You’ve just transferred some juicy tomatoes into the pot for a beautiful fresh pasta sauce and go to your phone to see the next step of the recipe, but your hands are covered in tomato juice. Time to stop and wipe off your hands to make sure you keep your phone clean.

Messy hands, meet Cook with Me, a collection of voice-activated recipes in Food Network’s In the Kitchen app where you can command Sage, the recipe assistant, to walk you through each step. There are also instructional videos along the way to make sure you’re on track to a delicious, fail-proof meal.

“We are always looking to solve our customers’ most common cooking problems when we think about making new updates to all of our Food Network products,” said Al Ming, director of product, apps and emerging technologies at Scripps Lifestyle Studios, which handles Food Network’s digital operations. “The Cook with Me hands-free feature is an essential tool for modern cooking experiences, and we are excited to bring this update to the In the Kitchen app.”

How it works:

Open up the In the Kitchen app on your iPhone or iPad (available for download in the App Store). The Cook with Me collection is located under Top Picks – the first category you’ll see when you open the app. Choose one of the featured recipes and hit the button that says “Cook Hands-Free.” From there you’ll get a quick tutorial on how to use the voice commands and then you’re ready to cook — without the worry of smudging your phone with messy hands.

Right now there are nine popular, easy-to-make recipes available for hands-free cooking, and over time the list will grow to include more seasonal recipes from Food Network Kitchen’s chefs.

The kitchen is one place you should be getting your hands dirty! With help from Food Network’s In the Kitchen app, you don’t have to worry about ruining your tech while you work.
