This is one of those things.
- It works. A little surprising, and not without flaw, but still is more than just a visually pleasing accessory.
- Magnetic. I regularly contemplate putting it somewhere on my car and enjoying the reactions. Nice not to deal with a sticky mounting mess (3m), and it doesn't take up precious counter space (though honestly, it's not that big)
- It's awesome. C'mon, you know your fridge looks better with this on it!
- Not a great timekeeper. If you're setting it for five minutes or less, don't count on it being accurate. Beyond five, and especially close to and past 20 mins will give you a pretty accurate count.
- Crappy bell. If you're more than a room away, your cookies are going to burn. I've been in the kitchen and missed the actual ring. Very short, and not very loud
- Sporadic ringing. Usually I'll get a ring around the 2-3 minute mark. That might be a built-in feature that tries to warn you that your time is running out, but that'd be a pretty optimistic view
- Hang-ups. It doesn't happen often, and typically only when you start the timer with 5-minutes or less on the count, but it can get hung up with a couple minutes left, and tick there for half an hour, until you notice smoke. Not that I had personal experience or anything like that...
All in all, more cool than useful. Still does the job, but if you need accuracy and a better ring, try something else. If you need a general timeline for what you're cooking (like me), and love nifty gadgets (again, me) this is your best choice.
These timers held up for less than a year. After a while the dial will not hold a time-set. You wind it, set it for 30 minutes, you let go and weeeee it spins to zero and rings. Useless landfill.
My wife frequently brings home those fiesta-ware colored, "retro" timers. (There are many sellers here on Amazon as well). Why frequently, you may ask. Well, because they are crap. The rings come off or loose, the bell stops working, the dial falls off--pretty much anything that CAN go wrong DOES.
Not this lovely timer.
First it is a bit bigger...I'd say about 4.5 inches in diameter. The dial is easy to read across the kitchen. The magnet works well. AND the bell rings loud enough to actually hear from a room or two away.
I came back here to get a second one to keep on my gas grill.
The ONLY improvement needed? The little red dot that indicates the top of the clock face is very small and hard to read from a distance. I fixed that with masking tape and some of my wife's fingernail polish. Now there is a bold red line across the chrome ring. It took me about 5 minutes.
Great timer. Buy one....or two?
The red part is made of rubber. This material was chosen so you can grip it easily when turning it.
— WIND PROPERLY —
When using it you will have to turn it *all the way around* to fully wind it up, then you can set it to whatever time you like. If you do not wind it all the way to the 55-60 minutes *first*, it will snap back to 0. So I repeat, rewind one full rotation first, *then* set your time.
I've read complaints about the magnet not being strong enough; it's true, the magnet really should be bigger/stronger on the back (I'm not sure why the designers skimped this material). I have discovered that if you push *against it* while turning, then it stays stuck to your fridge. You will have to practice turning it to get the hang of turning it without having it move around. The magnet meets the minimum requirement to not fall off.
The other complaint I've read about is that it isn't very loud. This is true as well. If you are in another room, you will most likely miss the ringing. If you are in the same room, you will not miss it. The ringing lasts about four seconds which is not very long. My other timer rings for a full minute before stopping (but that one is battery powered).
As for time accuracy, I measured it with my other kitchen timer along with an iPhone timer, the results are both analog kitchen timers were about 5-10 seconds behind the iPhone timer. If you want accuracy get a digital timer. For those that are pretty good at cooking and use a timer as a guideline, and want a cute timer, then this item for you.
It's a great conversation piece, and will look nice stuck on your fridge or stove. Recommended.
