Default I learned a valuable lesson yesterday

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?

Default Oh well

Chaulk it up to experience and buy a new one. Keep the old one as emergency backup. Hope the hand doesn't hurt too bad.

Put in the oven at 200 degrees until the condensation evaporates. Never tried it with a thermometer, but it did work on my cell phone that went swimming......

If you have a gas oven with a pilot, you don't even need to turn it on.

My hand is fine. I'll try heating it up and see what happens.
