Over the past few weeks, the folks at Sungale gave me the amazing opportunity to review the state-of-the-art networked kitchen appliance known as NetChef. I’ve had my eye on NetChef for quite some time so you can probably guess that I was quite excited about this opportunity!
There are so many different types of recipes available ranging from the meal like breakfast or lunch, to a cuisine such as seafood, or even the ingredient like chicken, beef, or pasta. With so many options, you can find something new to make every day if you wish. For those of you who have personal home made recipes on your home computers, Netchef is the perfect solution for bringing those recipes into the kitchen through either a JPEG file or TXT file formats. Netchef is also a great way for beginners wanting to learn how to cook through several pre-loaded cooking video tutorials, and with access to YouTube and the internet, more videos can be watched. There’s really no need to take up space on your bookshelf for cookbooks anymore, or print up recipes from your computer, the Netchef is all you need and brings it all to your kitchen counter.
Well, truth be told, NetChef delivers on its promises, it’s everything I’ve imagined and more. NetChef puts the Internet at your fingertips while you’re in the kitchen with fabulous recipes available, video chat capability and the speakers in the unit are stunning, absolutely stunning.
Basically, NetChef is a eight inch Android tablet encased inside a sturdy and well designed case. However, the tablet is built in and it’s not removable. It’s so simple to use and setup! Just plug it in, connect to wifi and you’re good to go. It has 4 GB of internal memory, runs on Android 4.1.1 and connects to Google Play so you can have full entertainment at your fingertips.
When starting up the Netchef, you get a really cool start screen. The screen is divided into 3 sections consisting of the Netchef’s online database of 2,000+ recipes on the left, popular cooking websites and apps on the right, and a scrolling utility bar on the bottom showcasing a variety of apps and menu buttons within it. You will always have new and fresh recipes to try with all the choices available. With just three buttons, Power, back and home, the controls are super easy to use with the home button also acting as your volume control.
There’s also an SD card slot on top of the Netchef allowing you to increase the storage capacity for games, music, videos, applications or even turning it into a digital picture frame. The opportunities with Netchef are truly endless.
Overall, I was extremely impressed with Netchef and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. If you love being in the Kitchen and love to cook, the Netchef is definitely for you! More information can be found by visiting “Netchef”, and is currently priced at $279.
