Timer/stopwatch like apps can be found in variations. But none of them could serve my wish of having multiple timers and proper portrait mode support. So I wrote my own timer app a while ago. Recently I added some configuration options so it could perhaps be usefull for others.
AFAIK, KitchenAlert (available from repos) was serving the same purposes, with all options You pointed as required.

Still, thanks a lot for this one - diversity is never bad thing could You please add support for setting seconds too? Or Did I miss something?

I am aware of kitchenAlert and used it for a short while. I tried it in forced portrait mode, but the layout was hardcoded and therefore screwed up in portrait mode.

I left out seconds because I am not interested in seconds then cooking

can you add a widget to it with 5 10 15 & 20 min predefined timer..
You could create an item called "20 minutes" and set the time to 20 minutes for that item. That way you would have your predefined timer?

I see. Well, when cooking some things (mainly, many types of less-popular eggs), seconds are quite important, and it would definitely make this program more usable.

although, of course, I'm not pushing anything on You. I just thing that having seconds doesn't hurt (i.e. no one forced to use them) nor require big amount of work to implement, yet, it makes timer much more flexible.

Just a thing for consideration.

I also use a timer with seconds for eggs
5:40min for EU L class chicken eggs.

Didn't know so many people around here are egg cooking professionals

I did, and did not implement seconds in the latest version:
  • the QMaemo5timepickselector I use for custom time settings, does not support seconds turns out. I do not want to abandon this selector, so ad-hoc settings will not support seconds
  • For the predefinable items, seconds are introduced

So if you want to have your eggs exactly boiled for 4 minutes and 50 seconds, make that a predefinable item.

P.s. existing predefined dishes should be converted to the new timestamp with seconds during installation automatically.

Killed me with that two lines - took out of context, it sounds almost philosophical For a second, I though about using it as my signature, but it's occupied already

Anyway, thanks a lot for adding this feature, pre-defined items are good enough.
