Take the guesswork out of the aging process with this refrigerator thermostat. Easily installed on the outside of your cheese refrigerator, this handy thermostat will give you an accurate reading of the aging temperature without having to open the door. This is a sturdy, compact thermostat with a visible scale and an adjustable set point knob, with a temperature range of 30-80ºF.
This controller can also be used in a chest or upright freezer.
It can take up to a week for the thermostat and fridge to stabilize at the set temperature. Also note, the room temperature needs to be warmer than your set temperature since this only works on cooling and not warming. A fridge thermostat set to 52ºF will not function in an exterior temperature below 52ºF
- Plug the refrigerator cord into the thermostat, then plug thermostat into an outlet.
- Place the probe in the refrigerator and set the refrigerator at the lowest temperature.
- Set your desired temperature on the thermostat.
Note: Place the probe in a jar of water, inside the fridge, to prevent the fridge cycling excessively when opening and closing the door.
