    I love the Kitchen Pad timer! It works really well. I love how the burners and the oven will "light up" when you have a dish on the timer!

    Kitchen pad is good. But for a big planned meal get:
    Cookery School Multi-Timer.
    It is a great tool. I don't understand why it hasn't shot into more popularity.
