This internal thermometer for the Hotbin composter measures temperature in both Celsius (°c) and Fahrenheit (°f).
While the Hotbin also has a built-in Lid Thermometer, the internal thermometer gives more accurate measurements of the heat inside the composter.
Using the Internal Thermometer
For an accurate internal measurement, simply place the thermometer into the hottest most active layer of waste, typically the top 5-10cm. Try not to leave the thermometer in the HOTBIN as its easy to forget about it when adding waste - you’ll soon find it buried!
When you are ready to take an internal measurement simply lift the lid of the HOTBIN, pop the thermometer in and shut the lid. Leave the thermometer inside for at least a minute to ensure an accurate reading before removing.
