The kitchen countertop is a dynamic environment. Food, in all of its various forms, finds its way onto the kitchen counter, only to end up eaten. But it's all those steps before the grand finale that keep it interesting. Before the first bite can happen (not counting the nibblers), all the sorting, chopping, and general prep work must take place. With all those moving parts sooner or later something is bound to fall to the floor. More and more, that something is in danger of being a tablet.

Tablets of all sizes have made their way into the kitchen as a go-to resource for inspiration, cooking tips, or just a plain old-fashioned recipe. Of course, the longer tablets are in the kitchen, the more prone they are to splashes and smashes. Luckily, there's a part of the kitchen that gets used for little more than decorating, storage, and occasionally testing the doneness of spaghetti. But it's more than just the wall CTA Digital looks to conquer (along with their knife block tablet stand and paper towel holder tablet stand).

Capable of mounting to the wall, underneath cabinetry, or to be picked up and placed wherever, the CTA Digital PAD-KMS 2-in-1 Kitchen Mount Stand ($39.99) helps keep the modern kitchen helpers out of the way of the action while helping to create it. For those that like their tablets a little closer to the action, the stand can be separated from the mounted base, allowing it to be used on any flat surface. Designed for a variety of tablets, the adjustable holder makes following along with a recipe neat and tidy -- at least as far as the tablet is concerned.
