This is a wonderful thermometer made from the highest-quality stainless steel. The 5" stem is equipped with a clip to keep the dial where you can see it easily at the side of the cooking pot. The large two-inch dial is great for quick temperature checking. We use this both for cheesemaking, and for homebrewing beer. This is the thermometer the pros use because of its accuracy and durability. Tel-Tru is known as one of the world's premier thermometer manufacturers. Proudly manufactured in the USA. * 2" Dial * 5" Stem * 0/220 Degrees F Temp.

Solid construction, nice big dial and easy to use. What's not to love?

Seems pretty accurate to me.

I read the other review so I checked the one I bought and it seemed pretty spot on to me. but it was good advice to check! I like how it hangs on the pot.

Good, but double check!

We have purchased a couple of these thermometers and they are excellent/convenient to use. We did find that on BOTH (purchased at different times) that we needed to test them against a digital thermometer to calibrate them for accuracy or boiling water. One was off by 10 degrees and the other by 5 degrees. <br /><br />You can find out if you need to add/subtract what is shown on the dial by boiling water... should show 212 degrees F. (100 degrees C). Once that minor issue is taken care of, they are excellent to work with. We used two, one for the pot of water, and one for the cheese pot, to monitor temperatures.
