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.

    great thermometer thermometers accurate digital easy price store Always best
    very nice, staff love these easy to use and they have a clear display. great investment. I don't always have the time to check and I don't wont to worry that someone has a thermometer that is not calibrated. Great buy
    Ordered 4 of these Taylor thermometers because of my past experiences with Taylor. Thermometers arrived earlier than expected. Had a bit of an issue calibrating 1 of them but eventually got. Have been extremely satisfied with these. My experiences with Webstaurant Store has always been satisfying.
    We use this probe to check out soft serve ice cream temperatures. Always gives us accurate results, which results in a great product. Easy to use as well. Definitely would recommend this product.
    I'm always a little shocked at how much digital thermometers can cost sometimes, but thus far I've found taylor to be the best for my buck.
    Great product! Easy to use and easy to read with the digital display. We have had a some issues with them falling out of the protective sleeve when in the sleeve pocket of a chef coat.
    The Taylor 5" Waterproof Digital Pocket Probe Thermometer is highly accurate and durable. It is waterproof and easy to use. It is small enough to fit in your pocket. This is a must have for any commercial and residential kitchen.
    Unfortunately, these did not hold up. I thought it was one defective thermometer but both of them are giving us grief after just over one month of use. The temperature reading is way off and changes daily. We attempted to calibrate them but it doesn't stick. Our cold stuff is always "L" and our hot stuff is measuring way higher than it's supposed to. I'm searching for a more reliable digital thermometer now.
    Thank you for your feedback! We're sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    This little digital has it all: Barely legible display, difficult to re-calibrate, short battery life, prone to moisture breach & oh yeah; try & replace the battery while you're on a mobile catering gig without the use of super colorful metaphors. Yep, no doubt about it, the 9842 is a technological marvel. I suggest that you store the ones that you have purchased in the same place that we did with the 3 that we own(ed)-the dumpster. Ending on a positive note though, the plastic color is cool.
    Thank you for your feedback, Robert! We are sorry you did not prefer this thermometer, if you are looking for recommendations please contact our Customer Solutions team!
    The Taylor Probe Thermometer is great, fits easily into my kitchen jacket and apron and takes accurate readings of all foods, best part, it's waterproof.
    I have owned at least two of theses thermometers over the years. It is one of the best I have used for the price point no would buy again
    To bad we can't give negative stars. DON"T BUY FROM WEBSTRAUNT Bought 6 of these thermometers. I opened one and it didn't work. read the instructions and it says to take out the battery and reinstall. It was difficult to get it back in. Still didn't work. Chatted online with April stating that the one I opened does not work and I want to return all 6. So I can return the unopened ones but I have to pay restocking and shipping. The defective one they will talk to the manufacturer about rather than just taking them all back and giving me my money back. Poor way to treat a customer.
    Thank you for the review, Merv. We are sorry you were not happy with our return policy. We were happy to help you receive credit for the broken thermometer. Please note that these thermometers are covered by a 1 year warranty by Taylor. If you find the remaining 5 thermometers to be defective, we will be more than willing to address this.
    This thermometer works great and is very durable. It is small and easy to store. The readings are accurate. I will be purchasing a few more.
    This thermometer is very durable and accurate. Works great for just about every use. Small and very easy to store. Now all I got to do is to make sure it's waterproof
    Purchased a few of these. Best price on the internet, well made with know problems. All seem to be within reading. For the price you can't go wrong
    A nice, compact thermometer that is easy to store. I've used it for checking the temperature of meats, breads, oil, and when cooking sugar. Works accurately, although it is a little slow if you need an immediate reading
    Waterproofing tested and confirmed. I accidenally dropped this into a pot of boiing water, it came out with the screen warped, but it functions perfectly.
    Works great and is highly durable. I have used this thermometer for 10 plus years, and in that time I only had to replace once this is truly an indispensable tool in any kitchen.
    small and handy. Check for accuracy before using for candy making. This reads a couple of degrees different than my larger ''candy thermomter'' but it is basically accurate. This is easier to store or carry, and less chance to damage with it's own shield. Good water proof option without spending a fortune.
    really like this thermometer. it can handle checking high heat and very cold temps. it stays accurate every time. great product for a great price.
    Love these thermometers, overall great for the price, we've had one dropped in the fryer momentarily (a couple times) and it still workes fine. Have purchased a couple and not sure why one reads twice as fast as the other. Water resistant is nice to spray them off too
    This thermometer fits nicely into a chef's coat sleeve pocket, it is simple, and functional, but it doesn't take a temperature read as quickly as others that I have used.
    These Digital Thermometers are much more accurate and quicker response time that the dial ones. also the smaller tip make the holes that it creates less noticeable. wish they sell replacement probe sleeves
    this water proof digital probe therm has been a great reliable tool we use on a regular basis to ensure the best food possiable to our customers
    These are very convenient to use. The instructor in my sanitation class recommended digital thermometers which he felt were much more accurate, so we switched to digital and have been very pleased with these.
    Low price, fast and low cost delivery,NSF approved products, shop from home at my own convience and open 24 hours a day, seven days a week !! You can't find better!!!
    We love this thermometer. It is perfect for quick checking of our sauces and fillings. The clip on the sleeve makes it easy to put on an apron pocket.
