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.

    It has been few months since we have used this thermometer. We have used this one to make hot sauce and things like that, and it works very well.
    Nice thermometer. It is very convenient and I lovr using this one. It also came very quickly and was well packaged. I Will definitely buy again.
    A+++ this item is great when cooking. we use this thermometer to keep an eye on the heat of our ice cream base. The clip attaches to our pot perfectly!
    The picture of this thermometer shows it in a milk steam pitcher....but they are TO big for that! They are GREAT thermometers but the 8in stem is probably a little big for using it as a milk steam thermometer.
    No problems--purchased for cheesemaking and have found it to be perfectly adequate for that purpose. could have a larger display without hurting my feelings but can't beat the price!
    every chef or cook needs to carry at least one thermometer with them at all times while on duty. i carry one of these and also an instant read digital thermometer in my pocket all of the time. you owe it to your customers to make sure that all critical temperatures are constantly monitored.
    We always keep a thermometer on hand at festivals in case the health inspector wants to check the temperature of our products. These are great!

    Easy to read thermometer. This is a bit sharp so be very careful if you do probe with the thermometer. It easily hangs off into pots of melting chocolate or butter.
    I knew Webstaurant would have the 8" stems! Our local health department requires 8" stems and Webstaurant has been the one and only place I could find them and for such an affordable price, I bought two; one for the food truck and one for a gift!
