Easy to use and set the timer just by turning it over.
Janet M Wheeland
I will probably buy a few more to give to friends as nearly everyone who sees it wants one!

The alarm is loud enough to hear from out of the room.

Yeah, yeah, I know. How much effort can it save when you can set the timer on your stove nearly as fast? But this thing is uber-cool. Just turn it so the desired time is facing up and it begins to flash and you're off.

The complaints are minor:
1) It's never easy to see the LCD window that shows you how long you've got since it's a) small and b) always in an awkward position.
2) The alarm sounds just like my alarm clock. That's never good.

As soon as you pick it up you realize how it works: There's a metal ball bearing inside that makes contact with two points and begins a preset timer based on which side is up. It's simple and absolutely brilliant and makes everything from cooking to laundry just a little easier.

We ordered this on the recommendation of a speech therapist that was speaking on Executive Function of the brain. The idea is to help your child learn the feeling of how long it takes to complete things. It's also useful in limiting video game or computer time.

If you want to set it to the 30 minute timer, you simply turn the "30" to be at the top of the cube. What I really like is that it doesn't tick or have any other noise going on as the time goes by. When the time is up, it starts beeping until you turn it to the side with the zero on top.

My son, who has ADHD, has found it useful just to get started on homework which is a big plus. I say, "Just do 15 minutes of math now and then you can take a 45 minute break." He seems to get most of it done and then usually goes ahead and finishes before taking his break. Sometimes just getting started is the really hard part for him. He's a teen, so for younger children with the same problem, I might use the 5 min side.

We also use it for him to spend 5 minutes on picking up his room everyday. It keeps his room from becoming such a disaster area by the weekend when the heavy duty cleaning happens.

I really like to use this for myself when I want to take a break from work and relax, read, or surf the net. It keeps me from overdoing it.

Likewise, I can use this for a fast 5 minutes of cleaning on a certain room. The timer helps me focus in on what will make the biggest difference.

CONS: I, too, wish it had a 10 minute side, but a quick flip to zero and then back to 5 does work.

Since this timer does not easily allow you to see how many minutes are left, so it doesn't work for some things. I hardly ever use the 60 minutes and I haven't used it for cooking.

I am ordering two more for different parts of the house such as the office and the family/kitchen area. It's also nice that the price has decreased a couple of dollars.

This is an extremely cool little device, but with one big flaw for me: the alarm is a really shrill, jarring sound, like a smoke alarm. Other than that, I love it. I just wish they could make it with a different alarm option. I'd use it so much more often if I didn't have to hear that alarm every time!

This is so darn easy to use and hear from other rooms and the cellar as well. My intent was not for use in cooking/baking, it was more along Pavlov's salivating dog theory. I live with 6 special needs' adopted Greyhounds and they get a mid-day snack of a large Milkbone every day. Because Greys are massively 'routine oriented', if I need to feed them breakfast earlier than usual in the event I have to leave the house for some reason, they are 'ready' for their 'midday snack' earlier than normal as well. I have used this timer to train them that when the buzzer goes off midday (1130-12noon), it IS snack time. If I'm not home when 'snack time' should be happening, I set the timer when I come home allowing for 5-10 minutes to get my act together and then, when the buzzer goes off, they come flying to the kitchen, line up and wait for their snack. Ok, so they wiggle and squirm and sing a little because I'm late but they know when the buzzer sounds, they need to FALL IN! FRONT AND CENTER. They are smart enough to know when the buzzer sounds in the AM and PM it is full meal bowl time as well. I love this thing. Before training them with this, just the sound of the stainless steel bowls clanking together would bring them running to the kitchen, even if I was just washing them and putting them in the drainer. Now, they know nothing spectacular is happening until they hear the buzzer and I have the small kitchen area to myself in preparing their food, measuring their individual meds, crushing pills and just all out preparing their individual meals without a pack of hungry dogs underfoot.

This can be used to time computer time if families need to share a computer, shower time if you have teenagers who run the hot water out, sprinklers watering the lawn (sooo easy to forget), idling the car in winter time, etc. A few AAA batteries and your life is so much easier. Give this one a try. I think you'll like it.

It's a wonderful little gadget. If...it didn't break right away. And I've been VERY gentle with it.

Ticked. I need the 15 minute side more than any other, for cleaning.
