Perfect Bake gives your baking routine a boostPure Imagination's $70 Perfect Bake kit could turn budding bakers into cookie-and-cake-making-connoisseurs.
[MUSIC] Hi there, I'm Megan Wollerton for CNET appliances, here with a review of Pure Imagination's Perfect Bake. Now this $70 kit comes with a digital scale, a stand for your phone or tablet. Three mixing bowls and an oven thermometer. Basically Pure Imagination just wants to make it simpler for you and your family to bake the foods you love. One of the ways they do that is by using this digital scale. They say that measuring is less precise and you don't really wanna be messing around with that when it comes to baking. It's really more of a science than an art. Another way they wanna simplify the baking process is by their app, the perfect bake app. It's available for free for Android and iOS users. I think it works best with a tablet so you can really see everything. You simply connect the scale to headphone jack of your phone or tablet and start baking. And it makes the process so simple. I think this would be particularly good for families with young children for really interactive fun baking experience or for novice bakers who really don't wanna deal with measuring cups and imprecision and just have something kind of take all of the guess work out of it. So I use Pure Imagination's recipe index and I made lemon squares and a flourless chocolate cake. Both were incredibly easy to make. And it walked me through the whole process without any issues whatsoever. So to get started, you just hit the, Bake, button at the bottom of whatever recipe you want to make. And then from there, it'll tell you how to prepare everything. How to set out the baking sheet, if you should cover it with parchment paper, if you should use butter to grease the pan. As you're adding ingredients, it tells you how much you've added, how much you have left, and it'll ding when you've reached the right weight. So once you've added all your ingredients, the Apple instructions you to whisk them or mix them or whatever needs to be done and walk you through to the baking process where you're actually putting it into the oven, including a timer that will go off when it's finished baking. Overall, I'm really impressed with perfect bake. It's definitely a niched product geared towards beginner bakers or family's who want a fun, interactive experience. But seventy bucks isn't bad and I have no problem recommending it. Thanks for watching, be sure to read my full review on cnet.com, I'm Megan [UNKNOWN] for cnet appliances.
