Those of you searching for a tablet that can act as your sous-chef will now find one from Sony.

The Sony Xperia Tablet Z Kitchen Edition promises to help you prepare tonight's dinner with the aid of recipes, shopping lists, and even a meat thermometer. Plopped onto its foldable stand, the tablet is designed to rest on your kitchen counter so it's easily accessible. The tablet is also water-resistant, which means it should hold up under stains and spills.

The Kitchen Edition comes preloaded with 260 recipes from Saveur magazine, a variety of different food and shopping apps, and several cooking videos. The included iGrill wireless meat thermometer can alert you on your tablet when your food is fully cooked.

Like the regular version of the Xperia Tablet Z, the Kitchen Edition fires up with a 10.1-inch Full HD 1,920x1,200 screen, a Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, 32GB of storage, and a dose of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. An 8-megapixel camera takes pictures from the rear, while a 2-megapixel shooter is in front.

Budding chefs will pay a slight premium to get cooking with the new tablet. The Kitchen Edition costs $649.99 through Sony, a $50 bump over the price of the standard Xperia Tablet Z.
