editor's review




CookTimer Portable is a software tool which was built specifically to aid people in letting them know when a custom period of time has run out.

Use it on the fly

As the name clearly states, this is a portable product, which means that you can easily bypass the installation process. As a result, it is not going to update the Windows registry and Start menu/screen with new entries without your approval (as installers usually do).

In addition to that, you should know that if you copy the program files to a removable data device, you make it possible to run CookTimer Portable on any computer you are granted access to.

Unobtrusive and clean interface

The interface you come by encloses a pretty simple layout, as it only consists of a few buttons and the actual timer. Although there are no Help contents incorporated, all types of users can find their way around it with ease.

In addition to that, you should know it can be rendered non-obtrusive by simply placing it to the system tray with just a click of the button.

Options to tinker with

This application comes packed with a few presets that you can take advantage of, so that you do not always have to input the time, a feature which enhances ease of use. It is also possible to manually input the period you want to countdown from, automatically restart the timer when it reaches zero and enable the ring to go on forever, so that you can be sure you will hear it.


To sum up, CookTimer Portable is a pretty efficient piece of software, which is suitable to all types of users. The response time is good, the amount of resources required is insignificant and we did not detect any kind of errors, crashes or bugs is our tests.
