I'd appreciate any recommendations. Thanks!
The best is the Chef Alarm from Thermaworks. You will get the best price by ordering it directly from them. Right now they are having an "open box" sale on their Thermapen--which you wouldn't use for the purposes you named---but the best instant read out there.
Pierino, do you know if Thermapen makes a thermo that clips on to the pan? I have Thermapen but it's not really a candy thermo, since I need to clip it to the pan.
Yes the Thermaworks Chef Alarm has a clip for that reason.
Wow, I have a Thermapen chef alarm and never knew I could clip it on the pan! Thanks.
Thanks for the recommendation. I got the Chef alarm, and it works really well. I appreciate your advice.
By the way, did I see that you're coming out with a cookbook? I'd like to hear more about that.
The title of my cookbook is Malavida! But until the agent I've been working with finds a home for it the less said the better.
I Iook forward to the more said the better re. the book.
Thanks! Will check this out. Wish the Thermoworks wasn't so expensive -- but having something reliable and durable might be worth it.

I've used this simple Taylor one for years for jam and candy with great success.
Sturdy, accurate, inexpensive.
If yogurt requires the same temp range, you might consider it.
I have aThermapen. I guess I can check the website for confirmation but can I use it for frying, candy and jam?
