If you're looking to not screw up the bird this Thanksgiving you may want to get this Kikkerland Pop Up Turkey Timer. It's ideal for cooking a turkey or chicken, and it's going to have your next 300 Thanksgivings covered because you can reuse it over 300 times. Made of food-grade silicone and steel, the timer works like this - when legs are down, it’s uncooked, and when legs go up, it’s cooked. Pretty simple and easy and we think a bit comical too to lighten the holiday mood.

Inserted into a turkey or chicken, this timer's legs pop up when the inside reaches 165 degrees—not 180. It's $13. [NYT, Image: Tony Cenicola/NYT]

Finally a kitchen timer that doesn't require a battery but looks good. This timer dates back to 1992, when Michael Graves designed this using ABS plastic. Only 4 inches in diameter, it fits your hand perfectly (we know because we tried our friend's timer out this past weekend).

Tired of not getting your eggs the way you want them? Well, you're in luck. Egg boiler cooks 'em perfect every time, and works on your iPad. Just choose the desired consistency, the egg temperature and egg boiler calculates the time needed for you to get perfect eggs. Start the countdown and your iPad will signal when the eggs are done. We think on the level of expensive egg timers a $500 iPad and $.99 app is a little excessive, but imagine you can use the iPad for more than just cooking eggs.

This stove shaped timer is five timers in one. I don't think I ever have five things going at once, but if you are often making big meals, it might be handy. It is made from plastic and comes in several colors.

I'm not sure how you set these, but they let you know time is up by bobbing their heads and singing a song. Comes in boy, pirate, and robot styles.

I'm not sure why you couldn't use a regular timer to time your tea brewing. But if you really want a separate timer, this has three sand timers, so you can make teas that require different steeping times. The timers are calibrated for 3, 4, and 5 minutes.
