These are the two thermometers I use the most. I like the digital for its quick read times they are both about 6 inches long. Again, I know they are not long enough to reach into my mash/boil but a gentle stir and a sample of temp in a few spots gives me good results!

The "Fermometer" is stuck to my primary(with my Saturday Stout in it).
My thermometers were about 7 or 8 bucks, I can't remember, and the fermometer was about 3 bucks at one of my LHBS.
(nice thing about Portland, OR is there are at least 6 LHBS's within about 25 miles from me)!

Fermometers are not the most accurate but they give you a pretty good idea where your beer's temp is at. I usually check the temps about every other day or so since the volume of liquid in the fermentors can take a few days to acclimate to room temp. Although I notice a 3 or 4 degree increase while active fermentation is happening.
