Thermometers for deep frying
Posted 15 November 2012 - 10:15 AM
My candy thermometer (steel, glass, mercury) handles temperatures up to 400 F:
Is there any reason I couldn't use a candy thermometer for deep frying? For that matter, what about my instant-read thermometer?
Common sense tells me that temperature is temperature, and that any cooking thermometer should work. If I'm wrong about that, I'd appreciate your input! Thanks.

Any cooking thermometer that can take the heat will work. Just be sure you have a steady hand.

I'm sure it depends on the color and refraction of the vessel..
But safe and works for me..
