Okay, so it’s not secret that you can use your iPad or iPhone, or whatever breed of tablet you have in your position, to look up any recipe you can dream of.  Heck there are even websites that tell you what to make based on what’s squirreled away in your fridge.  But if you’re still with the old school, or perhaps like to print out the step-by-step instructions on how to make a pot roast, then you’ll want the Recipe Rock from Crate and Barrel.

This handy little kitchen tool keeps your recipes pulled from magazines, or printed on paper, in an upright and easy to read position thanks to a rare earth magnet.  When you’re ready to switch pages, you simply just yank on the steel ball, swap out the page, and presto you can continue you on with cooking without having to worry about wind gusts blowing your recipe clear across the room.  And because the Recipe Rock is made of a resign and metal, you can just wash it off using soap and water.

Crate and Barrel sells the Recipe Rock for about $9.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
