Klein Tools in the Kitchen

File this one under "Random places I've seen a Klein product in use."

Recently someone sent me an article from a Las Vegas weekly magazine, Vegas Seven, titled "Tech in the Kitchen." As soon as I opened the link, I was intrigued…

A giant picture of chocolate with the Klein Tools IR1000 Infrared Thermometer poised above it! It turns out a pastry chef at a French-American restaurant on the Las Vegas Strip uses it when tempering chocolate!

Not exactly it's intended use. But our Director of Engineering for Electrical (who just happens to own a chocolate shop) says our IR gun can be used in that manner. Although he says you should probably leave that job to the professionals (pastry chefs that is…not electricians).
