Some purist cooks claim to have an instinctive inner timer, but most people need a little help remembering when to take the roast out or punch down the bread dough for its second rise. This electronic timer fulfills that basic function. With an easy-to-read LCD display that shows minutes and seconds, the unit counts down from any time up to 99 minutes and 59 seconds. There's also a stopwatch function that's useful in many ways, and not necessarily only in the kitchen. An alarm signals when the time is up, and the memory function stores the last countdown time for reuse. The timer's versatile clip can also become an easel stand, and it has a magnet, too--it's good to go wherever it's needed. The handy gadget operates on one AAA battery, and it can be carefully wiped clean with a slightly damp rag as needed. The timer measures 2-1/2 by 2-1/4 by 1/2 inches.

- loud-ish alarm
- AAA battery
- strong magnet on back
- 1hr 39min is the longest time that can be set
- not the highest build quality
- only one timer
- how durable will it be??
This is a no-frills kitchen timer. It hits the essential points and a good price point. Most importantly the alarm is loud enough that you can hear it from another room. I also like the fact that the magnet on the back is larger than most and has good staying power on the fridge. My last time would slide down the fridge.
I do wish it could time longer periods than 1 hr 40 min. This makes it not usable for slow cook recipes.
The build quality isn't great. The display does flicker if you push the buttons firmly. I don't know how long it will last, but I will put it to the test. I got it mostly so my kids can time themselves for cleanup time. It will be abused for sure!
As another reviewer mentioned it does "beep" each time a button is pushed, but my previous timer also did this. I don't find it annoying.

UPDATE: It has been over 3 years since I first wrote this review. The timer has been dropped, squashed and otherwise used and abused by three kids. IT IS STILL KICKING. We lost the battery cover a while back, but the batteries stay in pretty well even without the cover. I can recommend it even more than before.
From the start I wanted something simple, intuitive and dependable--a device I could use to count down the seconds required to complete each of 12 stretching exercises each day. The timer has proven more accessible and convenient than the timer "apps" on an iPod or iPhone. The only problem the Presto has given me is a loose battery cover (a small, curved strip of plastic), which began to fall off after I had removed it a several times. (Replace the single AAA battery with care--and use an alkaline.)
You can pay twice as much for a timer with bigger and brighter buttons, but I doubt you'll get better performance or value for your dollar.
So today, after being infuriated by it for the last time, I threw it across the room into the trash, where it belongs.
Buy something else.
For many years we used a Presto electronic timer and loved it. When it went off it was loud enough to get your attention, even if you weren't in the same room. After many years it finally gave it up so we ordered another Presto from Amazon in June 2013. It also worked great but after a little over a year it was hard to set the time and turn it on. Buttons did not want to work. I know for any modern lost cost item to last a year is pretty amazing but since the other one probably lasted 5 years it was disappointing. We fought with it but finally decided to order a replacement of a different brand. Although probably made in the same factory in China. In Dec 2014 we ordered a Taylor from Amazon. While waiting for Taylor to arrive I decided to tinker with the Presto by using a can of air and contact cleaner to see if I could clean up the internal contacts. I used air to clean around the buttons, sprayed contact cleaner around buttons, and they sprayed with air again. I did not take it apart. Next day it was working like a charm.
Then the Taylor arrived. Nice timer, easy buttons for old hands but it was much too polite when the timer went off. Very soft. Like a golf clap.
Bottom line: If you want a timer that gets your attention buy a Presto. And if the buttons give you problems use a can of air and contact cleaner to bring it back to life. No screwdrivers.
If you want a nice polite timer get a Taylor.
Comment: Amazon is a great company and if you can't find what you need you probably don't need it.
PS It is obvious I have too much time on my hands to write this review but I'm old and it's cold and raining outside.

En mi caso particular, solo lo compre para contar el tiempo. No para el temporizador ni otra cosa. Por lo cual, yo le doy 5 estrellas. La calidad del material va de la mano del precio.
