The first (and only time) we used this was for deep frying and afterwards we noticed the tip was melted and the outer glass tubing was cracked. It wasn't bumped, mistreated or overheated in any way...it's just junk.

I bought this for a workshop I was leading and I realized that I had forgotten my own candy thermometer. It turned out the reading was around 50°F. (25°C) too low. Though I realized immediately what the problem was, I had a great deal of difficulty persuading one of the workshop participants that she shouldn't boil her sugar syrup to the temperature the thermometer was telling her. (Her syrup reached almost the hard crack stage and the thermometer was still reading below 200°F.)

Anyhow, I think the problem was simply that the paper card was set too high inside the glass tube that contains the thermometer, but there is no way to open the tube to recalibrate the thing. I'd say, don't buy this product.

I purchased this around Christmas time to make candy, and it broke before I could even use it. I didn't even handle it roughly, the glass on it is just EXTREMELY thin and fragile. Stay away from this, it's worth the extra money to buy one that isn't glass.

Please don't buy this piece of junk used it about 3 times for frying and on the 3rd time the blue liquid burst through the bottom. The only good thing about this product was that it was cheap, but i guess the old adage is true you get what you paid for.

My family has used this type of thermometer for making candy & jellies for years, but my mother had a few and I remember buying new ones for her often. I have only just began to make those things and since I also occasionally fry chicken I decided to give it a try. This thermometer had never been bumped, cracked or mistreated (in my possesion) and was never loaned to anyone or anything of the sort. I was the only person to use it and I was very careful with it the few times I used it. Tonight I made my husband and our 3 kids fried chicken and after we had all finished eating & I began cleaning up, I found out that the thermometer had broken. I freaked out and immediately called poison control who went over mercury poison signs/symptoms with me and googled the brand of thermometer I was using. She found it here on Amazon and informed me that it did not contain mercury and we would be fine, but we should inspect our food for broken glass. Luckily it broke in only one piece and we are fine but that is quite an ordeal to go thru for something that the reviews say is very easily broken. Wish I would have read that before buying this one, I would not have wasted my time or money on it. Spend a few bucks more and get a digital one, save yourself a big headache later :-)

I just spent hours of time making Christmas Eve candy for kids waiting for Santa. All for nothing. The thermometer failed -it's never been used. There was so much water inside that I couldn't read the temperature to cut the heat at the soft candy stage -didn't have a backup thermometer. All stores closed because it's 2:00 AM. The candy is the consistency of a sauce and I don't even trust that whatever was used inside hasn't leaked.

I picked this candy thermometer up at my local grocery store for the fantastic price of $2.99. I love it for the price--it's very affordable. I also like the slip cover that has a handy reference for temperatures as well as adds protection. The clip on the side is essential for holding the thermometer in place while cooking.
The only con to this thermometer is that it is easily broken. One slip/drop and the glass is shattered. So weigh this with the price...it may be worth a couple dollars more to go with something a little more durable.

We have an earlier model of this same thermometer. It is made of plastic with a metal tip or end. We have used in a number of times for deep frying. Tonight the plastic barrel near the tip broke, the metal slagged in the frying pan oil at an approximate temperature of 375 degrees. We cannot in good conscious recommend this product for use in deep frying or candy making.
