  • Re-invented by ThermoWorks, this all-new version of our popular Extra Big and Loud Timer includes many improvements important to commercial customers. To start we cranked up the volume to 110 decibels to get your attention even in a noisy kitchen or on the plant floor. Choose from four volume settings. The rugged housing includes molded-in seals and rubber buttons to survive years of daily use with wet fingers. Set time quickly on the numeric keypad. No tedious up/down or scrolling buttons that run past the number you want. New and stronger magnets grip the timer to a metal surface. A flip-out tilt stand is great for counter tops and a keyhole mounts the timer on a screw. We added a count-up function to track time after the alarm sounds or for timing an event from zero. The memory keeps your last count-down setting. Big digits are legible at a distance. Foodservice, industrial plants, schools and labs need not be stuck with whimpy dime-store timers. This is a true professional time instrument. Get the Extra Big and Loud Timer by ThermoWorks and you'll know when time is up, even if you're in the other room!

Just what I was looking for
My mom is up in years and would occasionally forget she had something on the burner. I purchased this for her and she uses it all the time. She likes that it is loud and easy to use.

A timer that can be heard and lasts!
Purchased 2 a few months ago and the staff loves them. Loud, easy to read, and use. Great product that is durable and has with stood the rigors of a very busy bakery. Even with all the equipment running you can still hear this timer. A little expensive until you consider that since we have started to use these timers we have had very few missed timers leading to over bake or burnt product.

Spend the extra money for this quality commercial grade timer and save yourself the aggravation. I just ordered 5 more today.

Great....when it was working.
I was really happy with this timer until it started acting oddly after a year or so. I assumed it was time for a new battery. After replacing the battery it would beep VERY loudly at one second intervals incessantly. I followed customer service's suggestion on adjusting the battery contacts to fit the 9V battery but it did nothing to stop the beeping. Sadly it's now in the trash.

Count down, or count up! Handy! Loud!
These timers are wonderful. We have several around the house. One sits by the coffeemaker, and whoever starts the coffee in the morning presses the button to start the count-up timer. So, no more asking "How old is the coffee?". Simply look at the count-up timer to know whether it's time to start the second pot. Another Big and Loud Timer sits by the stove/oven, and is used to time things we are cooking, and is loud enough to summon someone from several rooms away. And one sits on my desk in my home office so I can use it to time phone calls, either by the count-up or the count-down function. Furthermore, when I had a question, I called, and ThermoWorks gave unparalleled customer service!

Great overall design, one huge drawback
The large display and buttons are excellent and very well designed. The timer is durable and has lasted for years in my kitchen.

There is one critical shortcoming: the timer's volume is VERY loud and even on the lowest setting it is far too loud for many households.

It should be a VERY simple design fix to reduce the lowest volume setting without changing the top-end volume....many household kitchens are not noisy and cooking is a peaceful and enjoyable experience. This timer elicits a near heart attack when you are cooking close by and it goes off.

Thermoworks... If you are reading these reviews remember that the household market is enormous! This small change makes the device much more pleasant to use at home without compromising whatsoever the professional performance.

Great timer - nice and loud!
What a great timer! Even at it's lowest volume, it's loud enough to hear rooms away! When I'm doing things upstairs I can hear the timer going off downstairs in the kitchen. We've also used it so the kids watching TV or playing their games know when it's time to stop and get ready for bed. No more saying they didn't hear me or the alarm! I also like the large easy read dial and the count up function. I would love if they could include a multiple timer function on future models. I would definitely purchase that! As an aside, I had to get a replacement as my first timer didn't work correctly from the beginning. The customer service was great and they sent a replacement immediately! I also got a MK4 Thermapen which is wonderful. I don't recall how many thermometers I've purchased and replaced. It's nice and sturdy and works like a charm. I would highly recommend the company and its products.

love the features this has
I really loved this timer and am having a hard time deciding to order another one. Mine is operational as for the timing. It's Beep has lost its desire to Beep like it did when new. I have used it about 2 years, and the last year it started giving up it' voice. I get a short quick Beep, stops, another short quick beep, stops. That is it. No nice long beep like when it was new. Battery is fine or the Digital timing would be way off. Timing is still correct, just can't leave the kitchen, when baking or cooking as now we miss the Beep. Not that inexpensive if you only get about 1 year out of this.

Why don't you have an on/off switch?
Nice timer, does everything I need. However, a screwdriver and 9V battery required every time I want use the thing is a little ridiculous. At the price point a simple on/off switch or even a series of buttons to prevent battery drain would be, I think, a feasible and necessary feature. Even more intelligent would be a battery save feature where the thing turned off after "x" amount of time of not being used.

Wouldn't buy again.

Response from ThermoWorks
We're sorry to hear that your Extra Big & Loud isn't working as expected. The battery typically lasts for 3,500 hours (or for about 1 year of ordinary use) and the fact that yours seems to be draining so quickly tells us that something is wrong. Our Tech Support team will get hold of you right away.

Excellent Timer, Well Designed
I bought this as a gift for my Mom, who is 87, and lives with me. She really likes the large display, & the large numbers on the keyboard. She likes to bake pies & cookies, and finds the timer easy to use, and loud enough to hear from anywhere in the house. This timer also makes a very good alarm clock. I'm happy I bought this product, it's well worth its price.

Home Use
Large display, loud to soft alarm beeps. Easy to follow instructions are on a coated (3 X 4.5) inch card sheet. Easy to operate. Magnets seem strong enough to hold unit to my refrigerator without sliding or falling off. Unit has a wall mount feature as well. Pullout stand frame seems durable. Fast delivery of product with the flat rate shipping.

You will need either a small Phillips head screw driver, or a small Blade head screw driver, to access the battery compartment. There is no "OFF" function, unit is always "ON". The instructions state;" Battery life is not affected by this feature".

My only minor gripe is with the (9 volt) size battery. I would have preferred a size of battery( that would fit into a standard home use battery charger.
