This DIY iPad holder is perfect for the stylish chef who loves to add personal décor touches. With an estimated cost of $16 for the materials, it’s an affordable option as well.



This Koala iPad & Tablet Wall mount is a wonderful solution that can be moved around. A refrigerator with a built-in touchscreen can cost well over $2k, but this solution will only set you back a few dollars.



For a minimalist solution, simply put your ereader in a large Ziploc bag. The brave soul in this video proved the effectiveness of this method by using their iPad in the Ziploc under running water without catastrophe. For a slightly more attractive option, try a specialized plastic cover like ChefSleeves ($19.99 for a pack of 25). We wouldn’t recommend dunking your electronics in the sink, but they should be safe from a few splashes.
