“It can be challenging to tell what is going on inside food as it cooks,” says Sara Bradley, chef/owner of Freight House in Paducah, KY. “That’s why I love my cake tester; the metal skewer tells me what’s happening inside what I’m cooking. I rarely use it on cake, but almost exclusively on meat, vegetables, and other savory items. It’s so sensitive that when I pierce something, I can tell how soft or firm it is, and when I remove it, by touching the metal, I can feel its internal temperature, too.”
