Most important is that once you pass 30 minutes, you can only set it in intervals of 5 minutes. 32 or 33 minutes? Sorry, out of luck...you have to go to 35-40-45, etc. This is a serious limitation for me.
It does count up after the beep if it is not turned off. This is good.
And it has a nice, upright stance with a weighted bottom that make it easy to see, and it has a solid feel.
Basically, the timer is designed to track up to 4 different items on your stove. The display will indicate which burners you are timing. In addition to using the timer this way, I have used it in other ways as well. For example, if I have 2 things in the oven for different lengths of time, I can set the timer to keep track of each of these seperately. The display will even alert you to which item will be the next to be done.
Additionally, there is a convenient 'batch' mode that allows you to push one button and the previous timed amount is displayed. This is very useful for baking cookies. For example, if you have a batch in for 10 minutes, when that batch is done, you only have to push one button and you are ready to put in another batch for 10 min.
The timer is solidly built but not too heavy. I carry it around the house with me when I am baking so I will hear when it goes off. The stainless steel version of the timer looks great in my kitchen.
I have used my timer for several months and have even ordered and given away several more of these as gifts to my friends who like to cook.
First, it's solid. It's easily the most solid feeling kitchen timer I've used. It has a nice weight to it and feels like it could take some rough handling. The dial could definitely be easier to move around, but I'll take too hard instead of too easy any day.
It has 4 timers which are easy to select, change, start and stop. You can also force one of the timers to always display, no matter what timer is currently selected. That comes in handy for sure.
My three complaints are this: First, the dial that you use to set the time increments time based on the speed that you spin the dial and the amount of time you're adding. So, if you're starting at zero it will go: 0, 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 15, 25, etc. If you go slower it will give you a smaller increment, and if you go faster it will give you larger increments. It's a nice and completely necessary feature if you're adding time with a dial, but I'm having one heck of a time getting used to it. I keep running past my desired time and then coming back very slowly to it. Maybe I'll get better at it after some more time with it.
My second complaint is that there are two ways to stop the timer and they operate different ways. If you hit the large mute button on the top, it kills the timer and zeros out the time. If you click the reset button in the middle of the front panel it kills the timer and resets the time back to its original setting. I really wish they both reset it back to the original time.Read more ›
But if you are a timer user as I am, than this is the one to get. The designer of this timer obviously cooked, and cooked meals complex enough where all four burners plus the stove were in use. Since most kitchen stoves have an oven timer that is taken care of. This timer is designed to correlate each of the four timers with a specific burner on your stove. The outer knob lets you select the timer you want to deal with. I say deal with because you can set time, add time, reduce time, or stop timing with the simple rotation of dial. No pushing of buttons. The display displays two of the timers at a time, and graphically indicates which timers are displayed. The star shaped start button has four little green LEDs to indicate which timers are active, and they turn red when the timers have timed out.
You can tell at glance, what is going on. The audio signal is loud enough without blasting you out of the kitchen, and when you are not cooking the timer is an attractive counter top clock.
Nothing is perfect, nor is this timer. Because it is vertical, for a small footprint, it does not provide an ideal view of the face. I found it convenient to set my timer between the raised edge of the sink and the wall at a slight angle which provides a good view for me.
