Beware CDN Candy Thermometer
As you are all aware, I have been on a candy craze recently (soon, taffy). I had purchased a CDN NSF "Proline" thermometer to use as a candy thermometer. It promises to be waterproof, shatterproof, etc. etc. Well, I never dropped it, but it sure does leak. I have contacted the company to see if they live up to their five year warranty. In the meantime, I have bought a simple "bulb" candy thermometer (it sort of looks like you could use it on a elephant if it had a fever and if you were real careful). I saw a beautiful dial model from OXO, but it stated that you needed 2 1/2" of liquid in the bottom of the pot for an accurate read, which is not always practical when making candy.
