My years of looking for the perfect Pomodoro timer are over. The individual timers are great, but, best of all, you can create a "set" of related timers and save it (it has extension .timerset; it's actually a text document) . This makes it perfect for the Pomodoro technique, which requires three different timers (25 minutes, short break, long break). You can customize each one (ticking, alarm sound). If you get information for a saved timerset (cmd-i), change the app that opens it to "Timer" and you will be open the set by double-clicking. Although Timer hasn't been updated for some time, it is stable and has never crashed in OS X 10.8.5. If it hadn't been free, I probably would have never tried it. Thanks Sonoroa Graphics!

Elegantly simple to use. Very efficient interface. For the timer, just move the cursor over the number fields and type the numbers you want, then hit start. No submenus, no slot machine spinning wheels necessary. When running, it is unobtrusive and doesn't take up much screen space. It does just what I need. have been using sonora timer since around 2008 and never had problems. I just love it.
