How do master pastry chefs bake delicious treats time after time?
They start with a great recipe and follow each step, making sure measurements and timing are accurate.
The Perfect Bake system turns YOU into a master pastry chef. It weighs each ingredient for accuracy and uses built-in timers to alert you when you’re done mixing, baking, or cooling. Need to rescale the recipe? Perfect Bake does the math for you—whether you’re changing the size of your cake pan, the quantity of cookies you want to bake, or the amount of chocolate chips you have on hand.
No more hard-to-follow recipes and missed steps. Perfect Bake guides you step-by-step through the whole process: preparing, adding ingredients, mixing, portioning, and baking.
Just place a bowl on the scale and start adding ingredients. The virtual bowl fills up and shows you when to stop. The Perfect Bake app then automatically advances to the next step.
Master pastry chefs produce consistently delicious results by weighing all their ingredients, a much more accurate method than measuring by volume. Perfect Bake measures everything by weight, giving you those same masterfully consistent results every time.
The Perfect Bake app is a math genius. It does all the calculations for you to scale your recipe to the amount you want to make.
Tell Perfect Bake the exact number of cookies, cupcakes, muffins, etc. you want to make and the app automatically scales the recipe for you.
The recipe calls for a 13×9 inch pan and all you have is a 6 inch round pan? Use our patent pending pan sizer and the app automatically scales the recipe for you.
Only have half a bag of chocolate chips? No problem. Put the chocolate chips on the scale and tell Perfect Bake to scale the recipe.
All our recipes are created and taste-tested by our professional pastry chefs. New recipes are included with app updates.
Our recipe database even includes healthier alternatives like gluten-free and vegan.

The Perfect Bake app features three different timers for mixing, baking, and cooling. These timers can run concurrently so that you can streamline your baking process. For example, you can put in a new batch to bake while letting the old batch cool.
The Mix timer tells you what speed to set your mixer at, what attachment to use, and how long to mix.
The Bake timer alerts you when it’s time to take your baked goodies from the oven. It even says if and when you should rotate your baking sheet.
The Cool timer alerts you when your treats have been properly cooled.
Tell the app what ingredients you have on hand, and it tells you which recipes you can make. And there’s more: pull up one of those recipes and there will be check marks next to the ingredients you have.
Just put your cupcake pan on the scale and pour your batter. The portion meter shows you when to stop.
To make the baking process even simpler, the app tells you which of the three included colored bowls to use for each step. The bowls have non-skid bottoms and are microwave and dishwasher safe.
Precise measurement of each ingredient is critical for baking success. Weighing is much more accurate than measuring by volume. This is why all professional pastry chefs weigh their ingredients.
Pouring ingredients into a bowl on a scale is much faster than measuring each ingredient using a measuring cup or spoon.
No measuring spoons or cups to clean. Many Perfect Bake recipes require one or two bowls, that’s it.
Sometimes the battery voltage may fall to a level that causes glitches but not trigger the low battery indicator.
The scale is shipped with protective cardboard shims to protect it in transit. If you don’t remove the shims your measurements will be significantly off. Check around the whole rim of the scale and pull out any cardboard you find.
Sometimes, especially with cell phones, junk like lint can clog the headset jack and keep the cable from fully seating.
That means it doesn’t just play sound but also contains a microphone pin for receiving sound. Some tablets only have a headphone jack and use a separate microphone built into the case. These devices are not compatible with the Perfect Bake scale.
This means powering it completely down and powering it back on. This is accomplished on most devices by holding down the power switch and following the prompts. Briefly tapping the power switch only shuts off the screen, it does not power down the device.
Newer versions of Android, when they detect something plugged into the headset, will automatically set the volume to a “safe” level for listening with headphones. This level is sometimes too low for the scale to communicate. If you get a popup from the system asking to set to a safe level, say “no”. If you miss the popup (and it’s easy to miss), go to Settings/Sound/Volume and make sure the slider is all the way to the right.
Certain EQ profiles might affect communication between the scale and app.
What version of the Android OS are supported?
Android version 4.1 or higher is required for Perfect Bake.
Can I use a rooted version of Android?
While custom rooted versions of Android like Cyanogen might work with Perfect Bake, we cannot guarantee that they will so we do not support them. Some rooted Android mods use custom EQ settings that affect communication between the scale and app.
What versions of Apple iOS are supported?
Apple iOS 6 or higher is required for Perfect Bake.
