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.
