Product Description

A 3 minute plastic sand timer works great for timing eggs and even better for timing eggheads! by eggheads we mean those co-workers who talk on and on about themselves while you're trying to work. if you're the most popular person in your office, you just might need to give each co-worker a 3 minute time limit on their visits. if you're about to blow your stack over a problem, give yourself a 3 minute cool down. a 3 minute timer is also useful during meetings and training sessions. these cute little timers come in a dozen pack.

Ordered these for meeting management, to help speakers keep their remarks within time limits. The timers are all supposed to be the same but had huge variances in the amount of sand - some had twice as much as others, no two the same. Though not as important as the functionality issue, they are also not as pictured (no colored sand). While they're not expensive, they're also not useful.

got these to complement my Pictionary game, to be able to use a different color for each team/player.
but it does not work as a real time measurement as every one lasts different than the other... more than that... the difference between the shortest and the longest duration is about 3 times...
lots of fun, but not accurate.

I don't mind the colors, the cost, or the material. What I mind is that all the items are various times. Some were 2 minutes 55 seconds( I don't that), but the others range from 3:06, 3:16, and 3:42! t would have been nice if it was a little closer to 1 set time.

Don't recommend it.

Colorful..Yes ! Timekeepers....NO!! ONLY 3 of the 12 sand timer were close to 3 minutes. The rest I threw away because they were way off. Invest in a better quality timekeeper.

I am a teacher and get these to use in my classroom for games and timing turns. I have never actually timed how long it takes to empty because it doesn't really make too much of a difference for what I'm using it for, but it definitely seems shorter than 3 minutes, it seems more like 1 min (which is good for my purposes). I like that they are colorful and small (easy to store). I took a star off because of the timing inaccuracy and a few have broken on me before where the sand spills out into the whole tube, but this was after some probably rough use from a lot of kids. These are a really good deal considering that the large plastic sand timers like they sell at lakeshore are over $10 each.

I needed 12 three-minute timers that would work, so I bought 12 of these (colored sand), and 12 of the ones with white sand. 1 of these had sand get stuck, so it was useless. 2 of the ones from THIS set were about 15 seconds too long (and one ran for 3:30!), and another 3 from THIS set were about 15 seconds short. I was using them for a tea, so timing wasn't critical. They are very VERY cheap looking, but they are also very cheap. :-)

But they suited out purpose. We were missing timers in some of our games, and we wanted to add timers to some of our home games and these fit the bill. They have suction cups on the sides, which was unexpected, but not a bother. They are pretty close to 3 minutes and work great for party games but I would not rely on them for cooking. Nice price.

Playing around with the timers, a few tend to get 'stuck' to where I had to tap on it to get the sand flowing again. A bit frustrating at times, but for the price, I can 'tap' the timer to get it going again.
