There are many uses for a computing device in the kitchen :)

I am not sure you would mangle an industrial grade touch screen that easily, while one would have to think where to put it in the kitchen this should not be hard, these things are designed for very harsh environments heat/steam will not be big issues. The problem I have with paper based books is exatly what you are saying they are in dreadful condition, they are the ones with the sanitization problems, not so easy to sanitize paper, and people never usually do. If you can open your refrigerator or oven door no reason why you could not grab a stylus and scroll your display.

I am not asking for a small display tablet device, With some recipes you may need to scroll but a vast amount of my recipes hold on an a4 sheet that will display on a 15 inch portrait screen without the need for scrolling, the other thing to consider is this, sometimes you do not need to see all of the recipe at once, sometimes I need only to be reminded of a few things to do so I usually go to that spot, then there could be a number of styli anchored nearby for scrolling, there is also the possibility of an assistant, 99% of the time I have one and lastly, god forbid voice command :)

you usually know what you want to cook before you start cooking so it is not hard to imagine that one could call up a recipe on screen and then use that without touching afterwards when your fingers may be messy. There are industrial grade touch screens for factories and other hazardous places so I see no reason why a display along those lines would not be available for the kitchen, like anything else it would have to be maintained, It could be splash resistant so that it could be cleaned and sanitized, just like cutting boards.
