I use the alarm function on my cell phone because it goes everywhere I go.

I use the one on the stove. If I need a second one at the same time, my Thermoworks probe thermometer is always in the drawer next to the stove, and it has both a timed alarm and a temperature alarm, so it can do double duty... for $25 it's pretty good deal.

I have a GraLab dark room timer.




Why?

Because I already had it, it's very easy to see, it's very easy to use, and when it sounds it makes a noise that can't be ignored anywhere in the house.

I'm looking for the ultimate timer...(one that I'll actually use though, not one that can play MP3's, tell me how much I weigh, and sweep the floor)

The one I love is a Polder, but not sure if it's the same one you're talking about.
