I love timers. I have two or three in my kitchen, but this is my new favorite. It is just what it says: Extra big, extra loud. You'll never miss this timer's beeping; it's loud enough to drown out your music. But it can be adjusted; there are four levels of volume. It also has a strong magnet, a waterproof casing, and a big display so you can see it from across the room. What more could you want in a kitchen timer?
