LARGE, CLEAR DIGITS - Just a glance from across the room and you can easily read the timer display with it's big, bold digits. Ideal for those with not the best eyesight.
COUNTS UP AND DOWN - As well as a countdown timer and minute timer this can also act as a stopwatch counting up from zero. Perfect timer for homework, exercise, gym workout, cooking ( egg timer ), sports, games and classroom timer activities. Maximum time is 99 minutes, 59 seconds.
LOUD SOUNDING ALARM - You will easily be able to hear this alarm in another room. It is loud and clear but not deafening. The mildly hard of hearing should have no problem with the alarm.
MAGNETIC BACK, RETRACTABLE STAND AND HOOK FOR HANGING - You have 3 different choices for placement of the Kitchen Timer. Either stick it to the fridge door with its large magnet, or use the pull out stand for table-top use, and finally you can run a piece of string through the hook and hang it on a wall hook or around your neck if you are on the go.
ON/OFF SWITCH - Surprisingly a lot of timers do not have an on/off switch due to the minimal power consumption. But many people prefer electrical items to be powered down after use, and with the small, subtle on/off switch on the side you can do just that.
