Polder has been offering everyday products with extraordinary design since its launch. The company was established in 1976, delivering better quality European-styled housewares to the U.S. market. Throughout the years, Polder has built an eclectic collection of core home categories, including kitchen timers and thermometers, laundry and ironing products, kitchen scales, and a variety of other storage solutions. Polder products are tested and certified for their consistent high quality by independent standards labs. This timer is a perfect example of the high standard product.
Hanging from a 36-inch strap, this timer provides clock, timer, and stopwatch capabilities, allowing you to keep track of culinary delights along with your 6-minute mile. It measures up to 10 hours, and you'll use it to time a Thanksgiving turkey while letting the 30-second alarm remind you when it's time to return to the kitchen. Magnetically mountable, freestanding, or hanging from the 36-inch-long chord, this timer can be placed wherever necessary. When not in use as a timer, it may be used as a convenient 24-hour clock or a stopwatch that tracks up to 23:59:59. --Madeleine Miller

This timer also lets you enter hours, minutes AND seconds; most kitchen timers only do hours and minutes or minutes and seconds. Maximum time is 9:99:99, which would be 10 hours, 40 minutes and 39 seconds. Yes, it allows you to enter things like 90 seconds instead of 1 minute 30 seconds.
It also has a stopwatch, which is somewhat useful, and a clock, which is rather redundant since I already have 4 clocks in the kitchen. All three modes can be used simultaneously; the display will show which features are currently running. It also has a lock switch so you don't accidentally stop the timer or stopwatch while you carry it around.
It's available in both white and black, but for some reason the black version costs substantially more.
About the only thing that would improve this unit is if it had a lap button for the stopwatch.
These are very simple, easy to use, and reliable timers that have had minor improvements over the years. For example, the timers I ordered in June of 2013: (1) two magnets instead of one so that the timers stayed horizontal on a fridge, and (2) a lock switch that lets me carry a timer in my pocket without accidentally changing the setting or stopping/starting the timer.
Note that the black ones are identical to the white ones except for part number and, naturally, color.
I have tried many other timers of many other types, but always end up coming back to this simple but highly functional timer.
UPDATE: Amazon sent me a new timer to replace the defective one and it works great. Thanks, Amazon!
Once again I shudder at the poor quality we get these days...even for things that used to be made well. (The old one still works, but every once in a while I have to pull the battery out to shut off the alarm... this only started happening in the last few months). The guilt of a land-fill society. I would pay a few more bucks for things that work, but I can't find a timer like this one anywhere else at any price, and I love all the features of my old one.
Thank you Amazon for giving me my money back and letting me keep this instead of going through the hassle of returning it, but it's headed for the trash can. (After I pull the battery - the LR-44 it comes with is a useful size to have spare after all).
Bought for the Lock/Unlock function which prevents this thing from being inadvertently turned on while jiggling around in my gym bag en route. Also for the number buttons, which saves me the trouble of manually pushing buttons to set the time one second at a time. Excellent design and functionality. I did use a thicker, sturdier flat nylon neck strap which made this much more comfortable to keep to my person, hopefully will not lose this one too! Have yet to find anything else like this on the market, strangely enough. My only wish is for a way to turn off the keytones, they're kind of annoying/noisy.
