The holidays are here and we can all use an extra hand in the kitchen. It will be years before we can all have a robot that is programmed to do all of our cooking and cleaning, until then we can use small kitchen gadgets that can help us speed up the process.
This holiday season we thought it would be fun to feature five gadgets that could help you in the kitchen:
Logitech Keys-To-Go Keyboard
Many may think that the Logitech Keys-to-Go keyboard’s use is only for those on the go, which is why it was designed. But you can also use this ultra portable keyboard in the kitchen. Its use: keeping your ipad or smart tablet from getting dirty. That’s right, if you get the keyboard dirty, you can just wipe it clean. This way you don’t damage your tablet or have to keep wiping it down as you scroll up and down. It even comes with a stand so you can setup your tablet as you read your favorite recipe. Available on Amazon, $69
WeMo® Insight Switch by Belkin
We’ve all been there, running around all day to prepare for our holiday festivities that sometimes we forget to turn things off in the kitchen. The WeMo Insight Switch by Belkin can help not only in the kitchen but overall around the house. Maybe you want to get coffee started before your guests arrive, well with the WeMo you can turn your coffeemaker directly from your mobile app. Perhaps you want to start music while your guests are in the living room, but you’re in the kitchen…yup, WeMo can help with that.
