Topic: thermometers (9 msgs / 109 lines)
1) From: Bob Crafton
Hi all,
I'm a homeroast newbie, and I'm roasting using an air popper.  I want to add
a thermometer to my popcorn pumper as shown in Kenneth David's book, but I
can't seem to find one anywhere.  I've tried all the local supermarkets, as
well as Wal-Mart, K-Mart, and Ames but none have anything suitable.  Can
anyone suggest a store or even an online source?
thanks,
Bob Crafton

Bob,
You can order one from sweetmarias but you may have trouble locating it on
the web site. If you can't find it, just email them directly and say that
you want a thermometer included with your next order. It costs about $6.50
as I recall.

You could also try looking for these types of thermometers at restaurant
supply stores. They are commonly used by restaurant chefs for testing the
temperature of meat.

Try a store that sells grilling supplies (Home Depot, Lowes, a hardware
store, etc). I use the thermometer that came with my Weber grill--it
measures from about 140 to 600 degrees F.

Anyone use a digital thermometer? If so, where did you buy it? I have been searching for one that goes up to 500 degrees F but I haven't seen anything over 395.
Thank,

Try McMaster-Carr.  If they don't have it, you don't need it.

Item #38285K28 - Flat head (rectangular) thermometer, -58F to 500F.  6" stem, $25.70.
However, this particular style of thermometer updates the readings only every 10 seconds. The round style updates every 1 second, but only go up to 450F with a 5" stem.  I think a 10 second update is way too slow for roasting.
Personally, you may be better off with item# 4101K31 which is a 2" dial, 8" stem bimetal thermometer.  I have the 50F to 500F temp range model and it works great.  Accurate and easy to read.  The longer stem is a plus.  About $30.

That is an incredible website. They really do have *everything*. Their first
page is a bit overwhelming, actually...
