Customer questions about this product

Can I calibrate this thermometer in ice water?
Thermometers intended for measuring food and liquid with higher temperatures, such as this thermometer, should be calibrated in boiling water while those used for taking lower temperatures should be calibrated in ice water. To calibrate your thermometer in boiling water, bring clean water to a boil and place the thermometer probe into the boiling water for at least one minute.

    This product works great. I use it for Carmel and it's nice because it allows me to hook it to the pot. Great price as well.

    This thermometer is convenient and easy to use. It's good quality and a great size for measuring the temp of various dishes in our cafe.

    from Oak Hill Bulk Foods, Inc. Posted on

    The thermometer works very nicely - so far its use has been oil temp for frying chicken. I like that it clips to the edge of the pan.

    I ordered this candy and deep fry thermometer a while ago but I didn't have chance to try it out to tonight. I'm glad I got it.

    Posted on

    All around Great product! Works exactly as you would hope that it would. I use it to temp my milk when I make lattes to make sure it's not too cold or too hot after I steam the milk

    This candy thermometer is accurate with three degrees. I love the fact that it is easy to use and has saved me from burning everything from fries to homemade caramel.

    from Dog Gone Good Time Posted on

    Having just used this the other night to make some homemade chips, I can confidently say that this thermometer does its job. It securely and easily attaches to the side of your pot and clean up was a breeze.

    Posted on

    Easy to use and it seems to hold off on any moisture getting into the glass. A great buy. I haven't had to adjust the calibration and our sugar work is spot on.

    from breezy point international Posted on

    I'll be honest, I love deep fried desserts. From churros to doughnuts, empanadas to fried oreos. And while I don't indulge often, when I do I like to cook things properly. This thermometer is a great way to see exactly where your oil is at and get the most consistent results.

    Posted on

    great for all types of uses from steaks, chicken, and even baking. under cook meat problems will be gone with this handy tool on hand

    from Snowbite Posted on

    This did not work for me at all. I tried calibrating it in hot water and it still did not work. It would never move beyond 110 degrees. Too late to return so I'll have to toss it.

    Thanks for reviewing this item! We are sorry to hear that the thermometer you received was defective. We suggest this Taylor Candy Thermometer as an alternative. Its stainless steel construction is durable and this item is dishwasher safe!

    Large, easy to read thermometer. Durable and well built, the price on this cannot be beat. Our local store was asking more than twice as much.

    Posted on

    Unbeatable price for stainless shaft and large, easy to read dial. We shopped around and couldn't find anyone who could match these for the price.

    from Deep South Soap Posted on

    Same Taylor quality that you will pay twice as much for locally. Used for making fudge, or for heating sugar to make homemade candy. Washes up easily, and comes with a 1 year warranty.

    This thermometer is easy to use, it has a timeless design, it is accurate, sturdy and reliable. We are happy with it and it is an excellent price for a great product.

    from Miss Debs Posted on

    So far It's worked for what I needed it to do, which isn't a lot to be honest. I've used it to make yoghurt and it did the job very well. The yoghurt came out better than usual because the temperature reading was very accurate. I'm sure If I use this for actual candy making it will perform wonderfully.

    Posted on

    I use this thermometer for making fudge, and requires me to use two hands, one to hold the pot and one to stir the sugar mixture. So with the clip on this thermometer, I am able to watch the temp while using my other hands. For the fudge though, I am getting a soft ball stage at about 232 degrees on this thermometer even though the face of the thermometer says 240 for soft ball. Maybe this is just a reflection of my ingredients. In any case, I just know where the reading should be every time I make fudge and seems to be very consistent. I would definitely buy this one again for my usage in making fudge.

    Used to check the grease temp when I fry Southern Fried chicken and don't want to overheat the oil. Great gadget especially for this price. Received this in 2 days. Thank you!

    from home use Posted on

    The Taylor 3505 TruTemp Candy and Deep Fry Thermometer works perfect to make sure your candy is at the perfect temp. this item is priced right, and if you don't have one I sugest you order up a few. They are great to have.

    Posted on

    This product makes candy making a breeze! And with deep frying it certainly helps if you're very particular about correct temperatures for different products. Plus it has a price that can't be beat.

    from Global Spice Bistro Posted on

    This is the perfect thermometer for making candy apples. We make a lot of candy apples in the fall the customers love to get them to go. It can also be used for other candy's or for carmelizing sugar for certain recepie's.

    from Harrison enterprizes Posted on

    Takes an inordinately long time to read temperature - more than a minute to go from 0 to 250. Also has an incredibly short stalk, so the clip is useless unless you're using a short-sided pot or an unnecessary amount of liquid, both of which are dangerous.

    Posted on

    This thermometer is more heavy duty than others I have bought. Seems to be accurate and holding up well. This thermometer is worth the money.

    Posted on

    Apart from sugar syrups, I also use the candy thermometer for yogurt making and frothed milk for coffee. This one has a large dial, the markings are easy to read, it looks sturdy, and works well.

    candy thermometer

    This is the perfect thermometer for sugar work. Easy to cook sugar to the exact temperature needed for the item you want. Decent for deep frying too.

    Posted on

    This candy and deep fry thermometer works similarly and functions similarly. It's great for home and work use and the price is reasonably cheap enough to stock up on these

    Posted on

    This is a good TruTemp candy and deep fry thermometer!! Great for cooking with all sorts of oils! Nice clip on feature will work great for deep frying in woks!!!

    Posted on

    This thermometer seems to be very accurate, and you can't beat the price! The clip is very handy too for attaching it to my deep fryer.

    from Say Cheese Posted on

    This is a good deep fryer thermometer. It's not expensive like some thermometers, but it does get the job done. I would say that mine is very accurate.

    Posted on

    This is a decent thermometer for on the stove deep frying. you can accurately heat your oil and not worry about burning anything or catching fire.

    Posted on

    Finally, I can easily measure my oil for frying doughnuts! This thing is great, I can just stick it in the oil and I get a fast reading, none of that "slow crawl to the right temp" the other thermometers do...
