Key Ingredient Recipe Reader - Review

Disclosure: I received this product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
I am having so much fun with my new toy, um tool, for my kitchen! It's called the Key Ingredient Recipe Reader and basically it's an electronic interactive tablet cookbook. It is so easy to use that even your great-great-grandma would be completely enamored with it.
It is kitchen-safe with its sealed glass touch-screen. The Recipe Reader is completely mess-proof and can be easily wiped off with a damp cloth. Not only can I load all my own recipes on it, I have access to the entire online recipe database via my wifi connection.
The base of it is angled so I can leave it right on my counter-top to have easy access to the recipe I'm making for that meal. The easy tabs at the top navigate through the recipe, while the buttons at the bottom of the Recipe Reader offer me even more options.
There are full color photos, ingredient lists, and step by step instructions for the recipes. It would be the perfect gift for moms, dads, grandparents, college students, newly married couples and anyone else who loves to cook. If they don't love to cook, maybe this will motivate them to cook more!
Navigating around on the Recipe Reader takes just minutes to learn and there's a handy user guide included. It comes with an electrical connection, turns on with one click, then searches for wifi connections and allows you to log in. The touch screen is very responsive without being overly sensitive.
The Recipe Reader is equipped with three kitchen timers that can run simultaneously and a planner feature that allows quick access to selected recipes to make planning meals a breeze! A substitution tool is available in case my pantry is missing an ingredient and there's also a conversion calculator.
Key Ingredient (www.keyingredient.com) hosts the web's largest shareable collection of over 1.5 million user-generated recipes. I can log onto my laptop or the Recipe Reader to access my free account. I have had such a great time playing with it and have already made three of the recipes I found on it. I love mine and totally recommend it!
Visit www.keyingredient.com to check out the Recipe Reader, sign up for an account, and follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest too.

  1. This looks like it would be so handy to use! I really like that it has three timers. I often have to use a timer on my phone and the one on the microwave at the same time. This would be so much handier! I'd love to have one of these!

  2. I really like that this is dedicated to recipes. I could store it in a drawer when not in use.

  4. My goodness, how cool is this!? I love playing with these kinds of things, and I've been told that I'm not the greatest cook, so I guess I could use all the kitchen help I can get!

  5. Mess proof-sounds good to me-love finding new recipes....thanks for telling us about this!

    ReplyDelete
  6. This would be so convenient. I like to try recipes I find online all the time. I either end up running back and forth to read the stuff of my PC screen or have to scribble it down on a sheet of scrap paper.

  7. I love to cook with my grandkids and this would be wonderful for us to use. Being able to see the picture of what we were making and then have them help to read the instructions would not only be good for their reading skills, but also for our bonding time. I love this. :D

  8. I love that this has sealed glass so when I accidentally spill things I don't have to worry about it breaking!

  9. This is a wonderful idea, I am always messing up my recipes when I get them all dirty and or loose them and can't find them when I want it. To have them all in one place is a great ides, plus being able to go on line to fine a recipe is great too

    ReplyDelete
  10. this is so AWESOME! I want it. I have a ton of cookbooks but it seems they are "messy" after years of use, so this would be great AND I would end up with a whole shelf back once my cookbooks get packed away (or given away)

    ReplyDelete
  11. This is something I really need in the kitchen!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love this! I find I keep making the same recipes...too lazy to pull out the cookbooks. I love the three timer feature too!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Now this sounds like a very handy tool to have in my kitchen, and I like that it is slanted for easy reading and you don't have to find something to prop it up to red while you are working with it. I love trying new recipes.. and this would be fun..

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow, this sounds really neat. I'm not very good at cooking and don't know too many recipes so this would really come in handy.
    Thanks for letting us know about this neat tool. =)

  30. I love to cook, but since I got involved in dog rescue - and especially since I started my own rescue last year - I often don't know until last minute what I am going to make for dinner. This sounds like it would make my life at dinner time much easier

    ReplyDelete
  31. This device looks amazing! I love that it can be cleaned easily with a damp cloth and has wifi connection. This would be so helpful with our busy day to day family life.

    ReplyDelete
  32. This is really neat! I love that it's mess proof! many a cookbook I've had has all sorts of stains in it lol I would love to try this out :)

  33. What will they think of next? I don't even have an e-reader yet or an IPad or a smart phone--My Mom would probably love this-no more hunting for recipes.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love this idea. We're always trying to come up with ideas for dinner and this would really help us. Great idea.

    ReplyDelete
  35. This is an awesome product! I would say a good 80-90% of my new recipes come from internet searches, to have this in the kitchen with a reserve of that many recipes makes it a product I want to have.

  62. This is such a space saver. You can load your recipes or use theirs online. Easy to clean and it's just cool too.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I hate trying to use my laptop or nook to look up recipes, since I'm always afraid they'll get dirty, or they go to sleep on me. The fact that this is mess proof, is great. Combine that with all the other features (I especially love the three timers and the substitution tool)

  64. i love that it can be wiped off easily. i love to cook but you should see my cookbook. its a mess and i have to put my laptop on the washer so i dont spill nothing on it when i get a recipe online. i have to keep going back and forth to follow the recipe and to keep the laptop mess free. wonderful product!

    ReplyDelete
  65. i am not very technical oriented, but this looks simple enough to learn. I love having pictures with my recipes and this does!

    ReplyDelete
  71. What a great idea! I have heard of people putting their iPad into a zip-loc bag and using it in the kitchen as a recipe-reader, but with a mess-proof, wipeable sealed glass display, this problem is solved. I also love the idea of being able to import recipes from Key Ingredient, and the three timers is just brilliant!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I had no idea something like this existed. This is fabulous! I love that it has 3 timers that can run at the same time. Oh my goodness, this is going on my Christmas list!
