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 thermometer.

  1. Run warm water between 88-98F into a container deep enough to immerse both thermometers.
  2. Place thermometers in the water, check temperature readings 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 reads the same temperature as the medical thermometer.
  5. Repeat this process as needed.

Not Going to Break

After having had a series of glass floating thermometers for making cheese, I took the dive and switched to the metal instant-read thermometer. Originally I was concerned that it would not clip on to the variety of pans which I use for cheese making - but I needn't have worried. It clips on three different pans, gives a quick read (and accurate, based on two other thermometers) and was easy to read as well. I can see I'll be using this unit for years to come in my cheesemaking.
