For the Consumer


Preparing food safely and deliciously is important.

Rely on Volk's Pop Up® Disposable Cooking Thermometer and Cook'd Right Sensor!

As a consumer, you may have come across Volk’s Pop Up® Disposable Cooking Thermometer when you purchased a turkey or roast.

Does it really work? YES!

The Pop Up® is the most reliable temperature indicating device of its kind in the world. The key to how the Pop Up® works is inside. It uses patented organic firing mediums (inside the white “stem” of the device) that accurately indicates temperature within + or - 2°F.  This special technology tells the device exactly when to pop up, thus eliminating guesswork and assuring a perfectly cooked meal each and every time. Whether cooking whole poultry, fish, beef or pork roasts, the Pop Up® Timer is the perfect tool for cooking meat to the proper temperature.

Better Results

Did you know that opening the oven frequently to check the temperature of your dish can increase cook time? With the Pop Up®, just a quick peek and you can tell when your food is ready! Aside from having to check meats multiple times with traditional meat thermometers, they can fail if they aren't cared for properly, and digital thermometers can be expensive. The Pop Up® is a handy meat thermometer that comes with the product that you purchase, which makes preparing a great meal hassle free.

Not Just for Turkey, But Perfect for Roasts

While the Pop Up® Disposable Cooking Thermometer works perfectly for whole poultry, such as turkey, the Pop Up® Timer also works well for roasts. Cooking beef roasts or pork roasts to the proper internal temperature is simple with the Pop Up®!

How the Pop Up® is made

An excellent explanation of how the Pop Up® is made and functions was featured in the Food Network's episode of Unwrapped. You can get a behind the scenes look at how these are made and why they are such great temperature indicating tools. Check it out!

Cooking smaller cuts of meats with the Cook'd Right Sensor

If you are preparing smaller cuts of meat, poultry or seafood, another handy temperature indicating device called the Cook'd Right Sensor might be what you need. Cook'd Right Sensors are very easy to use. Simply insert it into the thickest portion of the meat and wait 5-10 seconds. A color change in the tip of the sensors means the product is done.
