Drop will smarten up your baking routine
I'm Megan Wollerton for CNET Appliances standing here with the Adaptix Drop Smart kitchen scale.
This $100 device actually connects to an iOS app via bluetooth 4.0 and lets you follow recipes.
From start to finish.
I really like the minimalist sort of streamline design of this scale.
It doesn't have any display it's just really, really sleek and simple.
The app is similar.
It kind of looks like a page off of Pinterest.
You can scroll through the recipes and select the one you want.
I made double chocolate muffins and a quick bread with time.
And both ended up turning out very well.
Similar to Perfect Bake, a competing product, the app let me know when I had added the right amount of ingredients.
So as I was adding in those chocolate chips, it let me know when I had added just the right amount.
And then proceeded to the next step.
I ran into a couple issues where I overfilled an ingredient.
The end or the app actually proceeded to the next step before I had finished with the previous one.
But over all, it worked really well, even though I prefer the design and style of the Drop app, the Perfect Bay app actually lets you add in your own ingredients and edit existing ones to your exact specifications.
I really wish Drop had this functionality, it does say it is adding that at a later date, but right now it is.
But in general in the drop versus Perfect Fake debate I would say Drop is more of a sophisticated product, something that I would get for my mom or a good friend and Perfect Bake seems like more of a family gift.
Something that would involve kids because of the color coded bowls and other accessories it comes with.
Drop is a little bit pricey at a hundred bucks but I think it is a really clever product.
Very well executed and could add a new level of fun and interactivity to your baking experience.
Thanks for watching.
Be sure to check out my full review of Drop on CNET.com.
