    • Does the thermometer have a clip so it can stay on the pot?
    • There is no clip for the pot but it does have a plastic cover that slides over the shaft. The cover has a clip that would hold it in a pocket.​

Basic it is Review by Chugchug

There is nothing fancy, just a "Basic Thermometer." If you don't need accuracy or long reach it will do a fine job.

Easier than what I was using. Review by BuckIrose

When I decided to make my own yogurt, I was using a candy thermometer -- something I already had. This is much easier to position and read.

Neutral Review by krayola

The thermometer works but disagrees with my other thermometers. I have two others that show to add starter at a lower temperature. I don't know which is most accurate. Also, the round top dial is very small and hard to read.

Response from CFH: Thermometers can be calibrated. Please contact Customer Support for advice or for replacements for defective products.
