Turning off electric hot water heater when not home?

I have heard of people putting a timer on their electric hot water heater so that it shuts off when not in use. I'm not sure how I would go about hooking up a timer to mine, but I could simply flip the breaker when I leave in the mornings. Currently I take 1 shower per day and it's in the mornings. Other than that I almost have no need for hot water.

Has anyone tried this? How long does it take the heater to get back to proper operating temperatures?
