Infrared Thermometer

IR thermometers can be used to measure the temperature of your Himalayan salt block. Chefs, especially, seem to like to know precisely what cooking temperature they are using for various different foods, donenesses, etc.

    I have a Pro Nuwave Infrared Oven that combined infrared with conduction & convection heat. Will my 8X4X2 salt block be safe in this oven? Can you give me any tips? I would think I’d heat the block first then put on the 4″ plug and probably set it to reheat?

    @Rosemary – I wouldn’t recommend heating your block in this oven because it is an enclosed space. Himalayan salt blocks heat best when they’re exposed to the open, like on a stove-top or open grill. If you heat it up in an enclosed space, any water vapor that is on the block won’t be able to escape and will re-condense on the salt block due to its hygroscopic nature. This cycle causes blocks to degrade much faster and makes it much more likely the block will break.
