Food waste costs the average American approximately $1,800 every year. This is a direct result of poor planning and low confidence in home kitchens. Ripe fights food waste by using AI to help users explore new recipes, plan their meals, and gain confidence in the kitchen. Ripe has five main modules -- dashboard, schedule, pantry, groceries, and cooking -- available on mobile devices. The cooking module uniquely integrates with Alexa devices, including both sound-only devices like the Echo and visual devices like the Alexa Kitchen, to guide the user in real-time through the cooking experience.
