    • Love this thermometer!

      I rec'd this thermometer as a gift and it is the best thermometer I've ever owned. I make loads of homemade candy that takes a candy thermometer and lots of stirring. Other candy thermometers break easily and do not register temps correctly (I went through 3 others this winter alone before I got this one). I love the temperature alarm feature that beeps at me when I'm at the correct temp. Also, having digital numbers is so much easier on my eyes--no more searching for the tiny little lines on the traditional thermometer. One of the problems I had in the past is that my thermometers would fall off the side of the pot and into the candy. And I would have to continually prop the thermometer back up to be straight. This thermometer hooks on and maintains a strong hold on the pot. Love it!! If you need a good, dependable thermometer, GET THIS ONE NOW!

      I recommend this product.

    • I bought this thermometer for candy making. I have a few issues with it. First, most of my candy recipes do not come far enough up on the stem so I dont get an accurate reading. The recipes do go over the line marked on the stem, but to get an accurate reading, apparently this line is not as high as it should be. Second, the product is topheavy and tends to fall over while still clipped to the pan. Be careful when removing it because the clip is a good one but it gets really hot. I also wish it had an on/off switch instead of an auto off switch that kicks in after 3.5 minutes below 130 degrees. When making fudge, I need to cool it to 110 degrees and cannot use this thermometer for that purpose. I would recommend this product but keep all the above in mind. It may be better suited for deep frying applications.

      I recommend this product.

    • This is one of the more accurate termometers I have tried and it is easy to use. I was not impressed with the named range selectors because they are too small to be readable, but the temperature display is easy to see. You can set the alarm based on the position of the named ranges if you consult the instructions where the names are more legible. The clamp holds the thermometer in place well and doesn't allow the probe to move up and down so it will not accidently touch the bottom of the pan. It does tend to tip from side to side a bit, but there is little danger of it falling off of the pan.

      I recommend this product.

    • Love this digital thermometer

      This is a great thermometer. I use it for yogurt making. Dairy thermometers do not have the clip and are not digital. This works great and doesn't fall off the pot. Would rate a 5 if I could turn it off myself and not have it time out in the middle of my cooking!

    • 91 year old fudge maker

      I bought this for my mom who likes to make fudge. We have not tried it yet but I have my reservations. It has two stickers on the back that came off in the mail. I put them back on but wonder if they will fall off into the fudge?? The reading material is very small and even I had to use a magnifying glass to read the different levels. So I'm not sure if mom will be able to set the setting correctly or not. She definitely will not be able to read it during the cooking process. So knowing she can't see to set it, I am concerned whether this was a good purchase. The battery was hard to insert, and there is no turn off button. So these are my concerns .

    • problems with design

      This thermometer is top heavy, and will not stay upright. The digital part is much to small to read. Was very disappointed with it. I looked at several and now wished I would have purchased a different one

    • Disappointment

      I bought this thermometer prior to doing all my Christmas candy making, and it made it through 3 batches of toffee before breaking. Thankfully, I had ordered another type of thermometer as a backup, or I would have been in big trouble...

    • A great thermometer

      I had been looking for a really good thermometer, and seen this one, read the reviews, ordered it and I am very please with it. I make candy and couldn't find a thermometer that was true, but this one is. It is expensive, but well worth the cost. I would order another one if it went out.

    • Piece of Junk

      The probe is way too long for any regular sized saucepan. There are little stick on labels on the back side of the unit that were loose in the package. If you managed to stick them on again, they would fall into your candy or oil in a minute. The clip scratched my pan. The sensor unit is too heavy for the long probe. It is a bad design and overpriced as well, Do not buy this thermometer,.

      I used this to make dark chocolate-covered toffee and the results were fantastic! The thermometer beeped at 305 degrees which was the setting for hard crack. Perfect toffee!

      Put your old glass thermometer away. You won't even need it as a backup. The accuracy is the best feature of this meter. Selectable for Candy or Oil. I love it. If I could change anything, I would have the alarm settings changed from icons to actual temperature levels. That is, rather than "Hard Crack" to say "300°" However the temperature reading at the top is what is important and it is very accurate. I also love the AAA batteries, they are available everywhere. In order to save money, I started making my own potato chips and candy some time ago. According to my calculations, this device has not only paid for itself, it is now making money for my family each time we save.

      I recommend this product.

    • Better than the rest!

      After trying for 3 years to make decent candy and to fry things that come good. My husband gave me the money (for christmas) for the themometer after we saw it on Good Eats. All the store bought themometers that we have (3or 4) are no longer being used. Thank you food network for carrying this themometer and Thank YOU Alton Brown for recomending it.

    • Candy thermometer

      This thermometer is pretty decent. I like how, since it is digital, you don't have to try to read temp numbers below the surface of the candy you're making. My only real qualm would have to be that it is top-heavy, akwardly so. I had problems with it falling over the first time I was using it, but with a bit of patience I figured out how to adjust it properly. However, it is still akward, so BEWARE of it falling out of the pan!

      I finally am able to make candy in our humid climate. The thermometer has taken the guess work out of candy making. The only problem is that the print is too small. It is difficult to read even with glasses.

      As I live in Australia I was unable to have this product shipped to me and had to get it sent via a contact in the US. This was of a slight inconvenience to me. Unfortunately I was unable to purchase a similiar product in Australia. I have a manufacturing business and particularly needed a thermometre with a long probe to fit into a large pan. I am extremely happy with the one I purchased from your company and it fulfills all my requirements. Thankyou.

      I recommend this product.
