Info from the company:Easy to see, hear and operate, the Epica Large Digit Timer makes keeping track of your time-sensitive tasks a cinch. Plus, it can be positioned just about anywhere you want, from a countertop to a refrigerator door to a wall hook to your belt.
Simple Count Down Operation
To set the timer, just press the M and S (minutes and seconds) buttons until the display reaches the time you wish to elapse before the alarm sounds. To start the countdown, press the Start/Stop button; to stop or pause it, press Start/Stop again. Remaining time will be displayed until you clear the settings (by pressing the M and S buttons simultaneously). The Epica's maximum reading is 99 minutes, 59 seconds.
Easy to See and Hear
The Epica lets you know when time is up even if you're not close at hand. Its 1.5" x 2.5" display with extra-large numbers can be read up to 50 feet away. The alarm is loud enough to be heard in the next room; and it continues to beep for a full minute, unless you manually shut it off sooner.
Automatically Returns to Last Setting
When you need to perform the same timed task over and over, such as boiling eggs, the Epica simplifies your life by automatically resetting itself to the last time entered. All you have to do is press Start/Stop again when the next batch of eggs goes in the water.
Built-in Table Stand, Magnet, Spring Clip and Hanging Hook
You can position the Epica just about anywhere and read it from nearly every angle, thanks to its ingenious 4-way mounting design. The fold-out stand is great for horizontal surfaces such as a kitchen counter or shelf.
The Epica Large Digit Timer is accurate to 60 sec./month and comes with a 1 year warranty.
My take on it:
This timer is very simple, where you can use it as both a timer and a stopwatch. It is more bulky than the other timer I tried out. This one is white with grey accents. It has plastic housing. The display is quite large, with it displaying the large digits clearly. There is no backlighting.
This is the second Epica timer I've gotten the opportunity to try out. It is very simple and easy to use.
To set the timer, you press the min and sec buttons to the time you want to countdown to. If you hold the button down, it will move faster, but be careful, because if you go over, you have to start over again. Once you have the time you want inputted in there, just press the start / stop button and it will countdown.
The timer will beep repeatedly when the timer is up.
To clear the screen to zero, press min and sec at the same time.
To use the stopwatch, you start at zero and press start / stop. It will start to count up.
This timer is powered by one AAA battery that is included. (Love that it's included)
You can either stick it to the fridge or stove hood with the magnet on the back or you can use the little stand embedded in the back to prop it up on the counter or table. This timer also has a small loop that you can hang it from a nail if you'd like also.
Simple product that works perfectly. I am very pleased.
