Cooking Timer is a simple and free to use dual function app which acts as both a Kitchen Timer and a Cooking Timer.
• Schedule cooking each part of a meal so everything finishes at the same time
• Get alerted when it is time to start cooking the next part of a meal
• Adjust the cooking time by advancing, retarding, and pausing the timer
• Create and save meals for all your favourite recipes
• Use it as a simple kitchen timer for single items
• Save presets for your commonly used timers
• Use your device for other things while the app is running in the background.
• Not just for cooking, can be used to time and schedule anything that has multiple steps that need to all complete at the same time.

Kitchen timer

Run a single one-shot timer by adding minutes from a number of presets, or by selecting one of your own preset timers.

Add and deduct 1 minute from the timer for fine adjustment.

Create your own preset timers and assign them to a recognisable name - such as boiling an egg, cooking pasta.

Start the timer and get notified when the timer expires and an alert is sounded.

Pause, resume, advance, and retard the timer while it's running.

Cooking scheduler

When you are cooking a meal that has numerous parts or items, each item usually has a different cooking time. But you want the whole meal to finish cooking at the same time to avoid items being overcooked, or go cold and have to be re-heated. Cooking Timer helps you with this by automatically working out when each item needs to start cooking, and then alerting you, so everything finishes cooking at the same time.

Simply create a meal adding each of the cooking steps with their individual cooking time, and optionally set a start after (delay) and finish before (resting) time.

Then start cooking and all the steps are automatically ordered and listed by when they need to start so they all will finish together.

Get notified when a step is due to start by a flashing arrow next to the item and an alert is sounded.

Optionally pause the cooking timer when the next item due to start.

Pause and resume the cooking timer - useful if you get delayed or distracted.

Advance and retard the cooking times - useful if you miss the start time of an item or just need to allow more cooking time.

Show the cooking timer and each item's start time as a clock (24 or 12hr) or as a counter.
