Everything we cook on the stove top or bake in the oven requires a certain amount of time.
Most stoves, electric or gas have built in timers but we can’t always hear them go off if we are I another part of our house.
I always carry a small minute timer around the house and especially if I’m going outside to work in my flower garden. Too often I get distracted doing other things and I certainly don’t want to overcook or burn dinner.
My little battery operated timer is my buddy when I’m preparing food in the oven or on the stove top to help me keep track of how long it’s been cooking and keep me from ruining dinner or whatever else is cooking.
