This extra long deep frying thermometer is traditionally used for deep frying a turkey in a big deep pot outside. Most turkey frying sets come with one, but they are often lost. Replace yours or get a backup extra long thermometer for safe hot oil or grease cooking. This 12" stainless steel thermometer goes from 100 degrees to 750 degrees. It has an excellent large stainless clip for attaching to your pot. The easy-to-read dial has a red hazardous area for extra safety.
