Default How to use Atkins doughnut thermocouple probe?

i just got an Atkins K Thermocouple Thermometer that you put the round ceramic pc with the two cross wires. Where exactly do I place the ceramic piece? Does the ceramic pc go Inside the garmen? Does it matter Which side of the ceramic piece with cross hairs is placed up or down? One side is flat while the other side has 2 little screw like metal pieces with springs.
Thanks,Twillie

Put the side with the two cross hairs on it on the top of the ink and send it through. You'll be surprised at the difference between the probe and a temp gun like me I'm sure. I like to hit the Max temp button in case I look away or I'm not there when it comes out the dryer and it will record the hottest it gets. Also, make sure that there isn't anything in the way of the cord when you send it through that causes it to be pulled off the ink. Hate it when that happens.

Thank you for your answer. Have a plumbing problem at the moment. We will test it later this afternoon.

OK I sent the probe through on top of the ink. Thanks for advice. Before your answer I wasn't sure if the probe could go in the ink & not get my new toy all a mess with ink. . I bought the Atkins probe because I have a vastex Econored II that is ancient that I have owned for over 25 years. I wasn't trusting the dryer or the heat gun so I bought the probe. Leading up to the purchase I kept having to slow down the dryer belt & lower the height of the heating elements to get the results of @ 340 degrees.
Just started playing/testing with the donut probe today briefly & the results between the gun & the probe seem to be over 60-70 degrees apart. Ouch! Now I have to get serious. Today I had to do the testing alone so i will do it again on Thursday when I have a helper.
Thanks again for your advice.
