Product Description

Style Name:Retro Timer Red

Product Description

Time your kitchen tasks with style and accuracy. The Eddingtons retro timer will time anything up to 60 minutes. Simply twist the face of the timer all the way round to 60 minutes and then back to the desired time setting (this action winds the timer in a clockwork fashion to give a longer ring), when your time is up the timer will ring to notify you. Storage on any steel surface is easy with the strong built in magnet.

Box Contains

1 x Eddingtons Retro Magnetic Timer - Red

The most important thing to remember about this is that you have to turn the timer clockwise all the way to 55-minutes to wind it up, then turn it anti-clockwise back down to the time you actually want to use. Then it will ring without fail.

Great looking retro timer, perfect to stick on the front of a retro fridge.

This is a good piece of kit. It looks good with a nice deep red metal surround with chrome effect around the clock face. It's nice to the touch, metal as opposed to plastic, it's loud enough and it's idiot proof to use ie. my husband can work it. Very happy with this purchase.

I've followed the instructions - dialed it round to 55 minutes, then back to the desired time, but the bell seems to go off before the dial reaches zero
Sometimes it's at 4 minutes, sometimes it's even earlier, then it continues to count down to zero with no further alarm.

Even if you set a short time like ten minutes, it goes off after about 6 mins.

For a device thats primary purpose is to let you know when a set amount of time has elapsed, it's not really very useful if it tells you time's up when there's still four or more minutes to go.

I guess the desired degree of accuracy depends what you're timing of course, but it's not recommended for rocket scientists or nuclear physicists.
And at an inaccuracy of four minutes in ten it's not very useful in my kitchen either :(

Well contrary to other reviewers I really like this neat retro timer. Wind it to 45 minutes to start and then back to 10 minutes....10 minutess later it will ring. I had my first one for 7 months no problems, bought one for my sister and the next day knocked mine off the fridge and broke it. I liked it so much I bought another one. Looks good, handy on the fridge, good strong magnet, used correctly works fine. One point if for example you want 15 minutes timing and you only wind to twenty minutes to prepare, and then back to 15 to set it, the length of its ring will be quite short. Without overwinding it's best to wiind first to 45 or 50 and then back to 15mins.

So far so good! I bought this despite a few not so good reviews but it's proving to be very good. Seems to be well made, good strong magnet holds it firmly on the fridge without slipping down. The bell is loud enough to hear but not overbearing.....and it's pretty accurate! I timed it several times against a stopwatch and it was only about 6 seconds faster! I can live with that! If you're looking for a completely accurate timer then you'd better buy digital! For me this is a good buy and not a goodbye!

This is a great looking timer for the kitchen.

I would have given it 5 starts if it wasn't for:
1. The dial is a thin piece of card (that you can't get to) and I've got a very thin strand of plastic or something between it and the front screen. This got on my nerves at first but I've learned to ignore it (it's hardly noticable except for people like me!).
2. The silver ring around the dial came off, but I glued it back on.

I've still given this 4 stars because its still looks good and it works, maybe 3.5 stars would have been more in tune.

One of the reviewer complained that it didn't work, not sure if they had tried but in order to get buzz, you need to rotate it all the way round once, and then back to the time you want to set it to, otherwise the buzzer isn't set. Caught me out too!

I purchased this product as a present a few months ago and has stopped working, the bel no longer sounds when the timer is up. This is a very poor and has a low quality internal mechanism, and has left me embarrassed as i had bought it as a present. It looks nice but does not do what it was intended for, as it has not really been used at all. if you read this i would not recommend this product. it does not deserve the 1 star i have had to give it. would like to add it has not been dropped or sustained any damage after i received it.

I bought this as a gift, but loved it so much I endet up keeping it:) It looks and feels really great. It also works really well and as long as you wind it up right it is perfectly reliable and precise.
