I love this thermometer for my candle making! It is easy to read and use. And very strong for something thats glass. I droped it on accident and kicked under the stove. And it did not crack or break!

This deep-fry thermometer, despite its cheap price, is extremely well-made and sturdy. I haven't encountered a significant problem with the holding pin. I needed a deep-fry thermometer to make fried breads, and this one does the job perfectly. It holds onto the side of frying pan and stays there during the whole frying process, letting me know the oil temperature at any moment!

This thermometer may look like the one your mother had, but it isn't. The numbers are IMPOSSIBLE to read, and the clip is of cheap, thin metal. About to throw away, but now I have to pay to get rid of it because it's got mercury. If only it was the real thing, I might be able to keep it for forty years like the one my mother had. Pity.

The first rime I used this thermometer was to fry chicken, about 350 degrees. In the middle of cooking I noticed the thermometer filling with oil. It had broken at the bottom near the tip. I wouldn't buy this product again.

This was good and useful as long as it lasted. I have used it about 4-5 times while frying.

Last time I used it..the thermometer just snapped at the base where the mercury bulb attaches to the glass tube. Luckily the mercury did not spill out. I guess at its price it gave me enough service.

I bought this for my daughters science project. We used it once for boiling water and it broke down at the bottom next to the heating element.
Would NOT buy this brand again. Can't imagine what this would of done with anything hotter than boiling water.

Had one of these thermometers before. Could not find another one in stores. Excellent because it is enclosed. Don't buy one with a removable top because when you try to clean it and it gets wet inside and it will fog up the next time you use it & you can't read it even when you think it is dry. I bought two.

I use this thermometer for heating milk for making yogurt. I didn't want to spend a lot of money and I am happy with this purchase. The temperature reading seems very accurate, as my yogurt always turns out great.

The pot clip is definitely weak. I prop the thermometer in place with a clothespin on each side and lightly string a hair rubber band from one clothespin to the other, to hold the thermometer in place so it doesn't keel over into the milk or slip down too far. I don't know if my method would work for deep frying or candy-making.

I wonder if the complaints of breakage during use are because their thermometer slips down and makes contact with the bottom of the pan? You should keep the tip of the thermometer slightly above the bottom of the pan. Also, I would advise to not put the thermometer suddenly into very hot oil or syrup, put it in while everything is cold and let them heat up together.

If I used it more frequently or for lots of candy-making, I would probably invest in a more heavy-duty model.

I paid less than 2 dollars and free shipping for this in 2008 and it is now 2012. I use this thermometer once or twice a month. I kept the original package and slip the thermometer inside for some protection before putting it in a drawer where it doesn't get knocked around much. I think I've gotten my money's worth!
