The Time machine was introduced in the 0.125 update. It costs 123,456,789 cookies, and is the most expensive of all the items, at their base levels. It produces 123,456 cookies per 5 seconds.

Adding 24,691.2 CpS (cookies per second), it is approximately 18.5203 times quicker than the Portal. It also causes some grandmas to wear a pink jumpsuit with a visor, a hoverboard, and a green rolling pin, leading to the assumption that these grandmas came from the future.

  • You need at least 15 Time Machines to purchase the "Grandmas' Grandmas" upgrade.
  • A time machine is a fictional machine used in numerous works of Science Fiction; the revamped in-field icon loosely resembles the clockpunk designs used in films based on the novel The Time Machine.
  • Until v2, when the prices and yields were readjusted to account for the new buildings, all of the base costs and yields associated with the Time Machine were made up of sequential numbers, counting forwards from 1 to 9, backwards from 9 to 1 or even from 9 down to 4 then up to 9 again.
  • The "Flux Capacitor" upgrade, as well as its flavor text ("Bake to the future"), are references to the 80's classic film "Back to the Future."
  • The "Quantum Conundrum" upgrade and its flavor text are a reference to the 2012 video game of the same name.
  • The flavor text on the "Time Paradox Resolver" upgrade ("No more fooling around with your own grandmother") may be a reference to the show Futurama episode 51 ("Roswell that Ends Well") or to the famous grandfather paradox.
