So you don’t print those recipes, preferring, instead, to read them online. That generous dollop of gizmo-lust in you means you use a smart iPad and not a desktop or laptop.
But no matter how techno-savvy you are, you can’t always avoid the collateral damage of cooking. Imagine some of your sauce splashing on your iPad screen or you inadvertently touching your hibernating iPad with a greasy finger to poke it back to life.
But fear not, as help is at hand in the form of Belkin’s Chef Stand iPad dock. With this handy device, you can safely keep your iPad on the kitchen counter. It has an anti-slip base and is hand-washable.
It comes with a stylus that allows you to navigate your iPad easily, so you can scroll up and down your recipe, or even look for alternative recipes, without worrying about dirtying your iPad.
The thoughtful designers at Belkin even offer specially-designed mounts to hold your iPad safely on your refrigerator door or a cabinet. But these are extras, and are not part of the Chef Stand iPad dock, which is priced at US$39.99 (£25)
Once you get yourself the Belkin Chef Stand iPad dock, you can use your iPad to capture images of you cooking and post them onto your favourite social media channels. Isn’t it time you let your friends know that you can cook?
