    If I had the power strip I could use my netbook in the kitchen to either look up recipes or I could Skype while cooking. I could Multi-task in the kitchen.

    I often have to monitor after hours e-mail and our office trouble ticket system from home. Our kitchen is central to our home, and having laptops and gadgets connected and charged there keeps me online. Of course, I’m not the only person in the household with gadgets.

    I could charge my laptop while checking on recipes and listen to music on my mp3 player.

    I would love to have this in my kitchen. I would use it to supply power to my laptop while I look up recipes as I cook. I wouldn’t have to run back and forth into the living room as I cook. The possibilites are endless.

    I use technology for researching recipes and ingredients and to listen to audio books while I’m busy there.

    I am a novice at cooking. However, I have a handsome boyfriend who loves to teach me all of the “how to’s” of becoming a chef. In the kitchen, we use technology to play our favorite songs while cooking together. Every once in a while, I even get him to dance!

    This would be a boon to me, I do not have enough outlets in my kitchen. I’d use it for my laptop and stream music and movies while I do kitchen duty, to make the time go by.

    I would love to listen to music and watch food videos in the kitchen. The Power Pod would make this possible because I don’t have enough outlets to do it now.

    Use by laptop to keep the kids entertained while cooking them meals. It also helps me research healthy fun meals for them too.

    What don’t I use technology for in the kitchen!! I use my tablet for grocery lists and to-do lists, i use tablet and laptop for viewing recipes, sometimes 2 or 3 at a time since I like to experiment, for listening to my music, for looking up how many degrees a certain meat or candy style needs to reach, how many days or weeks until a product is out of date, and I have a small television on my countertop so I can watch my shows and not miss anything good. This year I purchased a 16 GB flash drive cheap at a close out style store and now each time I use a recipe I am saving it to the flash drive under as many categories as I think I would go looking for, lots of files and sub files, it feels good knowing I won’t run out of memory and will eventually have everything in on place and can keep adding to it.

    This would be great to have! I love that it has USB ports as well. We would use this to plug in our phones and laptops – not only for looking up new recipes, but also to blast some Ella Fitzgeral while we mix and stir!

    I use technology – mainly my laptop – in the kitchen to: access my recipe files, find substitutions for ingredients that I am missing, plan recipes around ingredients and items I have on hand, scan store circulars, plan meals, and create grocery lists – listen to music while working in the kitchen, chat while tackling kitchen tasks, and more. Technology is such an integral part of my life, it’s hard to list all of the ways I use it in every room. A strip like this would allow me to do even more, like charge my phone while having one of those long conversations with my mom! What a useful, timesaving device!

    I used my computer recently to get a recipe for French Macaroons and watch several videos on how to make them. After reading several recipes and blogs, and watching numerous videos, I finally made them. They turned out great and they had “feet” just like they should. Technology is invaluable in the kitchen!

    I use technology in many ways in the kitchen.
    1) Looking up and using recipes. I get a farm box weekly and often have new ingredient to find fun recipes for.
    2) Keeping a digital list of items in the fridge (meats, veggies, etc) so I remember to use them before they go bad. If I don’t I often find some wilted mushy item left in the bottom of the veggie drawer.
    3) Tracking what I eat on a spreadsheet.

    If I won this I would add video my recipes and finished product to add to a blog.

    I use technology to look up recipes, listen to music, and video chat as I do my cooking. It helps me feel like it’s not a chore but to enjoy while I do them.

    I use my Ipad to look up recipes for cooking dinner. I also use my Ipad in the kitchen to catch up on emails while the food cooks.

    I use my iPad to watch cooking lessons in the kitchen. I’m always trying to learn new techniques.

    this is the GREATEST concept I have seen yet! This would come in handy in more ways then one. technology in the kitchen for many things including step by step instructions for recipes, keeping the kids busy and sharing via social networks and connecting with far away family.

    Ever since I gave my mom a smartphone connected to the home wifi network, she’s been using one of the apps to listen to radio stations across the country and around the world every single day while she is prepping and cooking food, cleaning the kitchen or the house, and while eating her meals. She’s connected to what’s going on in the world all inside her little kitchen. It was the best gift ever.

    I use my laptop for recipes — and occasionally for help with cooking terms or procedures!

    This would be fantastic as a household hub for when the kids are doing homework and need their devices charging… Keep my iPad ready for recipes, shopping lists and whatever else I may need! Cooking videos can play while I am cooking!

    I use technology in the kitchen to: locate recipes (especially low fat and low carb recipes), watch food preparation programs and videos, visit web sites mentioned on food programs or in magazines, view weekly specials in local stores, learn about new products and equipment available, enter sweepstakes, etc. We will start building a new house soon and the computer has been an invaluable source of information for determining what we will purchase to go into the new kitchen (and other areas), vendors that sell the products, and great sugestions on how to work with builders and architects. I, also, sometimes read a book on my Kindle while something is baking or I am stirring a roux.

    the only technology in my kitchen now is a clock radio/alarm that entertains me, however with this added tower of power I COULD display a massive recipe collection while skyping with family & friends to tempt them to visit me while we enjoy meals together, listening to our favorite tunes and reviewing all our favorite photos

    This would be great for my kitchen. With my daughter and two grandchildren now living with us, the kitchen bar is used by my granddaughter to do homework on my laptop. My daughter is going to school online, and she shares the kitchen bar with her daughter, doing homework on her laptop as well. The kitchen bar is also used to skype with my out-of-state daughter who has a toddler and a new baby. It’s the next best thing to being there in person…

    I could load any cookbook onto my Kindle and use the Kindle to look at the recipe while cooking and with the power pod I would never have to worry if it as charged fully. My daughter also uses her laptop at the counter to do her homework, so we coould be working in the same area together.

    Technology is a great thing. Though I do not have it – I think the most efficient gadget would be a undercounter mounted tablet to look up recipes and view videos of cooking demos and techniques. Currently, I use a laptop from the dining room table.

    With this power strip it would make it possible to charge my computer while I look up recipes, make grocery lists and email to myself, listen to music and catch up on email and other things while cooking.

    I look up recipes and substitutes. My laptop is in my kitchen along with my Iphone; the power strip would definitely be welcome!

    I definitely use technology in my kitchen for looking up recipes and ingredients. Sometimes I shuttle back and forth between two or three recipes to get the best fit for our ‘likes’ and what we have on hand. And sometimes, when things don’t work out, I use the technology to order pizza delivery onlline!

    Translating! After living in France I have accumulated recipes exceeding my French language skills. It is enough that I have fed my son sour cream instead of cottage cheese, in hopes of keeping the rest of my family from suffering I actively run translating applications on every unfamiliar word…
