The CubeTimer is a neat Homer Simpson proof kitchen timer. Just set the duration you need face upwards on the table and off it goes. Y’know, timing. And stuff. D’oh. $14.99.
It’s preset for 5, 15, 30, and 60 minutes. To activate, simply turn the cube so the time you want is facing up. Alarm beeps when the time is up. No buttons to press, no dials to set! The numbers are easily readable. Great for timing cooking, phone calls, meetings, exercise-even a quick power nap!
