LAP Digital Weekly Immersion Timer 240V
I know this has been mentioned in other reviews, but the display really is useless unless you have a magnifying glass to hand. The settings are awkward and painstaking and not helped by the enclosed instruction leaflet. Hopefully once it is set properly it will be Ok But I'm not holding my breath.

Does job but v small display
Bought as a towel rail timer outside a bathroom.
As other reviewers: Very Very small display, I needed a magnifier and torch to read when holding in my hand let alone in a dark cupboard.
Yes, only a single centre earth terminal, OK for a towel rail with 1.5mm cable but if 2.5mm cable and flex for an immersion this would be an issue.
Setting is straightforward (with magnifier) but this on/off/auto on the display is so small and not the easiest when switching off before holiday etc.

You'll really need your glasses for this one. The display is TINY - and the text on it even smaller.
Really, there's no need to make it so ridiculously small.
Add to that the lack of backlight - how many people's airing cupboard has enough light to read faint text smaller than newsprint?
Another annoyance is the shared earth terminal. Getting two good thick earth wires into one terminal is silly - why not provide two?
Overall, it's good enough - in that it does the job - but it could do it so much better if it wasn't so small. OK - a plug-in unit can't be too big, but a wall-mounted unit needn't be this small.

This is a replacement and has lasted slightly longer than the one it replaced which only lasted a year. Fitted by professional plumber.
The on screen images are so small you need a magnifier to check what is selected. And with no back light a torch too!
Avoid like the plague - terrible design, usability and poor reliability product
