Accurate and easy to use, this glass thermometer takes the guesswork out of making foods such as candy, jellies and maple syrup.
It has an adjustable steel clip with a wooden ball for grip that attaches to the side of a pan, keeping the thermometer’s tip from contacting the sides or bottom. Clear temperature scales in a range from 100° to 400°F and 38° to 204°C are shown, as well as markings for candy-making stages (soft-ball, hard-ball, soft-crack and hard-crack), so you can keep an eye on critical temperature thresholds.
Not only for candy making, it works equally well for deep-frying foods and has markings for donuts, fish and potatoes. NSF-rated for food safety, it is about 8 1/2" long and comes in a protective sleeve with a candy and deep-frying temperature guide.
