There’s no denying it – we live in a modern age where our mobile phones dictate a big part of our lives, and many of us probably even use our phones in the kitchen too. Many home cooks rely on their phones for tools like kitchen counters and recipe management, utilizing apps to become maestros in the kitchen.
Nowadays, however, you can use your phone for more than just apps. Gaming Realms, the company behind Iceland Bingo, said that in 2012, there were 1 billion smartphone users. This number has grown to 1.75 billion by this year, and as mobile experienced exponential growth, so too has technology relying on them been developed. If you have a friend who relies on their mobile while working in the kitchen, you may want to consider getting them one of the following for Christmas:
1. The Prep Pad
One of the most important things to consider when cooking is the nutritional value of the food you’re preparing, but let’s face it: it’s not always easy to keep track of what’s going into your food. Luckily, the Prep Pad can help you out with that, keeping track of the things you put on top of it, as well as creating a summary of its nutritional content.
2. GE Brillion
If you’ve ever baked, then you know how it feels to just want to get started with baking but have to wait around for your oven to heat up to the right temperature. The GE Brillion app takes care of this for you, integrating with some wall ovens so you can control them remotely, turning them on and preheating them even while you’re on your way home.
If your friends use their iPads to track recipes and ingredients in the kitchen, they’ll love the LaunchPort, an accessory that allows you to mount your iPad to any wall with magnets. The device also supports inductive charging, so you don’t even have to worry about tripping on cables when your iPad is hung up.
