Yes, I have a few. I set them to ring at the next time I need to do something, but also try to either start a count-up timer or just remember the time when the boil actually started. That way if I screw up setting the timer or take longer than expected at one of the steps, I have some idea how long it's been other than just by adding together the times I set the count-down timer for.
