Put the thermometer in the kettle. Have a glass candy thermometer, with a clip and go ahead and clip it to the inside of the kettle. Watch the candy thermometer carefully as the temperature climbs to the temp setting of your thermostat. Now watch for the thermostat to open when it reaches the correct temperature. (i.e. 180 degrees thermostat should open at 180 degrees on the candy thermometer.) Carefully remove the thermostat with metal tongs so not to get burned. Recycle the thermostat if it does not open at the correct temperature. Now throw in some yummy vegies and you have Thermostat soup. Enjoy. Quote Link to comment
