If you had a Prep Pad bumper sticker it would say, My food scale is an honor student. More than just showing how much the avocado weighs and flashing some pre-programmed nutritional information about a pound of pork loin, this smart slab connects via Bluetooth to an iPad 3, 4, Mini, or Air to provide real-time insight into your food. That includes solo pieces of fruit or hunks of meat, as well as complete dishes, both store-bought and homemade alike.

As with all trusty devices termed "smart", Orange Chef's Prep Pad outputs data. Lots of it. But to keep the data meaningful, and avoid overwhelming users, the scale's accompanying Countertop app uses an accessible, highly visual interface to interpret the numbers for you. The images and graphs on screen provide both specific details about what you're about to ingest, and an overall picture of the Padded food's contents (i.e., what types of contributions it will make to your gut and ass.)

Prep Pads are accurate to within 1 gram and can provide feedback on the carbs, proteins, calories, weight, and micronutrients in dishes weighing up to 15 pounds. At 6" x 9" x 0.8" the apparatus is thin and compact, similar to a cutting board, and as easy to store in kitchens lacking the countertop space for its permanent display. The Prep Pad top surface is made of a non-porous recycled paper composite that can be sanitized and wiped clean.
