How many times have you tried to prepare a recipe you’d called up on your tablet screen from a digital cookbook or cooking site online, and constantly had to tilt the screen up toward you with hands covered in grease, guts or oven mitts? As helpful as technology can be with domestic matters like meal preparation, sometimes the devil’s in the details, and in this case, the details are the accessories. Take the bamboo tablet stand, for example: aesthetically pleasing, environmentally conscious and designed with convenience in mind, it tilts your tablet at the perfect angle for you to glance over at your recipe from across the kitchen to make sure you’re getting a measurement right or adding an ingredient at the proper time. Easily washable with soap and water and preservable for the long-term with mineral oil, this 1.5-lb helper stands tall enough to support a standard tablet and is adjustable to four different levels. It even includes a small notch just wide enough for a power port connection so your iPad, Kindle or other device doesn’t have to lose power while you’re employing it as your sous chef. Usable, obviously, for any number of things from reading in bed to watching a movie at your desk while writing notes or eating lunch, this facile, clever tool makes life easy in all sorts of situations. Now, if that isn’t something to stand for, we don’t know what is.
