Bought this timer in the mint color several months back. Like most of my purchases from World Market it felt like a quality item, looked great, and we used it weekly while cooking meals. Unfortunately, the internal cogs (plastic) did not hold up long under normal use. Last week the timer started acting finicky, and now it's completely given out -- the buzzer still works fine, but it no longer keeps time. Disappointing!
Great product, easy to use, colors are great, small to fit into your cabinets. Giving one away for a gift.
These timers are very sturdy and well made. Between their size and the magnetic base, these are great for sticking on the vent hood where they are handy but out of the way. Plus, they make a nice accent in the kitchen. The bell is loud enough to hear in another room. It is, however, not as loud as our regular oven timer, microwave timer, or the timer on our phones. If the TV in the other room is turned up loud enough, we don't always hear it. This is not a criticism. I actually like that it's a little on the softer side for an alarm and has a pleasant ring. While I"m glad it isn't one of those timers that goes off until you turn it off, I do wish the alarm was a bit longer by about 30 seconds. Not enough to downgrade the ranking but enough to wish it were a little longer. Because it is a bit softer, sometimes it takes a bit longer to hear it if I've had to go to another room. I still love it and am not complaining. If my Dad who has hearing difficulties and wears a hearing aid is cooking, he can't use it as it is not the right tone and volume for him. Everyone in my family and everyone who has been in my kitchen loves it for both functionality and looks.
These kitchen timers are functional and fun! They magnet to any metal surface. And they keep time up to an hour which covers most of my baking needs. The ring is charming and just long enough to let you know when your baked goods are ready. A really fun addition to my kitchen!
