Can the temperature be calibrated on a probe and is it NIST certified?
Summary
HQd temperature calibration and NIST certification

The temperature cannot be calibrated, so if cleaning the probe does not resolve temperatures reading incorrectly, the probe will most likely need to be replaced. Although the probe is not NIST certified, the temperature accuracy is compared to a thermometer that has been calibrated and certified by an accredited external agency
