I have never had a need for a cooking timer before because I usually use the one on the stove or the one on the microwave. However, when we moved into this house I realized that not only did the timer on my microwave not work correctly, the one on my stove didn't either. What are the odds?! Luckily for me, I was offered the chance to try this cooking timer right when I needed one.
I love that this timer is pretty small, I don't like a lot of extra clutter in my kitchen. My favorite thing about this timer is that it has magnets on the back that allow me to attach it to the side of my microwave (that refuses to keep time!). There is also a little stand on the back of the timer if you prefer to sit it on a counter.
As for the use of the timer, it really can't get any more simple than it is. The screen is touchscreen and it just takes a couple simple touches on the screen and you are ready to go. The only downside I have found is that the timer can be a bit hard to see if it is sitting below eye level; the easiest way to fix that is to attach it to a fridge (or any metal surface) above eye level. The alarm on the timer is just loud enough for me but could stand to be a bit louder. For anyone else, the timer would probably be plenty loud enough though since I am deaf in one ear.
