I wanted it to make toffee, which needs to reach around 305 F. The one we got worked pretty well until it got to around 250 F, slowly increasing to point to around 270 F - and then not rising above that, no matter how hot the sugar got.
The first time I tried it, I noticed that the toffee started getting really dark and the thermometer was stuck at 270. The second time, I used another (different model) thermometer for comparison. While the other thermometer had reached 310, this one was still at 270 F. The toffee was indeed around 310, as when I emptied it onto the tray it was a dark caramel color and it was the right toffee consistency. I uploaded a graph showing the real temperature vs the temperature read by this thermometer (see under customer images).
I was sad that this thermometer didn't work.
Yhe way it's built, that hot milk "skim" gets underneath the glass thermometer and is a royal PITA to clean out. If I were using it for candy making, it would be an even worse hassle to pry out crystallized candy. I usually end up letting it soak, and then prying and picking at it with my fingernails, for fear some will remain and contaminate the next batch.
The metal edges are also unexpectedly sharp, and I'm just waiting for the inevitable moment I get cut trying to clean it.
What would be really cool for a thermometer this large would be if the bottom were spoon shaped, so you could both stir and take the temp at the same time, instead of having to stir around this monster. 4 stars for accuracy, which is, of course, the point of any thermometer, but I myself would not buy one again, and am already looking for a replacement.
July 17 update -- I contacted Polder and said the thermometer was off by several degrees, so they sent me a new one. This one registered too high! I had both Polder thermometers and my digital thermometer in one pot of water. At temperatures below 150, the readings on the Polder thermometers differed by 15 degrees! Once the temperature reached 180 on the digital thermometer, the replacement one tracked the digital one pretty well. But the original one I bought registered low by about 6 degrees.
I think I'll try a Wilton one again. Eventually the numbers wear off, but at least it is accurate!
