Think about this: the best kitchen timer, one that doesn’t need batteries anymore. From our experience, timers with batteries don’t last that long, and you have to buy batteries, too. It’s a good thing that the best mechanical timer in our review is the Albayrak Kitchen Timer, which doesn’t need batteries and works just as accurately as digital timers that are plugged in or have batteries.
The Albayrak Kitchen Timer is made from the highest quality materials, specifically, 304 stainless steel. This is a full and heavy kitchen timer that doesn’t need a power source to work. Turning the knob will activate a series of springs inside that transforms your knob twist into mechanical energy.
The saucer-shaped look is also great to look at, and this timer has a strong magnetic back, making it possible to attach to any metal surface without additional adhesion. You can stick it to your oven, to your refrigerator (if you feel like it), or anywhere there’s a metal the magnet can adhere to.
Keep in mind that this is a multifunctional timer. Anyone can use it in the family, so it’s best to get more than one so there would be no swiping of the timer from the kitchen!
This is where it gets more interesting. This alarm has absolutely no batteries, but it has a 70-decibel loud alarm that activates the moment the arrow strikes zero. If you are a fan of conventional alarm clocks back in the day, you’re going to love this little timer. It operates on the same principle of mechanical clocks with alarms, and it will work every time, each time, for a lifetime.
