I have a Chef Alarm Thermometer with a timer and volume control. I can hear the alarm even if I don't have my hearing aids in. That plus my Thermapen cover those needs
Why do you leave your timer in the kitchen Rick?

Because that's where I use it, I guess. In our house the kitchen is only a few feet from the living room anyway, so the distance is not significant. The timer is also my probe thermometer, so it just stays in the kitchen. About half the time I just use the timer on my range anyway. That one is a bit less portable.

I use the thyme app on my Samsung phone. That way I can wander hither and yon and still know when to head back to the kitchen. If you want to sit on the patio or porch, you can always set the timer to allow travel time back to the kitchen.

That is one handy app. I love that it has five timers and that picture of a stove, so you know what the timer is for. Thank you for letting me know about it.

The distance is significant if you can't hear it. Your complaint was you can't hear the timers go off in the living room, because the timers are in the kitchen, right? I don't have a fancy phone, but I do have a simple cheap dial timer I've used for years that goes with me to another room for a simple low tech. solution, and I hear it every time.
