Just what I was looking for
 from Land of 10,000 Lakes,  Sep 29, 2011

I found this after searching high and low for a manual, dare I say, 'analog' timer with a magnetic back so it can go on the side of the fridge - and, I like it. A lot. And would buy for friends who also prefer timers like this. Some Details: *Wind timer fully back to 55 minutes and then set to whatever time you want. I tested it, and my timer is accurate. It is used in the kitchen regularly. *The bell rings about a minute or so 'before' the actual time runs out but continues clicking till it's done. My other manual bell timer did the same thing, and I wanted that 'feature' again so I'd have time to get to whatever it is I'm making right on time. This is a benefit to me, and I wouldn't want it any other way. *The ringing bell 'sound' is nice. Not too loud nor too quiet. My old was so loud you'd jump if you were right next to it! I can hear this easily, anywhere in the kitchen area and beyond. *It seems sturdily made, and I like the size. It's 2 7/8" diameter at it's widest (across base) so it's not really big. It's compact and a very nice size so not to take up too much room where you put it. And the retro look. Well, I like that. I have all sorts of high tech devices in my home, out of necessity and preference but I still have strong memories of my grandmother's kitchen and the stuff she used. Everything she had in there seemed to last forever. I realize quality level is down since then, but for heaven's sake, I want a timer that doesn't need batteries, isn't going to break down after a couple years, looks nice in my kitchen and works well. No fuss, please. And that's what I think I've got here. I'd be happy as a clam if this timer lasts half as long as any of the kitchen wears of previous generations. This is a great little timer, adorable retro look, accurate, manual function - to remind you when 'the time is up.' I don't think these are so common in the USA as I did search for them after ordering and found them more readily available in other countries - so I'd recommend to order now if you want one.
