FAQ - Pomodoro Timers

What is the Pomodoro Technique?

The Pomodoro Technique is a time management tactic where people focus for 25-minute intervals before taking a five-minute break. It was invented by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. In fact, the technique is named after the Italian word for "tomato", since Cirillo used a tomato-shaped kitchen timer for his countdowns!

Is the Pomodoro Technique effective for work and study?

Yes. The Pomodoro Technique helps break up long hours of focus into shorter and more manageable sessions. Like all productivity techniques, it's only as effective as you allow it to be, but it's a great way to get the ball rolling while allowing yourself regular breaks.

How long should a Pomodoro session be?

A typical Pomodoro session should consist of 25-minute intervals of work and a 5-minute break. Keep in mind that this is the “recommended” duration and you may tweak this time period within reason. We've added a longer 15-minute break above for those times when 5 minutes just isn't enough.
