After breaking or melting three different thermometers, I bought this one because it looked well-made. After using it for several months, my wife and I are both very happy with its durability and accuracy (at least for deep fat frying in a dutch oven).
We have not used it for making candy.
Sturdy (my 2-year old used it as a hammer without breaking it)
Visually appealing (looks too good to put away in the kitchen drawer)
Doesn't need batteries
Adjustable, in the event that recalibration is needed
The thermometer head is heavy and may not stay put in shallow pots and pans.
Clip does not grip one of my pots very securely (Lodge enamel dutch oven) and I worry about it falling over.
If I lose this thermometer, I'm buying the exact same one again.
If you are having problems with the clamp I'm guessing you are pulling it into position rather than pushing. The way the clamp attaches to the rod, pulling it into position will make the clamp loose and unable to hold the pot well. That may not make sense until you have the thermometer in hand, but believe me when I say the clamp works great.
The only downside this has is shared with all dial thermometers I've seen, which is that the degree marks are close together and makes estimation necessary (but only slightly more so than the traditional thermometer types). More than makes up for it in how easy it is to see a dial however.
The needle most definitely does not get in the way.
The thermometer is not advertised as water proof so be careful not to immerse it when washing the stem. A feature not seen often in thermometers in this price range is the ability to calibrate the dial. Happily, when I compared it at several temperatures against my CDN commercial candy thermometer, I found no point between 200F and 300F where the two differed by as much as five degrees. The temperature measurements seem to be both accurate and linear.
To the extent that there is room for improvement, it would be in the pan clip. It works fine but you don't position it quite as you think you might from looking at it. You'll want to play with it for a minute or so with an empty pan so you catch on to how it should be positioned. Once in place, I found it quite stable.
Bottom line? Well made, accurate, capable of calibration, a little more expensive than some other dial candy thermometers but this is an area where you get what you pay for. Readily recommended for the home cook.
Alternatively, I made a block of wood with a slot (created by the table saw) to sit on the side of the pot. I then drilled a 3/16 inch hole for the sensor portion to go through. To control the depth the sensor protrudes into the oil, turn the metal clip that comes with the thermometer upside down.

Appears quite solid, but when I tested it in boiling water at sea level, it read 200 degrees, not 212. Read morePublished 7 days ago by PGA

I was a little disappointed with it because it was hard to keep it on the edge of the pan and could not keep the tip in the candy without burning myself, so the candy burned before... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Nituma zitting
