Candy thermometer recomendations?

geminigirl | Dec 11, 200804:48 PM     7

Mine is just ok...but I've had quite a few candy disasters (overcooking) and today a marshmallow disisater (overcooking) and in the past I've never had a problem with marshmallows...I'm thinking I need a more accurate, maybe didital (if those are better) thermometer. I'm willing to make an investment if it's worth it and can get me over this candy hump. Any suggestions regarding thermometers or what I may be doing incorrectly would be greatly appreciated. I have an electric stove if that makes a difference, I think it does for many things but not sure about candy making...thanks!
