Easy to use, beautiful item. Works fine. I would give it 5 stars if it could be hanged or had a magnet and if the ring was louder. Sometimes if I am out of the kitchen I cannot hear it.

This mechanical timer is made of a rubberised plastic, which feels a bit odd but is easy to grip even if you have wet hands. You set it by rotating the top half of the timer and this results in the dial on the top face showing something like a pie chart to indicate the time.

To get a long 'ring' you can set the time to 1 hour - its max - and then turn the dial back to the desired duration. It also looks very modern and is reasonably accurate.

Unfortunately the dial face is not clear, its sort of mottled and translucent rather than completely transparent and this can make it difficult to read the mid grey (about the same colour as the case) figures. The tick is loud but the 'ring' is not, ranging from a asthmatic fart to a sick rattlesnake depending on the surface its resting on.

So only 3 stars. It's OK but has been over designed and I would not recommend it for anyone with poor eyesight due to the top face masking the figures rather than being clear plastic.

We bought one of these (not from Amazon). It feels about as cheaply made and flimsy as you could imagine and keeps stopping. I gave it one star only because when the timer does eventually run down the bell actually works, but that won't bear any resemblance to the time set because you have to re-start it several times along the way. I strongly recomend that you choose something else!

Bought for my other half who is a prodigious producer of baked products. She loves it, it does everything you would need of such an item. Can't fault it.

Just beware, as the other products from this range begin to take over your kitchen...

I bought this a year ago after about 6 months it became erratic & I was having to keep an eye on the time which defeats the object of having a Timer.For the last 2 months 4 out of 5 times it stops 10 /15 minutes early.It is kept in the same place so it is not a surface issue. Today it went in the bin.

Originally delighted with this as it worked perfectly - but only for a while.

Was ideal to carry around the house when something was in the oven. Time left can be seen from a distance and the bells rings well (BUT you must wind it round to 60 minutes then back to the time you want - but WHY?).

BUT after only a few months of use mine has started to 'stick' (unless you stand it on its side - not ideal for a round piece of equipment). So, it can't be trusted any longer - one ruined meal in the oven as a result of this unreliability can cost more than the timer itself!!!

Surely it can't be beyond the capability of a manufacturer to produce a mechanical timer that will stand the test of time?

Love Joseph Joseph design however this item isn't one their better ones. The timer works fine but the alarm doesn't sound for as long as it should nor is it very loud. There is a quiet buzz and that's it. Pity

A really cleverly designed timer, I can set it by simply looking at the shape exposed rather than actually checking numbers. Very useful when eyes aren't as good as they used to be!

Superb design idea, so easy to see parts of an hour. Not that accurate if you only want to time a couple of minutes but a really useful for anything over 10 mins

This is a trendy kitchen design item. It looks and feels great, but the ring pathetic!! So quiet that it is hardly fit for purpose.
