Default Dial type countertop appliance timer for the kitchen?

Does anyone make a dial type countertop appliance timer for the kitchen?

I want to be able to plug my coffee maker in, turn the dial to make it
brew for 15 minutes, then have it shut off. I like iced coffee in the
summer and always forget to shut the plate off afterwards to let it cool
down. Is there an inexpensive timer like that sold?

To clarify this, I'm looking for something almost like the mechanical dial
egg timers, but with switched power in it. Something I can dial to 10 or
15 minutes, it will brew my coffee, then turn the coffee maker power off.

It's a shame that usenet has to be mostly populated with trolling
minimum wage workers who have to take out their frustrations by being
abusive to people here.

You forgot to mention those who blame others for their shortcomings.
Look in your mirror to see an ignoramus who can't read
--or can't comprehend.

Don't mind him, he's just a dumbass. I know what you're taking about by the
way but I have not seen one of those in stores, only at flea markets.

Try looking at photo supply shops. Those timers used to be
used for timing exposure of prints for do it your selfers.
Alternatly you could get a bathroom fan timer (mounts in the
wall in place of a on/pff switch), from HD, but you'd have to
mount it in a box of some sort.

Thanks. I actually found that they call them spring wound timer switches
and like you said, they have them for wall receptacles, but not in boxes,
that I can find yet anyway.

Doesn't look like it from here. atleast not conveniently.
those pushbutton ones need a lot if fiddling to set the time
and the 24 hour rotary ones don't have the needed precision,

OP apparently wants something like the clockwork timers common on cheap
microwave ovens but with a socket to connect the coffee machine.

Bye.

They have this at Home Depot:

Intermatic
20 Amp 125 Volt AC 60-Minute White Spring-Wound Time Switch
Model FD60MW
Price: $15.99/ea
http://www.homedepot.com/cmc_upload/...s/eplus/078275
005068_3.jpg

I'm just looking for it already in a box, because if you buy it like
that from Home Depot, the electrical boxes they have that would fit it,
are very crude, for inside walls. So I'd have to make a big project out
of it, which I don't have time for.

I just want something like that in finished form for the kitchen
counter.

It's also a shame that there are people of sufficiently low intelligence who
post to electronics groups asking about gadgets instead of searching
themselves.

Sold in just about every department store (Woolworths, KMart etc) or
electronic shop - about $10 or less these days

I think this may work. It's definitely an intended use for this timer
but it is large and perhaps too expensive but I don't have the price.

http://www.hubert.com/store/p-detail...9346&srchlnk=3

I know my percolator draws 1000 Watts; this timer can support resistive
loads (like a coffee-maker) up to 1200 Watts.

I suspect a used darkroom timer may be jut the ticket, so long as it
supports the power of your coffee-maker. In fact, this Cook's timer
looks just like a Gralab Model 300; which, btw, also supports a 1200
Watt resistive load. Check ebay for: gralab timer

Kindest Regards,
Bjorn
