SmartPlate white trays are BPA/BPS free, non-stick, heat resistant, and microwave and dishwasher safe.

However, the electronic base should NEVER be put in the microwave!

What if I am eating out?

SmartPlate app comes with the recognition technology on-the-go. While the app alone can never deliver the same precision analysis available by pairing with the data collected by the SmartPlate countertop device, it will make tracking a breeze with one-snap access and predictive searching of the same expansive database of foods.

Just open the SmartPlate® app, snap a picture of your meal, and adjust the portion size if needed. The SmartPlate® app also lets you scan product barcodes that tie into a barcode database of more than 1,000,000 packaged foods and beverages.

How does SmartPlate® work?

SmartPlate® lets you track the way you eat.In contrast to a cumbersome food-scale-and-log system that requires a user to weigh a meal’s food items individually and then enter each weight into a tracking application to get nutrition values, SmartPlate® allows you to instantly analyze and track up to three separate food items – a complete meal! – at once.

Just load the microwave safe plate with your favorite food items, snap a photo with your phone, and get all your nutrition information instantly.

SmartPlate® will accurately identify, analyze, and track your entire meal, giving you a level of accuracy and convenience that has never been possible before.

How does the SmartPlate® App work?

The SmartPlate app allows a user to select one of three goal-specific programs (or create a custom plan). The countertop device pairs with the app for precision image recognition, analysis, and tracking of macro and micronutrients, access a database of hundreds of thousands of packaged and restaurant items for tracking on-the-go, and get helpful tips and feedback to stay on track.

How does instant food recognition work?

Our algorithms leverage Artificial Intelligence to bring you the most accurate food detector on the market. Say goodbye to manual calorie counting apps that are tedious, frustrating, and inaccurate!

How does SmartPlate® work with mixed foods?

Our algorithms are trained to read things like mixed salads, rice pilaf, and spaghetti with sauce and meatballs. In fact, SmartPlate® already knows the difference between similar items like white rice and brown rice, and it will get smarter over time as more people use the technology.

If it’s uncertain what it’s seeing, the AI will make an educated guess and give you options to select from.

If SmartPlate® doesn’t recognize your food, you can select ‘See More Results’ in the application that searches a database of over 1,500 foods, or scan the product barcode to search over 1,000,000+ foods!
