Product Description

Style Name: Electronic digital timer

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.

Style Name: Electronic digital timer Verified Purchase
Length: 1:51 Mins
Pros:
- inexpensive
- loud-ish alarm
- simple
- AAA battery
- strong magnet on back

Cons:
- 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.

If you found this review helpful, let me know with your vote. :)

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.

I have had a Presto timer for over 6 years, and I truly would be lost without it. It not only functions as a kitchen timer, but it serves as an alarm clock. Living in Indiana where we get weather that often knock's out our power... we have set it 8 hours ahead to wake us for work. It beeps for a full minute which I love. And you can set it up to 24 hours.
I am getting a new one (mine is still fine, but I don't want to take a chance that they will quit making them...ha ha) and I am getting one for my daughter in law. AND it runs on 1AA battery!

This is a great timer with a few minor flaws, none of which seriously detract from its usefulness. On the up side:

- Four countdown timers
- Loud beeper
- One count-up timer
- Reliable (we use them daily for homeschool)

On the down side:

- The magnet on the back falls off eventually (we rip it off since we don't need it)
- The metal piece for the stand pushes through the plastic in the back of the case over time, potentially causing trouble. I use a rubber eraser instead.
- Switching back to the clock when Timer 1 is stopped causes Timer 1 to be reset to zero (most of the time you'll let the timer run out and never encounter this)

Update 1/10/2009: Almost 3 years later, these things still work fine. Even after having been thrown across the room by temperamental teenagers. In fact I bought 2 extras "just in case" and haven't had to use them at all. As other reviewers have pointed out, the buttons do wear out with heavy use and become less responsive.

This is my first digital kitchen timer. I have used a mechanical timer made by Sunbeam but it broke after only a year or so of use. Compare to the mechanical timer, I like this far more.
It's made in China and the quality of the plastic and the built are better than you'd find in other products made in China, but not to the level of Japanese electronics or ipod. For me, it's very acceptable.
The dimension described in the product features, detail is wrong. It's not even the size of the package but close except the thickness. Actual dimensions are (17mm x 56mm x 67mm), and it's quite easily pocketable.
It has a magnet for keeping on the refrigerator door and paper clip that also function as a stand. When you open the clip half way, it opens wide enough for a paper or a card. When you open it all the way, small metal piece drops between the body and the clip to keep it open as a stand. When flip it upside down and open the clip all the way again, metal piece retract again. The clip also covers the battery compartment when it's closed. If anything gives you an impression that this is a cheaply made gadget, the battery cover will be it.
Operation is easy enough that you can skip the instruction. It has a minute button and a second button and the number only goes up, not down. Push both to clear the number. When the count down ends and the alarm kicks in, it sets the same numbers you put in before. If you want to start a new time, clear the display first then set the new time. It doesn't have on-off switch. I'm planning to use rechargeable battery, so this is not a problem for me.
The alarm makes 4 short beeps about every second and goes for about 30 seconds. It's loud enough in my pocket and that's the way I use it.

This is a better timer than the otherwise excellent Taylor timer and, certainly, the awful Fagor timer. It has a clock that shows time, day, and date and 4 separate timer functions. All timer functions can time up, in ascending order, like a stopwatch. They can time down to zero and buzz like a traditional timer. Three of the timer functions have memories, so if you want to set one timer to ring on, say, fifteen minute intervals, it can save that time setting. The alarm is loud enough to hear but neither so loud or long that it is overly annoying. Timer and clock are independent, so that after timer is set, display can be reset to show the clock while the timer(s) are still working.
Mechanically, the buttons have worked well for three months of ownership, the magnets are still attached, and nothing has broken off or fallen off.

The four timers and the calendar on the clock function make it better than the otherwise excellent Taylor clock/timer (one timer, no calendar on the clock) available for about the same price under $10 on Amazon or Yahoo and certainly a better buy than the astonisingly awful and overpriced Fagor, quoted at $25 at the time of this review.

update: August 2008. After about 8 months, the buttons on this timer got very "sticky" and sometimes required pressing four or five times to activate functions. In response to an email, Presto was fast to suggest its return, but I never got around to it. My Taylor timers, with less functionality, continue to work well.

update: January 2009. I finally tried to return my Presto timer. They told me warranty was expired and the best they could do was offer me a discount on their products. Contrasted to Web shopping prices, their discounted prices offered no real benefit.
