SmartShopper - Kitchen Gadget to Record & Print Your Lists


smartshopper-kitchen gadget If you are like my husband, 9 times out of 10 you'll forget an item or two from the grocery list that you "memorized" before going to the store, simply because you were too lazy to write it down! I have spent days wishing there was an automatic grocery list generator so I could record my list of items (yes, record it, not write it!!), then print it out and hand it to him so he doesn't miss anything on the list; well, looks like God (a.k.a technology) just answered my prayers!! The SmartShopper, an electronic Grocery List Organizer that is voice-activated, and comes with a built-in printer is the coolest kitchen gadget I've found this week!! "Say it, Print it, and Go Get it!!" This tiny kitchen contraption is so cute and efficient that there's no way you can stop yourself from falling in love with it!

Smartshopper is an easy-to-use electronic kitchen gadget that helps you create your grocery list, without having to write it down on a piece of paper that you'd find hard to locate when you actually head out to the store! Smartshopper uses Nuance's state-of-the-art voice recognition technology to record your voice, and keeps adding your items or commands to the list stored in its memory. When it's time to head to the store, press the print button and the embedded thermal printer will print out your list for you. Best of all the printed list is categorized by grocery departments such as "frozen foods" or "produce". This will help you find what you need in each department or aisle easier, therefore making your shopping experience faster and more efficient.

Its intuitive interface is fun to use and easy to master. Just push the record button, say the name of the item you want to add to the list, and it shows up on the LCD screen for your confirmation. keep recording items till you like; and you don't have to finish the list at the same time! It will store it in memory, and update it as you add more items. There are already over 2,500 items in SmartShopper's database, and it can even learn new items tailored to your lifestyle. With a large (2.25 x 1.25) LCD display screen, it shows the items you have already entered in a 9-point font size, and categorized in alphabetical order.

SmartShopper is also an excellent way to keep track of your errands! Just record your list of "To-Do" things and print it out to better organize your day and complete your tasks efficiently. Of course, my husband would prefer to use the iPhone for this, but I guess I can settle for the Smartshopper:)

It is made out of durable hard plastic with a brushed aluminum front. Operating on 4 AA batteries, the printer uses uses thermal paper that is ink-free, which means you don't have to worry about replacing messy ink cartridges. SmartShopper also has built-in magnets so you can stick it to your refrigerator, right beside your family message-board, and also comes with hardware to mount on a wall if needed. A Quick-Start guide, warranty sheet, and 3 rolls of thermal paper are included in the package. Priced at $150, it is not a bad investment, especially if it makes your life more efficient and stress-free!

Fun gizmo! I *always* leave my shopping list at home and wind up cruising the aisles to trip my memory. Works every time, but this is energy better spent elsewhere, like in the kitchen. : )

What a great gadget!!! I also lose my lists sometimes...

I thought I wanted one of these, but then I realized that even with everything carefull written down, I forget things. The only way I ever get everything on the list is if I have a pen with me and check everything off as it goes in the cart. Usually it's something important that I desperately need that I end up forgetting (like toilet paper!)

Great review! Sounds like a cool gadget, but I"m also one who still walks out of the store and forgets items, even with a list! I need an electronic gadget with a list that will beep if I line up at the checkout counter and have forgotten something! : )
