Still works years later!

About Me Casual Cook
Comments about Portable Timer:
I bought this years ago. It times accurately, wipes clean, and even the cord still looks new. Along with a few other small kitchen items, it even makes a great dorm or house-warming gift. We now live in a townhouse with a centrally located and theoretically convenient kitchen, but I'm usually working downstairs or up on the third level and my aging knees now "hate" stairs. My cooking has become more casual (think crockpot and microwave), but timing still matters for some tasks. I can leave the timer around my beloved but often-preoccupied husband's neck while he's in his office, and know that he will go upstairs to drain the pasta for me. My whole-grain noodles won't end up turning from "al dente" to expensive mush just because I'm multi-tasking. I love that!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love my traveling memory!
from Morgan City, LA
About Me Avid Cook
I love to cook, but I must confess that I put things in the oven and get busy doing something else and forget to check my watch! Having a timer that I can hang around my neck so that it goes with me to do laundry, etc. is a godsend! Things in the kitchen are running much more smoothly!

Useful in the kitchen.
from Elmont, NY
Not to forget when cooking something.
from Piggott, AR
I recommend but one less star due to cord not being strong enough.

I use this timer around my neck when I am multitasking. The timer helps me remember a time sensitive task, while I perform another task. I've had this timer for years, and it's working great!
You can not hear it ding.
By not a cook
from heber spring, ar
It was to be used by my mother to open garage door for Meals on Wheels. It is of no use because you can not hear it. There may be a teeny little sound but you would have to have it at your ear! Not useful at all.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Extremely Handy Around the House!

Handy item to have; very useful and portable for on-the-go days. Ordered (2) of these. Would repurchase this item anytime!
Works as advertised.

Used as a time reminder during practice with kids in the 4-H Shooting Sports Program.
No more burned pots
from Philadelphia, PA area
In my busy life I've burned so many pots because I get distraacted while cooking. I have set timers but didn't hear them for one reason or another. I have put them in my pocket but on occasion bumped up against something and they were turned off. I hang this one around my neck and I can engage in as many activities as I need or be forgetful as I occasionally am and NO MORE BURNED POTS.
By Joyce, the cooking slave
from Portland, OR
When I have something in the oven or stove and need to go outside to work in the yard, I hang it around my neck and I don't burn my cooking!
