It counts 24 hours up or down by hours, minutes and seconds. It features a long, loud alarm, and its mem- ory button can recall frequently used set- tings. It functions as timer, clock and stopwatch. Its digital memory function makes it easy to time a multitude of repetitive tasks. For example, it helps maintain quality standards at a beverage station by alerting the user to toss the old coffee 20 to 30 minutes after brewing. To use, simply slide the mode switch on the side of the unit to set the timer to count up or down or to display the clock. For easy transport, it comes with a clip to attach to a pocket or apron, and a magnet and easel for standing upright on a counter. It's made of food-safe ABS plastic, and uses one LR44 button battery (included). The CDN Multi-Task Timer & Clock (TM8) is available for immediate ship- ment, with a list price of $16.50. It comes with a 5-year warranty. Precise temperature and time are essential details in foodservice. If you're a foodservice professional, CDN ther- mometers and timers are the a c c u r a t e choice, every time.

INTEGRATED CONTROL CORP.: TAKING THE TEMPERATURE OF FOOD SERVICE Facilities that serve food are subject to maintaining necessary temperatures on stored, held and served food products. As anyone in this industry knows, temperature is one of if not, the most important meas- urement of food safety and quality. For sev- eral years, Integrated Control Corp. (ICC) has successfully installed their temperature monitoring system, Temp Minder™ in food service brands around the world in response to meeting this need. Systems are used by such diverse sites as a QSR 'down under' to a small college cafeteria in Oklahoma. These facilities rely on ICC to record and report the temperatures of refrigeration, hot holding, and food line items to guarantee quality, food safety and temperature regula- tory compliance. With the labor and regulatory challenges facing the restaurant industry today, a sys- tem like Temp Minder is a must for saving labor, money and most of all by providing peace of mind. Temp Minder has saved restaurants from losing product worth thou- sands more than the fractional price of a system. Take for example, a fine dining restaurant whose signature item is aged steak. While it is a money maker for the restaurant, it is an expensive commodity and one that takes time to age. Now take that same item without 24/7 temperature monitoring and a power outage during a storm. Loss of profit, product and time, not to mention disappointed customers and a PR hit, when the item is not available. It is necessary to know that refrigeration is being watched when no one is around. With Temp Minder temperatures are stored safely and can be conveniently accessed via the inter- net. Costly software and use of in house computers are not necessary and installation is virtually non-invasive to any facility. Consistency and quality is the name of the game and that's what ICC guarantees and produces with products like Temp Minder and CCP Minder™. CCP Minder has revolutionized the market by eliminating the guess work and putting confidence in the hands of the peo- ple that need it. No longer will food line items be neglected or have eligible logs. Completely wireless, CCP Minder is easy to use and works seamlessly with the menus and procedures that are already in place within an organization. With the use of CCP Minder, customers find themselves using their time efficiently to operate their facili- ties with ease of mind. The key in its suc- cess is once a menu is uploaded to the CCP website it is then uploaded into the device. During menu input, product reminders can be put in place so that the user no longer has to think about when they have to take tem- peratures because the CCP Minder reminds the user to do so. Also available to work with both Temp Minder and CCP Minder is Label Minder™. Label Minder will reduce cost and increase productivity by eliminating the time consuming task of hand writing date code labels. Like all ICC products, all of these devices are customizable to the unique environment in which they are used. All have internet "cloud" presence offering you access to information when and where you need it. Please contact Nick Hatsios, Product Manager at 877-ICC-8788 for more infor- mation and be sure to visit us at NAFEM, booth #1681 and on the web at www.goicc.com.
