The big problem when preparing the Christmas mega-feast is synchronising the timings for all the different dishes. My oven just has a single timer on it, so KitchenPad’s ability to create multiple timers is just what I need. The app has two main screens: the first provides a neat graphical display of the burners on your stove, …
My wife (and I) will love this at Christmas dinner time. Very useful app :)

You Brits and your strange dishes
Pud: A human male's penis
Funny, in the UK 'Yorkshire Puds' is slang for your balls.
Plus urbandictionary is hardly canonical.
If worst comes to the worst
You could always use the iPad as a chopping board.
Nice to see you upholding the proud British stereotype and boiling your 'veggies' into submission. 7:15 for 'veggies' and 9:46 for 'carrots and sprouts'? Well, at least they'll be nice and chewable, I guess...

The turkey will be ready in 4hrs 57mins but the veggies in 7mins? As 'a well wisher' correctly stated, they missed the chance of making a bang-on app here. Hold my calls and sack my cook......
This looks like a solution to a problem that nobody realised they had*
but the entire review was worth it for the Clarkson/Yorkshire Pudding Alert. Lovely work.
