If unable to get a proper laboratory item, look for a 'candy thermometer'.  Goto homeware stores, or online.  They goto higher temps (than 110), are larger and less flimsy, and are totally encased with glass and have this 'bitchin little slidable clip thing' that is cool.

Problem with the candy ones is they only give the temp. outside the flask.

if you get a candy thermometer don't be too vigorous when wiping the end clean or..snap!!...this is more an expose of idiocy than a warning...swij had a bad morning with glass...first he popped the end off his thermometer then he snapped the bottom off of his beautifull seperatory funnel...don't know his own strength
