Wink Cooking books: you like those in electronic format or not

I was debating this with wife past weekend.

She has a preference I do have a different one (will tell mine once the poll is almost over, lol)

Do you prefer your cooking books in electronic or regular paper format?

Neither. Don't need cookbooks, because directions are on the box.

I haven't tried a cookbook in e-format yet. I'm not sure my reader would be big enough to follow a recipe without having to flip back and forth through pages.

I'd like to see what other people have to say...

I have qualms about using my Touch (or laptop) in the kitchen because it's a lot more expensive to replace one of those if something happens to it than to replace a paper cookbook.

I don't need any cookbooks in e-format because I have tons and tons of e-recipes already, filed in my email (I belong to another message board that is about sharing recipes). When I want to make one, I print it out and it can get dirty in the kitchen and then I throw it out. I ALSO have two huge shelves full of cookbooks, many in hardcover, that I enjoy browsing through and cooking from. These two things (recipes on my computer, pbook cookbooks) are serving me well, so I can't think of any reason to put cookbooks on my ereader. Plus I would not want to use the touchscreen after putting my hands in a bowl of raw meat.

I like to browse through my cook books and cooking magazines, read a recipe here and another one there, look at the pictures - and then decide what I want to cook/eat.
I would not get the same pleasure out of looking through recipes on a reader - so my kitchen is an ereader-free zone (the only one ).

Neither -- I like cooking APPS. I see a trend in this already. I have Jamie Olivers and Mario Batelli's apps and the videos are fantastic. Cooking "books" fall into the category where there is SO much more opportunity than just having the words/pictures of the paper book appear on a screen.

I use my Kindle for cookbooks, just put it in a ziplock bag to keep it pristine. (Also use the Kindle for knitting patterns, too.)

I have several e-cookbooks. While I do prefer printed cookbooks (especially ones with nice color photos!), I have used my Kindle in the kitchen several times -- inside a plastic bag so I won't get any food on it.

I don't need cookbooks in color. By the time I'm done cooking, there's no color left in my food.

I could see getting one from the library, and copying down particularly interesting recipes, but to use it during cooking, not really.

My mother used to cook like that. She was a fabulous cook overall, but her cooked (boiled?) vegetables were very pale.
