If you’ve ever attempted your culinary skills at baking, then you probably know that it’s not an easy feat. Baking requires exact measurement, finesse and patience for the finished product to come out mighty tasty. While finesse and patience are something you have to provide yourself, exact measurement can be achieved with the help of the Drop scale. Drops wants to be your baking assistant, replacing the need for measuring cups. The scale is super easy to use and should be a staple in any kitchen with a baker in the household since it nails your favorite cake recipe, every time.
Anyone who has a Pinterest page dedicated to tasty treats and sweets will appreciate the help from the Drop since all you do is place a mixing bowl on top of it and let it do all the work. Instead of measuring the mixture based on volume, the scale uses weight based on specific ingredients. It’ll then alert you via it’s voice-powered controls (as well as on its display on its accompanying app) when you have mixed enough milk, sugar, flour, etc. in for the correct recipe. And if you’re only cooking for one, Drop will effortlessly cut the recipe in half without you having to recalculate anything.
Not only will it help you make delicious baked goods, but it also means less cleanup, which is always a plus, since it means single-bowl baking. The device’s app also has lots of tasty interactive recipes built-in. Besides step-by-step directions, it’ll also suggest ingredient substitutions if you’re out of something and will even update your shopping list. And you don’t have to worry about getting your iPad or smartphone all dirty and sticky with all your baking ingredients since the Drop will automatically take you to the next step in the recipe on your device’s screen, as well as alert you to get your treat from the oven. Very helpful from a digital assistant if you ask us. Up your baking game by pre-ordering it for $80.
