With "Daiso", I found a slightly unusual kitchen timer that can be operated by turning the dial. It is a 500 yen product excluding tax, but I would like to introduce it because I felt sufficient cost performance.
Daiso's "Digital Timer Dial Type" is a timer with a diameter of about 6.5 cm and a round and simple design. It has a magnet on the back and can be used by installing it in a microwave oven or refrigerator.
The time is set by a dial that turns the timer frame. It is easy to make fine adjustments because it gives a ticking feeling to your finger. For example, even when setting "30 seconds", you do not have to keep pressing it like a button type, so you can set it very smoothly.
The start / stop is detected in a wide range of the lower half, so you can operate it without hassle. Although it is compact, the "minute" display is large, so it is easy to grasp the approximate time during cooking. In addition, it has an auto-off function that automatically stops the alarm after 1 minute and a count-up function.
At first glance, this item is simple but packed with convincing functions. In fact, it looks and functions exactly like the "dial kitchen timer" sold by MUJI. Although the time display part is different, Daiso's products are priced quite well. MUJI timers are no longer sold as long as they are in stock, so if you are looking for one, why not check out Daiso?
