This retro mechanical timer is just the sort of thing I'd been looking for; no batteries to wear out just when you need it the most, and operating it is so simple a child would have no trouble. BUT...you must *read the instructions*. Like anything with moving parts, there is a correct way to operate it. On the back of the package, here are the instructions:

1 Turn Clockwise to 60

2 Turn counterclockwise to the number of minutes required

3 A bell will ring when the minutes have elapsed.

I suspect that all the previous negative reviews of this timer are from people that did not actually read the back of the package, simply assuming that you start by setting it clockwise to the minutes desired. It's an easy mistake to make, but hardly fair to dock the product rating due to user error.

The fox retro run timer that I received is solidly made, reliable, and rings clearly and pleasantly when the minutes are up. I love the magnetic backing that allows me to post it on the fridge or anywhere there's metal. It fits in perfectly with my 50s-themed kitchen. Well worth the price!

This is a fun little kitchen timer! Just make sure you get one that's reliable and works properly and you're good to go. Has a nice, loud bell. You can hear it in the next room unless you have your music blasting or your vacuum cleaner on.

The first one I received from Amazon would stop ticking even though I followed directions for turning the dial past the 55-minute mark and then setting it to the number of minutes I wanted. I would set it at 30 minutes or 45 minutes and it would tick briefly, then stop. But it was accurate at shorter times of 5 or 10 minutes; it would tick down and the bell would go off.

Due to its unreliability, I returned it to Amazon for an exchange of the same model. That one had the same defect.

This time I contacted the manufacturer, Fox Run Craftsmen. They sent me a replacement that has worked beautifully!

My advice is, if you get one that doesn't work, contact Fox Run Craftsmen for a replacement.

Now that I have a working one, let me say it is the cutest kitchen gadget ever! I like the fire engine red color! The size is depicted accurately as "actual size" in the photo at just about 3 inches in diameter, so it is small. The magnet is strong. It looks great on my refrigerator!

Recommended. (With above caveats.)

This timer has the added feature of being magnetic. We stuck to the fridge. The base is metal and the cover is clear plastic. It has a large enough dial to view the time left. The bell is loud enough to hear in another room. This is an low tech old school product that gets the job done.

This timer worked great... for a week. Then it would only ring lightly for a second. Now, not at all. Will be returning it forthwith. Caveat emptor!

the first one of these i received was a christmas gift. i was in love with it! well, it didn't work, it didn't ring at all. so i took it back to the store to return it and tried a BUNCH of them in the shop while shopping. they didn't work. my husband, the gift giver, figured out that i need to set the timer PAST the time needed and pull it back to the time i want in order to get it to ring. so that seemed to work - the bell would ring about a minute early, but it seemed to work. If you need 10 minutes, set it for 11, it'll ring around 10, and keep ticking. So, feeling confident about this "band-aid" technique to make it work, i bought more (silly me). i now have four and ALL of them are completely unreliable. One of them doesn't work at all anymore, the other three ring sometimes, but you never can be sure. i've reverted to using any and all forms of kitchen timers - except this one. what a disappointment. i tried, and tried, and tried, and yes, tried again, and all four of them are useless. as someone else wrote, "great paperweight", or cute kitchen refrigerator magnet. No more, no less.

I like this timer, it has a neat retro green color and it works like a charm! Also, the magnet on the back is pretty handy. I just stick it on the fridge, wind it up and off it goes tick-tocking.

To use this timer properly you must wind it ALL THE WAY TO 55 FIRST then dial it back to whatever time you want it to count down from. It says this on the back of the box, but it can be easy to miss.

EDIT (3/17/2013): I had to reduce the rating to 2 stars. The first reason was because the metal ring around the dial came off. It was glued on and the glue became weakened and wouldn't hold the ring on anymore. Second, the backing that displays the time remaining is made of paper. If the paper is exposed to steam it will wrinkle and deform, which is what has happened to my timer. If this were a higher-quality timer the manufacturer would have used better parts like a metal backing instead of paper. This still gets 2 stars because timer mechanism continues to work fine, but the ornamental parts are not good quality.

When I ordered this timer, it was initially back ordered. I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived within just a few days.

It works perfectly by keeping extrememly accurate time. It passed the cookie baking test with flying colors. The magnetic backing is perfect for sticking to any surface at any angle.

The ad for this timer isn't specific and pictures it in a way that implies it is much larger than it actually is. Be aware that it is small, which works for my tiny workspace.

Overall, I am very pleased with my cute little retro timer!
