    To Recalibrate:

    Since the cheese making process happens at temperatures similar to our healthy body temperatures, a good quality medical thermometer can be used to calibrate your new thermometer, since they tend to be extremely accurate for this short range.
    1. Run some warm water to between 88-98F into a container deep enough to immerse both thermometers and place thermometers in the water.
    2. Read both thermometers once they have stabilized.
    3. If your new thermometer is not reading at the same temp as the medical thermometer,  locate the nut found under the dial head.
    4. Using a wrench, turn the nut clockwise or counterclockwise as needed until the needle on reads the same temperature as the medical thermometer.
    5. Your good to go!!! Repeat this procedure every 2 months or as needed.

    Perfect Little Thermometer

    This is a perfect thermometer for smaller batches, especially 1/2 gallon sized things like yogurt, ricotta, etc. It fits perfectly on the smaller pots without protruding out like longer thermometers.


    • short stem great price
    • Haven't had a problem with it yet!

    New Thermometer

    I love having a thermometer I don't have to hold till the steam makes it too hot and lurch around with a pot holder. I love the short stem, as I am making some mini-batches of cheese and this is great - no scraping the bottom of the pan! Nice price too!


    • Quality
    • There is an 8" I'd like to see sold here

    Worth every penny!

    I had tried a half dozen thermometers before I purchased this. Wow! What a difference. The font on the thermometer is so much easier to read than those I had previously purchased. The clip on the side is wonderful. It can be adjusted so you're able to put the probe as deep or shallow as needed. Less mess. Hands free is a good thing!



    Very accurate

    Fast response with good accuracy

    Easy to read

    Love this thermometer! The numbers are big enough to see without using my reading glasses! It works great and the clip is very good at keeping the thermometer from falling into the pot. No more thermometer fishing yes ! I just wish it came in an 8" stem.
