Concept product design lets you set the cooking time for your food without needing a separate device.

This cooking pot concept design integrates a timer on the lid to make it more convenient for people to set their food to simmer, boil, etc. The simple design also makes us consider where and how else useful items can be integrated right where they are needed.

Time Me, spotted by Yanko Design, was designed by Wu Yi-chen , Wan Ru-yi, Liu Xiaoming, Xie Yan-cong and Zhou Zhou. The integrated timer is located on the handle you use to lift the lid off the cooking pot. Once you've covered the pot with the lid, you rotate the button on top to select your required cooking time in minutes. When the time runs out, an alarm will be emitted to let you know.
