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.

Great thermometer, accurate, and easy to read. I have nothing negative to say about this thermometer but one minor thing and it’s not a negative more just information. When your using the thermometer on smaller pots and have the pot edge holder located in the middle, or further down, it has a tendency to fall off the pot. Not a problem just an FYI.

Great for those of us with older eyes.

I love the large face in this thermometer. It’s accurate and easy to read, even without my reading glasses.

Nice big dial

I had been using tiny little thermometers and this is a great up-grade. I have only used it a couple of times so I don't know about it's longevity, but so far I'm very happy with it. I don't have bad eye sight or anything...this is just really handy to look over and easily see the temp without having to move right up to the pan. I bought the one with the short stem, I'm thinking about getting the long stem one as well.
