The intelligent cutting board with integrated calorie counter and kitchen timer makes it easier to prepare healthy meals – Advice Eating

I don’t think adding the word “smart” before anything actually makes it a better product; on the contrary, actually… but this chic cutting board makes me figuratively eat my own words.

The key to making a product smart is figuring out how technology can enhance its core capabilities. That’s why a smart fridge that connects to your social media might seem like a terrible idea… but something like the 4T7 Smart Chopping Board actually makes sense. With functions and features that make meal prep much easier and more efficient, the 4T7 Smart Chopping Board helps with every stage of meal prep and beyond.

4T7 breaks down meal prep into its various components, adding good design and engineering wherever necessary. The board consists of 4 different parts, a main bamboo cutting board, a second antibacterial silver ion board for vegetables to avoid cross-contamination, a third thermally conductive thawing tray that helps in quick thawing of frozen food, and finally the 4T7 base, which has a has its own built-in scale. The only part of the 4T7 experience that exists outside of the actual board is its smartphone app, which counts calories as you weigh your ingredients. Once your prep work is done, the 4T7’s digital display can double as a kitchen timer, while the board itself becomes a magnetic knife holder.

All of the components of 4T7 are designed to be wonderfully functional as independent elements, but when they come together, the experience is greater than the sum of its parts. 4T7’s highlight, its chopping board, comes in either bamboo or walnut, both with water-resistant and mildew-resistant finishes and powerful magnets in the top-right corner that can hold your knife when you’re not cutting, dicing, and chopping. The board is equally suitable for fruit/vegetables as for meat. However, if you work with both vegetables and meat, a secondary board allows you to separate your foods by category to avoid cross-contamination, while the primary board lets you prep your meat, with a channel running along the perimeter of the board runs to collect blood/juices.

The 4T7’s second board gives you a perfect surface for chopping vegetables. Its silver ion coated surface is naturally antibacterial, and the board even has a textured patch in the bottom right corner that doubles as a built-in spice grinder, allowing you to grate garlic, crush cilantro, or grind some thyme without having to break it off any additional tools.

The digital scale and timer are made of toughened, waterproof glass that wipes clean.

At the same time, the thawing board ensures that your frozen food is quickly thawed and brought to room temperature so that you can continue working with it. The tray is made from a “special thermal material” and features continuous channels that increase airflow and cool your meat up to 6 times faster than if it were sitting outside at room temperature. The channels also collect water from the melting ice at the end, so your kitchen counter isn’t covered in water while you’re preparing a meal. The defrosting tray even serves as a baking pan and can be placed directly in the oven. Given the pan’s good thermal conductivity, the pan works wonderfully well at evenly distributing heat to cook your food to perfection.

The 47T’s piece of resistance, however, remains its “smart” scale, which is also linked to a companion smartphone app that lets you count calories for your food on the go. The scale features a seven-segment digital display on the bottom that lets you weigh grams, pounds, ounces, and even milliliters. The scale has an accuracy of 0.1 grams and can weigh up to 3 kilograms at a time.

Once you’re done prepping and ready to start cooking, the 4T7’s digital display can be configured to also function as a kitchen timer, with the ability to count down from a maximum of 99 minutes and 59 seconds.

The kitchen scales app from 4T7 turns the Smart into a Smart cutting board. Aside from simply preparing and weighing your ingredients, the app expands the functionality of the board by giving you a deeper insight into the foods you eat. Based on your recipe, its ingredients and their proportions, the kitchen scales app can provide you with a calorie breakdown of your meals and provide unique insights for people who want to see what (and how much) they are eating. The app also lets you explore recipe ideas, share advice, and support people on their meal prep journey by creating a “meal metaverse” where people come together as a cooking community. The app also allows users to submit their recipes and photos, creating an ever-growing ecosystem of kitchens for everyone to access and add.

What makes the 4T7 Smart Cutting Board clever is considering the entire cooking process. Rather than just being a simple chopping board, 4T7 becomes the epicenter of your food prep, allowing you to cut, measure, weigh, grind and defrost while also planning your cook and holding your knife while you’re done. The entire 7-in-1 jig is 17.3 inches wide and 11.2 inches long, allowing you to nest all 3 boards underneath each other to keep everything compact.

If you need even more space, the 4T7 has its own built-in backplate, allowing you to stand it at an angle – a feature that makes the magnetic knife holder even more impressive.

Each 4T7 is designed to be a rugged affair and to cope with the fast-paced cooking environment. The boards are inherently waterproof and mildew resistant, while the base itself is immune to splashes from water, sauce or oil – something that is standard in most domestic kitchens. The 4T7’s digital scale and timer runs on 4 AAA batteries, saving you one less charging cable in the kitchen, and it connects to the smartphone app via Bluetooth 4.0. At the moment the app is completely free and offers support in English and Chinese. Available for a limited super early bird price of $89, the 4T7 will begin shipping in May and carry a one-year warranty.
