Step 1: Check for accuracy Check the thermometer for accuracy by clipping it to a pan filled with water. After the water has boiled for 10 minutes, the thermometer should read 212 degrees. Tip If the reading is not 212 degrees, figure the difference for the correct temperature. Step 2: Follow candy recipe Follow a candy recipe as directed. Mix ingredients to a boil. Step 3: Clip on thermometer Clip the thermometer to the side of the pan. The thermometer bulb should not touch the bottom of the pan. Step 4: Cook to desired temperature Read the thermometer at eye level and cook the candy to the desired temperature. Step 5: Remove from stove Remove the pan from the stove when it reaches the desired temperature. Continue with the candy recipe. Carefully remove the thermometer and let it cool before washing.
