I want a magnetic kitchen timer...

But can't find one!

What kind of kitchen timer do you use ?

I bought one at Radio Shack. Have seen them at Wal-Mart and Bed, Bath & Beyond. You might check Amazon.com or Overstock.com.

I have an old-fashioned Lux wind-up timer that I love.

But I also use probe thermometers which are magnetic, and are also timers. Here's a picture of two brands I use: Taylor and Polder. The top display is the timer (which I was not using). The bottom left display is the actual temp of the meat and the right is the temp that I want that meat to reach (and then the alarm beeps).

These things do a lot for relatively short money. Highly recommend!

Didn't I just see this on another thread?? LOL.

My timer is built into my stove, but I could see a good use for one that monitors the temp of the meat. How does that work? I can't see that thing sitting in the oven? Is it only good for grilling then so it can sit next to the grill?

No, Mav. You place the probe into the meat, close the oven door on the cable, and the readout sits on the counter. Or you can attach the readout to the oven door, if you want (it's magnetized).

So much easier than using "minutes per pound" guesses and/or instant read thermometers to check for doneness.
