The volume is very low, even fine if you slide it in to your shirt pocket. It acts as a count-up timer, just push the start button with all digits zeroed, a nice feature. I have not placed my third one into use, but both of the previous two developed display flaws within 6 weeks of being placed into service. I am hoping the third one will be the charm. If so, I will upgrade my rating slightly.
I've had this for about four months now. No problems.
To reset to zero, press the Min & Sec keys simultaneously. No big deal. Then press Start. The display tells how much time you have left. Since it has a magnet, you can attach it to metal to watch it count down. When it's time, it beeps until you press Start again; not loudly, but loud enough to get a payback for its small size and low cost. It can normally be heard in the same room and just maybe in the next room. Unless you're singing. Loudly.
My last timer lasted 23 years. No, it was not a Taylor Brand either. This cheapo timer's left digit won't work, making the minute a complete guess. Don't buy this.
Works well. Inexpensive and easy to use. Magnet makes it versatile.
This is going back to the store. I bought it two days ago and it seems to work well so far, with one exception. The alarm volume is very low. If there is any kind of background noise, like a tv or appliance running, you can not hear the alarm more than three feet away from the timer. The whole point of having a timer is to alert you when the set time is up. This item fails at that task.
We got this about a year ago. It still works, but to reset it, you have to press the minute and second buttons together. It hardly ever works the first time. I have had to press it 6 times before it would clear to 0:00. It's kind of loud, but so high-pitched, it's not really workable from 8 feet away.
It's cute and small, plus worked fine for one
month. We dropped the timer on a carpeted
floor and that was it for the digital read out.
Buy cheap,get cheap.
this is the second one I bought. first one works well, but I do think it's a bit overpriced. second one doesn't work and will be returning it. it will time, but you can't read the numbers to know what time you're setting. what good is a timer that doesn't show the numbers?
Yes. This timer has minutes and seconds. BUT for half the price you can get a Sunbeam Timer at Wal-Mart, which does not have the seconds, but has hours!!, Who sets timers for cooking in seconds??? The Sunbeam timer also is at an advantage with 5 AND 10 minute reminders. This timer is just a timer. No reminder. Nothing special. The Sunbeam timer
The magnet on this time is not strong enough to attach it to anything. It kept falling off everything I attempted to attach it to. When I thought I found something it would hold it, I set the time and the timer fell off. Maybe I just have a bad magnet on this one, but I really can't recommend it to anyone.
If you are at a Wal-Mart that carries the Sunbeam Timer BUY IT! The Wal-Mart I bought this Taylor Timer from was out of stock of the Sunbeam, so I thought, what the heck, I'll give it a try. Now I'm going to drive 40 miles to the Wal-Mart which HAS the Sunbeam in stock!
This timer is so quiet that you can't hear it, unless you are right next to it. I e-mailed Taylor and they sent a warranty replacement. That was good, except they sent it to the wrong address. I finally got it a month later. The replacement is just as quiet. Now, I have two that are difficult to hear. I bought a West Bend and it is fine.
got it for a Boggle timer----- great~~!!
It was so tiny that the alarm couldn't be heard a few feet away from it.
