Your Guide To Buying a Kitchen Timer

By Yehudah Posnick

    An integral part of most recipes is properly following directions. And those directions usually involve adhering to the cooking time. Cooking too much or not enough can lead to disastrous results—the food can be ruined, and you might not have enough time to start over again. That's where a kitchen timer comes in handy. It's not just for three-minute eggs: you can use it for more complicated things, like a roast, a stew, baked goods, or a soufflé. There are lots of colorful and innovative timers that lend décor to your kitchen as well. Here is a guide to some of the best kitchen timers on the market. 

    Timers in general can be distinguished from stopwatches, which counts up from zero. You set the timer for the maximal cooking time, and when it winds down to zero, it alerts you.

    • Mechanical: These are familiar wind-up style clocks. They work on the basis of a wound spring, where you dial the clock to the desired cooking time. It then starts counting down the seconds. When it reaches zero, it will ring a bell or buzzer. The Pomodoro Kitchen Timer, which is a timer in the shape of a tomato (= pomodoro in Italian), can be wound from 1 to 55 minutes. It then rings to alert you that time is up.

    • Electromechanical: These are employed in washers, driers, and dishwashers. You dial the time that you want the machine to work, and the time runs down to zero, turning the appliance off.

    • Electronic/Digital Timers: Since electronics have become so inexpensive, people generally prefer a electronic digital timer, which can be set to a precise number of minutes, and even seconds.

    Based on all the consumers' reviews we've scanned, these are the top things they mentioned about their new stuff:

    • Innovative design: Datexx makes an unusual type of timer: It consists of a cube with numbers marked on each face. The number that appears on the uppermost face of the cube is the setting on the timer. It then alerts you when the time is up. You reset the timer by placing the “0” face upwards. Different Datexx timers have different settings: 5-15-30-60 minutes, 5-10-20-45 minutes, etc.

    • Loud alarm: Some prefer a loud alarm, so that they can hear that time is up, even from a different room. The Marathon clock will beep for one minute. It's advised to check how long the alarm will sound until you either turn it off, or it goes off by itself.

    • Large display: The West Bend Digital Timer has a large display, to allow you to see the amount of time remaining. The display should be visible from anywhere in the kitchen or other room where you're employing the timer. The Datexx cube timers are cute, but you can't really see the time left on the LCD window.

    • Can be placed anywhere: The West Bend timer has a magnet, so that you can attach it to the refrigerator. Alternatively, you can stand it up on the kitchen counter or table, or hang it from a hook on the wall.

    • Total time: The West Bend Digital Timer has a maximum of 100 hours. You won't be cooking anything that takes over three days to cook, but it's good to know that the timer can go that high. The Marathon Large Digital Timer is a 24 hour clock. The Funkychef Kitchen Timer has a 100 minute maximum time.

    • Accuracy: Cooking times don't have to be accurate to the second, but typically a digital timer will be more accurate than a mechanical one.

    • Timer & Thermometer: The Polder Digital In-oven Thermometer/Timer combines two functions: It works as a timer to tell you how long a piece of meat has been cooking, but it also has a temperature probe that you insert into the meat, to tell you the temperature. The probe can withstand temperatures of up to 362 degrees Fahrenheit.

    • Split timing: There are digital timers that can time more than one thing at a time. This is called “split timing”. This might be handy in some cooking applications.

    • Count up and count down: Even though timers typically count down, there are digital clocks that can count up or down—that's more versatile, since you'll get a stopwatch and timer in one product. The Marathon TI080001 is such a model.
