Cheaply built, not durable, but nice while it lasted.

This is a nice, large-displayed, very basic timer. The alert is sort of subdued, non-jarring, not loud as a klaxon, which may or may not be attractive to you. I had problems with my timer. It suddenly started malfunctioning and then stopped working altogether. I took it apart, and found a wire that had come unmoored from the circuit board. I've seen some cheap circuit boards, but this one took the cake: it was wafer-thin and flimsy-looking. I re-soldered the wire the gauge of which was about as thick as a human hair, barely an exaggeration! The unit functioned for a year or so after the repair before it began to go off spontaneously and all digits would intermittently display "8888", so I popped the battery and trashed it. I liked the timer, but the poor reliability and build quality would prevent me from recommending it to anybody.
