Chocolate Tempering Thermometer

Can anyone suggest a store in the Scarborough/Markham area where they sell chocolate tempering thermometers? If not, the GTA? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  1. I would try Williams-Sonoma.

    1. I would try Kitchen Stuff Plus; they had a variety of cooking thermometers for great prices the last time I went.

      Scarborough location is at 29 William Kitchen Road (Kennedy & 401)

      1. You want one that will measure down to 20 degrees Celsius which rules out most of the candy thermometers. I'm taking a chocolate class right now and did some research recently. The Thermapen is what everyone raves about, but it costs a fortune ($100!). There were other positive comments online about CDN ProAccurate thermometers. I ended up buying the model that's on a rope ($35).

        Degrees Kitchen Store ( near Yonge and Eglinton carries both of the above.

        1. re: gnuf

          Thanks guys for the help. Gnuf, this chocolate class you are taking, is it part of a larger program? I would like to take some classes myself; if you can give me some info it would be great.

          1. re: Harry Singh

            I'm taking it at George Brown College. The class is one of a few chocolate and confectionary continuing education classes they offer which are part of the Bakery Arts program.

        2. I bought a decent probe thermometer at Lee Valley (which is very east Toronto, Sheppard and Morningside) they have other models you can check out on the website.

            There's now a Lee Valley store on King near Spadina, and it is very easy to order via phone or net.

              Good to know, but I live very east of the city so, Scarborough is not a problem for me. Thanks!

          2. I just saw this one online at Golda's Kitchen.
            They are at Heartland Town Centre in Mississauga.
