KICMount: Magnetize your iPad!

KICMount Feb

I have a secret to confess: I am majorly unorganized outside of my computer. I’m great with dates, my email, blog, pictures, calendar, and all that stuff. But one look at my office and you’ll be able to see my organizational issues have reached an all-time high. I blame it on the fact that I don’t have a system in place; that I don’t have organizational space. I need shelves in the closet and drawers in my desk. But you know what? Deep down, I know it won’t matter. I’m buried in a sea of paper and I don’t know how to swim my way to the surface.

90% of all my paper woes are recipes. I subscribe to tons of magazines and I pull out recipes and other ideas all month long. I read lots of blogs and I print lots of recipes I’m “going to make” someday. All of these recipes have a home (binders) in theory. Problem is…they never make it that far. The worst part is that, when I find a recipe I like, I can never find the printed recipe when I want it again. NEVER. I cannot tell you how many times I have reprinted recipes because I cannot find them in my ocean of paper. It’s a little ridiculous (and expensive, if you consider the cost of paper and printer ink)!

This is why I’m so thankful the KICMount found its way into my life. Have you heard of the KICMount? It’s a genius concept: a plastic iPad case with heavy duty magnets on the back. Simply snap your iPad into the case and your iPad is magically magnetic. Really! You can stick it anywhere metal. My favorite place to stick my iPad with the KICMount is on the side of my refrigerator, by my mixer. It’s really good for me because I am really klutzy when I cook. Cocoa and powdered sugar go everywhere. Liquid flies out of spoons. It’s really not safe for my iPad to be on the counter, so I never really used it in the kitchen before. Now? Now I just stick it on my fridge and voila! I have access to an internet full of recipes, no printing needed.

Last week I had to make some cupcakes based off of my Banana Cake with Caramel Filling (recipe soon!) and of course I could not find the printed recipe buried in my office. But, instead of printing it out again, which is my standard M.O., I just used my KICMount. I pulled up my site and the recipe and made the cupcakes. And, I saved a tree and didn’t spill mashed banana on my iPad. So, pretty much, I {heart} my KICMount. And I know you will too!

The KICMount is helping me de-clutter my recipes, one piece of paper at a time. Now…my cookbooks and party supply mess. That’s another story…

  1. Cool, but I don’t know where I’d “stick” it…I have all stainless steel in my kitchen:-(

      Check the side of your fridge (if accessible) often the sides are made with a magnetic material or lower grade of Stainless Steel with less nickle in it thereby making magnets useful. Or you can paint the wall with Sherwin Williams magnetic paint. ๐Ÿ™‚

        I love, love the idea of the magnetic paint. I may have to do that in my daughter’s room!

      It does stick really well Cindy! I was worried the first time I used it but it didn’t budge!


  4. This would be awesome – if only I had an I Pad. I think I’m the only one on the planet without. Hmmm, mother’s day perhaps??


    • Dorothy Kern replied on February 17th, 2013 at 6:37 pm

      Yes, for sure! Mother’s Day! ๐Ÿ™‚


  5. Any idea if this is US only Dorothy? I’ve been wanting one of these since you last mentioned them.

      I’m not sure about the shipping, but I’m sure if you email them, the price would be the special rate! ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. Great idea. I have a similar problem you have. So i got a binder and now the binder is full of unorganized paper but at least it is in the binder ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Dorothy Kern replied on February 17th, 2013 at 6:36 pm

      Yes, I have one of those too… ๐Ÿ™‚


  7. I am passing this info to a friend … she was using an edible spray sheen on a cake and sprayed her iPad (that was laying on the counter) too … not good !


    • Dorothy Kern replied on February 19th, 2013 at 6:45 pm

      Oh no! This is totally for her then. ๐Ÿ™‚
