The Right Timer Makes a Huge Difference in the Kitchen

Kitchen Timer Buyers’ Guide

How does a kitchen timer work?

Kitchen timers are what any cook needs, as they help you measure the exact time the dish has spent cooking. Digital kitchen timers are essentially quartz clocks with special electronics, and will obviously be much more precise and accurate than manually-activated mechanical timers. Kitchen timers have a digital display and can be used as a stopwatch or a timer to help you cook your dish to the desired amount. Integrated circuits lie at the base of a kitchen timer and are implemented as a simple single-chip computer system, like a watch but made bigger and with more functions to achieve maximum functionality in the kitchen. Many kitchen timers are now implemented in software by using a programmable logic controller (PLC) rather than a box full of electromechanical parts to make it more compact and easy-to-use.

How to set a digital kitchen timer?

Before starting to cook, it is highly recommended that you read the manual or instruction guide that comes with the timer. Digital timers may be similar but can have varying functions that are controlled by different buttons. It is also important that you know how your timer works before you start to cook, so as to not mess up the process by leaving the food in the oven too long while you are figuring the buttons out. There are usually 4 buttons on a standard kitchen timer. There is a minutes button marked “M” and a seconds button marked with “S”. These are the buttons used to set the required time that you want the timer to measure. The button marked “SET” which you press to set the time, so no changes can be made. There is also a “start/stop” button for when you want to activate the countdown or pause it.
