Not accurate, water got inside

After washing these thermometers (I bought two) water droplets formed inside and ran downward to the sensing portion which caused the temperature to be inaccurate. It read as 170 degrees and would not get any higher. I cross checked with a digital thermometer and the wax was actually over 200 degrees.

First time in the candle making business. This thermometer was included in the pro candle making kit. So disappointed because it did not work at all. I panicked when I didn't see the temp go up while I was heating up the soy wax. I'm glad my husband had an old infrared thermometer in his toolbox or I would've ended up wasting money over this. I hope I can still get a replacement or refund.

Dont Like

I got this thermometer because my other one is kinda too big for my small pouring pitcher. I thought it would do good and ignored the reviews that said it didn't work. I should have not ignored them because sadly this one does not work. I could not get it to go any higher than 125. I used my other bigger thermometer and it's off by a lot.

Threw Both Away

I purchased two of these. One never read past 125F and the other was consistently low by 5 degrees F. I checked each with two different thermometers, both different brands, and they both confirmed each wasn't correct. I tried justifying using the one that was 5 degrees off but decided to get rid of it. Everything else I've purchased with Candle Science has been great except these thermometers. Not a huge deal, more inconvenienced than anything.

The thermometer shown here is not the thermometer that I received. When I originally bought the starter kit, it came with the thermometer in the picture, with the red cap on the end. That one works great.
I ordered two more recently, and the thermometers I received are terrible. They have no cap, so the clip can slide right off. The clip itself is made of much softer metal, and warps as soon as you try to adjust it. And, it doesn't sit well in the larger 4 pound pouring pitcher, so I can only use it in the small one pound pitcher.
Go to a bakery or restaurant supply store - at least you can see what you're buying.

Great thermometer!

I've tried many different thermometers and these are my favorite! They're very easy to read and stand up well in my pitchers!

I had a great deal of product wasted because of this thermometer. It gave an incorrect reading and it ruined 20 candles for me. My thermometer is new so it shouldn’t have been an issue. Totally disappointed

As one other reviewer mentioned here, I have a problem with liquid/steam getting inside of the thermometer so that I can't read the temperature. I have tried 2 of these now, with the same results. I also found the metal clip to be too loose/flimsy so I can't clip it to my double boiler, the thermometer just falls to the side. But for the price, you get what you pay for I guess.
