If you plan to make the Fish and Chips recipe from Fine Cooking #118, you’ll need a deep-fry thermometer to monitor the temperature of your frying oil. Also useful for candy-making, these thermometers are designed to handle higher temperatures than regular instant-read thermometers.

Here are three models we love:

The Polder digital in-oven thermometer is a versatile probe thermometer for roasting that can also act as a deep-fry and candy thermometer or a grill thermometer. It comes with a clip to secure the probe to the side of the pot.

The Taylor classic candy and deep-fry analog thermometer is a favorite here in the Fine Cooking test kitchen. The numbers are clear and large, and a clip secures it to the side of the pot. We find it durable and accurate.

The Maverick CT-03 digital oil and candy thermometer has a pot clip, a large, adjustable digital screen, and a steam shield so you can clearly read the numbers.
