THE HOME STRETCH
The Home Stretch
It's the bottom of the 9th inning and the bases are loaded. We stepped up to the plate and just pointed our bat towards the outfield stands–time to knock this thing outta the park. If you're not into baseball: we're very close to getting our smart food scale and iOS app into your eager hands. Thanks to your input, we've made some awesome changes and upgrades. Right now we're working out some of the finer details to get things just right, but wanted to give your the first look at what you've helped create.
Introducing Prep Pad. The smart food scale designed like no other.
Prep Pad™ is the heavy weight of food scales. American made, with our signature, recycled wood/paper composite top and a unibody aluminum base, Prep Pad is thin enough to be stored in any drawer but beautiful enough that you won't want to. Featuring low energy, Bluetooth® 4 LE wireless connectivity, the scale and the app connect automatically. And with an accuracy equal to the weight of a paperclip, you’ll have a precise sense of control.

- Unibody aluminum base
- Anti-slip feet

If you're in the Bay Area we invite you to come visit us and get a hands-on demo with the idea you helped make a reality.

Chef Sleeve Is Now The Orange Chef Company
Chef Sleeves were our first product and helped define our mission by making it safe to bring the iPad in to the kitchen. We've grown up since then and are embarking on our greater mission creating confidence and discovery in the kitchen. We want to be the smart cooking company and thanks to your help with Prep Pad and Countertop, we're well on our way. That said, we've outgrown Chef Sleeve as a company and brand name. We will continue to create and offer supporting products like Chef Sleeves, but we feel now is the time to adopt a new name. Since we've always loved the orange chef logo we've had from day one, we're going to become him. We are now The Orange Chef Company.
