The French company known as UNOWHY has announced the official US launch of the first culinary tablet made specifically for the kitchen. The tablet is called the La tablette QOOQ or simply the QOOQ. I suspect the name the tablet is pronounced "cook."
The tablet is designed to allow people who enjoy cooking at home to access highly interactive content from leading chefs. The goal is to help simplify meal preparation for culinary experts and novices alike. The tablet has a catalog of over 4000 exclusive recipes from more than 100 of Europe's most acclaimed chefs. The tablet content provides a step-by-step interactive guide to creating delicious meals, desserts, and appetizers using real-time HD video, photos, and text.
The tablet is also designed to be able to resist spills and has a non-slip surface to provide better grip when working with damp hands. The recipes offered on the tablet are sorted by cuisine type, difficulty level, prep time, and ingredients. Content available on the tablet also offers hundreds of ingredient fact sheets and videos that demonstrate various coloring techniques.
The tablet also has features that allow users to put their own recipes and share those recipes with friends. Other features include the ability to create weekly menus, shopping lists, and automatically adjust ingredient quantities. The tablet also supports access to the Internet allowing users to access e-mail, social networks, video, online radio, and more. The tablet is available in the US for $399 and additional recipes can be purchased individually or in themed recipe packs. Recipe subscriptions can also be purchased monthly at $9.90 or $99 for a year.
