Use and Care of KitchenAid Kitchen Timers

How to Use and Care for Your KitchenAid Kitchen Timers

KitchenAid® timers are factory-calibrated to provide precise timing for cooking, baking, and various other tasks around the kitchen. Never overcook or undercook your meal again, and enjoy perfect results every time. These timers are designed and constructed with a commitment to quality, and with proper care, they will stand up to everyday use for a long time.


Question Answer
How Can I Get the Backlight to Stay on Longer? The backlight automatically turns off after 30 seconds to protect the battery life. When needed, re-illuminate the backlight by pressing the MIN or SEC button.
How Do I Reset My Timer to Zero? To reset your timer to zero, press the MIN and SEC buttons at the same time. The display will return to 00:00.
The Alarm on My Timer isn't Loud Enough for Me to Hear. How Can I Fix This? Since the alarm speaker is on the back of the timer, it will sound muffled if it is pushed too close to a surface or held by the magnets so that the sound cannot project forward. If you need to hear the timer from outside the room it is in, we recommend setting it on the counter at least 6 inches from the wall.
How Should I Clean My KitchenAid Timer? Wipe clean with a damp cloth. Do not use abrasive cleaners, as these may scratch the timer. Dry thoroughly. Timers are not dishwasher safe and cannot be submerged in water.
