Directions

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.

Go bigger if you can

I also got with a kit. Like everyone else said about draw backs I totally agree. It maybe good if you're not sure if you want to really get into cheese making. I have bought their ladle and I pop it into one of the holes which helps get in the deep pot a month later I discovered that I can pop it into a steam hole in the lid of my pan that holds 1 gallon of milk. That being said really needs to be bigger and easier to read especially for us that ware glasses. So until I can get a longer one I will suffer a little longer. Really like this site great things reasonably price.

hard to read

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.

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).

Helpful

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.
