Kitchen timer that reminds? recommendations?

Is there a fairly loud kitchen timer that goes off and then waits about 10 minutes and then goes off again?

My stove's timer does that but I cant find a timer that does the same thing and I am wearing out the buttons on my stove

have done searches on google and at amazon but no luck

anyone have a suggestion?

I would so appreciate it :)

    thanks all, I guess an alarm clock would be the best, would rather it just ring again after 10 minutes or so because I know I'll just turn off the clock :)

    might be a good idea for someone with ambition to make a kitchen timer that rings intermittently

      The kitchen timers I have used go off until you turn them off.

      The multi timers are good if you're a little on the ADD side.

      I have the Thermoworks Extra Big Digital Timer from the same folks that sell the Thermopen thermometer. Except for the snooze/reminder type alarm, I think it's the perfect kitchen timer. It has a full calculator type keyboard, but the entire surface is sealed so stuff won't get in the buttons. It times up to 99 hours. It has a loud alarm with a volume control with 4 settings. It is industrial quality with a strong magnet that holds it securely to the fridge. Best of all, it was only $ 19.

        I have this timer that can program up to 4 times at once... so while it wouldn't automatically do a reminder, you could just set two of the timers 10 minutes apart. http://www.amazon.com/Chefs-Quad-Time...

          I use my cell phone. You can set multiple alarm settings at whatever intervals you want. My problem with stationary timers is that I tend to wander off. And NWIH am I wearing one around my neck.

            Do you have a cell phone with a timer function? It may include that feature. (I only realized that my phone could serve as a kitchen timer when cooking in my mother's kitchen. I cannot cook without one and could not figure out how to set the timer on her stove, so thought of my cell phone as a substitute).

              How about an alarm clock with a snooze button? I think many these days let you program the length of the snooze period you'd like.
