The Pie Timer is a 60 minute kitchen timer that has an easy to read graphic "pie" display. Read up close or across the room with this unique, stylish and quality built timer. The Pie Timer does not require batteries; it has a long lasting, mechanical movement. To use, first wind the timer up to the full 60 minute mark. Then, wind back down to the desired time. This initial step primes the internal spring and ensures that the timer will ring loudly and fully when the allotted amount of time is up. By Joseph Joseph. Green with white timer face.

The faults it has are the faults of any mechanical timer. If you don't like loud ticking, well it's got a loud "tick-tock" sound. While the bell is loud enough to get your attention if you're in the kitchen or the next room, it only rings for a second so if you go away you've got remember to check the timer when you get back, just like any other wind-up. I haven't tested its accuracy, but it seems to work fine turned on its side, so it may be useful in classrooms.
In this timer the face is stationary, but it "disappears" as time runs out. It's quite functional, showing you at a glance from across the room how much time is left. The illusion of the face disappearing is very good. You have to hold it in your hand and look carefully to see that the moving part is a plastic shade that disappears into a slit in the face.
It's a well-designed device, and everyone who's seen it has remarked on how interesting and unusual it is. But in the end it's just a wind-up timer. It does what a wind-up timer does, but with a little more charm and style than most.
Update: if you have trouble with this timer sometimes stopping or failing to ring, make sure you always wind it up to the full 60 minutes before setting the time interval you want. ALL wind-up timers work better if fully wound before use, but this one might not work at all on short intervals without a full winding.
I got this timer to keep at my desk to help me set limits for working periods and breaks.
The one I ordered here sometimes stops running. It appears that the top and bottom halves are slightly misaligned and rub together, which is enough to stop them from turning separately. The ticking sound decreases and then it just stops timing.
Also, there seems to be about a 50% chance it will actually ring when the timer runs out. Usually in the last minute or so I hear a single "clank," then another single "clank" maybe 30 seconds later. Then there will either be a dull "rrrrrring" or absolutely no sound. So if you're using this for timing anything you need to be in the same room as it might stop timing, not make any sound at all, or ring so softly you wouldn't hear it.
I am returning this.
I love this timer while cooking or for keeping myself on task on chores or when I need to keep track of time to make sure I get out the door on time, because it gives me a visual cue with the pie slice design of how much time is left without having to stop to read it or calculate.
Would be good for folks with visual limitations that make reading hard, or for adults with ADHD -- serves similar function to a "Time Timer" -- but looks "adult" and classy and "normal" so it doesn't scream "ADHD" or "time management" when others see it
Love it for my toddler as time is displayed visually and helps him understand better when we say 5 more minutes! We set the timer and he is much more likely to comply to the time limit for whatever :)
