What's your favorite digital kitchen timer?

I need a new kitchen timer and am looking for a new one, preferably a double or triple digital timer that has a decent but not annoying sound. Would love to hear which ones people here like. I bought the Oxo triple timer but just saw that it got bad reviews on Amazon.

Oxo usually has good stuff. What did the reviews say and are you experiencing any problems with the timer?

I have a timer on my stove and three remote probe thermometers with timer functions so I'm all set.

I also have an iPad with a timer function.

Whenever I need a timer or stopwatch I use the app on my phone.

The app was free.

Why spend money unnecessarily?

The reviews were really mixed. The bad ones were about it breaking down pretty quickly after people purchased it. I just bought it tonight so I'll see what happens.

I thought of that, but I don't want to keep my iPhone in the kitchen. I have two cats, and they knock things over all the time!

enough for one to puke on the phone, then another to knock it on the floor, then another to push it under the fridge.

i'm just guessing.


my best timing device is when the smoke alarms go off. i know dinner's almost ready to come in from the garden or from playing wiffle ball down the street.
