(Pocket-lint) - Sony is launching a new bundle kitchen-friendly version of its Xperia Tablet Z. The new Sony bundle includes a water-resistant 32GB 10.1-inch Xperia Tablet Z, wireless cooking thermometer, tablet stand and exclusive content.

The new kitchen-friendly bundle will set you back $650 (£410) in the US where it is on sale now. Not bad considering the tablet alone is $600. So what do you get for that extra $50?

Apart from the tablet, whose ability to be rinsed off under the tap is ideal for the kitchen, you also get some robotic sous chef extras. The accessories total $115 apparently. That includes an iGrill from iDevices which is an app-enabled Bluetooth meat thermometer. This will alert you when your food is ready up to 200 feet away. There's also a foldable stand that should make reading cooking instructions less of a hassle.

A selection of pre-loaded cooking apps help find meals, organise shopping lists, and get time-saving tips. They include BigOven with over 250,000 recipes, Evernote Food for keeping records, Juicing Recipes for healthy juice options, Food Planner Pro to make meal plans, iGrill Pro for the thermometer and Out of Milk Shopping List for - well - shopping lists.

We've contacted Sony to see if this deal is coming to the UK and will update you once we hear back.
