No more burned cakes from a timer that couldn't be heard in the next room. This Count Down Up Big Digit Kitchen Timer not only has an extra-loud alarm but extra-big digits, so you can read it from afar.Easy to use, the useful kitchen timer simply has a start/stop button and two buttons for minutes and seconds. The count kitchen timer counts either up or down, so it can be used as a stopwatch. You will love this count kitchen timer. And this small digital clock/timer is useful in counting down cooking time, timing circuit training exercises, or tracking paint or wood glue drying time.Great for the kitchen, workout room, or home shop.
Other Thoughts:Over the years, I have had many timers in all price ranges; none have been as nice as this one. It is easy to set, easy to read, easy to carry around! With my advancing age, I need to keep track of time that my memory can not longer help me with, so a portable timer is necessary! I especially use it when I am in the sewing room and have something on the stove, which I have forgotten more than once and burned up a couple of pans. I worry about burning my house down! No more worries now, if I just remember to take this little gem with me. Highly recommended!
Other Thoughts:I found it useful and intuitive with basic count up/down functionality. It's light, the magnetic backing seems solid, and the display/buttons are comfortably large. It's kind of loud if you're standing right next to it but I don't mind it since I need to be able to hear from other rooms.
<br/>The only downside is that on occasion when I need to set it for longer, like 90 minutes, it's mildly annoying. Holding the "M" minutes button will trigger the automatic counter which is fast, but it painfully increments by one and makes a beep at every number.
Other Thoughts:I bought this for my son to time his reading homework (read 30 min per day). It remembers the 30 minutes so he just pushes the button to start and push the button to stop once the alarm sounds.
