OXO Good Grips Triple Timer Amazon: $19.99 Kitchen timers are quite useful to all of us for various reasons. Finding one I really LIKE has been a problem because of my personal requirements for what is GOOD in a kitchen timer. There are tons of these things on the market. Some are cheap and some cost a little more. THIS one is a keeper. I like a kitchen timer that has a numeric keypad to enter the times you want rather than having to scroll numbers to get to the right one in each position on the timer. This particular model also has three independent 100-hour timers that can be used as count-up or count-down timers simultaneously. Each timer has a different alarm sound. When this timer is in the timer mode, all three timers are visible on the LCD screen. When the timer is not in use, the unit defaults to the clock mode. This is a counter-top type timer. It is wedge shaped and designed to be read while sitting in the shown position on a flat surface. There is no magnet for attaching it to a metal surface. This timer is quite intuitive and easy to use. It's my go-to timer. It runs on two AAA batteries. This one has been running for over two months on the first set of batteries, which is pretty good considering I use it multiple times per week while cooking. For $20, I think it's hard to go wrong with one of these. Thermoworks Extra Big & Loud Timer Thermoworks: $29.00 Here's another timer that I have in my collection. Once again, this timer meets my requirement of having a keypad for inputting my desired times. This one has a flip out tab on the back so it will stand up on a flat surface. It also has magnets if you want to put it on a metal surface. This is also a 99 hour alarm and it has an adjustable volume control for the alarm. This model runs on a single 9v battery and boasts IP65 water resistance. Thermoworks TimeStick Thermoworks: $25.00 Another timer that I like is the Thermoworks TimeStick. This small timer also has a numeric keypad for entering times. It also works in count-down or count-up modes. It has a 100 hour timer, is water resistant, and comes with a neck lanyard so you can keep it with you rather than having to go back and forth to the timer to see how much time you have remaining. This one is also available in 9 different colors. This is a very handy tool! This small timer runs on a single CR2032 battery. There are a lot of timer options out there but one thing to watch out for when buying one is its timer duration. Some of the less expensive timers only count down or count up to 99 minutes. That's not always useful when doing a 12 hour cook.
