Speaking of thermometers, i'm looking for metal probe ones, around 30 cm long and clip on to pots, etc. Anyone know a good one?

I don't know where one would get them outside the U.S., but I use one of these Thermoworks probe thermometers for homebrewing beer and I'm pretty happy with how it works.

Teledog:
Have a few generic IR gun thermometers and a tiny "laser pointer style" unit for travel.
They get trashed with boiling oil/dropping them, etc. .. would never spend more than $25 on one.
I use them for "ballpark" temps + - 5 to 10 degrees.
The emissivity DOES make a difference, with an opaque product or just plain boiling water.. and on an induction range, they sometimes go wonky.
I like to use the IR units for the ballpark temp, then if need be, a probe thermometer (preferably NSF rated & easily calibrated)
