I’ve been experimenting with Jamie Oliver’s Recipes app recently, and it occurred to me that an iPad stand would come in handy when I’m fondling his dumplings in the kitchen - they go very well with his beef and Guinness stew. So imagine how positively "pukka" I felt when Belkin’s Chef Stand and Stylus turned up in the post. …
Just how many..
.. IWhatever stands does someone need? Theres been 3 reviews in the last 6 accessories of the week!
Re: Just how many…
I've got 5 so far. One by my bed, one by my hifi, one by my computer, one in the hallway and one that I keep for travelling.
Could use one for the kitchen, but I think I'd prefer some sort of wall mount.
A stylus is all well and good but I didn't see a scraper included to scrape the inch-thick layer of grease that will cover the screen within a couple of fry-ups.
If you need a recipe for a fry up, you're doing it wrong...
... I can completely relate to everything in this article, this is definately going on my xmas list for the missus to buy me.
Got to be the first accessory that I have actually wanted.
Thats an expensive recipe book!
I'm impressed by the floating stylus..
I just put the iPad inside a gallon-sized ziplock bag (get them from Costco or eBay in the Uk). Cheap, strong, recyclable when dirty and touchscreen still works perfectly through the plastic.
As I was reading this I was thinking how handy it would have been last week when I made a lemon meringue pie - as my phone kept getting smeared with "stuff" as I was flicking through the recipe.
Then I remembered the 20 minutes I had to spend cleaning whisked egg white from every exposed surface in the kitchen. That's fine with my £99 SanFran or £70 no-name tablet. But I don't think I would want to expose an iPad to that kind of treatment.
And precisely how
did you manage to get whisked egg white over every exposed surface in your kitchen? Getting some in your pie would have been a good idea. Were you whisking it with a Dremel or something?
In need something like that but ....
I was thinking about a plate stand
I get the point it's a great idea and was something I needed.
I bought a cheapo pound land stand and a stylus off ebay.
Does much the same as this thing does but for the sum of £4.50... Sure I don't have a magnet in the stylus but then I don't have an iPad 2 either....
Still I like the innovation :)
