Even the snootiest of cooks has a cookbook or two that he swears and lives by. For the tech-crazed modern home cook, that craze often translates into the love of a fav food blog. Accessing these blogs and web-based food services, however, usually ends up in a mess or a disaster with spills and stains ruining a tablet or a laptop placed on the kitchen counter during a cooking spree. This is where a specialty products like the QOOQ tablet makes the perfect sense.
Developed by a French company, the tablet doesn’t look or function any different than an average tablet though it does come with a set of pretty kitchen spill-and-stain proof features which makes a great addition to the accident prone chef’s kitchen. UNOWHY, the company behind the QOOQ have bestowed the tablet with a wire kickstand, slip-proof nubs, and a stain-proof 10.1-inch touchscreen which makes accessing the devices 4,000-strong recipe database easier.
The tablet runs on a 1GHz dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor and a Linux operating system. It also comes with a memory card reader and 8 gigabytes of internal memory. The QOOQ offers 2.5 hours of steady video playback time with other uses allowing it to last 4-5 hours on a full charge. The tablet connects to the internet using an Ethernet port and Wi-Fi. However, what makes the tablet really special for cooks is the fact that it comes with apps like a food and recipe database, an intuitive shopping-list creator and a calendar to plan meals.
Users can adjust recipes according to servings which will automatically adjust measurements of ingredients. It also allows users to access nutrition data about a food, which varieties of ingredients work best with a dish, how to check foods for ripeness and in case you find yourself in a bind about a cooking step, you can also learn them through how-to videos.
