stay flexible and don't get brittle from a build up of grease, smoke and dirt embedded in that fine metal mesh cable sleeve.
