ChefPad-Icon

I like to cook, and sometimes I bring my tablet into the kitchen with me to look up a recipe. For some of you, this might not be dedicated enough. You demand a dedicated kitchen tablet, and Archos is ready to deliver. Their new ChefPad is "a tablet for the cooking enthusiast." It comes with a selection of cooking oriented apps and a silicone case that makes it a dream come true for the four of you who could not settle for anything less.

The Archos ChefPad comes with Chef Apps Zone, which filters through the Play Store to present a curated selection of cooking apps. It ships with Android 4.1, and as far as software's concerned, that's about it. In addition to its waterproof case, the tablet comes with an adjustable stand that gives you a good view of its unspectacular 9.7 inch 1024 by 768 screen. It also touts a dual-core 1.6 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM under the hood, which should be adequate for running all of those cooking apps you'll be supposedly filling it up with.

In case someone wants to get their hands on the ChefPad, it launches next month for $209.99/£149.99/€169.99.

    To be fair it's alright for the price but they shot themselves in the foot targeting people who cook they should have just called it something universal and then sold the concept with marketing

      actually, what they need to do is go all in and make all kinds of kitschy cookbook-holder-style docks for it, undercabinet holders, waterproof cases, bluetooth spatulas, and market it alongside all of those wifi fridges/ovens/toasters

        Now *that's* a kitchen tablet concept I can get behind. I probably still wouldn't buy it, but I'd be curious to see where they go with it.

    This is a great idea, but I'm not paying $200 for it. I'll just wait for the system dump and install their apks lol

    So what are some good cooking apps? I have to admit, using it in the kitchen was one of the main selling points I made for getting a tablet in the first place, but barely use it.
