You don’t have to be a candy-maker to appreciate this commercial candy thermometer. Can you use a candy thermometer for oil? Why, yes, you can, and for tempering chocolate; making sauces, custard or ice cream base; checking the crumb on baking bread; or making yogurt or cheese. Taylor’s digital deep fryer thermometer has a 9” stem to reach into deep pots and a pan clip to hold it there, an easy-to-read 1" LCD display, and a swivel head that you can adjust to see from any angle. A “hold” feature displays a constant readout when you’re at a critical juncture in a recipe, or the auto-off button conserves the thermometer’s LR44 battery when not in use. With a range between -40ºF and 500ºF, the thermometer can measure the temperature almost everything from frozen vodka to the smoke point of avocado oil.
