HOPE TO NEVER BE WITHOUT THESE!
If you're a person that loses track of time, this product is for you. I've been known to be seen w/two or three around my neck timing various things. One can even hear their ring over a lawn mower. I always use one while baking. I have no idea how many times they have saved a meal, or possibly a fire!
They were also handy during my teaching career for various tasks, behavior management, etc.

Time is of the Essence
Being focused on the computer, I lose track of time so having a timer with a lanyard to hang one around my neck means now I don't worry that I will be late, taking the clothes out of the washer in the community laundry room. Or from the dryer, when their done.
Other people find it maddening, when they have to wait for a machine in the senior housing laundry room. Now, if the bell only rang LOUDER.

Finally - one my father can hear
My father can't hear worth a darn - and he knows it. Every day he rides his stationery bike for 10 minutes (pretty good for a man of 94) but can't hear timers go off so my mom has to listen for him. I bought this timer after he tried several others. After receiving it, he called with a big THANK YOU! He can hear it loud and clear.

My Dad joked that my Mom could put this around his neck and set this when he leave to go out so he knows when to come home, but really I got it for him to make life bit easier: he is a fastidious chef for my Mom and carefully times her morning eggs/etc while standing staring at the clock--this way, he can feel free to move about the cabin. I should get one for myself, too.

Not loud enough
Although this timer is better than what I found in local stores, it isn't nearly loud enough to alert me if I happen to leave it in the kitchen while I am in another part of the house. I used to have a time that was loud and could be heard everywhere. Maybe the manufacturer can be alerted to this.

Loud ticking and not dependable
First of all the ticking is so loud I would describe it as unbearable. Also, this stopped working in a dependable way after only two months of use.

Big Cooking Helper!
I love this timer! You simply can't mess up cooking and other timed chores. I have a standard timer, but it doesn't ring loud enough and I'm often too far away from the kitchen to hear it. With this handy, dandy timer on a rope, you can't miss the ringing. It's great, whether you are leaving the kitchen or not since it sticks to the frig when you don't need to leave the room. Like the other timer, it doesn't ring loud enough, but you can't go wrong when it hangs around you neck!

Going to the Pillsbury Bakeoff Contest This will come in handy
I am one of the finalists in this years Pillsbury Bakeoff Contest in Las Vegas in November. I needed a watch I could set for my cooking time as I cannot be near the stove the whole time. This is a great kitchen tool. I will be able to wander and still keep track of my million dollar dish while it is in the oven. Thanks this will help with time management. Brenda Jackson Maryland
