People have a lot to be thankful for particularly with regards to the advancement of mobile technology. The cooks, whether the newbies or the veterans, are among those benefiting from many of today’s smart mobile devices.
The most important role that smartphones and tablets play is providing information on recipes to people who love to cook for their loved ones and friends. With so many websites and apps that feature recipes and tips, it’s fairly easy to prepare and cook dishes with the help of a mobile gadget.
A 2013 survey on the global food trends done by Allrecipes.com showed that a growing number of people are using a mobile device to search for recipes and food inspiration. The survey covered more than 7,000 cooks with many of them cooking for their families as the top users of mobile gadgets.
So what are the top uses of smartphones and tablets for these cooks?
The study found that searching for recipes is the most popular activity with 63 percent of them doing this with their gadgets. Very understandable because with just a few swipes, they can easily find recipes without exerting much effort.
Additionally, the Food Trends survey showed that 26 percent of global cooks use their mobile phones to look for recipes.
For the others (9 percent to 18 percent) who are more visual and do not want to take the time to read recipes, they turn to videos where they can easily follow the steps in preparing and cooking food.
Another use of these mobile devices for cooks is help them check prices. Some 35 percent of them use their smartphones or tablets to determine product prices of their important ingredients through the apps.
And not only that because some are prompted to buy online once they find a great deal and can’t wait to get those ingredients.
