Very clever, GG! I like to use the digital thermometer for easier reading even though I have a candy/frying thermometer.

LOL - VERY cleaver GG! Not only would MacGyver be impressed - you might also be able to get a part-time job in the IMF (Impossible Mission Force) lab! Or, maybe compete to replace Agent 99's spot as a smarter sidekick for CONTROL's top Agent 86?

Most candy/fry thermometers are "clip on". You can get these all kinds of places - KMart, Target (WalMart used to carry them - so did my Albertsons grocery store) ... to high-end places like Williams Sanoma, etc.

If you want to take your talents and transform that hack-saw blade to a thermometer clip - here's a picture ...

I clip a small one of these to the side of the pan and putting my instant read thermometer probe through one of the handles into the liquid.

Yeah, I got the idea from Alton Brown.

Well, that's cool ... I thought about it, but I was afraid the plastic might melt against the pot. I guess not Thanks.

G'Garlic, I've never seen a binder clip that has any plastic on it. Any I have are made out of metal.

The clips Andy M. was talking about are all metal ... no plastic in them.

Unfortunately, now you will only be able to hack saw around corners.

The ones I have are meant for office use, so they're part plastic. I'll look for metal ones.
