When I am not on the computer I am normally cooking or baking since it is my favorite thing to do. I love to try out new recipes, but my issue lately is that I am either lugging my 18 inch laptop into the kitchen or my phone so I can try follow the steps for the recipe and simply it becomes a pain. So I had been thinking of getting a tablet just to use in the kitchen but nothing had been what I wanted till Key Ingredient Recipe Reader emailed me. I checked out out and right away I knew this is what I had been looking for. So I said yes to doing a review of the product and as soon as they told me it has shipped I signed up for Key Ingredient and even got the app for my phone. So before the reader even got to my house I had over 40 new recipes added and I was excited. After charging the Recipe Reader I simple turned on and logged into my account and with the wifi built in it synced my accounts together so I had all my recipes on my Recipe Reader. I loved the key ingredient website because it has tons of recipes to pick from and I could make cookbook folders for each section I liked, example crockpot, chicken, breakfast and more. Each folder you make will list the recipes in alphabetic order so you can easily find if you know the name of the recipe you are looking for. If you are planning a holiday meal this year and you find recipes you only want for the meal you can dd them to your planner, so you can easily find them when it time to cook for that meal. The Key Ingredient has 3 timers so you can be cooking and baking many meals at once and keep up with each one. The back has a stand so that is up some so it is easier to view, you can use laying flat or standing up it will rotate for you.
A few other great things you will love about the Key Ingredient is that it comes with a conversion calculator and a ingredient substitute which honestly makes life so much easier. Since I hate when I don’t have something then I have to turn on my computer and then find what I can use but then I get distracted from my computer. Also this would be a great gift for an older person who is not tech savvy since it is simple to use. You can also have the font sized changed so you can see without straining. Oh and don’t worry if you spill something on it all you have to do is wipe off it is sealed glass.
So my personal thoughts-
I am in love, I would buy this for anyone who loves to cook. It makes my life simple and easy. I don’t have to drag my laptop, cookbook or more into my small kitchen. I just use the Key Ingredient website or app on my phone once a week find some recipes I like and add them to my planner so I write out my meal plan for the week they are right in front of me. I love that I can use either standing up or laying down and be able to view it without any problem. So now I know what I am getting some family members for Christmas now that I tried this out. If you want to buy a Key Ingredient Recipe Reader they are $149 with free shipping.
