Gadget Review: Belkin Kitchen Stand and Wand

The Belkin Kitchen Stand and Wand is rather cool and useful. I cook almost daily and I enjoy trying new recipes, which are sometimes messy. I was often annoyed at having to take extra steps to protect my iPad when I wanted to scroll down a recipe. (Washing my hands when I am dealing with floor every time I need to cross check something is a pain.)

Queue in the Belkin Kitchen Stand and Wand. I had really been looking for something like this for a while.

The stand provides a good reading angle for your table (any tablet). There are two available angles: vertical and flat. Although if you have your iPad in a folio or cover, you may have to take it off. The wand rests in a different holder not connected to the stand, which is actually one of the issues of this stand. Why are they not connected? I would have preferred to keep the stylus in the same stand. I do not need a separate stand for the stylus. It is just begging to get lost.
The stylus is somewhat responsive; sometimes I had to press a bit to get my iPad to respond.

Overall, this is a great product for people who cook a lot and keep their recipes in their tablets.
