Rather than guessing how much to raise or lower the heat for a particular recipe, bake and roast with precision using a highly accurate oven thermometer like the Taylor Oven Guide. Made from durable, heavy-duty stainless steel, this mercury-free thermometer measures temperatures from 100 to 600 degrees Fahrenheit. The large, easy-to-read face also provides a heating zone guide. Dishwasher-safe, this thermometer can hang in the oven or stand alone. It's NSF listed for food hygiene and safety. --Mary Park

Three stars are given b/c it is not a perfect object and for the life of me, simply cannot find a way to adjust the glass bar which appears to be clamped on so tightly that it's worrisome to try and adjust for fear of breakage. That being said, it is not the most expensive object either. But now, having tried to calibrate the two different types of oven thermometers, at least two out of four are available to use.
Did not know they should not be kept in the ovens at all times, so appreciate that tip. Also, have not tried to clean off the spots since others noted the markings come off. Just wiped a bit carefully with a paper towel after submersion into boiling water.
Bottom line is this: all ovens lie; ask any professional cook. We all need an oven thermometer to be certain, but, with so many inaccuracies, how are we to know and how often do we need to test? While it is entirely frustrating and time-consuming to have to deal with this issue, it is a necessary evil in my opinion. It is important and this appears to be the best way to learn the most accurate temperature.
A simple request: is there anyone out there who can make a reliable, guaranteed oven thermometer for a reasonable price?
* Ademtior Kitchen Oven Thermometer http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003EDY97U
* Taylor Oven Guide Thermometer http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00004XSCA
* Rubbermaid Commercial Stainless Steel Oven Monitoring Thermometer http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005KDEIZ0
* Taylor TruTemp Oven Dial Thermometer (from BedBath&Beyond)
I tested these over a range of temperatures from 300 to 450 degrees F on separate ocasions, allowing the oven and the thermometers to completely cool between tests. Right away I noticed that the Rubbermaid and TruTemp models were junk. Both of these thermometers read anywhere from 20 to 50 degrees off from the other two. They were also slower to adjust temperature, meaning that once the oven was preheated and the other thermometers displayed the temperature, both the Rubbermaid and TruTemp thermometers continued to adjust their readouts.
The Taylor Oven Guide thermometer was off by about 15 degrees at each temperature setting (compared to the Ademitor and my oven setting, but since the readout was consistently 15 degrees off at all temperatures, it’s clear that this resulted from a misaligned glass tube. Fortunately, this is easily adjustable simply by sliding the tube to the left or right as necessary.
Between the Ademitor and the Taylor Oven Guide, I think the Ademitor is slightly easier to read but the base is a bit too small, making it easy to fall through the oven rack. The Oven Guide has a much wider base so it stands up nicely.
The divisions of the scale of the thermometer are supposed to be accurately calibrated to measure temperature, by the manufacturer. Since the fluid in the thermometer doesn't age it should always stay accurate over time. The thermometer is easy to read. I needed to wash the thermometer in soap and water with a pad, and did not find that the markings washed off.
After a few uses, one does not need it anymore.
