It has a LED display showing the minutes and seconds of the time. There are only three buttons in front that are all self explanatory. Setting the time and alarm is really very simple.
There is a power button and a battery compartment in the back. When not in use, it makes for a perfect refrigerator door magnet.
From steeping coffee to boiling pasta, to searing steaks, to simmering dishes, and yes, even aerobic exercising, this tiny litte timer has proven to be a nifty littel gadget that is great to have around the house, and isn't just for the kitchen.
