If I were to just pack a meat thermometer in my lunch box

In this day an age, we pretty much assume that microwave meals are "self contained," save for a utensil or two. They even have their own bowl/plate! If I were to conduct some field research on the microwave meal consumer, I'm sure my participants would find the typical use cases to be:
- those who carry to work for a lunch....
- those that are unwilling or unable to kick start the 'ol oven/range and cook up something from scratch.
well, those are pretty much the big use cases I'd guess... In any event, I'm sure if we'd canvas those participants, I'm sure the "a's" would not have access to a meat thermometer, and the "b's" would not care enough use one.
On Step 5, the text reads:
Check that the product is cooked thoroughly
*Internal temperature need to reach 165 degrees as measured by a food thermometer
