Product Description

This unique Kitchen Tape Timer by Kikkerland is a modern way to keep time while cooking and baking. Shaped like a tape measure, this timer can be set up to 60 minutes. Simply lift the pull ring to go from 0 to 60 minutes and watch time pass as the tape decreases. This handy timer measure minutes, not inches, but you'll have fun with it nonetheless. An easy dial on the bottom allows you to bring tape measure down. Design by Jospeh Forakis.

I have only owned this product for a week, however it appears to work nicely. The best part of this timer is its design. Everyone who has seen it loves it.

One note about functionality: To operate this timer, you have to pull the "tape" all the way out (60 mins) then you use an adjustment wheel on the bottom to retract it to the time you want. The unit will only work if operated this way. I did not find this to be a negative, but it is a bit more work than you would expect just from looking at it.

I like this thing, and so does my partner (really excited when it showed up). I have a little concern with how well it will last because the rollback wheel on the bottom (that one uses to set the time) feels a little cheap. My main concern is that it's not intuitive. Out of habit I find myself trying to adjust the time back down by pushing the tape when, in fact, one must 'reel' the tape back in with a wheel on the bottom of the timer...that's only reason it doesn't get a '5 star' rating.

This product looks good and works well. It's harder to tell the exact time (or time left) using this timer than it might be with more traditionally designed timers, but it's easy enough to get used to.

This little timer works great and is so fun to use! I wondered whether the tape would bend and be sturdy enough to stand up to lots of use, but it looks like it will be around a long time.

My daughter really likes this timer, but the metal pull tab on the end of the tape broke off the third time we used it. It's so inexpensive I'm going to just find a way to fasten it back on rather than bothering to return it, but if anything else breaks it will go straight in the trash and I'll find another company to buy a different timer from. I wouldn't buy this one again.

if only the timer rang longer! It is solid construction, looks cute and is easy to use. There is a dial underneath the base that you need to use if you over shoot the amount of minutes that you need, you just move the dial to get the correct amount of minutes. Now, my mother who I orginally bought this for, did not like that because she has MS and hand tremors, so if you have the same problems, this is not the timer for you, but I love it!
That being said, I do wish the timer rang instead of "dinging"! So if you are using it and are in the same room it is great...if you plan on being somewhere else, you may miss the "ding!"

If you are looking for a simple timer, this is great!

The first one of these I bought broke, but the second one is working well. When using the wheel/dial on the bottom to adjust the time, be careful to not press down hard. Also, the timer ticks and rings fairly loudly, just so you're warned. The rest of this review will cover details of using the timer for the Pomodoro method, and also the details of the mechanics involved with the timer breaking.

I bought this timer hoping to use it with the Pomodoro time management system, so here are a few words on that aspect of this timer and it's use. Overall, it's working well for me for the Pomodoro Method. Be warned that it ticks loudly, so this won't work if you're sharing a space with others. On the other hand, the ticking is an advantage if you're not going to bug other people, because you'll grow to associate that ticking with being in that working-mode zone. Also, being able to glance up and see roughly how much time you have left is a bonus.

I opened up the first timer, to find out why it had broken. I'll try to describe what's went wrong. Inside the unit, the tape is bolted to a wheel that turns. But the tape isn't bolted at the extreme end. Instead, the tape protrudes beyond the place it's bolted down. The problem is that the space that the wheel is in is surrounded by a circle of plastic with gaps in it, and the protruding end of the tape can catch on those gaps. By catching, the tape can fully stop the wheel from rotating, which stops the timer. The good news is that the protruding end of the tape doesn't seem to catch on the gaps in the circle unless you press down fairly hard on the adjustment dial (which shifts the wheel out of place as it rotates). I've been using my fingernail to get a grip on the dial so that I'm not pressing down in order to dial it, but I don't know if you need to be that careful. As I said above, just don't press down too hard on the wheel and you'll probably be okay.
