Set a timer
I love this feature when cooking dinner. Many times, I need to set several times that run at the same time while making a large dinner. I love that I can set these timers using voice commands. There’s no need to quickly wash my hands to set the timer on the oven or microwave.

“Alexa, set timer for Roast for 10 minutes”
“Alexa, set timer for casserole for 30 minutes”

Since there is no visual clock on the echo dot, you can ask Alexa how much time is left.
“Alexa, how much time is on the Roast timer”

You can set several timers at one time.
