Demy Recipe ReaderIt was slim pickins' for us at the Gourmet Products show this year. One ray of sunshine came from the booth displaying a new digital recipe storage system called Demy.

Demy is a first generation digital cookbook (and more). Weighing just over a pound and a half this nifty little computer sits upright or lays down taking up a small amount of counter space. Demy holds up to 1000 recipes, has a convenient 'favorites' key to access your most used recipes quickly, does metric conversions and even more.
The company offers a free online service that allows you to add all your favorite recipes. If you don't have time to enter recipes off your old recipe cards they even have a service that will enter them for you for about .50 cents each. Once the recipes are in the system you just attach your Demy to the any available USB port on your computer and your recipes will synchronize with the computer -- just like using your iPod!
