Cheap, small and discrete. – Ultrathin Credit Card Sized Digital LCD Kitchen Buzzer Timer with Magnetic Mount Reviews

posted by jgutie on 09/07/2009 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Magnet helps to get it placed on any metalic surface.
Comes with battery included.
Slim, it is not thicker than 6 credit cards piled up
Cons:
Beep is too low:
If you plan to use it on a noisy environment or to get back to check something from 6 meters aways.... you may find it not that useful ( for such cases the sku.4621 will be a better option
Battery is coin type, so if you deplete it it wont be that easy to get a replacement ( they are seel here too altough).
Display and numbers are small, so once again if you are not good far sighted or you plan to use it somehow away from you... it would be hard to check the current value... also display does not good as good if seen from an odd angle.
small buttons, not for big fingers guys
Other:
It is cheap, easy to use.
Mine came with magnet, so the guy from forum that did not get it may had bad luck.
Buzzer is quite low, so better to be used in kitchen, or working near to it.
Bottomline:
If you plan to use it on a noisy environment/sighted from far, or you like more the AAA bateries than the coin versions, you better check this other item:
