Product Description

Product Description

Easy to Read Zone Guide measures Temperatures from 100 degrees F to 700 Degrees F

Amazon.com

Most ovens, especially old ones, run hotter or colder than their set temperatures indicate. Rather than guessing how much to raise or lower the heat for a particular recipe, bake and roast with precision using a highly accurate oven thermometer like the Taylor Oven Guide. Made from durable, heavy-duty stainless steel, this mercury-free thermometer measures temperatures from 100 to 600 degrees Fahrenheit. The large, easy-to-read face also provides a heating zone guide. Dishwasher-safe, this thermometer can hang in the oven or stand alone. It's NSF listed for food hygiene and safety. --Mary Park

IT was working great, accurate.

I wanted to make sure my oven was always at the right temp and this thermometer was perfect.
Eileen Kimbell-Meaney
The numbers rubbed off after that, and I can't read this greatest of oven thermometers.

The temperature readings were spot on.
There are multiple ways to display it, hang it from the shelves in your oven, place it on the bottom of your oven. it's very stable, doesn't fall over, mostly because of it's 4 inch length.

BUT... as with all things in the oven, this will become splattered with grease, and harder to read, and you'll want to wash it....DON'T!

any type of cleaning, be it abrasive , or chemical, such as Simple Green, will erase the temperature markings... and make it useless.

The temperature markings on this thermometer are not protected! Over time the markings get occluded by grease and if you try to wash the grease off the markings come with it. This means the thermometer has a short life span for people who rely on the markings for anything (which granted is not everyone). Last time I buy an oven thermometer in which the markings don't sit behind a glass face!.

Ok... oven not seeming to be hot enough... bought an oven thermometer at Kroger's.. not expensive. Well, that purchase didn't seem to heat up as much as the oven..
Went to William and Sonoma and bought the Taylor 503, much more expensive. So it should really be good, right? That thermometer seemed to be so, so slow in reaction. And thanks to the position of my oven light.. I couldn't even read it.
Went to Amazon and got an overnight delivery of the Taylor Oven Guide Thermometer. ( don't add all of this up...three thermometers.. it's ridiculous)Bottom line... this one was perfect for me. As far as complaints of grease and cleaning and losing lettering?? I take it out before I put the item in to bake. (Hint..use tongs to remove it as it is HOT. If you use mitts or hot pads.. I guarantee you.. you will drop it.)

I bought one of these at the recommendation of a well-known cooking magazine (in which they tested it along with a very advanced temperature sensor), and it took top honors amongst a dozen other models. I've found it to be extremely helpful, easy to read, and a very stable design. Others I have used have proven far to easy to knock over!

After reading many reviews, I bought this one locally. It is both accurate and adjustable. Here's how to get the most out of it.

First, put it it a pot of boiling water. Use a pair of tongs to read the temperature while the glass is fully submersed. If it doesn't say 210 plus a smidge (water boils at 212 degrees F at sea level where I am), note how far it needs to be adjusted and take it out of the boiling water to cool (leave the water boiling. In a minute or so, it will be cool enough to handle. Carefully slide the glass thermometer the direction necessary to get the correct reading. Mine read about 205, so I slid the glass toward the bulb. I only had to do this once, but repeat the process as many times as necessary until you get the correct reading.

Next, set your oven for 300 degrees. Give the oven and thermometer time to adjust to each other, up to half an hour. My thermometer read exactly 300 degrees at that point. Repeat at 400 degrees, mine read exactly 400. If your thermometer reads another value, you know how much your oven is off. Some ovens are adjustable at their knobs, but electronic ovens are not. If you cannot adjust yours, just remember what your correction factor is.

Two more hints: Once you've calibrated your oven, you don't need to leave the thermometer in the oven. Recheck it as often as you think is necessary, which doesn't need to be very often.

According to most reviewers, the existing ink marks will come off in time. I have already scribed (scratched) the key lines and numbers into the metal. I used a straight edge and sharp scribe point tool. My marks may not come off for a long while, since I don't keep the thermometer in the oven, but if they do, I'm ready.

Five stars for adjustable accuracy, much better than the dial-type thermometers. Minus one for requiring adjustment on day one. I will deduct another star if my numbers wash off.

I just received my Taylor Oven Guide Thermometer. I wanted an accurate thermometer to check/verify various temperature settings in our 36" Wolf Gas oven.

The thermometer itself is simple and appears to be high quality. Upon checking the thermometer out further I noticed that the glass thermometer rod slides back and forth, left and right, on the stainless steel holder, thus accuracy goes right out the window perhaps by as much as + or - 15 degrees. What I did to correct this was hold the blue bulb end of the thermometer in boiling water and made adjustments until the blue line and the metal scale on the thermometer were aligned exactly at 212 degrees F (the boiling point of water). Next, without moving the glass rod, I locked it in place on the stainless steel scale with small dabs of high temp gasket cement on each end where the small rivets and holding bands are located.

Taylor Products: If you are reading this please make a note that the Taylor Oven Guide Thermometer has a manufacturing/design defect. The Taylor Oven Guide Thermometer with shipping was fairly expensive. The customer should not be expected to have to calibrate and then cement the glass tube to prevent sliding or back and forth movement in this type of thermometer.

If this thermometer came calibrated +/- .5 degrees and locked in I'd given it 5 stars.
