Perfect Company has introduced its Perfect Blend interactive recipe app and smart kitchen scale at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
According to the company, the Perfect Blend app and smart scale can be used to help consumers plan healthy meals and track calories and nutrition. The app has a database of more than 200 recipes and will recommend to a consumer a nutrition program based on their goals and dietary preferences.
The app offers a weekly meal plan and automatically builds a shopping list, which can be shared across all smart devices. A consumer can also use the scale to weigh a meal’s portion and the app then calculates nutritional values, making it easier to plan and stick to dietary goals or restrictions, company officials said.
The Perfect Blend kitchen scale weighs items from 6 kg to as little as 0.1 grams, has a backlit LCD screen as well as directional buttons, which can be used to navigate the app and light up to correspond with any in-app actions. In addition, the company said the scale also works as a standalone kitchen scale and timer when not using the app.
“Blenders were among the fastest growing small kitchen appliance categories in 2014,” said Michael Wallace, co-founder, Perfect Company. “These are the types of products that are changing how people prepare and eat their food, especially as more people aim to live healthier lifestyles. With Perfect Blend, we have created a smart and easy way for anyone to incorporate nutritional blended drinks and food into their everyday lives.”
The Perfect Blend is scheduled to be available this year, while the Perfect Drink and Perfect Bake are currently available from $49.99 to $99.99 at retailers including Bloomingdales, Sur la Table, and Best Buy.
