1. I bought the Chef Alarm for roasting, but it has led me into candy making, including allowing me to revive some treasured family recipes that had been gathering dust. My neighbor now calls me the caramel meister.

    • Ken,

      That’s fantastic! I’m glad we could be a part of reviving your family traditions. Good cooking!

  2. Can I use my Dot for making maple syrup, 219°, or do I need a different probe to monitor temp.

    • Johanna,

      It is best to get both, but you can certainly use the ChefAlarm for both if you have it already. There are slight problems with the ChefAlarm for candy making, but it can certainly work…it’s just not the BEST.
