How to Test Your Thermo for Accuracy
 
This is from the ThermoWorks website...

Many people want to test their thermometer’s accuracy in boiling water. BUT, water boils at different temperatures depending on altitude and barometric pressure. Use this easy calculator to check the correct temperature of boiling water for your location under current conditions.

Here is a link to their boiling point calculator...

http://thermoworks.com/software/bpcalc.html

I just ran the calculator. It says, "In your city, water currently boils at: 202.96 degrees F.

5,003 feet of elevation here!

What is the current boiling point of water in your city?

That's neat

I'm currently at 211.93* here in Nor. Cal.

Must not work in Canada I get an unbeliveable 270.31F so the pressure at 100.1 kPa must be the culprit

Ha! I'm at 39! Water boils at 212.27....man I was way off.

smooookin 03-03-2010 09:46 PM

blackdog043 03-03-2010 10:56 PM

210.56 thats cool, didn't know it changed

211.02 here at the current barometric pressure.

Let's just be honest here.

Red Thermapens never need to be checked.

Doesn't work upside down either.. it says boiling point will be 383 F. Not exactly a reliable tool.
