Tips On Using The Ipad In The Kitchen As A Cooking Companion
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

The iPad is a wonderful companion in the kitchen. Not only can you use it as an entertainment device to listen to music or watch a movie while cooking, you can also use the iPad as a cookbook. There are an infinite number of recipes at your fingertips via the Safari browser or one of many available apps.

One of the most popular recipe apps for the iPad is In the Kitchen: Food Network Recipes, Chefs, Cooking Tools, and Shopping Lists. This provides thousands of recipes from the top chefs on the Food Network. I recently tried one of their red beans and rice recipes and it was fantastic. You can create grocery lists from inside the app based on recipes you would like to prepare, which is a great time saver. Currently this app is $1.99.

Another popular option is My Recipe Book - Your recipes, finally organized, highly rated with 4.5 stars on 662 reviews for $2.99. This app is for those who have a lot of personal recipes tucked away in a kitchen drawer. You can enter and organize these recipes into this app, share them with friends, and mark the ones you like the most as favorites. My Recipe Book also allows you to create grocery lists based on recipes and import recipes from the web.

There are many more, including some free ones like Whole Foods Market Recipes. Take a look, try a few out, and decide which is best for you.

Before you bring your iPad into the kitchen as a cooking companion, you need to protect the device from spills, food particles, and greasy fingers by using a waterproof iPad case. These clear sleeves allow you to see your screen clearly, interact with it as normal using the touch screen, all while providing protection and keeping it clean.

Chef Sleeve is a waterproof iPad case designed specifically with kitchen use in mind. The Chef Sleeve is a clear, disposable sleeve that closes using an adhesive strip. You can buy them in packs of 25 for $19.99 or 50 for $34.99. The sleeves are FDA approved, so you don't have to worry about exposing your food to unwanted plastic chemicals. The packaging doubles as a stand for your iPad. One downside is that the sleeve is not truly a waterproof iPad case since the end with the seal on it may leak if submerged in water. But, unless you drop it into a sink full of water, the Chef Sleeve is fine for kitchen use.

Those who want a reusable solution with more water protection should look at the DryCASE Tablet Water-Proof Case. This waterproof iPad case uses vacuum-seal technology and is waterproof up to 100 ft. This case can be found for approximately $45.

Lastly, some people go the cheap route and just put their iPad in a freezer bag. Be careful doing this. Not all of freezer bags are of the same quality and can end up leaking. I have seen at least one person fry a smart phone by putting it in a freezer bag that was not waterproof.

The iPad may very well replace your cookbooks one day. And with a proper waterproof iPad cases you can keep your device both clean and safe.
