French digital company, UNOWHY recently launched “LA TABLETTE QOOQ” in the United States, the first interactive touch-screen tablet made especially for the kitchen and not a moment too soon. Already a sensation in France, the QOOQ CULINARY TABLET transforms the process of at-home cooking through highly interactive content from leading European chefs, helping to simplify meal preparation for culinary experts and novices alike. With a catalog of over 4,000 exclusive recipes from more than 100 of Europe’s most acclaimed chefs, QOOQ provides a step-by-step interactive guide to create delicious appetizers, meals and desserts through real-time HD video, photos and text as tools to guide users.
Unlike other tablet computers, QOOQ is designed to be spill-proof, non-slip, and survive the wear and tear of the kitchen and a touchscreen that is specifically designed to be used in the kitchen, where it resists humidity and heat and can be used risk free with hands covered in flour or fat. (It can easily be cleaned with a damp cloth.) The device offers access to hundreds of ingredient fact sheets and videos demonstrating culinary techniques and its personalized features allow users to input their own favorite recipes and share with friends, create weekly menus and shopping lists, and automatically adjust ingredient quantities. QOOQ is available for purchase in the U.S. for $399 and comes pre-loaded with 1,000 recipes and videos. Users will also be able to purchase additional recipes, individually or in themed recipe packs, or subscriptions for monthly ($9.90/mo.) or yearly ($99.00/mo.) premium access.
