Oven Thermometer

Where can you find an accurate oven thermometer. I have bought different ones from Walmart and Target. When I test them,there is a hundred degree different between them. So would anyone know a good oven thermometer? Thank You

I hope you kept the receipts.

The one that Andy linked to up there is the best you can get. It's 100 to 600 degrees which is about the only range you would ever need in a residential oven. Another alternative, since the Taylor can be a bit hard to read, is the Universal Enterprises dial thermometer. Their range is 200-550 but they're definitely reliable.
