Top ReviewsNever buy boxed cakes again!

I bought this for my wife who USED to consider herself a "baker". With this device, however, she is being recognized by anyone who has enjoyed her baked goods as the go-to person when it comes to baking. I am her glorified assistant so I feel like my review holds some water. Here we go:
Scale: Small enough to store away easily and rugged enough to handle a few dropped bowls. Super accurate (makes 30 measurements a second I think). Built in speaker is plenty loud. Set-up and clean-up is a breeze.
App: Very user-friendly and doesn't take up a ton of memory. Directions are easy to follow. Icons are vibrant and easy to recognize. Pantry feature works perfectly! Portioning feature is early spoken about but incredibly helpful to get even sized cookies, cupcakes, etc. Haven't tried it with a smart phone because the tablet version is just perfect.
Results: So far we've made chocolate chip muffins, double chocolate chip peanut butter muffins, blueberry coffee cake, snickerdoodles, pecan sandies, and a three layer Devil's Food cake with chocolate ganoche. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, was spot on delicious.
Verdict: I will never stop promoting this product. My wife claims she will only bake with the Perfect Bake until it does and then she will buy another one. We are purchasing the Perfect Drink soon to try it out as well. Only complaint.... The scale for the baking app will not work with the drinking app. Other than that, bravissimo!
How did I ever successfully bake before finding this gadget???

Oh my gosh this gadget is fantastic!
If you work in a large food service operation/bakery, you already know that chefs working in this type of environment use weight to measure nearly everything -- it is the only way to know that you are not overpacking a measuring cup (or likewise, not seeing a "bubble" in a cup of flour). The recipes on the app are spot-on and I've made some things that are out of this world tasty.
I know that the later (and more expensive) versions of this product feature better interfaces (i.e. bluetooth, wireless, etc), but I have had no problem with the wired connection -- I even have an iPhone 7 and have to use the dongle with lightning port and have had no troubles. The Perfect Bake app is fun to use -- and has tons of recipes. I have not yet converted my own recipes but plan to do so soon. As an added bonus, I was able to download and use the Perfect Drink and Perfect Blend apps too -- which makes this product very useful for making mixed drinks and smoothies.
I am very impressed with the capacity of the scale (11 pounds!) and have even used the scale without the phone as a kitchen scale. It is my understanding that the manufacturer has discontinued this model, but it is still a very good product and you can't beat the price. I was prepared to pay quaduple what I paid after seeing this product at a local kitchen store.
Finicky but Fun!

I used the app and the scale to make a batch of gingersnaps and they came out really well! I appreciate the fact that you can adjust the recipes in the app to make a smaller or larger batch without having to deal with weird conversions as it is all done for you and based on weight. The scale seemed to be a bit sensitive when it came to smaller measurements but after extended use I got the hang of it. It's a really easy way to bake!
Great for kids or novice bakers

Just received this today, and so far so good! My daughter is interested in cooking and baking but finds it hard to follow regular recipes, especially when it comes to measuring. She has made a couple things so far and she said they both came out great! I think she is having more fun using it than she is eating what she makes. If you are an experienced baker then you wont have much use for this, but if you are new to baking or want a little bit of help then this is a great option. I browsed through the recipes and there's so many options, you will have plenty to choose from!
Great learning tool. Gives you the ability to tackle dishes you might otherwise be too intimidated t

I love this product. Great recipes and they aren't just desserts. The measurements are very accurate. Unfortunately presentation of the final products has to do with skill level in executing the techniques and your equipment but I'm learning and thanks to this product I'm getting better. I also recommend the Drop scale for more recipes and the orange chef prep pad for accurate nutritional information.

I love to cook but baking skills need a little work this item here works really well. It's a Aux Corded connection to the table or phone and it comes with a thermostat, 3 bowels, and a tablet/phone holder for a really good price!
