DTQ-450X CDN Proaccurate ® NSF ® Quick-Read™ Digital Thermometer

A quality thermometer is the most important tool in every chocolatier's kitchen. Working at the correct temperature is essential to creating high quality chocolate confections. Think of it like baking a cake - it will never turn out right if you set your oven to the wrong temperature. Using a chocolate thermometer is the only way to ensure that your creations will have the proper snap, sheen, finish, texture, and flavor.

Digital probe thermometers are one of the most popular options for casual home-hobbyists and other non-professional chocolate lovers. With the accurate, easy to read digital temperature readings, technologically advanced features, and increased durability, a digital probe thermometer is an essential step-up for anyone serious about making incredible chocolate confections with greater ease.

Most candy making thermometers don't go low enough for chocolate, but this one does, making it a wise choice for all types of handmade candy and chocolate creations.

How to Recalibrate Your Digital Thermometer

2. Press the CAL button for 2 seconds. The display will be blank for 2 seconds. Release the CAL button and 32.0°F/0°C appears.

To avoid accidental recalibration, this function only works when the water temperature is 30 to 34°F/-1 to +1°C. ERR will appear for 2 seconds if the water is not within this range and then return to the temperature display mode.

Clean the thermometer stem before each use.

For ALL packages addressed to a P.O. Box or a U.S. Military address (APO/FPO) and for an economical alternative on lightweight packages being delivered to any U.S. address, Chocoley offers UPS SurePost, a service where UPS picks up and transports the package as part of their UPS Ground service and then hands the package off to the U.S. Postal Service for the last leg of the journey. This service typically takes one day longer than UPS Ground service and Neither UPS or the USPS guarantee delivery times.

Hot Weather Shipping

If your order is being shipped to a location 78° F or warmer (or if it is warmer than 78° in Alpharetta, GA, typically April - October, where this item will be shipping from) we highly recommend that you add an Insulated Cold Pack, based on the weight of chocolate in your order, to ensure your chocolate doesn't melt while in transit. The large Insulated Cold Pack Shipper chills up to 30 lb of chocolate, so, multiple Case orders would require one large Insulated Cold Pack Shipper per 30 lb Case.

If it is currently necessary to add a cold-pack in order to protect your chocolate from melting you will be given the option to add an insulated cold pack from $4.95 to $8.95 at checkout, or you may choose to accept full responsibility for any melting that occurs in transit and decline this option. (Please note: No returns of melted chocolate will be accepted if an insulated cold-pack is recommended for your order and you decline).
