Our mini timer is fun, slim and easy to use. The 1" LCD readout features ¾" digits that are easy to read when you’re busy. Times up to 99 minutes, 59 seconds with smooth buttons to set, start and stop. Handy magnets on back let you place on refrigerator or other metallic surface.
I love this timer. It's small and has a magnet so you can keep at arms length on the fridge! Just don't drop it... I drop my cute pink one and broke. They no longer have the fushia-pink color so I ordered a replacement in red.
This timer is accurate, loud, and slips easily into a shirt pocket or pant pocket (its best feature). Makes it easy to leave the kitchen, mingle with guests, or get other things done, secure in the knowledge that you won't forget when to check your dish. It magnetizes to the fridge. It comes in lots of colors to keep things fun, match your decor, or just to keep it from getting lost in your gadget drawer. The size and colors also make it great for involving younger chefs
I should've known by the minimal number of buttons that this timer would be a pain to use, but unfortunately I relied on the only other review at the time of writing to decide to get this timer.
This thing is a toy - the minute and second buttons only go up! Let's say, for example, you wanted to put something in for 45 minutes. You accidentally press the button one too many times and end up with 46 minutes. If you want to get it to 45 minutes, you either have to: 1) reset it to zero and press the button 45 times again (or hold it down and hope you let go at the right time) or 2) press the button 100 times (or hold it down and hope you let go again) so it resets after 99 mins and adds back up. That is just absurd. Not to mention, the thing is built very cheaply - the magnet on the back was dirty and scratched inside the packaging. Do yourself a favor and get yourself any other timer but this one.
I'd return this myself, but sadly the cost of shipping to ship this product back to SLT would equal the refund I'd get, so it looks like I'm stuck with it
