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.
Really nice and sturdy. I like that you don't have to clip it to the side of the pan. The tip of the thermometer doesn't go all the way to the bottom so you can just lay it in there propped up, not clipped.
Note - this thermometer is large - at least 12" long - so it may be too large if intended to only ever be used in tiny pots or 1 c. batches of caramel.
Warning: Do not forget to check the temperature when heading oil. I did and the temperature rose higher than should have been allowed. The result: when the temperature dropped, the red fluid parted into three sections, which made it useless. The second one that I ordered has received better care.
I love the fact that it is dishwasher safe - yeah! And the glass is gaurded by the stainless steel housing - nice.
The 2 things that I would criticize are (1) the clip on the back that holds it to the pot is not as sturdy as I'd like. It holds it to the pot once it's adjusted, yes, but it will pop off if tugged and does not slide up & down very well. and (2) the thermometer itself sits a good 1/2 inch off the bottom of the pot making it sit above the ingredients I'm trying to cook. I solved this problem by quickly doubling the recipie... but i would recommend considering the size of your pot related to the amount of ingredients and whether or not the base of the thermometer is immersed before you put it on the burner. :)
Here are the pros & cons:
* Sturdy & seemingly well made of thick stainless steel
* Has both Farenheit and Celsius readings
* Features "shortcut" readings along the temperature gage, such as "thread", "soft ball", "soft crack", "hard ball", "deep fry", etc. to help with cooking
* Due to placement of the pot clip, it will not work if your pot is under 8" high (ie. small saucepans, etc.)
* Thermometer takes several minutes to reach desired temperature
So, while I don't plan to use this thermometer more than infrequently, I do recommend a purchase.
