Degrees of doneness and most suitable meat
The pre-programmed core area temperatures of the SteakChamp can be used for beef, game or salmon steaks, for breast of duck or whole (large) fish.
We fixed the core temperatures with an international team of experts (star chefs, steakhouse chefs, steak and meat experts from the USA and Europe).
Use our recommendations as a reference or determine your own favorite degree of doneness for your steak. The SteakChamp reaches the temperatures in the table at the end of the resting phase, when the double flashing signal stops.
Please note: Meat is a natural product and the optimum cooking result (with the same core temperature) may vary according to the amount of fat, breed, age, feeding and meat hanging process.
SteakChamp switches off automatically:
- After use: approx. 5 minutes after the cooking process
- When not in use: after approx. 30 minutes without temperature increase
Cooking several steaks at the same time
You have friends round for a meal and want to cook several steaks of similar thickness?
One SteakChamp is all you need as a reference because the steaks reach their degree of doneness at the same time.
The SteakChamp functions with advanced and extremely energy-saving LED technology and therefore has very low electricity consumption when used around 1,000 times. The battery cannot be replaced.
Six minutes or 30?* How long your steak will take depends on many factors, for to prepare a perfect steak is NOT ALWAYS SIMPLE, even for pros.
The following (selected) factors influence the cooking time for the perfect steak, some of them considerably:
* A 1-inch steak to be cooked “rare” might be ready after 6 minutes on high heat, while a 2-inch bone-in steak might take 30 minutes to become medium on medium or low heat.
