Taylor Kitchen Thermometer Dial Cover

Fortunately, it didn’t fall off into the roasting pan:

The lens slides right out of that nicely curved and crimped housing, the rim ID of which should be slightly smaller than the lens OD. But it ain’t and I definitely can’t crimp it any further.

Three small dabs of clear epoxy and it should be good forever more…

It’s a simpler replacement for the digital thermometer, when continuous monitoring isn’t needed. I thought it’d be more durable, but … no.

    We’ve had good luck with the CDN cooking thermometer from the local restaurant supply outfit (open to the public, thanks to no sales tax in Oregon). The candy thermometer is a Taylor, listed as dishwasher-safe, but is rather old. (Maybe 30-40 years…) It has a glass cover, with a bezel holding the glass tight to the body. Of course, the need for a 400F thermometer is limited in the household, but it’s too good to toss.
