I started learning to make peanut brittle last year and I really enjoyed it (as did my friends and family), but the non-stick pot I was cooking in started to de-laminate from the excessive heat.
I know teflon is poisonous, and I don't want to make anyone sick.
Can some of you veteran candy makers tell me what kind of pot you find is best to cook your candy in? Also what kind of candy thermometer do you use? The one I got had some sharp edges that I think hastened the demise of my pot's surface.
Thanks so much, and happy candy-making!
