Verified Purchase
I have been wanting to purchase this since way before it was released - I would go to the website and dream about all the cool ways to use it. So, when I was given some money and gift certificates for my birthday, I ordered the Demy right away.

It arrived yesterday, and having played with it for several hours (including adding recipes and "cookbooks"), I have several observations.

1. Solid construction and intuitive use. The power button is on the bottom and is easy to spot. On either side of the power button are the sockets for the usb cable (included) and the charger (also included). They both have rubber covers that can be placed over the outlet when they are not being used to prevent food getting inside.

2. Able to change font size and brightness level. There are 3 settings for each, making it nice when you're looking at the screen around a big mixing bowl, etc. You can also change the time before the Demy dims and before it "sleeps".

3. The included "gadgetry" in the software. The conversion calculator, the 3 timers, the substitution list - all are terrific. And of course, the ability to put recipes in separate folders ("cookbooks").

4. The recipe input process is fairly painless. I'm a quick typist, so I chose to input my recipes myself rather than paying to have them scanned for me, and the area to input recipes is easy to use. It's a nice, clean interface and is also easy to copy-and-paste if there are favored recipes on other websites.

1. The cookbooks that the Demy came pre-loaded (as well as the individual recipes) cannot be deleted *at this time*. I just spoke to someone in Customer Service, and apparently this option will not be available until mid-August at the earliest.

As of this week you can now remove the preloaded recipes from the Demy by e-mailing the tech support people & just giving them the e-mail address (not the password) associated with your [...] account. It's an all or nothing process (i.e. you can't select which recipes you want removed) but at least you can get those old cookbooks off.
I've also had some discussions with the support people and 'in the works' is going to be an option to search recipes by tags so you'll, hopefully, be able to tag recipes and then find all the 'chicken & garlic" ones without having to scroll thru everying. For now my work around has been to create multiple cookebooks & since you can have a recipe in more than one cookbook I've used those as 'drill down' tags.

I've had the unit for over a month but didn't appreciate it's full value until today when they finally got the synchronization software working.
The Demy is basically a touchscreen, full color, loose leaf cookbook with added functionality.
The reason that I call it a loose leaf cookbook is that by setting up a free account at [...] you can type in all your recipes that you've collected from newspapers, magazines, the internet, etc. and have them downloaded to the device. If you're too lazy to type them in yourself, for a price, key ingredient's partner will scan them in for you so that you can download them to the unit. The 250 recipes that come preloaded on the unit cannot be removed but when you download your own recipes they show up alphabetized in their own file (cookbook) so that you can find them easily by either scrolling thru the list of recipes or typing in the first letter of the dish's name and having that part of the alphabet in the list show up.
You can create as many cookbooks on the [...

I got this for Christmas from my hubby and I absolutely LOVE it! I initially saw this in a cooking magazine in November and was drawn to it as I'd never seen anything like it...basically it's like a Kindle for my kitchen! I read all the reviews I could find, went to the Key Ingredient website to read up on it, and ultimately decided I needed this (I really did too, my recipes were scattered ALL OVER this house). Some of the main problems people had with this device when it first came out seem to have been taken care of.

The Demy comes with a bunch of recipes preloaded on it. Some people may like this, but from what I've seen, many do not. I went through them all and only found one recipe out of the bunch I was interested in keeping, so I moved it to one of my personal cookbooks. If you email Key Ingredient support and let them know you want them removed, they'll get back to you VERY quickly (I heard back from a rep within 10 minutes) and tell you they've deleted them for you, and the next time you sync your Demy to your Key Ingredient account, they'll all be gone (and they mean ALL, you can't pick and choose, so if you see something you like, make sure you add it to one of your own cookbooks). Also, I guess you used to not be able to delete cookbooks or recipes that you added to your account, well, this has been changed as well. You can now delete anything you add.

It does take a little time to add your recipes to your KI acct, but many of mine were from places like 'Taste of Home' or 'Kraft Foods', so I was able to cut and paste the picture and the recipes to my KI page. When you've entered in all your recipes and downloaded the software from their webpage, just plug your Demy in, hit the sync button on your browser, and all your stuff gets transferred to the device. Simple!
