I had an Italian tomato timer for twenty years until I dropped it a few weeks ago and broke it. This new Tomato Timer looks like my old timer, but it isn't--it's a poorly made Chinese knock-off. The way it has the minutes printed on the bottom and the arrow on the top means you have to pick it up to see how many minutes you have left. But the real problem is that it's unreliable. Sometimes it works and has a nice ring, sometimes it just DOESN'T WORK. I turn it all the way to 60, as the instructions advise, then back to the time I want, and often it simply stops. Nearly burned a pie with this one. Even broken, my old timer is better than this one. EBay has dozens that look promising--look for the minutes on the top half, the arrow on the bottom.

It is just a plastic tomato timer, but looks very nice. Try not to force it or it will probably break, but if you treat it nicely it will do the job. Great to do Time Management (Pomodoro Technique, anyone?).

We used this item for one week, twice a day, and it's already broken. I submitted a return request earlier today but have not yet received a response; I will update this review once I get a response.

Update 10/20: I received a response later that day and was offered a refund or reshipment. In this case I chose a refund. I got an email from Amazon today that the refund had been submitted. So, if you feel like chancing it, I can vouch for the seller (ATAFA).

After carefully reading the reviews and making sure I ordered the "right" pomodoro timer - guess what - I got the one with numbers on the bottom, making it quite hard to read the time remaining. What's interesting is that it came in a box which has the picture of the "numbers on top" timer. It seems like the kind of timer you will get when ordering this product will depend on luck.

It was DOA. I would love to rate it with 0.
I was following instructions but it did not ring and it did not stop at 0.
Such simple item should not even have instructions - it should just work.
I saw all the bad reviews but for some reason still decided to buy it.
Buyer, beware! Looking at all those reviews plus my own experience, there is a great chance that timer that you ordered will be DOA or will be broken very soon.

Other reviews indicate that this timer is of lesser quality. I don't understand how they can say that because I'm very happy with what I got. It works excellently for implementing the Pomodoro Technique just as Cirillo describes it. Wonderful product!!!

nice to have on the counter. not accurate enough for your only kitchen timer. pretty but old fashioned. get the kitchen aid timer, it is far better, although more expensive. this tomate has one function, move the zero to the general location of the time you want measured, and it goes. no resetting. no remembering last time, no adding to the time running. but cute.

This is a piece of junk, don't buy it. I've just used it for 1 week and now it's broke.
