Instant Read Digital Cooking Thermometer
I am really loving this thermometer, the more I use it the more I love it. My husband uses it for cooking all the meats, bbq, smoking, and whatever else he wants to play with it on. Now that Christmas is upon us, I got to use this for my candy I make.
It seems like every year a batch of candy gets thrown in the garbage because the glass thermometer broke and since we have no idea where whatever was made that day, unless of course we noticed it on the last batch, we throw away a lot. Which if you make candy like I do, once a year, it is already a big job then having to remake it does not help the stress levels.
I was pretty impressed that I could use this on both meat and candy – all the years I have made candy I never seen one that would do both. With most of the candy you have to be pretty careful and I always check it the old-fashioned way, putting it in a glass of water to see how it forms. I know I am getting old to keep using the old stand by but it works every time.
Desiree is a huge help this time of year, she loves to make the candy and eat the candy! We make 4 or 5 different rock candies, 3 – 4 flavors of fudge, buckeyes, and a ton more. She loves to roll the buckeyes out for me and last year I let her start dipping them. After we are done we take it to family gatherings and give it to friends so we do not have to eat it all.
The case to go over the probe is perfect, no more pokes in the drawers. I have to say that this is a really nice thermometer for all of our needs. It only weighs 1.6 ounces so it is light.
This thermometer gives me the reading instantly so I do not have to wait for it to slowly rise. So far compared to my old-fashioned method it is accurate and everything has turned out delicious! No wasted batches of fudge not getting firm, or rock candy that is not hard, I am sure we all have nightmares in the kitchen so we won’t go into those! LOL
I love the extra long probe so now I can even let Desiree check the temperature because if you have ever made rock candy you do not want that on your fingers. This measures 11 inches so lots of room.
I received this product to give my honest opinion. Do you make candy this time of year?
