When it comes to non-work related activities on my iPad, my go-to uses for my iPad are reading books, magazines, and using the WholeFoods app to find recipes. While I absolutely recommend the Whole Foods app it no doubt has its limitations. For starters more often than not I’ll be less than familiar with a measurement and will have to do a quick Google search to find a conversion. How many kilograms are in an ounce? Don’t ask me I have no idea…oh wait hold on and let me get out Kitchen Aid Kit Pro.
Kitchen Aid Kit Pro packs quite a bit of useful tools that’ll help with your cooking. As you might have already picked up on, Kitchen Aid Kit Pro includes a friendly tool that effortlessly converts cooking terms that you might not be familiar with such as weights, volume (I.E. litre and cup), temperature, and even cooking periods. So unless you’ve mastered your 4H cooking classes and manage to be dorkier than me and memorize all of this info, this spiffy converter makes following recipes that much easier.
The other measuring tool in Kitchen Aid Kit Pro lets you shape a virtual glass into a glass that you have at home. Why? So you can use your glass at home to do eyeball measuring with more precision. There’s even virtual food included to help you with that measuring job. Best of all is that you can save your virtual glasses to use in the future.
There’s a few more features such as calorie counter, estimate on how long various foods safely last, but the extra feature that pushes Kitchen Aid Kit Pro into becoming a great app is the timer. Tap to start the timer and you’ll be brought to a virtual stove where you can set a timer for each and every burner as well as the oven. I know that I can’t be the only one to set a timer for one burner, and have to set it again for another…but how long was that other burner on for again? Thankfully setting a handful of timers can’t be any easier.
The Bottom Line: 8/10 (Great)
Kitchen Aid Kit Pro is one of those apps that seems a little silly at first but as soon as you start using it you’ll never know how you cooked without it.
