I love to use my iPad in the kitchen. It has quickly replaced my cookbooks and has become my most used kitchen tool. I've discovered several ways to waterproof my iPad while in the kitchen but I still struggle with where to actually put it when I'm busy cooking or baking up a storm. I did a little research and found these four different ways to display your iPad while in the kitchen:
Personalized Wooden Stand
A simple wooden stand for your iPad that you can leave out on your counter top when it's not in use. These are nice to look at and can be personalized with your initials or a favorite quote. Very much like the cookbook stand my mom had on her counter when I was growing up, I like the mix of old and new: the wood holder with the latest technology.
Under Cabinet Mount
There are several versions of under cabinet mount iPad holders on the market. The most useful ones are versatile and can be attached to the cabinet, set on the counter top or hung on the wall. You can get one with an adjustable arm that lets you swivel the screen around to face you no matter what area of the kitchen you are working in. The benefit to a stand like this is that it keeps your iPad up off of the counter, protecting it from the kitchen "elements". When you are no longer using it you can fold it back up under the cabinet and out of sight.
Docking Station with Speakers
Sometimes the blissful quiet of water boiling or the mixer running is white-noise-music-to-my-ears, other times I like to listen to music or podcasts, or even catch up on my favorite shows while I'm cooking. My iPad is great, but it's speakers are a little lacking. A docking station with speakers is a great solution! You can find versatile docking stations that can be used on the counter top or with an under cabinet mount so you can set your iPad where it is most convenient for you.
No bells or whistles, just a simple, collapsible stand to hold your iPad upright on the counter. The most inexpensive option I've seen it is unobtrusive to your kitchen decor and folds flat so it can easily be stored in a cabinet or a drawer until you are ready to use it again.
