Ph Meter, Milwaukee

Post by tobertuzzi » Wed Dec 11, 2013 19:26

Was wondering if anyone has tried the Milwaukee PH meter that sausagemaker.com sells?

http://www.sausagemaker.com/11213milwaukeephmeter.aspx

Its a good price but the sausage probe is worth more than the meter. I wonder if you are careful one could get away with using the probe it comes with.

Reviews anyone?

Thanks

That's a great price! I suspect that it has a plastic, rather than glass probe, but if it works then I would go for it. Has mixed reviews on Amazon, but most negative reviews are by guys who don't understand working with instruments of this nature.

I would also check whether a glass probe is available for this model, because you will need to replace it eventually.

Yeah I think if you are careful it will work fine. There is a meat probe, its $100. Could always replace it with that if the glass one broke. I would imagine it would last longer

I purchased the MW102 meter. It differs from the MW101 model that TSM sells in that it auto calibrates (no turning small screws) and also has a temp probe. Price was less than the 101 at Zorro http://www.zoro.com/g/Water%20Testing%2 ... /00097290/


Anyways unit works great. How long the electrode lasts only time will tell. When it goes I will upgrade to the meat/cheese probe.

Also some videos on how to calibrate Ph and other meters http://www.milwaukeeinst.com/site/techn ... eo-manuals

Thanks for the feed back Bob. I might have to pull the trigger on one soon. Do you use the blender testing method?
Cheers

No I just ran into that when registering the warranty.

I have been mixing commuted meat with distilled water and mashing/mixing with a fork and seem to have good results, Next time I will try it both ways to see if there is a difference.
