1.0 out of 5 stars Shameful..., 23 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Heston Blumenthal Precision Digital Confectionary Thermometer (Kitchen & Home)
As others have said, the ball has really been dropped with this item.

Ruined two batches of "clear candy" despite careful preparation, caramelization was occurring well below the hard-crack temperature. Decided to "calibrate" the thermometer in the spout of a boiling kettle (exactly 100C) and it read only 90C, so clearly it's well out of whack.

AVOID!!

a kettle with some pure water will boil at 100 °C only with 1 bar pressure (at sea level). In the mountains water boils at 70-80 °C, it depends by the altitude.

Besides, the water vapour from the spout of a kettle will not be at 100 C anyway.

Er, in this universe, at sea-level, it will be.

What number were you thinking of out of interest?!
