Introduce some precision to your kitchen with gadgets from Perfect Company

Introducing Perfect Drink, Perfect Bake, and Perfect Blend
Your kitchen might just become the most happening culinary hotspot in town — that is, if you equip it with the right hardware. Thanks to a new line of products from the Perfect Company, you ought to be well on your way to fooling even the most discerning critics, and hopefully, making yourself a perfect chef. So what differentiates these products from the thousands of others on the market? In a word, precision. The idea behind the company’s offerings is exacting measurement, because cooking is as much a science as it is an art.

First up is the Perfect Blend Smart Scale and Interactive Recipe App, which allows you to make anything from soups to smoothies to dips to marinades. Simply connect the scale with the Perfect Blend recipe app (available for both iOS and Android). As you add ingredients to the blender, the app will tell you exactly how much you still need to input, or when you’re done, and when you’ve added all the necessary components. Thanks to the hundreds of recipes in the app, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from (and entertain with).

Then, there’s the Perfect Bake Smart Scale, which also, naturally, comes with the Interactive Recipe App. Just choose a recipe from the app and select your serving size. The app will do all the scaling work for you, and you’ll simply need to pour ingredients into color-coded bowls. The scale will weigh each ingredient’s pour, which means you can put away your measuring cups and spoons. And whether you’re baking bread, a pizza, or a pie, this smart scale can help.

Finally, there’s the Perfect Drink, heralded as a smart bartending system capable of allowing anyone to make restaurant-quality cocktails in their home bar. Just place the included shaker (or your drink container of choice) on the scale and head over to the companion app to choose your drink. Perfect Drink will let you know how much of what ingredient to add, and even if you mess up (perhaps after having entertained for just a little too long), the app can then show you how to fix your drink.

All three of these gadgets are available on Amazon, and all start at $50 for the standard model, and $100 for the stainless steel Pro version.

Usually $300, this Roomba robot vacuum is discounted to $189 today
iRobot Roomba 692 Robot Vacuum.

It's not always easy to know how to choose a robot vacuum, especially since there are expensive models that cost nearly $1,000. Luckily, we've spotted a pretty great deal on the iRobot Roomba 692, an entry-level robot vacuum that's great if you want to dip your toes without spending a ton of money. With this deal from Amazon, you can get the Roomba 692 for $189, rather than the usual $300, which is an impressive 37% discount.

Why you should buy the iRobot Roomba 692
Even though the Roomba 692 is an entry-level device, that doesn't mean it isn't packed with features, such as the 3-stage cleaning system that makes sure there's no leftover dust or dirt wherever the Roomba passes. It also has multi-surface brushes for both carpets and hard floors, so you don't have to worry about it not being able to handle carpets, which can be a legitimate issue with other budget robot vacuums. It also manages to clean corners with its special brushes, so you don't have to worry about missing out on certain spots. We also appreciate that it can handle pet hair, so if you have pets, the Roomba 692 will get that shed hair without issue, making it one of the better budget-friendly Roomba deals.

Reolink’s 4K Solar Camera series is changing smart home security for the better [Sponsored]

This content was produced in partnership with Reolink.
For a while now, it seems like smart home security cameras haven't been utilizing the most of our modern advancements. For example, so many cameras are only compatible with 2.4GHz WiFi networks, the lower band. Moreover, many cameras aren't wireless, and when they are, the battery isn't all that great, so they have to be charged often. Reolink, a world-leading and professionally high-tech company, understands these setbacks and is committed to bringing innovation to everyone through the exploration of new smart home security technologies and best-in-class solutions. They’re doing this with the launch of their new 4K Solar Camera series, a lineup of excellent and smart home-friendly cameras with innovative features incorporated.

Consider the Argus PT Ultra, which offers two options for a better and more seamless connection. First, it works with both 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi networks for improved connectivity, but it is wire-free to add an incredible degree of flexibility. Included with the camera is a non-removable, rechargeable 21.6-watt-hour battery -- it lasts anywhere between one to four weeks per charge, depending on usage. And if you want a more sustainable option, you can pair it with the Reolink 6-watt solar panel to charge the camera – and power it – via renewable energy, with no added electricity bills. Here's the real kicker. It's a smart camera with 4K and 8-megapixel resolution support, pan and tilt functionality, and spotlights. It has person, vehicle, and animal detection onboard, too, so it will send alerts if anyone is moving around your property. It's impressive, to say the least, and ups the ante on smart home security, but that’s true of the entire 4K Solar camera series. Let's take a closer look at the entire lineup.
