Baking Greats - great bakers and the Thermapen®

Edd Kimber: The talented 2010 winner of BBC’s The Great British Bake Off is a big fan of the SuperFast Thermapen®. Edd, who has worked at Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir and who's first cookbook The Boy Who Bakes was published in September 2011, says...

“The Thermapen is a really handy gadget for all chefs whether they use it for everyday baking, to make sure that cakes and sponges are done without being dried out, or for something a little more technically demanding.

"I totally rely on my Thermapen because it’s absolutely crucial that I get an accurate and speedy temperature reading for many of the recipes that I work with. My speciality is Macarons, which are beautiful but notoriously tricky treats to make; relying on cooked sugar syrup where the temperature must be exact. The Thermapen is perfect for baking these deliciously delicate delights."

Ruth Clemens: food writer, blogger, chef and Runner up on The Great British Bake-off 2010 says...

"There’s one bit of kit in the kitchen I use time and time again and it’s a Superfast Thermapen digital thermometer.  I ended up with one of these after smashing three of my regular thermometers."

"The Superfast Thermapen retails at £57.60 and really are a great bit of kit to have, I love mine, it has definitely been worth the investment."

"Thermometers are really useful for all sorts of recipes – jam making, sugar syrups and tempering chocolate if you’re feeling adventurous."
