When your dial thermometer falls into your cooler filled with 170 degree water dont reach in with your hand and attempt to retrieve it.
My hand was in past the wrist before I was reminded why not to do this.
My dial thermometer, the ones with the long stem, now has condensation on the inside of the glass. The unit it pretty much sealed. I would ruin it trying to take it apart to clean the inside.
Anyone have any ideas?
