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.
- Run warm water between 88-98F into a container deep enough to immerse both thermometers.
- Place thermometers in the water, check temperature readings once they have stabilized.
- If your new thermometer is not reading at the same temp as the medical thermometer, locate the nut found under the dial head.
- Using a wrench, turn the nut clockwise or counterclockwise as needed until the needle reads the same temperature as the medical thermometer.
- Repeat this process as needed.

I bought the Tel Tru Thermometer because I use an 8 qt. pot and its plenty long to reach into my milk as I'm cooking. I love that it's easier to read the numbers also. I love it and this is only my second batch of cheese I've made and one batch of buttermilk. All excellent tasting and rave reviews from those who have tried my cheese, thanks to your quality supplies and ingredients. Suzanne
an essential for cheese making
I have tried many different thermometers, a glass one which floated in the milk [I liked that!] but unfortunately it broke during the cheese making process!! Then there was one that had a timer attached to it which needed to be plugged into an outlet [too much trouble]. I don't know why I made so many detours until finally I purchased the tel-tru thermometer and it has been faithful and problem free. It is by far the best thermometer for cheese making.
Is very easy to read, dial is large, clip fits securely. I wish the probe was longer or even adjustable.
Works great! Love how quickly and accurately it measures temps. Definitely a good investment. <3
Very accurate thermometer with a long probe to reach milk level in a large pot. Would likely be too long if using less than a 2 gallon pot. I use it almost every day and love it!
