My dog needs four kinds of eyedrops every morning which must be given at least 10 minutes apart. I give myself 35 minutes between drops, enabling some half-hour work sessions. I simply get started with the Timolol, slip the lanyard on, press a button, the 35 minutes from the prior timer use appears by default, and I press another button to start the 35-minute countdown. Voila! My husband uses his for a slow-trickle watering of our hemlocks. This timer is also great for pulling clothing out of the dryer. . . any task where you want to wander to another part of the house or yard and would be out of earshot of a stationary timer. Mine is white, hubbie's is black, so we don't get them mixed up. Highly recommended.
Excellent timer. Magnets could be stronger but they work. I accidentally dropped it into a pot of simmering hot and sour soup yesterday, fished it out,rinsed it off, dried it, and it was still keeping time. what more can you ask.
great functionality, but hard for my arthritic fingers to mash the buttons. also, don't like that the mode automatically resets to the clock function after just a few minutes. and lastly, i was grilling outside and the signal does not function in cold weather. I set the timer and although it counts down there is no signal. After i went inside and warmed up i tested the timer and it worked fine, back outside, no sound.
The TimerStick is a well-designed product that is very helpful. Besides being of great help in the kitchen when I am cooking and baking, I use it for sports and other activities. The magnet and lanyard are great. Having the countdown and count up features make this very worthwhile to own.
Simple and Functional. I use it every day. It hangs around my neck and slides into my pocket (my magnet fell out the first week). Braises, Bread proofing, Slow cooks, Hot Pan sears to 6 minute oven. Timing is everything. This let's me have a life and cook as well. I may need to go to the three timer version. (I could take a 45 minute nap during a two hour sour dough proof.)
We’ve very happy to hear that you’re enjoying your TimeStick so much. However, we are sorry to hear that the magnet fell out. It should not have happened, and we want to make things right.
We’ve made arrangements for you to receive a replacement TimeStick. You’ll receive it soon!

FINALLY, a little timer with a LOUD enough ring at a great price. We use it daily and I appreciate that I can hear it from another room. The brand we used to like you can barely hear if you're 10 feet from it, so this is an excellent improvement. Absolutely no complaints; easy to read and set and use.
I would definitely recommend this product to add a level of flexibility and mobility in a commercial kitchen. As bakers, we move around almost continuously and would often get in each other's way when using one common timer. We bought two TimeSticks just to try them out. Now everyone in the kitchen area wants one! Thank you for creating such a convenient tool.
The timer works as advertised. Its easy to use, handy enough to run around the kitchen with it on your person and chimes loudly when its time to do something. If I were in a commercial kitchen I would have one for everyone, color coded so its owner knows what's going on.
I love my Thermapen MK4 and my Time Stick. I've been turning out perfectly cooked meat ever since I started using them. No more dried out chicken breast. There is a very small window of opportunity to get white meat, completely cooked, and yet still juicy. These fantastic tools allow you to achieve perfection. Finally, exquisite med rare steaks. Anything else with my family involves the death penalty. Well not really, but listening to them all complain that their steak isn't the way they like it during an entire meal, seems like cruel and unusual punishment. NOW, they insist that dad cook the steaks!
However, for no apparent reason, my Time Stick quit working. I put new batteries in it, I prayed over it, I begged it, NOTHING!
Can I send it in to be repaired? By the way folks, all of these products make really great gifts that are unique and truly appreciated. I have probably 7 of the Thermo-works products, including a dual probe for the oven. Don't wast time or money on inferior products! One perfectly cooked steak is worth the price!
We’re so glad you’re enjoying your Thermapen Mk4 and TimeStick. Thank you so much for your kind words. Our Tech Support team has sent you a replacement TimeStick.
As a note: If you ever need help with a ThermoWorks product, please feel free to contact our Tech Support team at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 1-800-393-6434. They’re always happy to help!

So far, the TimeStick seems to work very nicely. The only thing I don't like is that the alarm is not loud enough. It's fine when I have the lanyard around my neck, but if I have it stuck to the side of the fridge, you can hardly hear it in the kitchen. I don't know what some of the other reviewers were referring to, but there is no way anyone could hear mine in another room. I have one of the big, loud timers, which I actually prefer, but when grilling outside, with the lanyard, the TimeStick is fine.
The TimeStick is a nice timer, with a convenient size and is easy to carry or attach to metal with its strong magnet. It is plenty loud enough. I like the feature that tells me how long it has been since the timer went off. The status bars are not useful. I wish the buttons were larger for my fingers to operate, and I would rather have a larger timer to facilitate larger buttons.
In the past I had been using the cheapo timers and really disliked them all. When I ran across the Time Stick I had to get one. It is the best and easiest to use timer ever. So good in fact I bought a second one.
I have just purchased two time sticks as gifts. I have had my own for nearly two years, oand have found it an extrodinarily upseful device. First of all any timer should have a full numeric board - check. I also love the three modes : - clock, countdown timer and count up timer. I make use of all three modes when cooking. Finally an accessory I thought I'd never use the lanyard. Can't remember how many times with other timers where I'd set it and not remember where I'd set it down - another annoyance addressed.
I got tired of wasting money on cheap plastic timers that were guaranteed for life but failed within a year. I then bought a very nice all metal timer from a cooking shop which was expensive but it's still working great. Only problem is it's heavy and inconvenient. I love the TimeStick because it's thin, sleek, loud and very accurate. My favorite feature is being able to hang it on the lanyard around my neck and don't have to stay close to my kitchen waiting to listen for my older timer. I bought several others when they were on sale and gave them as gifts. Everybody loves their TimeStick. The colors are fun and easy to see if you should lay it down. America's Test Kitchen's rating as being their choice was influential in my buying this item. I love all my ThermoWorks kitchen gadgets.
I like this timer. Option to wear on a lanyard, put in pocket, attach to surface using the magnet, or simply put on counter is versatile. The count up and timer features are great- on the timer feature it will start counting up from the time the timer alarmed, telling you how much time you were over. The buttons are easy to press.
I have been looking for a stopwatch for years. (to time tasks) I've got timers and clocks. ...and I don't own a smart phone. So this little bundle does it all. One stays at work, the other is in my pocket.
