Double Kitchen Timer

Double Kitchen TimerMy kitchen has several timers in it. There are timers built in to the microwave and oven, as well as timers on my radio/cd player and a magnetic timer that I stick to any handy surface. I could even use the alarm clock on my cell phone if I had to. It’s rare that I actually need to put all of them to use at the same time, but because I hate to rely on a clock and try to remember the exact start and end times of what I’m cooking, I’d rather be over-timered than under-timered; it’s so much more convenient to have a timer go off to remind me when to check my cake.

Until I had my portable timer, I found myself setting and resetting the oven and microwave timers as I cooked. The microwave timer, for instance, only works well if I don’t want to use the microwave for anything when it is in use. So for me, multifunctional timers are the way to go. Mine is a plain digital timer, but I’ve had my eye on this retro-styled Double Kitchen Timer for a while now. The timer has two independent timers that time up to 55 minutes each. I admit that it’s not quite as versatile as my digital timer, since that covers a much wider time range (up to 12 hours), but the look is just adorable and it will work great for most kitchen tasks.


  1. Buy a timer and do a good deed. These are talking timers made for the blind but we sighted people can use them too. They are $9.95 and shipping is free. They count up or down. I keep one in the kitchen, one at the computer and one next to the grill.

  2. This gadget is great. Even though we could make us of our household clock as a timer. But is great and useful also. Thanks for the share.
