Create sweet confections and crispy fried foods with the OXO Candy/Deep Fry Thermometer. Turn the outside indicator until it points to the desired stage of candy making or deep frying, and clip the Thermometer to your pot with the convenient easy-to-adjust pot clip. When the red dial is aligned with the indicator, your food is ready. Large, easy-to-read numbers and a storage sleeve with the stages of candy making and deep frying.
Fondant, fudge, and fries are more likely to attain perfection when made with a candy and deep frying thermometer such as this one from OXO. Sturdy stainless-steel construction means the thermometer wont be harmed by hot oil splatters, while a secure pot-clip prevents slippage. Calibrated for accuracy, the 3-inch-wide, easy-to-read dial displays a temperature range of 100 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, with markings for soft ball, firm ball, hard ball, soft crack, and hard crack candy, as well as zones for caramelizing and deep frying. To use, a sliding red indicator on the rim is set at the desired temperature; when the thermometer needle lines up with the indicator, the food is ready.
The position of the 6-inch probe in a pot is easily adjusted by squeezing the clip arms and moving the probe up or down. OXO provides a convenient storage sleeve for the thermometer featuring a quick-reference temperature guide for candy types, caramelizing, and frying. The thermometer should be washed by hand as it is not dishwasher-safe. OXO will repair, refund, or replace the thermometer if satisfaction is not complete. --Ann Bieri
