Product Description

Product Description

This fabulous hot beverage thermometer will allow you to know when your drink is at the perfect frothing temperature. Viewing the large dial is easy and its sealed to prevent fogging. A convenient clip on the stem allows the thermometer to attach to a container. When making hot beverages, milk will scald if steamed to too high a temperature. Use a frothing thermometer to ensure milk is steamed to prime frothing temperature (between 140 and 160 F).

Amazon.com

This professional-grade frothing thermometer clips to the side of a frothing pitcher and permits baristas (espresso machine operators) to instantly and precisely measure temperatures while steaming milk for cappuccinos or caffe lattes. The thermometer measures temperatures from 120 to 180 degrees F, and the optimum frothing temperature zone is indicated on the 1-1/4-inch dial in purple. The instrument has a 5-inch stainless-steel stem. --Fred Brack

Not a bad thermometer for making the perfect froth for your cappucino. Pluses: Temp range for perfect milk temperature highlighted (140-160 deg. F), reasonably priced. Minuses: It should include a plastic protector tube (to prevent inadvertant stabbings...), and it would be nice if the temp gauge went down to 80 degrees. To get a good froth, try dancing the steam wand at the top of the milk until the temp reaches 100 deg.F. As the foam rises, follow it up. At 100 deg.F, push the wand down into the milk until the temp reaches 140-160 deg.F. Have fun!

I own several other Taylor thermometers and they are all very good quality items for their price range. However, this thermometer, though its quality is fine, lacks the temperature markings (i.e., it does not even go down to 100 F!) needed to perfect the steamed milk or frothed milk needed for lattes, cappucinos, or macchiatos. As one of the previous reviewers mentioned, once the temperature reaches 100 F, you should move the steam wand from the surface to the bottom. This is an essential step to get the perfect "microfoam" (not big soap bubbles) that makes for a fantastic latte or cappucino. Bottom line: find a thermometer that has easy to read numbers, a clip, and temperature that goes down to at least 100, but preferably lower.

This is an excellent constructed thermometer for making perfect froth. Indicator is tightly sealed and no fogging. And solid stainless-steel construction. I bought it a month ago and have no complain. Make sure you only need it for making froth and not other usages. If you look at the picture, you'll see the it only works at temperature from 120-180F. Good quality and nice price.

It was with some trepidation that I ordered this thermometer; I had read the review(s) stating that the lack of a 100 degree mark was a problem. I ordered anyway.

First of all, the lack of a 100 degree mark isn't a big issue. You can gauge where that is on the circle based on the length of the marks between 120 and 140.

Second of all, this thermometer has revolutionized my milk frothing. I'm actually able to know what I'm doing, and (no small thanks to my Gaggia Evolution) I'm now making beautiful microfoam, with repeatable results. The repeatability is what makes this such a great tool.

Highly recommended.

Great gift for someone else. You will use this the first 10 times and then just wing it after as its pretty easy to get the hang of it and no longer need this. Mine got used about 10 times and is now in a drawer somewhere. Nice though, well built.

As you might expect, it does in fact tell you the temperature of your milk. The clip clips nicely onto a frothing pitcher (to the person who said the clip broke when you clipped it onto a mug a few times - that's because you clipped it onto a mug a few times... it's for a frothing pitcher.) The yellow shading on the "sweet spot" of the dial is clear and useful. It's adequately responsive for the price (in my experience, lag is 3 seconds, not 7 as previous poster mentioned).

In other words, it does exactly as advertised in exactly the manner the price point indicates it would. Perfectly adequate tool for the recreational latte maker.

It's a temp gauge. It tells you the temperature and then you do your thing. It works, and as far as I can tell, it's giving me the right temp. Just keep in mind that heat (energy) transfer is always delayed (much like high noon is not the hottest time of day) and this will effect the "real" temperature. I use it to make sure my water isn't going to scald my coffee (french press) and I make sure to pull the water off when it's under 170°. A few moments later and it'll rise to just over 170°.

Oh, and one cool thing, you can actually adjust the clip. My water pot and my milk frother are two different heights, so I can easily go back and forth. Added kudos' for that!

after three months of use, it stopped registering tempurature. while it worked, though, it was a "must-have" for excellant froth. I would recommend getting *a* thermometer, not necessarily this one (unless mine was a dud)
