Re: honey candy makers (need help)
Stainless steel sauce pans are tricky to use when making candy. Even with thick bottoms, candy thermometers, and constant stirring, one can easily burn the candy.
We have two old 4 liter pressure canning saucepans that are thick aluminum. They work very well to make candy with.
300F is an upper end high temp and we only use 300F to make a hard rock candy.
Fudge = 230F
Toffee(moderately soft) = 242F
Candy temp for your location depends on altitude and actual thermometer(they very slightly).
