The hourglass timer was used on ships as early as the 11th century as a way of measuring time and speed at sea, which was one of the first reusable, dependable and reasonably accurate methods of measuring time. In the 16th century, the sand hourglass was used in churches to measure sermon lengths and in factories to calculate time for manufacturing procedures. Later it was used within the culinary industry to measure baking and cooking times. Here you are viewing is a Classic Desk Decor Square Sand Hourglass. The sand hourglass is an enduring and beautiful work of art that will provide a silent, accurate, and unobtrusive channel of time. This sand hourglass counts up to 5 minutes. Watching the thin strands of sand create much the same effect as watching the flames of a warm fire. Also this 5 minutes hourglass can be used as a decoration in your home. Beautiful and useful, this sand hourglass can give you more than you paid!

    Sand Hourglass

    Introduction:

    5 minutes Hourglass

    • An hourglass (sandglass, sand timer, sand clock, egg timer) measures the passage of a few minutes or an hour of time. It has two connected vertical glass bulbs allowing a regulated trickle of material from the top to the bottom. Once the top bulb is empty, it can be inverted to begin timing again. The name hourglass comes from historically common hour timing. Factors affecting the time measured include the amount of sand, the bulb size, the neck width, and the sand quality. Alternatives to sand are powdered eggshell and powdered marble. (Sources disagree on the best material.) Modernly, hourglasses are ornamental or used when an approximate measure suffices, as in egg timers for cooking or for board games

    Modern practical uses:

    • While they are no longer widely used for keeping time, some institutions do maintain them. Both houses of the Australian Parliament use three hourglasses to time certain procedures, such as divisions
    • The sandglass is still widely used as the kitchen egg timer; for cooking eggs, a three minute timer is typical. Hence the name "egg timer" for three minute hourglasses. Egg timers are sold widely as souvenirs

    Package Included:

    • 1 x Hourglass

00:00:00 01-03-2011 cute timer Overall:  
  • Other Thoughts: This timer is very cute and looks like a sand timer. It works very well as a timer. I have not been able to get the clock feature to work but I bought it as a timer, and it works.

00:00:00 12-21-2010 A MUST HAVE FOR EVERY KITCHEN Overall:  
  • Other Thoughts: This is exactly what i was looking for. You can get any generic egg timer, but this one is digital and when flipped is a clock or a timer. Either setting to count down your time for your cookies with beeper, or start timing (how long has the turkey been in for?) dinner! This is the best little timer, a must have for every kitchen!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

00:00:00 12-10-2010 Useful, colorful, and eye-catching! Overall:  
  • Other Thoughts: I purchased this timer as a "time-out" timer for my daughter. I have it set on 5 minutes and I just hit start and the digital sand starts going. When 5 minutes is up, it flashes red and has a light beeping sound to alert both me and my daughter when time-out is over. Watching the digital sand fall keeps her busy for a few minutes and she knows she needs to wait for the light to flash and sound to beep and then she's free again. <br/> <br/>With just a few sessions with this clock she's learned what a "time-out" is! It's awesome! <br/> <br/>Then I just flip it over and it becomes a a clock.

00:00:00 11-16-2010 cute and durable Overall:  
  • Other Thoughts: I got this because my partner loves all things red, and because we're always losing our kitchen timer. This one sits on the counter, so you don't have to worry about the magnet falling off the fridge (which happens alot with our other timers). It works fine and has lasted for over a year now, so I'm happy.

00:00:00 11-09-2010 Pretty Good Overall:  
  • Other Thoughts: This timer works pretty well so far. It is a little hard to see through the thick curved plastic as mentioned in some other reviews but since I am usually within a couple feet of it, I can just reach over and see it up close. It does everything it is suposed to and has even withstood numerous accidental (and a few not so accidental!) falls from my son's bedside table. He loves that you can flip it over for the time and back for the timer and I love that it has sand icons that show him approximately how much time is left, just like a real sand timer would!

00:00:00 10-20-2010 I highly recommend Overall:  
  • Other Thoughts: My sister-in-law has a kitchen with red accents and she likes modern, funky things, so when I discovered this, I figured I would give it a try....When it came, I was a bit disappointed because it looked more plastic than it did in the picture, but still, for the price, looked like a cool gift. She loves it - she uses it daily and says she has never had a problem...I've never seen another one like it and it has some really cool features I didn't know about when I bought it - the clock is cool and she likes how it continues to keep the time even when it has gone off, so she knows how long it's been done if she misses it for some reason.... A great and unique gift!

00:00:00 09-06-2010 coolest timer ever! Overall:  
  • Other Thoughts: I (the wife, not Randy) bought the red one for a shower gift for a bride who's kitchen colors are red, white, & chrome. I'm sure she will love it. I got the white one as a gift at Christmas and absolutely love it! The digital sand effect is fun and I keep it on the shelf above the sink to use as a digital clock, then just flip it over to run the timer. A great plus is that it doesn't use expensive watch batteries like many do so it won't cost much to replace them when they need to be replaced. Mine is still running on the original battery. A great conversation piece and a cute addition to any kitchen!
