If you've noticed you have to consistently reduce or increase the baking or roasting time on recipes, it's probably time to check your oven's temperature. A difference of 5 or 10 degrees isn't likely to wreak havoc on your cakes or roasts, but 25 degrees or more could lead to recipe disaster. With a hook for hanging (ideal if you don't want to sacrifice rack space) and a base for standing, Taylor's Oven Thermometer makes verifying an oven's temperature easy. An oven thermometer can also help you identify hot spots in the oven. The large, color-coded dial is easier to read than other models we've used. But our favorite feature is definitely the hook. The thermometer reads temperature from 100 degrees to 600 degrees.
