I'm kinda over the top when it comes to thermometers. Somewhere in my storage unit I have a Thermapen, dairy thermometers, meat thermometers, candy thermometers, cheap food service thermometers....and I have been without these tools for three months now. It has been very interesting going through this withdrawal. The thing that saves me is most of my "cooking" does not require a thermometer ( I do a lot of salads, grilled sandwiches and eating out). I really miss my Thermapen though.
