Using a Thermocouple as a Candy Thermometer
A high temperature thermocouple is capable of measuring temperatures up to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit or even hotter. While these units have such a wide temperature range, they are still inexpensive, and many people can use them at home for accurate temperature measuring for anything from the temperature of their engine to the temperature of the oven. One fun use for a high temperature thermocouple is as a modified candy thermometer. Using a thermocouple is often more accurate than real candy or kitchen thermometers, which will help you produce perfect candy every time.
