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.
Would NOT buy this brand again. Can't imagine what this would of done with anything hotter than boiling water.
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!

Works pretty well though glass gets steamed up and its hard to read the temp. But it has not been a big deal....Published 5 months ago by Amanda W

I use this to make candies, to make sure I don't have the water to hot for yeast when making bread. I like that this one had the clip on it to be able to clip it when needed.Published 5 months ago by Bluegirlrosereviews
