Find out how much more time your food needs to cook from across the room with the Color Alert Kitchen Timer. Answer such questions as: is that smell my brownies burning or does the dog have gas again? (either way you have to get up and move yourself). This timer has a dome shaped light on top that glows in one of three different colors- green, yellow, and red (just like the traffic lights we are all slaves to) to tell you how much time is left at a glance. Not only that, it comes in both analog and digital versions:
With both timers you simply twist the top to set it. The digital one gives you a clock and the ability to pause the timer. Plus they both kinda look like alien spacecraft. $9.99 for the analog and $14.99 for the digital version, batteries included. Cool stuff.
