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.

Tel Tru Thermometer

The clasp is so flimsy it would not hold the thermometer in the pot. Fell out multiple times in a few minutes - finally hit the floor and broke. It didn't make it through the first batch of yogurt. It would be okay for large pots probably. The smaller thermometer was too small; this one obviously too large.

We are so sorry to hear about the broken thermometer. It sounds like the 5" thermometer will be a better fit for your pot, that's the size we use for yogurt and small batches of soft cheese. We'll send out a replacement 5" thermometer for you right away. If there is anything else we can help you with please let us know.

Easy to Read Thermometer

Easy to read. The clip holds the thermometer firmly in place. I probably would get the longer one because accurate reading line was above my milk level.

Tell-True 12" thermometer

so far it is the best I have had. It is long enough for large vats, the display is clear and it has a clip to secure it to the vat.
