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.

This thermometer has been a good choice. I use it when making cheese, yogurt, or anything really.

Best Thermometer ever

I love this thermometer. I wish I would have bought it a lot sooner. It fits perfectly in my pot if I have 1 gallon of milk or 4 gallons of milk to make cheese. I highly recommend it.

Works great

The thermometer is accurate and the clip grips the edge of the pan nicely. We needed the longer probe for our bigger batches. It works very well for those.
