My Egg Timer for the Pomodoro Technique


I’ve started using the Pomodoro Technique to focus myself while working. I used it once before two years ago with an app but decided when using it this time to simplify and go low-tech. And I love it. Here’s the egg timer I’m using. I sort of hate the design and feel of it but I love the mechanical ticking noise and super-loud bell. I’m patiently waiting for it to break in a few months time so I can buy a nicer one. 🙂

    Nice – I have been using the Pomodoro app (Mac) but a physical one might work just as well! I have this pig timer in the kitchen: http://www.thekitchenoutlet.com/product.php?productid=1735 🙂

      Pomodoro app was the app I had been using too. The pig timer is awesome. 🙂

    That is a very nice egg timer. Sleek.

    I use the remote beeper in the kitchen on the stove. It politely gives me a one-minute warning beep before it gets insistent.
