    Very well made and more importantly, very accurate to use for frying and candymaking--when accuracy makes all the difference in the world. Nice size, easy to clean up.

    This is a great quality deep fry thermometer. The price is the lowest that I've seen. I also use it for making toffees and caramels. This is a useful tool for such a low price

    This thermometer works very well for frying. As you can see in the pictures, it has nice clear font for temperatures in addition to labels for different desired outcomes. We've used this for frying, but it also works for ensuring water is the correct temperature for yeast. It's very versatile, useful, sturdy, and seems built to last.

    An awesome tool to have. When making caramel or poaching anything, a candy thermometer helps a lot. I even use it when I deep fry anything at home. It's fun to watch the temperature go up and down as I keep adding more food to the oil.

    I love how tall this thermometer is, it easily reaches the bottom of most pots and the clip is also so handy for when you don't have enough hands to hold it upright and cook at the same time

    Durable and accurate - you can ask for very little else from a candy thermometer, and this delivers on both counts. One tiny drawback is that the clip on the back is a little bit flimsy. Nothing to worry about unless you're attaching it to a thick-walled pan with any regularity.

    This is a very good quality unit and has saved my bacon on my frier temps - works and is built well - no regrets on this one

    I love these candy thermometers! They last a very long time and are true to temperature- they are a kitchen necessity and I highly recommend!

    The kitchen staff loves this thermometer. It is very accurate and allows us to get items to the exact heat without burning or ruining them.

    I don't want to admit how many digital thermometers we have gone through. It seems that when you need them the most, the battery is always dead and you never have a back up. This is the best solution, simple is very often the best!

    from Miss Debs Posted on

    They are built to last, very strong and robust design. I use it to measure the temperature of the oil in my of my fryers. Reliable.

    from Oscar Posted on

    this candy thermometer proved to be invaluable. In frying both the french fries and funnel cakes we were able to better control the temperature of the oil. Easy to read and use.

    This is my very favorite candy thermomter. Just latch on the side of the pan and come back to check for the proper temp. I have two of these, but the temp varies by a couple of degrees, so you may need to adjust the scre on the back to make it accurate, or allow for this. Cleans up easily.

    from WINDY CORNER Posted on

    I use this for candy in my bakery. The temperature is very accurate. It's a nice and long. Cleaning this is easy and comes out perfect.

    from Baked and Sconed, LLC Posted on

    This arrived today, and I've already used it. I checked the temp with another thermometer and it was right on. I should have gotte one years ago. Great product.

    This thermometer is great, way better than the typical "candy thermometer" which you get for cheap. It has a sturdy clip (see picture) and its "holder" allows it to rest at the bottom of your frying vessel. I should have bought one years ago.

    from MG Posted on

    This is a very large candy and deep fry thermometer but it is super accurate! Great for deep frying in a pot where its hard to judge temperature!!

    Nothing fancy. Good, sturdy craftsmanship. I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but I know when I do, it will definitely do the job.

    from Scrumptious! Posted on

    Works awesome! Easy to read and easy to use. it has a clip in the back so you can stable it on to the pot.

    from Sight & Sound Studios Posted on

    Great item to have on hand. It is the same one used by Ina Garten on The Barefoot Contessa show. Excellent price and good quality. -Patricia, Front Royal, VA
