When sound is not enough, this timer includes an audible alarm and vibration alerts when time has been reached. Vibration and beep alerts can work together or vibrate only, depending on notification needs. Alone in the kitchen, stand it on the counter and set it to vibrate & beep. Hosting a party, use the integrated belt clip attachment and set it to vibrate to mingle and attend to guests. Its multi-use, portable, and versatile options make this simple-to-use, push-button timer is a basic kitchen staple.
