Customer Review

on May 13, 2011
For me, this timer has worked just like they did many years ago (who hasn't had one of these in their past if they are a certain age, eh?).

As others have mentioned, you just have to be sure to always crank it around PAST the 30 minute mark even if you are doing less than 30 minutes. Just go around past the 30 minute mark and go counter-clockwise back to the number of minutes you want. It is just one loud ring but the nice thing about a portable timer is that you can take it in the living room, or whatever, and have it close by so that you can be sure to hear it.

I tested it a couple of times, setting a digital timer on my stove at the same time and they both went off at the EXACT same time. To tell the truth, I was surprised. All I expected of it was the it be close but it was right on, so I'm very pleased.

FWIW, I have the black one and, well, it's perfectly black so it goes with all my black kitchen stuff. It is not shiny. It is a lovely, satiny black.
