Blendtec Connect adds Bluetooth smarts into the mix

id="cnetReview" section="rvwBody"> CHICAGO -- Blendtec unveiled its new Connect Food Preparation System today here at the International Home and Housewares Show. The system syncs a blender, 바카라사이트 mixer and scale with a free smartphone app over Bluetooth. Select from one of the app's hundreds of recipes, and the system will tailor the cooking process to your needs and walk you through the preparation step by step.

24745506564_55e0fae3c8_b.jpgLest you think these are smarts for smarts' sake, Blendtec insists that the goal is to make it easier for you to prepare and cook great food. Blendtec founder and star of the popular "Will it Blend?" videos Tom Dickson claims that most of the connected kitchen gadgets already on the market don't actually make people into better, more productive cooks.

"Our vision with Blendtec Connect is to combine online connectivity with our advanced appliance engineering to make cooking simpler, faster and smarter than ever before," Dickson said.

Tyler Lizenby/CNET To that end, Blendtec Connect claims to eliminate the need for measuring spoons and cups by automatically sensing ingredient quantities on the smart scale -- similar to the way well-reviewed products like Drop and Perfect Bake work. The app can also customize its recipes based on how many servings you want to make or how much of a specific ingredient you've got in your pantry. From there, it can send recipe-specific settings and cycles straight to each appliance.

We've been impressed with the sheer power of Blendtec blenders in the past , though we ran into some pretty significant problems with the Blendtec Designer 725 , which shredded the rubber gaskets on the bottom of its WildSide jars. Though specs aren't available yet, Blendtec's team tells us that the new connected model is a "725c," and in the promo pictures, it looks to come with the same WildSide jar as the 725.

Blendtec's team claims that the problems I encountered with the 725 had to do with the jar's design and not with the blender itself. Blendtec told us that they had reached out to all 725 owners to address any concerns, though it's unclear if the jar's design has been tweaked. At any rate, I'll be eager to test it out and see if it behaves a little better in the test kitchen.
