  1. Love the sound of that vanilla sugar Tandy! Now don’t block me, but I only use a meat probe thermometer and have never really had use for a candy one….I know, I really should!!! 😉 Jan x

  2. Tandy, I couldn’t survive without my digital thermometer – those old fashioned mercury ones remind me of the thermometers doctors used to stick under your tongue when checking for fever! 🙂 I don’t have an onion saver but I saw one like yours on sale recently and wondered if it might be a good way to save half a lemon in the fridge?

    • I am going to try the onion saver for my limes the next time I have half. The digital thermometer means more chocolate has been made at home than ever before 🙂

  3. Hi Tandy! Love using Vanilla powder mixed with confectioner’s sugar for dusting baked goods, it adds a lovely flavor. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  4. My candy thermometer is still good, but my digital thermometer bit the dust a while back. They are so handy and absolutely essential for best results in some recipes. Now I really think I neeed a GEFU.

  5. Candy thermometers like most cooking equipment probably are in the “get what you pay for category” Thanks for that as I am looking at purchasing one. Any spare onions I have go into the freezer for using when I make stock. Interested to hear how it pans out. Anything vanilla, yum!

    • Sadly, this was exactly the case with both the previous ones I bought. The onion pod worked quite well for an overnight storage option 🙂

  6. I have two candy thermometers that I have acquired along the way and apart from the retro packaging, I find them useless. I have a birthday coming up so have added a digital thermometer to the Pinterest board. I often keep 1/2 an onion – though I love them, they do not always agree with Mr Tiffin so I often have 1/2 an onion in the fridge for a day or so. I have a similar container (though from Tupperware) and find it handy. I occasionally store 1/2 a lemon or lime in it. cheers Fiona xx

  7. i use my onion pod often. i never thought i would have leftover onion but i do! i just throw the unused raw piece into the pod and it lasts for days. love the vanilla powder. we have the Queens factory near us; they make all the essences and vanilla pastes etc that every Aussie seems to use:)

    • How lucky you live so close to a vanilla factory! I have used the pod once and it worked perfectly 🙂

  8. Tandy you have just reminded me that I have something similar in my cupboard. I had a candy thermometer and it broke too. Like the look of the Gefu one you are using 🙂

  11. I recently blitzed up a vanilla bean in a coffee grinder, but I didn’t know that you could buy it! It smells delicious. I always just put cut onions in a container and in the fridge too. I love your thermometers!

  13. I have never owned a candy thermometer. Probably just as well otherwise I would be making far too many tempting naughties.
    Have a lovely day Tandy.

  14. I’ve never tried an onion pod but would really like too. It seems like a really good idea! Of course like you, I find we tend to use the whole onion so it doesn’t really need to get stored. I do need a candy thermometer though!

    • I finally used it a night ago, and it worked OK but I would not leave it in the fridge for more than a night 🙂
