This post is the second of three gift guides sponsored by Xfinity. Focused on themes of gifts and gadgets that help us push the boundaries of how and where we watch TV! As usual ~ content is all me, and they’re sponsoring me to do it! And for the official bit: “This post is brought to you by Xfinity from Comcast.

Today we’re taking it into the kitchen! A peek at gadgets/accessories to help you when you’re in the kitchen and porting TV over, whether for entertainment or following along your favorite cooking shows - pausing, rewinding, using the TV as your live cook book of sorts… also take a peek at some Tasteologie Editors’ favorite cooking show indulgences all on the next page!
I was never big on having a TV in the kitchen… but the iPad as been my TV in there lately… also my cookbook… For the TVing, i let it grab my TV from the living room on my iPad via Slingbox to watch recorded shows, etc… Slingbox HD - Plug it in to your TV at home. The watch your TV like normal through the app available for your iPad!
SO when iPad cooking/watching in the kitchen, here are some fun options to mount it so you don’t get it covered in cooking goo and can still have good viewing…
Griffin Loop - such a nice simple design, you could probably use it for other things in the kitchen too.
The Wallee - an easy mount you can put just about anywhere!
Incase Convertible Magazine Jacket - incredibly thin, anything will wash right off of it, and versatile viewing angles for all those follow alongs to your favorite cooking shows…

Ok now say instead of an iPad you want an actual TV in your kitchen, or want to hide a little computer in the cabinet and mount a flat panel monitor that can discreetly disappear under the cabinet? Here are a few mount options that flip up!
