Three times the timer

Maverick Professional Digital 3-Line Timer and Clock, TM-03

It’s winter, and winter spells delicious. The cold weather encourages us to stay inside to cook rather than hunt down food in the wilds of our shopping centers. Maybe that’s why holiday season comes at the end of the year. Either way, there’s going to be a whole lot of cookin’ going on.

Whether you’re cooking for friends, family or yourself, you are going to need keep an eye on what’s on the stove. Often, this means a kitchen timer. The Maverick Professional Digital 3-Line Timer and Clock keeps track of up to three events at once. Most stovetops have four burners, so if you’re cooking for a crowd, I guess someone will just have to stand guard on the fourth burner. That is, unless you can think of a way to avoid Aunt Sally’s Boiled Green Bean Surprise this year.

Know when to be hungry with the Cube Timer

Cube Timer

Kitchen timers may not be difficult to operate, but that doesn’t mean they couldn’t be made easier to use. The Cube Timer takes the process and makes it as easy as possible. Just pick up the cube and put it back down again with the desired time interval on top. The timer counts down from a 5, 15, 30 or 60 minute setting, while the “0” setting stops the timer in progress. For those that can’t stand the suspense, an LED readout displays the exact time remaining–good news for the hungry clock-watchers that tend to gather by the stove around dinnertime.

Triple Timer times in any era

Triple TimerHoused in a cast-aluminum frame, this Triple Timer features classic styling and elegant grace. Looking like a set of controls that might have come from some sort of steampunk airship, the countdown starts from either 20, 60 or 120 minutes. With easy to read numbers and retro-molded knobs, the three separate timers are complete and ready to go. No need to attach any gears, levers or steam pipes.

Perhaps in a nod to its old-timey styling the timer also includes a “voluminous audible signal”, which is something I’m betting no wimpy battery-operated digital timer can match.

UPDATE: Sold out at the link above, but apparently available at Williams-Sonoma.
