So how does this Alexa-powered food summoner actually perform? For the most part, pretty well. There are two ways to get food into your Amazon cart. You can scan it by pointing the Dash at a barcode, holding down its one button, and then releasing it when you hear a bloop. You can also simply tell Alexa what you want her to add. Of the two, scanning proved to be the most accurate and reliable. The Dash adds produce and other perishables to your AmazonFresh cart (AmazonFresh is an extra $15/month for Prime subscribers, but you get a month free), while other, non-food items are added to your standard check out cart. One nice thing about the Dash is that it's smart enough to not repeatedly add the same thing to your check out cart if you bungle the scan. It's not always clear when the Dash has successfully recognized something so this is a nice touch.
