Dear 'Chocolate Lifers,'
I was hoping to get some advice on using a digital thermometer with induction cooktops. I have tried both a probe type (Maverick CT-03 Oil and Candy Thermometer) and a cable type (Thermoworks Chefalarm) thermometer and, neither appears to give consistent readings. I tested both of them in a pot of boiling water and noticed that the readings of each thermometer fluctuated by several degrees depending on the power setting. I am assuming that the magnetic field from the cooktop is affecting the digital thermomers? So, are there any digital thermometers that can work with induction cooktops? Or, should I just go back to a hot cooktop? I've considered the old style glass thermometers but, find it hard to read and not as precise as digital ones.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
