Duck Timer is a practical, amusing timer for the kitchen. The electric minutes counter by Eero Aarnio has the curious shape of a duck with a long neck.
With its functional as well as playful message and its animal-like shape, the Duck Timer is perfectly suitable for Aarnio’s design. The typical alarm clock-like signal tone was substituted by a friendly duck-chatter.
This timer for the kitchen reminds us of common, mechanic egg timers when they are used: The time is adjusted by turning the ring which makes up the central point of the corpus. Turned in the direction of a normal clock’s pointers you select minutes, and the opposite direction is to select seconds for the timer to start to ring. The Alessi Duck Timer consists of thermoplastic resin, which is robust and easy to clean.
