Salter 4 Way Timer With Individual Beeps
Top Customer Reviews
Wanted: one kitchen timer, digital, with hours, minutes, seconds in a clear display with easy to use buttons.
This Salter unit seems to tick all the boxes. It has a clock, four timers and a clear display. The magnet works okay - it's a magnet, what else can it do?
Otherwise, the unit itself is made of cheap rigid plastic* with buttons that are unpleasant to use. You can double click them too easily and in choosing a second timer it's too easy to reset the main clock function, which zeroes your timers. Not useful if you've got a complicated job on.
*Don't drop it on a tiled floor.
Please don't buy this. It just encourages manufacturers to build more tat in the hope we're stupid enough to spend money on it. I'd have spend double or triple on a unit with these functions that was properly made from decent materials.
We decided to opt for the Salter based on looks, functionality and its respected name in the world of cooking.
In practise we found the timer set button functions fidgety to use. The permanent time clock repeatedly reset itself to zero and the back magnet
didn't seem to be up to the job as it was often found lying on the floor.
Maybe we just got a bad one - but we won't be having another - thats for sure!
If anyone knows of a well built timer that I can take with me so I can get on with other things out of earshot of the kitchen I would be very grateful.
Don't buy it - its cheap, plasticky & within a week the buttons no longer function at all well (requiring multiple presses, usually, to activate a function). The four timers are an excellent idea, but the whole product is very badly implemented. It now sticks, by its magnet, unused on our fridge (whilst we use our very old Salter Big Time timer - which this product was bought to replace).
By the way, gave this product 1 star, because there is no option for Zero stars.
I therefore bought what I assume is the latest version (Salter 392, or the "green" one).
Even though it still 'works', I am thinking about buying another timer altogether as this one is so poor.
Firstly the buttons are much stiffer and dont seem to work as well as the older model. However, the biggest flaw is it's battery compartment. The battery cover is at the top of the back panel but when you try and set the time for the various timers, the cover slips off and the batteries fall out.
This is a serious design flaw.
Bring back the original which was a great timer.

The negative reviews about this product are sadly true. I had to return it within two months as the battery cover was so loose it kept falling off. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Amazon Customer
