For your guidance, the temperature chart at the

back of this booklet shows meat temperature

recommendations from both Heston and from the

USDA*. Heston’s temperatures are often slighter

lower and are specifically developed to give the

best possible taste and texture result for each

food type. However, it is important to understand

that if you choose to use temperatures lower than

the USDA guidelines, there may be a greater health

risk involved; particularly when cooking meat,

poultry & fish. Use of fresh ingredients and safe

food handling is very important. The manufacturer

accepts no responsibility or liability for food borne

illnesses which may occur from food prepared

using this product or temperature charts.

Once meat/poultry has reached its final

temperature, always rest for a minimum of

succulent meat that is easier to carve, Heston

recommends resting:

– Small cuts (eg: steaks, breasts & burgers) for

5 minutes.

– Larger cuts (eg: roast chicken & other roasting

joints) for 30 – 45 minutes.
