I use a Windows Gadget 'Alarm Clock * XL'. For some reason, MS closed down their Gadget gallery, but I kept a backup =)

That certainly is louder than my stove alarm.

I have a ThermoWorks I bought over a year ago. Still haven't had to replace the AAA battery that comes in it.

There was a small news item the other day about an alarm clock that you can't shut off unless you get out of bed and do several things. It was invented by a college kid who was always late for class because he kept hitting the 'snooze' button. It is tied to your coffee maker, and you have to get up, start the coffee maker and do several other things before it will shut off. He now has orders for more than 100 of them. And he is making them all by hand. I see the start of a new business starting up.

When I was that age I used to set three wind up alarm clocks about 10 minutes apart. I put them far from the bed. I still often managed to turn them all off without waking up.

I normally use the timer on the microwave which works fine unless the DW decides to heat up a cup of coffee while I'm cooking.

That is what the zapper is for. Heating up coffee. I would suggest that you spend six dollars and buy a separate one. If only for harmoney in the kitchen.
