Thermostat for steam, best?

Honeywell got it right with this one. Excellent for steam.

    Thermostat for steam, best?

    I recently replaced an older mercury switch honeywell with a newer digital honeywell, the round type. From a bronzed color one to a round white one. I had the anticipator on the old one that worked well. If the Thermostat was set to 70 degrees when it dipped below that it would kick the heat on. I had the anticipator set to the highest level so it would stay on a few degrees past 70.
    Now with the new one, I set the dip switches for steam heat and the differential is working both ways around the set mark. It waits until its like 67 or 68 to kick on and then stays on till like 72. I am not happy with it. Any ideas on a newer thermostat that would do what my old one did? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Kind of miss my old thermostat.

    We keep one model of thermostat in stock and have had great luck with them. The HONEYWELL VISIONPro 8000. Available at plumbing supply only. Excellent for steam, and everything else!

    How about cycle rate? Is that adjustable? I notice the chronotherm has that feature, does the 8000? ed
