While this cooking timer from Amadana isn’t exactly new, I do like the falling blocks mode where each block represents a second that has passed, kind of like sand falling through an hour glass, though far more accurate. On the other hand, cooking timers are supposed to be a set it and forget it type device, so who wants to stop what they’re doing to count a pile of tiny blocks at the bottom of the screen? Thankfully there’s also a standard digital clock face that can be easily read from a distance, and like an hour glass, this timer can be stopped and started by simply flipping it over. Clever, but not $55 (5,000 yen) clever.
