Easy to do just dip it in hot water .

if it opens it good , you could even use a thermostat to test heat of water and determine the exact temperature it opens at , if your so inclined .

if it opens its good enough for me .

if not try for new and used thermostats here 

You can also test the temperature sensor fitted to the cylinder head
