Making The Best Use of Time
Many people realize that time is very important and we only have so much of it in a day to do our jobs, prepare meals, and kid’s homework, etc. Time can be our worst enemy. The Miracle Timecube timer can help to control kids, cooking, reading, playing and watching TV. The white timer cube has four preset minutes’ options (5, 15, 30, & 60) to choose from.
You just select the time you want and place the preset minute face showing up near you. This starts the timer to countdown. During this phase, a red light in the cube will be flashing indicating that the timer is active. You can see the digital countdown timer to determine how much time is left. When the timer reaches zero, it will beep. You have the option to have the beep sound on low or high. It will keep on beeping until you place the cube into the zero position. This would be the blank side of the cube.
Note: Some cube models have a zero printed on that side of the cube to inactivate the timer.
The cube will remain in the inactive mode until you flip it to a time you want. This can be for anything including cooking meals. As long as the timer need fits the preset timing options, you have no problem. Otherwise, you need to purchase other cubes that have the preset times you need.
Other timer preset cube minute options are listed below:
Purple: 5, 10, 20, 30
Blue: 1, 3, 5, 7
Yellow: 5, 10, 20, 45
Green: 1, 5, 10, 15

Questions People Are Asking About This Product
Below are some examples of the questions people are asking about this product.
Question: How loud is the beep?
Answer: It has a very distinct beep louder than our microwave or oven timer.
Question: It has an On Off switch. But if I just store it on zero, will the battery run down?
Answer: No. The battery will still last for a good while. I forget to turn my cube off all the time and I haven’t changed my batteries yet.
Question: Is the cube waterproof?
Answer: No. It is not waterproof. It can stand up to some splashing from the kitchen sink.
Question: How durable is it? What if it drops (perhaps in a busy room with lots of hand preschoolers)?
Answer: Ours has dropped a few times and not broken yet and I’ve had it about 3 years now. The one time I thought it had broken it turned out to just be a low battery. The one thing I would say about using it in a busy class setting is that kids always want to pick it up and turn it around which means the timer will stop and you can’t re-start it where you left off. It’s happened to me more than once. The good part about it is that if you’ve got your hands full with little ones it only takes a split second to set.
Question: Does it make noise (like a ticking sound, etc) as it counts down the time?
Answer: It makes one beep when it begins to time, then it is totally quiet until it beeps to tell you the time is up. You can turn the battery off when you are not using the timer and it flashes a tiny red circle on the side of the time you selected while it is timing. The red light is not bothersome or really bright. It is quiet.
