Cooking on Time

Well here’s a novel idea; an integrated timer on a pot lid called Time Me. Set exactly how long something is to simmer, boil, blanche and whatever else cookbooks tell you to do. This idea seems so obvious. If you’ve seen something similar, shoot me a link otherwise I’m going to have to call Captain Oblivious because this is most certainly a job for him. There’s no mention of what kind of “ding” the timer will make, because you know – that ding is very important. Zojirushi rice cookers hum a little diddy when they’ve completed their cook cycle. This needs something similar.

    Usually the timer is kept separate so you can throw the pan lid into a bowl or dishwasher for cleaning without worrying about damage to the timer. The timer mechnism could be sealed, but seems complicated and unneccesary when you can just have a timer on the work surface beside you.

    Not a smart design at all, and this concept effort shouldn’t take up five people at all.

    From a quality point of view. you’re fixing it with one screw from the bottom through a round hole(no fixation against rotaion). This screw screws inside a plastic part constantly heating up and cooling down. it will start to relaxate and in the end you will be rotating the whole feature instead of setting the time. think about adding an extra cam or screw to prevent rotating.
