Customer Q&A Ask a Question

How do I safely and thoroughly clean my Taylor thermometer?
Your Taylor thermometer is constructed of a durable stainless steel probe, and in some cases, a plastic head. When cleaning your thermometer, do not immerse it in water or use it in the dishwasher unless the description specifically states that it is waterproof and dishwasher safe. Simply clean the stainless steel stem with hot, soapy water and wipe the head with a damp cloth.
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. The thermometer should read between 210 and 214 degrees Fahrenheit. Record the difference and adjust your thermometer as needed.

    frothing thermometer great hot milk pitcher nice beverages drinks lattes
    This thermometer works great. It will do the job for anything you’d like. I love cooking with this it makes my life so much easier.
    Webstaurant provides great values on all small wears and equipment. This is no exception to the rule; we have moved all our small wears purchases to Webstaurant.
    Useful but not perfect. These are great initially but when you need to calibrate the dial does not read freezing or boiling temperatures so you need another accurate way to ensure that the temperature is correct.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    Great thermometer! It has lots of uses, including checking temperature of milk for proofing yeast. Responds quickly and accurately to temperatures that it is placed within
    These do their job. We use them for our espresso drinks and milk frothing. They definitely need to be calibrated. I tested 2 of them and they were 10 degrees off from each other.
    Doesn't get much use anymore however it is great for training and learning to feel the frothing pitcher. Highly Recommend if you are needing one.
    This works as it should, however, I prefer the larger face of the 1 3/4" thermometer that we purchased. For tall people who aren't as close to their frothing pitcher, it's nice to have a bigger face.
    These thermometers are just the right size to stick in a frothing pitcher to check the temperature of a hot chocolate or any other hot drink
    This is a great thermometer to use to make hot beverages. So far it holds up well to constant everyday use, and stays accurate pretty well.
    This hot beverage thermometer is a must have tool for assessing the proper water temperature for brewing coffee and tea. I keep this on my person at all times at my pop-up coffee and dessert shop.
    This is a nice little beverage thermometer. it's got a nice little sleeve so you can carry it around without contaminating it. also comes with a frothing holder.
    Super great! I use this to temp frothed milk for my cappuccinos. The clip is handy and can easily be attached to the frothing pitcher for a hassle free way to temp the milk. It also registers very quickly and is easy to read.
    Great for the perfect latte foam. My husband has perfected the seamed milk for our lattes. We have an at home latte machine so this thermometer is perfect for the at home barista!
