Bought it for making maple syrup. But while it's sitting in the pot of boiling sap it's hard to read. It either came with some amount of moisture inside the glass or some leaked in some how, because there appears condesation on the inside which obscures the viewing of the thermometer! This makes it pretty well useless which makes it a bad buy, a waste of money. I want to get a digital one for next season.
However, I'm going to see how it does for deep frying.
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!
Sorry mom, those days of guessing exactly how much longer until the syrup is done are over...ever since I got my first (and only) candy thermometer.
The Polder 510 Glass Candy thermometer does the job perfectly...I have used it for candy & tempering chocolate. I would give it 5 stars, except that the clip makes it stick directly against the wall or base of the pan, confusing the reading. I lost my thermometer during the move and found it a couple weeks later...I messed up a batch of chocolates because I tempered it by guessing.
These thermometers aren't expensive...if you've never used one before, give it a try (I don't think you'll be disappointed).
