I am one of those people that has always thought that kitchen timers are all the same. So I always went to a dollar store to get one because I couldn’t see spending more then a buck on sometime so basic. But after trying this timer I was so wrong and I am in love with my new time and here is why.
Yes at first I thought this was going to be just a regular timer (ok maybe a bit cuter, I mean it does have smiley faces on it!) The first thing I noticed when I opened it was that it has a large screen. You can read it across the room! It is approx 2 1/2 in x 1 1/4 in. This is almost twice the size as my old timer.
I also love the fact that it uses a regular battery. 1 AAA (not included) this means I don’t have to keep buying new timers, because lets face it, most timers have those tiny circle batteries that are more expensive to replace then the whole timer so its easier just to go buy a new one. This one saves me that hassle because I always have AAA’s laying around.
It has a magnet on the back to keep on the fridge or stove and also has a little kick stand. The buttons are on the top, they are the fun little smiley guys and are super easy to press. Not only does this have a count down timer it also has a clock that you can have in regular format (am/pm) or military time.
Only con I had is that it is advertised as a Loud Timer. I personally wouldn’t say it is louder then any other timer I have used, it is a normal beeping sound. Otherwise I found it easy to use and love all the features it has. If you would like to learn more or purchase your own you can find it here. I recieved this item for free for my honest and unbiased opinion.
