Kitchen Timer

Emma Caselton's ingenious design for a recipe holder has a little bar that moves down the sheet, telling the cook exactly what to do and when to do it. Brilliant! [Yanko design]

    I suppose it’s simpler than setting up the dinner cooking operations in a CCPM network and then executing them by using Microsoft Project.

    Because remembering which step you just completed two seconds ago is so hard.

    It needs to sound an alarm when it passes the line for each key point – I think that would be the killer feature for something like this.

    Garr, I think you missed the point. Its not about have the steps in order, all recipes have that. Its about getting the timing right, which is something a lot of inexperienced cooks (myself included) struggle with when they are learning, so you don’t end up with cold veggies when the chicken is done, for example.

    Dustbuster7000 @ 3: That’s right! It does take a while for new cooks to get that timing right.

    Now, all they need to do is print various recipes on clear sheets, with the ‘Enjoy!’ all lined up at the bottom, so you can mix and match the various recipes, instead of being tied to their menus.

    Or: have software that, after selecting the various dishes desired, will print out a sheet suitable for the timer.

    Yup, this is a good find.
