I'm pleased with the quality of the thermometer and I like the marks on it for each type of candy: hard ball, soft ball, hard crack, etc - nice touch. But we were making candy in smaller batches and since the actual thermometer is glass, the glass piece is protected by a metal guard to prevent it from resting on the bottom of the pan. This meant the thermometer was barely under the surface of the candy mixture. That said it still worked just fine and the clip on the back kept it securely attached to the small saucepan we were using. I only worried at first when there was a mark on the thermometer indicating that it should be immersed by at least an inch into the mixture and we were nowhere near close to it. But like I said, it still worked fine.

This thermometer works exactly as I hoped it would. I use it with my stove top deep fryer and I am very pleased with it. Solid construction, easy to store, it's perfect for my use. It has a metal clip on the back that'll fit solidly attached to a pot, but I doubt it will attach to an electric deep fryer. I like that this is a low-tech device so I don't have to waste batteries etc. The handle is nice and large for safe handling.

I have lost track of how many candy thermometers I have purchased over the years. My favorite was probably the digital one with a metal corded probe but I just couldn't afford to replace it as it was very expensive. The cheaper ones I have tried don't last very long. This seemed to be a good next step up. It's very sturdy and won't break (easily) when tossed in our 'junk' drawer. It seemed to be very accurate. I like that the tip doesn't touch the bottom of the pan.

I live in a 55 and older community...and it seems everyoe loves fudge. So...when I have time (my wife and I are the "teeny-boppers" of the community) I whip up several batches and distribute it among friends and neighbors. The online recipies work now and my fudge is much in demand! What a difference from my mushy, gooey, sludgy failure fudge. I'm a pro now. I credit it all to this candy thermometer.

I use this to keep an eye on the temperature of oil for frying. I believe the readings are accurate but I can confirm my results are consistent. It clips well to a 5 qt cast iron Dutch oven. Bring your temp up slowly and give time for the thermometer to settle before readjusting.

Love that you can put this product in the dishwasher! Also, if you read the back of the package the company guarantees the product for life. All you have to do is mail it back to them and they will fix/replace it!

I bought this to use when I make Italian buttercream frosting, which requires the sugar to reach 120C. The tip of this thermometer is too high up and doesn't reach the level I need it to in order to get a temperature reading. Also, it come with no cover which means I have a loose glass thermometer in my baking drawer.

This item works fine, but the only real value to this brand over some others is the bottom of the thermometer can make contact with the pot without cracking, or throwing off the temperature. The clip is of no real use. You will still need to hold it by hand to really use it.
