After reading the previous reviews I had to turn my timer around to check its Cat. No. and make sure I had the same unit. I bought this timer last summer (8 months ago) and I've had no problems with it. The magnet doesn't release from the refrigerator as I punch in the numbers. It does shift a bit. Maybe other users are being heavy handed? I've used it to remind me of events later in the day, setting it as far ahead as 7 hours and however many minutes I need. So it should work fine to time a roast. It's a simple unit and I've gotten a lot of use out of it without it breaking. Hopefully it will last for years. I'm buying another one today for my husband to use in his office. That's the best recommendation I can give it.

I am happy that the previous reviews that I read had issues problems that do not effect me and my use of this great timer. It does time to 99 hours, so go ahead and plan on cooking that roast or turkey or whatever extended time you need to set this timer for. Also, the magnet does attach snugly to the fridge, as far as trying to push the buttons and leaving it there, I tried it and it did not fall off the couple of times I did that to see if it would fall off to the floor. When I usually set mine though, I have it in my hand, just because that is how I have always set my timers all my life. It will turn off after a minute of ringing, but you can take it with you wherever you may be when you think your time will be up, since it is portable to not miss the ring down the block or wherever you may be. The current time is nice to have in the area of the kitchen where mine is stored on the fridge.

This is a good kitchen timer. It replaces an older version of the same sort of electronic timer that my daughters misplaced. The only drawback is that it is a single timer. I would have preferred a dual timer, which was what I used to have, but I ordered the wrong item-- oops! Anyway, I kept the timer and it works great.

For electric timers, this is the standard. It is used in medical offices and photo labs.
.
The device has many advantages:
.
. . 1. The LCD screen is big in comparison to its competitors.
.
. . 2. The buttons are easy to operate. There is no need to consult a manual or instruction sheet.
.
. . 3. It uses AAA batteries instead of expensive watch batteries.
.
. . 4. I purchased two West Bend timers 10 years. One broke down, and the other is still OK.

This timer keeps time just fine. It's easy to set. And it is thoroughly FRUSTRATING!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have been using it for about 2 months now, and it has some interesting occurances. First, the magnet is intolerably weak. I got the timer, took it out of its box, and put it on the fridge. Fine. Then I used it. As soon as I touched a button(not even hard enough to set a number) it came crashing off the fridge. Pretty much that's the story. If you want to use it, you have to hold it in your hand.
The other frustrating thing...It only times 100 minutes. That's fine if you're making cookies or a cake. But if you want to time your roast while its in the oven, it sure would be nice to have more time.
*****Final Thoughts*****
Find another timer. This one keeps time fine, but if you are going to invest in a digital timer, get one that keeps at least 10 hours.
If you are going to buy a magnetic one, I suggest that you see it in person first to find out whether it sticks well.

Alarm on this timer is about 1/2 as loud as my 10 yr old 40055 (and my old 40055 is about 1/2 as loud as it was when new!) Also, the 3rd or 4th time I used it I couldn't shut the alarm off until I removed the battery. However, since reinserting the battery I've had no further issues with it. Despite the rather negative tone of this review, because of their price and simplicity I'll probably order another one of these if I can't find a different brand/model that is better. Any suggestions anyone?

USUALLY A GREAT TIMER BUT THIS BATCH SEEMS TO LOCK UP EVERY ONCE IN AWHILE WITH THE ALARM GOING OFF. YOU HAVE TO PHYSICALLY REMOVE THE BATTERY AND PUT IT BACK IN TO RESET IT, THE BUTTONS DO NOT DO IT.

The West Bend 40055 timer has a few good points, and one serious defect of design.

The good: It has a clock as well as timer. it is sufficiently loud (and slightly lower frequency) tha my poor ears can hear it. This latter is the reason I purchased this timer.

The bad: It doesn't reset to the previously set time. Thus, when doing repeating intervals, one must press the hr/min/ sec button to count up to the desired time.

Update 2015-05: the real bad. The mechanical design of the timer is horrible. The magnetic back is held on by two very small soft plastic pieces, one of which broke within a month. The other broke within the year, and the magnetic back, which is also the foot that holds the timer roughly vertical, is no longer attached. Electronically and acoustically, the timer is fine. Mechanically, it is defective.

However the big defect is mechanical. The setting which holds the magnet/stand is extremely thin. It broke within 2 months. So a decent timer no longer can utilize the stand because the sockets that hold the pivots is very thin and weak plastic. By design, it is destined to fail there.

I would not purchase this again.
