iPad Mini Rack for Mincing Meatloaf and More

The Original iPad Mini Rack

 

ipad mini rack

How often do you use your iPad in the kitchen to look up recipes? When things get a little messy, you’ll need a way to protect that iPad. This iPad mini rack snaps easily into place to keep your iPad clean and the electronics inside safe from accidental liquid spills. This is just one of many examples of the ways that you can use new technologies in the kitchen to make your life easier while you’re following that easy meatloaf recipe you found online.

Why should you use this rack? The truth is, sales of cookbooks are stalling because it’s just so easy to look up recipes online. Google something that you’re just in the mood for and you’ll probably find a couple of dozen good recipes just in the first few results. You could even download a cookbook as an ebook if you still like the tradition of using one or you found one by your favorite celebrity chef. However, there are certain hazards when you have electronics like an iPad in the kitchen and that can make it difficult to actually follow the recipe.

What this rack actually does is hold your iPad off the kitchen counter at an angle that is easy to read while both your hands are occupied. It can hold the device in Portrait or Landscape mode and can be installed in three minutes using the screws or with some handy Velcro if you prefer not to use the screws. There is a larger “big brother” for the mini rack if you have a regular sized iPad.

Of course, you probably already have a favorite meatloaf recipe and might not be looking up recipes every time you use the rack. When you’re not following easy meatloaf recipes on the iPad, you can follow the action that includes all those brilliant plays when you’re stuck in the kitchen during the big game. That means no more trying to go see what just happened when everybody’s excited and a team just pulled off a brilliant play.

Most importantly, it keeps your iPad clean and out of the way even when your counter is basically a mess or filling up with dirty dishes because you’re busy pulling together the ingredients for that dinner party or making appetizers for the big game. It’s not flimsy or cheap the way that some products meant to protect your iPad can be.

If you’re shopping for a product like this, you’re probably part of the generation that is getting more and more used to doing research online, including looking up recipes. So go ahead and use that website where you can enter some ingredients you have on hand and it’ll suggest some recipes if you want to. That beats having to hunt through a shelf full of cookbooks just to find a recipe that mostly works except you’re missing one ingredient. The Original iPad Mini Rack will hold your iPad out of harms way while you’re working on that easy meatloaf recipe.
