Change the way you bake!
My husband got me this as a lark of a gift. It has fast become one of my favorite kitchen tools.
Between the thin pizza dough recipe and the pancakes, Drop has paid for itself in takeout and restaurant savings. There are lot of other recipes, and new ones being added, that I want to try.
But it also works as a great scale. With my IPad on a stand, I can now easily bake by weight. Some of my favorite recipes, like the no knead bread standby, work so much better using the Drop scale. With sites like King Arthur flour that have weight options (metric too), my measuring cups are feeling neglected.
Using Drop to measure saves time too. My teenager had to cook for homework one night. He'd signed up for scones, so we found a weight-based recipe. He was so impressed at how much easier and faster it was to measure without cups and spoons. The results were better too. He did everything on his own and was proud of how much everyone in class liked how they looked and tasted.
Drop stands by its product with customer service from real, live people. I was experiencing a bug after an update and reported it. Imagine my pleasant surprise when my email was answered by a knowledgeable, friendly staffer.
I'm waiting for some more basic recipes, like one for a good pasta dough, but there are plenty of others to keep me busy in the meantime. I am so pleased my husband got this for me as a gift. He's reaping the benefits too.

Good gadget if you want your children to bake with you
This is a great idea overall. I bought it for my wife as a xmas gift. Unfortunately, she was not into backing and asked to return it. After I talked to a seller, I figured out that I would lose almost 40% of money I paid for it as shipping and repackaging fees. At this point, I decided to ask my 6 years old son if he wanted to bake with me. He was thrilled! We baked together brownies, oatmeal cookies and strawberry shortcakes. He was excited and did about 90% of all preparations each time! I am talking about a boy who cannot sit for 15 minutes doing one thing. The Drop app provided good instructions and pictures (sometimes) how to prepare ingredients. The only cons are that it is a little bit too pricy for a scale and recipy list is somewhat limited. Hopefully, they will continue to add new recipies.

Love This Scale and Recipe App!
The Drop Non-Slip Silicone Connected Kitchen Scale and Interactive Recipe App is an awesome combo and I love it! Historically, I have not done a lot of the cooking for our family. In the year since I got my Drop Scale, I’ve been in the kitchen way more! I love the step-by-step instruction and really appreciate the interactivity of the Recipe app. It adds a whole new dimension to cooking and makes experimenting more accessible and fun. I love the community aspect of Drop Kitchen and study the recipe ratings to glean any wisdom for cooks far wiser than I. Well done, Drop Kitchen, and keep those recipes coming!!

Novel Scale with App
Seems accurate, and was easy to sync with iPad. Entering a new recipe with the beta program took a while but worked, although it resizes everything in ounces or grams, not teaspoons or cups.

Great IoT kitchen product
Made the banana bread recipe and was literally the best I've ever made and tasted. The user interface is awesome and the step by step instructions made it really easy to follow. No need for measuring cups anymore! Have already bought more for gifts and the recipients all loved it. Hope they can keep adding recipes to the platform. The best part for my family is the scaling feature. If I only want to make enough for a certain amount of people the Drop app can automatically recalibrate all the ingredients. Looking forward to Drop's next products to help me in the kitchen

An amazingly cool product!
The Drop Scale is an amazing product! I've made a dozen recipes using my Drop since buying it on a whim after reading an article and I love it. Setup and connectivity are simple. The scale and app work perfectly together and the recipes are excellent. I'm not sure exactly why, but the combination of the scale, the app and the Drop community makes me want to cook, makes me enjoy the process even! I highly recommend this product to those who enjoy cooking and those who enjoy the latest tech. If you happen to be both, like me, you will love it!

The Time for the DROP Kitchen Scale has NOT Arrived.
A couple of things everyone should know. This devices does NOT work with Android devices, yet. It works with SOME iPad devices, not the iPad GEN 1 or 2. There is also a limited number of recipes on the devices. The website lists 'hundreds' but in reality many are drinks and recipes other than dinner. When you isolate your search for 'dinner' recipes, there's a grand total of 23. If I knew this, I would not have spent the $100 for this device. They've obviously still got a lot of work to do to get this to a point where it's really useful.
