How to Set the Clock on a West Bend Timer
West Bend timers are kitchen timers that help cooks keep track of the remaining cooking time for their recipes. The timers allow for three different timer settings, which is useful when making more than one recipe at a time, each with different cooking times. In addition to the timer function, the West Bend timer is a clock. You need to set the clock when you first use the timer and any time you replace the timer's battery.
