Kitchen Timer needed

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My Polder Triple Timer/Clock/Stopwatch, which I hang over my desk, has died. Not surprising, since I knock it down a lot. It's maybe the third one I've had over many years -- they all suffers the same fate. I like it, but wonder if there is something else out there that would hold up better.

What I need:

1. Clock, preferably 12/24, with a reasonably sized display (this one is about 1/2 inch high in a space 1 3/8 inches wide
2. Stopwatch (same dimensions)
3. At least two count-down timers
4. Magnetic back so I can hang it off my cabinet door

I've read reviews of several of the timers offered by Amazon (the one I have is the Polder 891-90), but trust folks here more. Do you have anything similar, and how do you like it?

I ended up getting a Maverick, with clock, 3 timers, and a stopwatch. Man, it is LOUD. And it was very inexpensive, at Bed, Bath & Beyond.

Cook's Illustrated recommends the Polder  893-90 but the reviews on Amazon are not too favorable

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=polder+893-90&x=15&y=21

However, this is the one I see the chefs wearing on America's Test Kitchen TV show and it is highly rated and less expensive

This SALTER CLOCK AND MULTI-TIMER is just what you want.  It's both a count-down and a count-up timer and has a clock function and is 4-timers-in-1.

Best and I'm a foodie.   I know very little but the little that I know I want to know very well.
