Temperature is everything. But time is pretty darn important too. So, we created an all-new version of our popular Extra Big and Loud Timer. Even if you’ve already got a great thermometer, you need a great timer.
Here are ten ways you can put a timer to work around the house:
10 – Yeast Timer
Proofing yeast takes warm water (105 to 115°F), a pinch of sugar and time. Set your timer for 10 minutes (no sooner), and when you hear the beep you’ll know it’s ready.
9 – Bathroom Timer
When a bathroom has to be shared, what better way to keep the peace than with a bathroom timer. Set the timer, and when the beeping starts your teenagers will know it’s time to stop.
8 – Tempering Your Meat
Some experts suggest tempering your steaks allows for faster, and more even cooking. Set your timer for 2 hours (the maximum time your food can be left on the counter in the temperature Danger Zone 40 to 140°F) and you can rest assured your steaks will still be safe to cook.
7 – Reading Timer
The US Department of Education suggests that children read at least 15 minutes every day. Set your Extra Big and Loud Timer and your child will know when reading time is over.
6 – Check the Briquettes
Novice grillers sometimes jump the gun and start grilling before their charcoal briquettes are ready. Light the coals and set your timer for 30 minutes. When it beeps your coals will be white hot and ready for grilling.
5 – Practice Timer
When your little ones are working on their scales, chords, sections, or penalty kicks set your Extra Big and Loud Timer to let them know when practice is over.
4 – Turn the Bird
Many recipes suggest roasting a turkey breast side down and flipping after a period of time to achieve even cooking. Set your timer and you’ll know when it’s time to turn.
3 – Get Some Exercise
The Mayo Clinic suggests that healthy adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity a week. That’s 30 minutes a day – 5 days a week. Set your timer for 30 minutes and go to work!
2 – Take a Nap
Set your timer and get some shut-eye. Don’t worry about oversleeping because the Big and Loud Timer’s 110dB’s will make sure you wake up on time.
1 – Food Safety Monitor
Set your Extra Big and Loud Timer to help remind you to get your food in the fridge so your leftovers will be safe.
Is there a way to pause the timer and then restart it?
Hit stop, but don’t hit it again to clear it. When you want to resume, simply press start again.
