Is there a thermometer that can be used to check dryer temperature, and if so, what kind should be used? Should only a multimeter be used on the dryer's thermostat instead? I'm just wanting to doublecheck that a dryer is heating to proper temperature. I would like to know if there is one that can be used both on a dryer and a stove, like maybe a thermometer that is just used for appliance repair.
I expect people repairing appliances either use
- a k-type thermocouple attached to a suitable multimeter.
- a thermometer specific to the type of appliance.
The key factors are probably temperature range, accuracy and the mechanical details.
