These electronic duck-shaped timers will help you be more efficient in the kitchen and make sure you never embarrass yourself by letting a pot of pasta boil over again.

The cute kitchen aids were created by Italian design brand Alessi and were shown as part of their latest homewares collection at the Maison et Objet show in Paris last week. The design is classic Alessi: quirky, contemporary, yet incredibly functional. The design was created by by Finnish designer Eero Aarnio for Alessi. The super cute kitchen aid is made from thermoresin plastic.

These cute kitchen aids would be the perfect gift for foodie friends, or even someone moving into a new home. The duck timer is available in three colors: white, black and yellow.
