    DESCRIPTION: With an easy to read dial that ranges from 0-220F (-20-100C), this is a great economical dairy thermometer for making cheese at home.

    DETAILS: 1-1/2" Dial Head Pocket Thermometer, S/S stem with storage sleeve.

    TO CLEAN: Wash stem only in hot, soapy water after use and sanitize well before use.

    HOW-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.

    Good starter thermometer

    Good starter thermometer but opt for the more expensive one for the most accurate results.



    Gets some starts for being a thermometer

    It works as a thermometer, but has not been useful for my cheese making adventures. It's slow to respond and difficult to read (tiny dial).

    This is a helpful thermometer to have, but I find it can be hard to read because the face is so small and the Fahrenheit is marked every 20 degrees with 4 degree increments between. It's easier to use the Celsius on this thermometer.
