For accurate readings, make sure the thermometer stem tip does not touch the bottom of the pan. Adjust the pan clip to the correct positioning and clip to the edge of the pan. The bottom of the steal housing can rest on the bottom of the pan. Separated Fluid: Sometimes the red fluid inside the thermometer may separate and must be reunited before use. Remove the thermometer from the card and gently tap the bulb end of the thermometer against the palm of your hand. Pause in between taps to permit the liquid to rejoin. Continue until there is no longer separation in the fluid. Cleaning and Care: Handwash only. Do not immerse in water or put in dishwasher. If the thermometer does not clean easily, soak overnight in dish soap.
