    I have three of the thermoworks big and loud timers, they have been great and used multiple times daily. Their customer service is great also, when Abby was a pup the timer went off and it was sitting on the coffee table and she hit it with her nose and knocked it off the table onto the hardwood floor breaking the stand. I called thermoworks and told them exactly what happened, the lady laughed and said will get a new stand out to me right away. It was here in two days at no charge.
    Two are three years old and one is about two. No problems whatsoever. The alarm volume is adjustable from low to I can here it in the garage even if it's in the kitchen.

    I'll admit I haven't read every post on this thread.
    Has anyone tried a multi-timer app for their smartphone? Seems there are a few to chose from.
    Personally, I very rarely use a timer for anything, if I need one I tell Google Assistant to set a timer for X amount of time.

    Well, when this one goes goes up, I guess I’ll go the timestack route.
    We shall see.
    Bob, I have a cell phone that is one step removed from a tin can and a string! I’m not overly interested in getting an app but, I might end up doing something along that line sooner or later.
    I simply resist things in the electronic world for the most part.

    Replacement is on the way from Maverick along with a return label for the blown one so they can figure out what happened! My outrage with the company is being assuaged. So I guess aside from the inconvenience I’m not out anything.

    Well, customer service came through with flying colors! This morning a replacement arrived and lit right up as soon as I go out, I will send the dead one for diagnostic surgery back at the office. Since the first one was so good the standard was set for me I hope this one lives up to snuff!
    Good points for Maverick Customer Service! They heard the complaint and were smart enough to jump right on the complaint and do the right thing.

    I am a big Thermoworks fan. I have two Smoke remote thermometers (worlds better than my previous Mavericks), and I have two different Timesticks (around the neck timers - one is a clock or timer, the other is three timers in one). My latest is my Big and Loud timer for the kitchen. I use my timers daily and am extremely pleased with them. Their customer service is WAY better than Maverick, also.

    Fwiw

    I will say that the “Please return the old one if you don’t mind” statement using their return mailer was not expected. I hope they figure out what the problem was.
    I hear a lot of complaint about Maverick products but, for the most part, aside from a couple of this model going bad prematurely the rest of their units have served me pretty well.
