bookofjoe's Favorite Thing: Pyrex Digital Timer
Pyrex just came out with a completely new design for its ubiquitous kitchen timer and it is a work of art.
Elegant design, simple to operate, and cheap: what more could you want from a tool?
I was, frankly, stunned at the beauty of the device and its easy functionality.
Apple-esque in everything but price.

RTFL (Reading The Formal Link) uncovers the existence of magnets to hold this timer in place. It also discloses that the timer lacks sufficient granularity for my needs (settable in minute increments until the 30 min mark then settable in five (5) minute increments until reaching 120 minutes, thereafter settable in 15 min increments).

Magnet? I keep my timers (yes, I use several when the circumstances call for them) at eye-level nearest the project/pot requiring time monitoring.
I like to be able to use my timers to count up as well as count down - cooking Sous Vide where certain items can call for 72 hrs (and, occasionly, longer!) makes seeing the elapsed time a quick glance rather than a subtraction problem - and, it's nice to know if the charcoal chimney has burned too long and needs a top-off.
Magnets also do a fine job holding timers in place when felines try hockey @ 0200.

I'm sorry, I wasn't aware of any Pyrex timer thing anywhere - all I could see was this gorgeous, soft, downy dove-gray cat with a white chest & white-tipped, turned-under Buddha-paws and a salmon-pink nose and cherubic cheeks and an inscrutable smile and a little bit of green showing in her half-closed eyes. *sigh*
