Q: An it be used in candy making?
A: Hi Nancy, We recommend an actual candy/deep fry thermometer which is longer and goes to a higher temperature. The stem on the 1" instant read dial is not very long so it depends on the pan being used and it only goes up to 220F, while most candy recipes require higher temperatures. Good news is that Target does carry a Target candy/deep fry thermometer so please take a look at that item. Thanks!submitted byLifetime Brands, Inc. - 17 days agoBrand expert
