Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. An egg timer is a device whose primary function is to measure a set amount of time. Its primary purpose was to assist in cooking an egg in water. Some later designs allowed adjustments to measure many other cookery tasks.Traditionally these have been made as small hourglasses and the name has come to be synonymous with this form. Later mechanical countdown timers were introduced which had an adjustable dial and could be applied to a wide range of timed cooking tasks. Most recently digital timers have also been manufactured and a wide selection of software is available to perform this task on a computer or mobile phone, and the task is simple to perform on most microwaves and oven timers.
