What is the real difference between a dairy thermometer and a candy thermometer? I know dairy one has capacity to read temperature till 220 and a candy thermometer can read till 400 or so. So, can we use candy thermometer where dairy thermometer is required. I have both. Just want to know the diff. thanks
