Degree – the digital cooking timer application for multi-taskers.
Role: UX Designer
Young adults and college students that have recently moved out of their family homes find cooking to be a source of anxiety and are worried about undercooking meats or other foods that could make them sick. Because many of these adults didn’t learn how to cook from their parents, they resort to ordering out with their monthly budget for food. This is an issue as food delivery apps have made it even easier to order out while at the same time making it more expensive to do so.
Build a cooking timer app that allows users to:
- choose preset timers that allow for multiple levels of “doneness” where applicable.
- set multiple timers at a time.
- easily share a specific timer with their friends/family.

After initial interviews, the user audience was expanded to include professional chefs/cooks and at-home parents cooking for multiple children.
In several user testing sessions, a frequent ask was if there could be an easier way to search timers by category to see the breadth of timers available to try something new.
