I don't think a thermometer is absolutely necessary once you've gotten the hang of pulling good microfoam. I generally gauge temp now by feeling the pitcher--when it's almost too hot to touch for a full second I kill the steam and then withdraw the pitcher. I don't pour great latte art but the texture & temp are always spot-on.

That's what I meant. When I started out I used a thermometer and learned what the right pitcher temperatures for stretching and frothing felt like against my free hand.
