A NEW SMART KITCHEN GADGET TAKES THE GUESSWORK
OUT OF GASTRONOMY.
Two of our favorite things—food and technology—mingle in the modern kitchen with the latest smart gadget to hit the market: Countertop. Recipe generator, calorie tracker, food scale, and nutrition coach—the Countertop does it all with its simple and sleek board and corresponding app that knows you better than you know yourself, thanks in part to its seamless integration with your other tech tools. Countertop talks with Jawbone UP and Apple Health, so it knows when you are sleeping, awake, good, and bad. And it gets smarter.
Countertop learns as its goes, and before you know it, will substitute ingredients to avoid your nut allergy, dodge your turnip distaste, and offer suggestions before realizing you need them (think post-workout protein recipes). In addition to its predictive powers, its design is successful in that it works with your existing appliances. Wipe the dust off that slow cooker; the Countertop connects with your Vitamix and Crock-Pot, maximizing those stowed wedding gifts while making a better and healthier you. We also love that the Countertop weighs each ingredient you add, allowing you to get rid of all the gizmos: measuring cups, spoons, and endless drawer clutter.
It takes more than Internet capability for a device to be smart. More than batteries. More than digital. For us, a successful smart device—like all good design—must improve the quality of our lives. And with the potential of custom-tailored, automated mealtimes at our fingertips, the Countertop has become a Modern In Denver must-have.
