    My Polder Triple Timer/Clock/Stopwatch, which I hang over my desk, has died. Not surprising, since I knock it down a lot. It's maybe the third one I've had over many years -- they all suffers the same fate. I like it, but wonder if there is something else out there that would hold up better.

    What I need:

    1. Clock, preferably 12/24, with a reasonably sized display (this one is about 1/2 inch high in a space 1 3/8 inches wide
    2. Stopwatch (same dimensions)
    3. At least two count-down timers
    4. Magnetic back so I can hang it off my cabinet door

    I've read reviews of several of the timers offered by Amazon (the one I have is the Polder 891-90), but trust folks here more. Do you have anything similar, and how do you like it?

    I ended up getting a Maverick, with clock, 3 timers, and a stopwatch. Man, it is LOUD. And it was very inexpensive, at Bed, Bath & Beyond.

    This SALTER CLOCK AND MULTI-TIMER is just what you want.  It's both a count-down and a count-up timer and has a clock function and is 4-timers-in-1.
