Collaborating with the Michelin star chef, Heston Blumenthal was a case of combining Salter’s precision, excellence and integrity with Heston’s own incredible credentials and creating a range of ten kitchen essentials good enough for any chef. The Heston Blumenthal precision by Salter Digital Gourmet Confectionery Thermometer is the simplest way of assessing the temperature of sweets and sauces, with preset temperatures and a temperature range of -40 degrees celcius to 230 degrees celcuis. Intuitive technology means the thermometer beeps and flashes when the desired temperature is approaching and again when the temperature is reached, ensuring even a distracted cook cannot spoil her sweets. The easy to grip silicone handles and adjustable silicone coated clip attaches to jugs, pans and containers without scratching the cookwear finish; making it a baker’s new best friend, and the large display and tilting dial makes the thermometer easy to read at any angle.

Having recently bought an oven thermometer that was 50 degrees centigrade in error I was looking for something that was accurate. I recently watched a video with Heston cooking and saw that he used this thermometer, and with his attention to detail was pretty sure it would be accurate.
I did a simple test using boiling water and this thermometer recorded 99.8 degrees centigrade, this is quite exceptional accuracy for a modern thermometer.
As a mechanical engineer I specialised in thermodynamics and am appalled by the ludicrous thermometers on sale today, they give a totally inaccurate reading to 2 places of decimals!!!!!
Some of the comments have complained that their thermometers failed very early in its use, I can see no reason why this thermometer should not last if give a modicum of care.
If you want an accurate thermometer with a good temperature range that is very easy to use I can thoroughly recommend it.
This gadget looks good, has a clear display and was great for measuring things like the temperature of the fridge, which stays the same.
It has a clip on the probe so that you can attach it to the side of a pan.
For chocolate, it was a disaster.
It's very slow to calibrate, taking about a 30 seconds for the temperature reading to settle down.
This is fine if your temperature is not changing, but I was trying to heat the mix up 42C- the slowness of the readout meant that I often overshot, and had to start the process all over again.
The clip was no help at all, and I ended up having to hold the probe in the mix with one hand and whisk with the other.
Result: It got covered with chocolate.
In trying to clean it, I got water into it- and it has now died after its maiden voyage.
May it rest in peace, I won't be replacing it.
Definitely not recommended.
We have found it very easy to use so far.
To perhaps address a couple of reviews I've read on here.
One mentioned it kept turning off after 5 mins when measuring a low temp. Two things spring to my mind, one that saves the battery next it's not really the ideal thermometer for preparing cold products.
Another mentions you can't wash it. Well that goes for them all. Another has said it broke on them, well thats why it has a guarantee for goodness sake, get it changed.
It's helped us massively with a few Jamie Oliver Fore Rib of Beef recipes (Sorry Heston)
Finally been able to make both fudge, toffee and cinder toffee..! Worth it just for that.
This lasted longer than any of the traditional style sugar thermometers I've tried before but died a death when it fell in the sink. Shouldn't it be waterproof?
