While the print cookbook has been the staple of the modern kitchen for decades, new technologies can streamline and enhance our culinary experience in rewarding ways. The new QOOQ Culinary Tablet hopes to organize and enrich your time in the kitchen by presenting thousands of recipes, videos and more in a dedicated, French-made tablet. While the sheer utility of the print cookbook may never be replaced, this system presents a significant upgrade for the tech-minded foodie.
The QOOQ Culinary Tablet (pronounced “cook”) features a 10.1-inch touchscreen display, a 1GHz A9 dual-core processor, 8GB of internal memory and a custom Linux-based UI. Out-of-the-box, QOOQ features thousands of recipes and videos, with up to 3,600 recipes and 1,200 videos available with all premium content options. Users can also upload their own family recipes to share with others or for easy access. Instead of flipping through countless 3×5 recipe cards, these family heirlooms can be stored directly within QOOQ’s system.
The QOOQ Tablet is available now for $399 and full access passes start at a subscription rate of $9.99/month. Foodies that spend a lot of time in the kitchen should find this justifiable, as the subscription content on this device will likely beat anything you can find in the Apple or Android app stores. Just don’t keep it too close to your burners, foodie friends! [via coolhunting]
