Amazon Echo Named Timers

We use the Echo to set timers a lot and often have more than one set at a time, which can be confusing to know which is which. That's a fading memory now that Amazon has introduced Named Timers, so now we can say "set a burger timer for two minutes" and "set a steamer timer for three minutes" and Alexa will tell us which has just expired (from her new home in the jungle we call the dining room).
