Proper Timer Setting?

I have two things I would like clarified.

Are the two larger numbers on the display hours and the smaller two minutes?

Next, is the intended design/approach to bring the water to the temperature you want and THEN start the timer?

Curiously yours…


Curtis, Yes to both questions. Starting off with hot tap water reduces the initial warming time.

I appreciate the response, John. Working on that premise, I should set my desired temp and return to the unit/place in my food/set the timer AFTER it is at the desired temp, correct?

Thanks again!


Yes you want to wait until it reaches the set point before you start timing.
