Gets some starts for being a thermometer

From:
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).

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

hard to read

Pros:
  • price
Cons:
  • hard to read
  • no pot clip
From:
got this in our mozzarella kit. this is not a good thermometer for the precision temperatures needed - it's very hard to read the temperatures necessary for the mozzarella kit with the ticks at 4 degrees apart. it also doesn't have a clip to hold it to the side of your pot (and is kinda short for a deep pot besides). We ended up using an instant read digital one we have (which I believe is an earlier model equivalent of a ThermoWorks RT600B or RT600C).



The ThermoWorks RT600B is $20 and goes high enough to triple-task as a meat and frying/candy thermometer, so that's what I'd recommend instead.

From: Central VA
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.
