How do I use my Ooni Infrared Thermometer?

To use your Ooni Infrared Thermometer, follow the steps below:

Step 1. Insert the batteries

  • Place your finger on the groove in line with the trigger.
  • Pull the section forward - this may take some force.
  • Insert two AAA batteries.
  • Close the section until it ‘clicks’ back into place. 

Step 2. Ensure the lens is clear from any dust or debris

  • If there is any debris, gently blow away or wipe down with a moist cotton cloth.

Step 3. Hold your infrared thermometer 6 inches / 15 centimeters away from the mouth of your oven

  • If you are too far away, the reading will not be accurate.

Step 4. Press and hold the trigger to take a reading of the center of your baking stone

Step 5. Release the trigger

Step 6. When your infrared thermometer reads your desired temperature, launch your pizza

  • The latest reading will remain on screen for 20 seconds before automatically turning off.
  • For a classic Neapolitan-style pizza, your thermometer should read 750ºF / 400ºC or higher.

Note: You can set your preferred unit of measurement and choose whether you want the laser to be visible or not by pressing the buttons underneath the screen:

1. Change unit of measurement to ºC

2. Toggle laser off and on

3. Change unit of measurement to ºF
