this is a very cool retro-looking timer, which i got to use in my office for work and exercise sprints -- you know, when i say, "i'm going to do ten minutes of stretching for a break" or "i'm going to work for 25 minutes on writing this blog." it's magnetic so it sticks to my white board and is handy. it works fine for my purposes, because i'm always in the room with it. it's not very precise, though, so you couldn't use it to cook a three-minute egg with any accuracy, and when it dings, it's not loud enough to get your attention if you're in the next room. If you need it for cooking or exact timing, get a digital timer.
