any one use a thermapen?
is it good for candy making?
is it worth it?
my meat thermometer is an antique analogue one that starts reading at 130 and says rare beef is 140
>also a kitchen gadget thread
I use the thermometer on the right for taking temperature measurements with reference to the housed one on the left; it can also be used for stirring
Love my thermapen but haven't used it for candy yet. I imagine it's not a bad choice, given that it'll give a read in under 3 seconds.
Best gadget right here though. Knife skills are important but a mandolin slicer will make some tedious tasks so easy
I use a thermometer where the probe is on a cord and can be put in the oven/pot for most things, a cheap candy thermometer for candy/deep frying, and an infrared thermometer for things like home brewing or poaching.
I have a cheap probe thermometer I bring to work, and could do pretty much every job.
yeah i used the hand guard
i also only used it to cut onions cause i hate cutting onions , it hurts my eyes
i'll have to try it again not for onions and without the hand guard.. i han't given up on it yet..
I have my eye on a thermapen for chocolate tempering and the such. But for candy making I use pic related.
