Temperature is a key ingredient for creating consistently perfect sweet treats. From caramel and jam to honeycomb and chocolate, precise temperatures are essential. And even professional bakers can't guess them. With super fast and accurate readings, the Thermapen digital sugar thermometer is your secret weapon to taking your sugar work to the next level.
Analogue vs digital sugar thermometers
Analogue thermometers have long been a traditional and budget-friendly choice for home bakers, but they're rarely up to the task of providing the speed, accuracy and precision needed for sugary creations. The Thermapen ONE digital sugar thermometer features accurate one-second readings, a simple and hygienic design, and it's built to last. Unlike traditional sugar thermometers, Thermapens are designed to perfect more than just baking; they're ideal for anything from Sunday roasts to summer BBQs.
