candy thermometer-other uses?

I am purchasing my very first (awww) candy thermometer today, and I was curious as to whether I could use it as a general thermometer as well? Or is it specifically for candies?
Ex: when heating oil, can i use it to detect the temperature of that as well?
Many thanks!
