The little timer that does everything

Continue reading below

Anyone who has ever been out of the room and didn’t hear the timer go off — and subsequently ruined whatever was cooking — will appreciate Joseph Joseph’s portable digital timer ($12). Fitted with a clip for attaching to an apron or other clothing, a lanyard for hanging around the neck, a strong magnet for mounting on a refrigerator or oven, and a support for standing on a counter, the timer can always be with you. It’s small enough to fit into a pocket and large enough to read easily. It also works as a clock. This little item does everything.  Available at Kitchen Outfitters, Acton Woods Plaza, 342 Great Road, Acton, 978-263-1955; KitchenWares by Blackstones, 215 Newbury St., Boston, 857-366-4237; Tags Hardware, Porter Square Shopping Center, 29 White St., Cambridge, 617-868-7711.  JEAN KRESSY
