i use it as a candy term instead of as a fry therm, it is a good design however i found the glass too delicate, after making soft ball candy if you set it down to work, without washing it right away, the glass and the candy just stick, picking it up the thin thin glass broke. would not reorder.

I purchased two of these to supplement my Taylor candy thermometer I purchased in 1985 and which still works great today. The design of these sold here is different, with the addition of the yellow ball on top of the clip and the plastic yellow cap at the top of the unit. The markings on this one here are harder to read than my old one, and when I washed the thermometer, water leaked into the glass tubing. This was very evident by the moisture condensation that develops within minutes of washing drying it. The only thing I can think of as to why it leaks water into the thermometer is that with the addition of the yellow plastic 'cap' on the top end, the glass tube is flat on that end, unlike my old thermometer which is one whole piece of glass and has no cap on the top end, but rather is rounded on the top (no seam). I was thrilled to see this type of Taylor candy thermometer still available, which is why I purchase two of them. However, due to the fact that the design allows water to enter the thermometer upon washing, I would NOT recommend this product to other purchasers. Taylor, a long-time thermometer maker, needs to address this issue. As I wrote previously, the candy thermometer that I purchased in 1985 STILL works great today (calibration seems to be right on) and there is no way for water to leak into the unit due to the glass being one solid piece with no seams. I will definitely continue to handle my old one with extreme care!

Used this thermometer to deep fry Boston Cream Donuts. It worked great, easy to read, the clip was sturdy yet easy to remove from the pan. Great value for your money!
