One of my biggest pet peeves is that, while there are talking thermometers, most do not go high enough for several types of candy. They're fine for things like fudge. As I recall, most of them only go up to around 242 or 250.

So you DO hear the boiling. I will have to listen for this the next time I boil water. Not that I do it often. Are there talking candy thermometers for candy? I haven't made candy in over 10 years but I remember impatiently waiting for the thermometer to rise to the correct temperature. Everyone here always seems so competent and independent that I never think about how you do things or how you might not be able to do something.
