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.

This thermometer fits well into my 5-quart pot and is extremely easy to read with its large face.
This thermometer is so helpful with its large face and lines. There are more lines to designate the degrees, which helps precision. I've had others that I've had to hold, and which the degree on the face are not clear, so I felt like I was guessing. I also enjoy having the ability to clip it to the pan, protecting my wrist from heat and freeing my hand to do more important things.
I have used this thermometer a few times now and am quite happy with it. It seems accurate and have had success with the cheeses I have made when using it.
This thermometer has been a good choice. I use it when making cheese, yogurt, or anything really.
