In foodservice equipment, a knob may be as simple as a push button or "palm button". A control knob is a rotary control used to provide input to a device when grasped by an operator and turned, so that the degree of rotation corresponds to the desired input . Such knobs are one of the most common components in restaurant equipment control systems and are used to modulate a wide variety of settings such as temperature, viscosity, speed and more.
A timer is a specialized type of clock used for measuring specific time intervals. Timers can be categorized into two main types. A timer which counts upwards from zero for measuring elapsed time is often called a stopwatch, while a device which counts down from a specified time interval is more usually called a timer. It is a control device that outputs a signal at a preset time after an input signal is received and then triggers another device or action.
