Comments about Kitchen Timer On A Rope:
This item did not work correctly. If I would like to time a three-minute egg, I'd go to 60 then back it up to 3 minutes-- and NOTHING! Tried to time 10 minutes and the ticking just stopped a minute or so into the timing.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend

Returning this product
from Alpharetta, GA
Great idea - very poor and cheap product. I'm absent minded and forget about things I'm cooking or things in the dryer that need to come out right away when dry. I liked the idea of a timer to hang around my neck and go with me around the house to remind me of things I am timing. The timer dings whenever it moves and it is heavy and very bulky around your neck. After receiving this I realized how much I now appreciate digital timers for accuracy. The dial also is hard to turn. One nice thing is the strong magnet on the back so you can hang up the timer on the refrigerator. If someone would take a digital timer that is small and light-weight and put it on a rope, I would buy it in a minute. That would be a helpful item. I returned this item.
A very handy gadget for a busy homemaker
from Surprise, AZ
I use it when baking as oven timer is not loud enough to hear throughout the house. I also use it when using the clothes dryer for the same reason. It has many other uses for timing anything in the household. The price is right and it's accurate.However,it's too bulky hanging around the neck,could be smaller.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend

Kitchen Timer On A Rope
from Rockaway NJ
I've had 5 or 6 of these now. They don't last that long before the timer just stops running!!!BUT: I like the ease of putting one in my pocket when cooking or doing other timed chores.
1st one=2weeks, 2nd one=2 days
About Me Avid Cook
Timer is a great idea, but the first one didn't last more than a couple of weeks when it just stopped ticking. We called customer service which was great and they replaced it promptly :) The next one barely lasted 2 days before it too stopped ticking. It looks nice and should work, but it's not very durable.
Must Have for Kitchen!
Great to have for a forgetful mind. I use this every time I have things simmering or in the oven. Great reminder to myself that something is cooking.
best timer i have found!
from Ozark, Arkansas
I work in an elementary kitchen, I have tried timers from everywhere! This one has been dropped, dunked and clanked against almost every surface possible. The only thing i can find remotely irritating is the magnet does become disconnected and the timer will fall. Other than that, it takes a licking and keeps on ticking!!
Cord too short but works well
By Scrappy Sue
from Enid, OK
I wanted this to hang around my neck when working in and around my pond and gardens. I sunburn and tire easily so a 1-hour time is great for me. Cord is barely more than necklace length-will have to buy longer cord in nearest city with a fabric store as there's nothing here in my town. Still would recommend this as the timer works well.
Perfect timer to take to any room.
from Finger Lakes, NY
Easy to twist the dial - good for someone with mild arthritis or physical issues. Great tool for a multi-tasker like me - for example: oven timer is on for supper, while I am using this timer for a child's reading task.
By Lucy the frugal shopper
Very handy for a hard of hearing and forgetful Grandma, however the ring could be louder and longer.
