Kindle of the Kitchen? The Demy

demy_01I admit it– I have a recipe problem.  There are rows and rows of cookbooks lining my bookshelves, binders filled with recipe print outs, and piles of Gourmet and Martha Stewart back issues splattered with ingredients from the meals I have concocted.  The Demy purports to change the lives of the unorganized like myself.  Demy is a digital recipe organizer, holding up to 2500 recipes, which syncs via USB to the user’s own recipe database on  The 7″ display  features a color touch screen with graphic interface and is splash resistant, for when one is whisking a little too enthusiastically.  In addition to recipe storage, Demy also acts as a kitchen timer, conversion tool, and maintains an ingredient substitution database–all in a package the size of a 5×7 index card.  The Demy is available for the extremely pricey $299.95 through the manufacturer or Amazon.

    I’d consider buying one if it has text-to-speech.

    This is pretty sweet. I’ve got food all over my phone after checking recipes on the net whilst I’ve been cooking, it’ll be nice to have something that’s made to get messy …

    For that price you could buy something off the shelf like a nokia n810 and pay someone to design an app that would do all kinds of fun things like query your recipies for ingredients you have on hand.
