I have two timers and I LOVE both of them for different reasons.
I just recently picked up the Oxo timer, and love it for these three reasons:
- You can time three different things at once! Plus, it has a clock!
- It tells you how long each of the individual timers has been going off before you stop it from beeping!
- It can be used as a stop watch (i.e., it can also count forward).
For timing how long a kid has to do something, I use the Time Timer because it shows them exactly how much time they have left in a way that is meaningful to them.
