Must Have for Kitchen!
About Me Avid Cook
Comments about Portable Traveling Timer:
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.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

About Me Casual Cook
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.
Great Portable Traveling Timer
By Happy Shopper
from Durham, NC
As long as I wear it when I'm cooking I get to the food it time so it comes off before it burns.
By E. A.
This once-standard design has become nearly unobtainable. The choices available are too big to hold in the hand, egg-shaped (so that several of the times are blocked from view), or designed for only a few minutes, not an hour. The pointer should have a black line down the center, to make it easier to line up the pointer with the minutes on the rim. The white groove it has is hard to see.

Had one in MA and it apparently did not make the move. This one appears to be the same very useful!
Just what I needed
from Whittier, CA
Love magnetic back and compact size. Often want to time cooking and can take out of kitchen to other parts of house to remind me, in case I forget when I need to check. Use gas oven often and really nice to be able set timer and go on with other things.
