Re: Bung Thermometer
- Nothing easier. Does it have a calibration button?
Stick it in boiling water and it should read 100 degrees no matter how
vigorously it boils (and you dont touch the bottom of the saucepan). So
long as it's at sea level or close to. You chuck a few ice blocks in a
small amount of water until it is as cold as you can get it, i.e. ice
lasts a long time in the water or a water slurry from the freezer
prepared earlier, and that should be zero (or damn close).

Yup the Dick Smith thing... The one that came with the still doesn't
have a name on it (but it can't be right). DS is gotta be nearer the
mark... surely it's gonna be hard to determine temps in boiling
water ?? I'll give it a go and see what it says...
