u-wave After-timer

How long has it been since the Beep?

Most microwave ovens have a feature that after the oven stops, a short "beep" will be sounded, ostensibly to alert the user that the food is still in the oven. It then beeps about once a minute, reminding one to remove the food. But there's no indication about how long the food has remained in the u-wave after the cooking stops.

This feature would display a count-up timer of minutes/seconds since the cooking concluded, for those foods that require a cool-down or refractory period. Canceled when food is removed.

       [+] as long as it has a setting to lengthen the beep periodicity too.

       YES!   

       I use my microwave timer for both making beer and laundry, and this is something I've always wished for.

       No Big Ben bonging, I'm shocked.
