Best timer I have ever owned.
on April 25, 2015
This is hands down the best timer on the market. Curiously, some people have complained about the very aspects that in fact make this a great timer. Some said it is "too loud." This is preposterous. Being not loud enough is what makes ninety-five percent of timers complete failures. If you set a timer for say fifteen minutes, what are you going to do - stand in the kitchen for fifteen minutes staring at the timer, waiting for it to go off. No - you go about your business. But if you're in another room you want to be able hear the timer.
Then several people said "you can't turn it off." Huh? What? Are these folks escapees from the Funny Farm? You just push the Red button once and it stops - it's called a . . . er, "Start/Stop" button. It has three simple buttons, and if you hold down the "Minutes" button it shoots up very fast to whatever number of minutes you want.
All in all, this looks good, and works perfectly. After I got the first one, I went back and bought three more for future reference, that's how good this is, and on top of everything it's very inexpensive.
