comment Correct cursor for “content cannot be interacted with”
Have you tested and found that users are trying to click on the image? Unless you find that they do, I would assume that they wouldn't attempt to click. If you test and do find that they do, then I would suggest using the "unavailable" cursor, which is a circle with a line through it. EDIT: Roger Attril's answer showcases the cursor I mention.

It may be your widget selection in this case. Consider using label widgets instead of things like text boxes, buttons, etc.? Users generally try to interact with text boxes and buttons but they can intuitively tell that a label is meant to display information, not be interacted with.

In that case, it might be worth it for you to give us some more information about your app so we can give a better response. I still think that even if you're graying out the whole window, it is a better visual cue than using the mouse cursor.

comment Why people tend to go traditional instead of using their cool reminder phone app?
Right! I have one too and use it when I'm around the house. But your stove is not very portable, so you can't rely on it anywhere else. Even if I'm in the next room and not in my kitchen I'll use my phone as a timer instead of my stove or microwave. No sense in bringing a little timer around with you when you go out; you've already got your phone!

comment Why people tend to go traditional instead of using their cool reminder phone app?
Yeah, I would agree with that. An SMS or a phone call is definitely more likely to get a response from me than a notification reminding me that I need to get my car serviced this week. One phone notification that always gets my attention is a timer expiry. Setting timers (ex: for laundry or cooking times) is one thing phones do very well that can't be duplicated using traditional means.
