With a quick glance toward the Color Alert Kitchen Timer, easily decide if you've got time to fold your laundry without burning your cookies.

The translucent dome pulses one of three different colors (green, yellow, and red) depending on how much time is left on the timer.

To set the timer, simply crank the dome to the desired time. When the time reaches zero, the alarm will sound and the dome will glow for a full minute.

Choose between two versions: analog and digital. The brushed metal digital version features a 12-hour digital clock as well as the ability to pause and restart the timer.

  • 1:10 - There has been a lot of concern over whether or not Jamie, Jon, and Joey are cigar smokers. They are not. The cigars were smoked solely for this scene.

See the time remaining at a glance

The twistable top's hue corresponds to the time remaining. It pulses green with more than 10 minutes remaining, yellow with fewer than 10 minutes, and red with fewer than 60 seconds.
