It's a great concept, and if you can find what you want, it'll work perfectly! However, this week work better if you're willing to choose a recipe from the app, rather than coming in knowing what you want to make - even generally. I wanted to make a cheesecake, and couldn't find anything to suit my needs. The shop seems to feature fancy varieties over basics. There is an area to download more, but it's a short, short list of a few categories like "Valentine's day" and "game night." I kept thinking I wasn't finding the right area, but that's it. On top of that, it takes a really long time to enter your own recipe. I tried, and even when I finished, the recipe did not function as I expected while editing, and I don't know how to fix it. It would've been easiest to make it normally. In short, if you can find what you need, this really is great. If not, don't try to use this.
As a professional Baker and Pastry Chef with 30 years of experience using scales both digital and others I give this product a 5 Star rating, this is a must need for any kitchen. I love using it both at work for product development (the ability to get the nutritional value is worth $200+ alone) and at home for making wonderful treats for friends and family. The Pro version scale is one of the best that I have used, the accuracy is incomparable to anything you can buy at your average kitchen stores.
This is one of the slickest, well written apps ever. Foolproof, loaded with features, full help files and a developer who supports the app and its users. Plus you can use one scale with all three apps. There's the ability to add your own recipes too. It shows you how to input your recipe and even checks to see if you set it up properly. Awesome.
Doesn't work with my phone/perfect bake scales :(
Would give 5 stars if... I was able to use corded scale on my fire tablet, phone is hard to see when cooking. Other then that, I LOVE IT! Makes cooking and clean up so much quicker and easier. Love that I can add my own recipes. Would be nice if there was a written and video tutorial how to add recipes...It would be a big help! Also love that I can add a picture for my recipe. Love the mixing bowls that come with the scale. Very sturdy and non skid bottoms. If I could use my corded scale I would give this 5 stars!
Don't normally rate apps, but.... This is a WONDERFUL idea. Added my recipe to it, took a Loooong time to figure out how to add it, but it's in there now. So much easier while baking for Christmas. Didn't have a kitchen full of measuring devices and much less mess. Please, please PLEASE add more practical and more healthy recipes so I don't have to spend hours adding them myself. Would be fantastic if it had some sort of easy add recipes or a partnership with Pinterest perhaps. Looking forward to new developments.
