I also found that for some steamer cups (small ones like the 12oz) do not facilitate clipping. Some cups with curled sides also make it a bit difficult.
the device itself was well worth the purchase though - I love the fast and apparently accurate reading. Aug 6, 2013
The thermometer can also be used to measure cooking temperatures, but you would remove the sheath for this purpose This little gizmo will give you a very quick reading -hence the name.
In case you build guitars, the thermometer does double-duty as a temperature probe for steam-bending acoustic guitar sides. I always brew the latte first and then wait for my guitar wood to get hot enough for easy bending.. Aug 5, 2013
The pitcher itself has the holder with a small hole in it that the thermometer fits into.

Thanks for writing in! This thermometer is a little more accurate because it is quicker to register the temperature than the dial ones.
Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any other questions.

Caring for the ProAccurate Quick-Read Thermometer
Rinse with warm water and soap after every use.
Documented poor reliabilityReview by Corey Olson
Quality Price Value
The calibrating function is known to stop working on these. Surprise surprise, it doesn't work on mine and I've had it less than a year. They have a 5 year warranty, but who wants to spend $5-8 more to ship it off for "repair or replacement" while also being with out a thermometer while you sit and wait.
Bottom line is, if you buy one of these it comes with a trip to the post office, and the excitement of finding yourself shopping for another thermometer.
Search the forums and you'll see this is a common issue.

Analog to digital transitionReview by 3Twenty Wine Lounge
Quality Value Price
I really like the product. If you purchase it, there is one word of caution to note: This product has a much faster response time than the analog thermometers. With analog thermometers, I would kill the steam at 125 and the temperature would creep up to 145. Here, you have to kill the temperature at around 135-140.
More control is a good thing. It's easy to use and easy to clean.
