Don't let the name fool you -- the $100 Perfect Blend Pro isn't a blender. It doesn't even come with a blender. Rather, it's a Bluetooth-enabled scale that connects to an iOS or Android app that tells you how to build a smoothie, drink or other blended item based on the weight of the ingredients rather than volume.
You can use the Perfect Blend Pro as a regular kitchen scale, but its biggest draw is the Bluetooth connection. You choose a recipe from the robust selection in the app, select what type of container you will use for your recipe, and place that empty blender pitcher or single-serve container on Perfect Blend Pro. Then, the app tells you what ingredient you need to add. As you add food to your container, the scale tells your device how much you've added based on how much it weighs. Once you've added the correct amount, the app will ding and automatically go to the next ingredient in the recipe. After you've filled your container, the app will tell you how long you need to blend your concoction. The app also keeps track of how many calories and how much fat, protein and carbohydrates are in your smoothie as you build it.
Does this product sounds familiar? The Perfect Blend Pro is another product from the Perfect company, a manufacturer who previously made Perfect Drink ($90 at Amazon) and Perfect Bake smart scales and app for building cocktails and baked goods, respectfully. And we've seen other smart kitchen scales from companies like Drop that work in very similar ways.
