You may have seen this kind of digital roasting thermometer—it has a metal sensor probe that’s attached to a digital readout. The probe stays in the roast while the readout stays outside the oven, allowing you to constantly monitor temperature changes. What’s different about this model from Component Design Northwest is that it comes with a metal clip that lets you attach the probe to the side of a saucepan or kettle for a new use as a candy or deep-frying thermometer. Because the readout is outside the pot, it’s much easier to see what’s going on than with a traditional glass and mercury thermometer.
