Chef’s Quad-Timer Professional. If you cook, you need to be organised. If you cook a lot, you need to be fast, accurate and bold. Alternatively you need a housekeeper. Or one of these puppies. It bleeps, it flashes, it remembers previous settings. It’s simple, it’s cool. Which is what your souffle should never be. $22.08.
Its four at-a-glance indicator lights are arranged like stovetop burners, dual-color icons that visually connect what’s being timed to what’s on your stove: Green means still cooking; red means the timer’s gone off. Expired timers count up after beeping, showing how long you may have over-cooked. A convenient batch feature recalls the last time entered with one click, for repetitive tasks like baking cookies. Patented easy-set dials work with, egg-timer simplicity. Big, easy-to-read digital LCD doubles as a clock when not timing.
