Kitchen Timers - What's in your drawer

There are times, when it's just sheer madness. Being a host for 30 people and as much ~prep~ as I have done even 2 days earlier, just timing things so they are hot when it's time to chowdown, it always tends to be madness over my stove.

Lately, I've been pondering at kitchen timers. Such a useful little device that I don't even have in my stash of cooking tool goodies. The closest thing I do use is the timer that is built into my stove.
However, like the last time I had family over, I wish I would be able to time 3 seperate things.
My ideal timer would be nice and audbile too. Not too obnoxious but audible .

I found one timer that looked like it was a perfect fit. Mostly aluminum build, mechanical and it had 3 timers. However, my biggest gripe was that the audible alert went off for like 3-4 seconds and then it shut off. I dunno if all *mechanical* timers are like that.

So back on to the timer quest.
I might go to the MOMA store as there is 1 timer that I saw designwise that looked great. Not sure about functionality though. And buying 3 seperates is not ideal....but sometimes fashion wins over function.
