To call the Prep Pad a food scale seems wrong. I mean, it is a food scale, but there is something beautiful and elegant about it. It feels different than anything I’ve used before.
The Prep Pad connects to an iPad or iPhone via Bluetooth with the touch of a single button (visible in the image above – little black dot on the right side). The app, called “Countertop,” is required to use the scale.
Much like the Prep Pad itself, I found the Countertop App elegant and beautiful. You can watch a quick promo video on the homepage of theorangechef.com, or check out a slightly longer and more detailed video here.
Prep Pad retails for $99.95 (regularly $149.95), and the folks at The Orange Chef have generously included a coupon code just for readers of Scott’s Diabetes, valid until January 15th, 2015, that will drop the price another 10%, which brings your total down to $89.95 with free standard shipping included.
I’d love to hear about your experiences with the Prep Pad if you decide this is something for you (or a loved one). While I still have many emotional triggers around measuring my food, using beautifully designed tools and applications help a lot.
Don’t forget, the coupon code is only valid through January 15, 2015! Be sure to place your order before then to take advantage of the discount.
