Loud but not reliable – Bird House Style Kitchen Timer (60-Minute) Reviews

posted by accountANT1 on 01/17/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
It's definitely loud enough. Magnetic so it sticks well on the fridge. Not bad looking. My bird was intact.
Cons:
It's not reliable. It will often stop ticking part-way through, so if you're timing something in the oven, there's a chance it could burn. Once when it stopped ticking I'd forgotten about it--then at 4:00am it goes off! A good way to induce a heart attack.
Other:
Sounds like an old-fashioned telephone ringing. BRRRRRIIINGGGG
Bottomline:
Useful if you're lucky enough to get one that works all the time. Questionable quality of internal mechanical timer.
