Q: What do I do if I break it and the liquid leaks out? How do you suggest cleaning? Is it mercury? Thank you!

submitted by How to clean - 9 months ago
  • A: The Taylor candy thermometer is a non-mercury thermometer. The tube should not break under normal conditions. Be sure to let the thermometer cool completely before cleaning. The liquid is alcohol based and can be cleaned with normal countertop cleaners.

Q: does the print (temps) on the thermometer wash off like my old Taylor candy thermometer?

submitted by jjcreech - 2 years ago
  • A: Taylor suggests using a damp cloth and carefully cleaning or spot cleaning the thermometer. Hard scrubbing and hot water is not recommended. Any additional questions, please reach back out. Thanks!

Don’t try to use this on meat, the bottom is so wide it destroys the meat. Good for candy I’m sure. The appearance of my meatloaf makes it unfit to be served on a table. Jody

Do Not Recommend - 1 month ago, Verified purchaser
I do not recommend this product. When I opened the package to use it, I noticed that the red temperature line was broken (split) so would not provide an accurate reading. I tried everything to get the fluid line to rejoin but nothing worked. I am going to return this and look for a digital thermometer. Don't waste your money.

I mean it is a thermometer... it does that job... tells me the temperature of things I put it in. Would recommend if you too need to know the temperature of things food-related.

10° off

Would not recommend
almostevelyn - 10 months ago, Verified purchaser
This thermometer new out of the box registered a good 10° off from actual temperature. For some that might be acceptable but if you are candy making as the thermometer advertises it is for, then every degree counts and these should be properly calibrated. Hoping Target will accept this return as a faulty item.

Doesn't Read Temp Accurately

ewallin - 11 months ago, Verified purchaser
This Thermometer Is Completely Inaccurate. I Tested It Against My Usual Go To Candy Thermometer And They Were Reading 10 Degrees Apart. The Liquid Wasn't Separated, So I'm Not Sure What Would Have Caused That Much Disparity. Returning.

KAS - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
This is a great item for a beginner making candy. It is mostly easy to read. If you choose to buy this item try to purchase a thermometer that is no breaks in the gauge. Ours had several breaks; the company did print what you should try to do to fix the breaks should they happen, which seems ti be the norm. The thermometer we purchased us several breaks; my husband tried fixing it for 2 days without success. I tried using the hot water method and broke the thermometer. For me, I will purchase a next purchase digital candy thermometer.

Red Fluid disaster

Would not recommend
Kmpls - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
Pay attention to the instructions about separating red fluid. I had 2 thin separated lines of it which I didn’t notice until making the candy. Ruined the candy. Tapped the thermometer intermittently for 20 minutes afterwards trying to get it to merge. No go. This thing is defective. Going back. Cannot recommend.

I purchased this to use for deep frying as I was tired of cleaning my deep fryer and it never really got clean and always seemed gunky. I am now using a round dutch oven and this thermometer and so far so good. Easy to wipe clean and the handle has not melted.

I’m really glad I read all the food thermometer reviews and decided to go old school. If it doesn’t need batteries, it’s less likely to stop working, and I love the clip and the temperature markings for different purposes.
