Fantastico! The Singing Pasta Chef Timer plays a melody to let you know when your pasta is "al dente"! At the boiling point, 2 beeps as the timer starts. After 8 minutes, a melody plays…at 10 minutes, 3 beeps to let you know your pasta is ready. Rinsing in cold water resets the timer and stops the melody. Polycarb plastic. Requires 2 - LR44 batteries (included).
