QOOQ also offers access to hundreds of ingredient fact sheets and videos demonstrating culinary techniques. Additionally QOOQ's personalized features allow users to input their own favorite recipes and share with friends, create weekly menus and shopping lists, and automatically adjust ingredient quantities. Users can also take advantage of QOOQ's web browser, access to email and social networking platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, video and MP3 players, online radio, weather app, and digital photo album capability.
"QOOQ adapts itself to the user. No matter the dietary preferences, restrictions or time constraints, QOOQ is the multi-media cooking coach that can guide anyone, regardless of their experience level. The user will never feel alone or lost as they prepare their dish," explains Hepp.
The QOOQ culinary tablet comes pre-loaded with 1,000 recipes and videos. Users will also be able to purchase additional recipes, individually or in themed recipe packs, or subscriptions for monthly ($9.90/mo) or yearly ($99.00/mo) premium access.
