This is a good idea, but I bet I can recreate something similar that costs less than $10. This is essentially a magnet.
I used to use my laptop in my kitchen, but it takes up too much valuable counter space so I often use my iPod Touch, but it can be annoying since the text is so small and using dirty fingers to scroll can muck up the screen.
Here’s one intriguing little thing I saw at the Housewares show last week: The Recipe Rock! It’s a kitchen accessory that understands that many of us cook from computer printouts instead of cookbooks. See it in action below.
Many of us now use recipes from the internet (maybe even from The Kitchn’s recipe archive?) and unless you have an iPad, computer, or mobile device in the kitchen with you, that means printouts. I often print out recipes I’m working on, especially when I want to make notes on them or adjust quantities. And unless you have one of these awesome rails on your backsplash, it can be hard to prop up a single sheet of paper.
