I'm finally buying a thermometer for the oven and stove top. I've read that Thermapen and Maverick both make good thermometers. I've also read that most thermometers tend to become less accurate over time and that glass thermometers are to be avoided at all costs. Any thoughts on the two brands? Any recs for other high quality and reliable brands? I have no problem spending money on this as I plan to use the thermometer for at least a decade if not more. Finally, is it better to get a separate thermometer for the oven versus the stovetop or can one do the both well? Thanks!
Actually I need a thermometer soon to make caramel for a dessert I'm hoping to try soon. I've read getting the right temperature for this caramel is somehow important.
