Yeah welshonion, thought I'd do that, test it in boiling water, it may well be reading wrong, I make yogurt and that doesn't seem to get to right temperature with it now that I've thought about it, a pointless buy then!
I read in a few recipes to put small amount of butter to take the scum off, it worked and didnt effect taste but probably don't need it then. Been looking on internet for jars in case i make some good enough to give away! Don't know how long it will last without going mouldy, I just put a circle of baking parchment inside, don't know if its supposed to be special paper.
Love it in Wales Welshonion, stayed in a cottage near Conwy recently, went near to south west coast last year, visit Wales few times a year.
