saving food is not just beneficial for our household budget but also hugely helpful for our planet. the ‘foodee‘ app can give users the information of foods that will expire soon once a day and also recommends some recipes that can utilise the expiring ingredients. once they choose their recipes and select the number of people to serve, the smart kitchen scale will then guide them how to cook with exact portions of ingredients step by step. people can check their inventories when they are away from home and their spouses can share or modify the inventory as well. ‘foodee’ also recommends shopping lists to the users according to their purchase history. the ‘foodee’ scanner helps people to use their food in time and ‘foodee’ scale helps them to prepare perfect meal with proper portion and not to cook too much.

people can scan just several expiration date sensitive foods or they can scan every food they buy. the more information ‘foodee’ has, the more suitable recipes and shopping lists it can provide. there are preset average shelf spans for each type of food in ‘fridge pal’ app, but if users want to change the span or input the exact expiration date, of course they can do that. there is an ‘opened’ button on the scanner so people can just press the button when they scan it again for putting it back then the preset shorter span will be applied for the opened items.
