I carry it around when timing my cooking and baking. Small enough to go into a pocket, but if you don't have one, can be worn around the neck and it's light weight.One caution,the ring is softer than some timers so make sure to take it with you.I forgot to add that the magnet sticks well to most any surface.

Help keep track of time when the buzzer goes off and you can wear around your neck.
Still works years later!
from Reston, VA
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!
Love my traveling memory!

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.

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.

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
