In the context of a pizza oven, a thermocouple is a device that measures the temperature inside the oven. It consists of two dissimilar metal wires that create a small electric current when exposed to heat, allowing for accurate temperature monitoring.


  • “The thermocouple in the pizza oven monitors and regulates the temperature, ensuring that it stays at the desired level.”
  • “If the thermocouple is not working properly, the pizza oven may heat up too much, resulting in burnt pizzas.”
