Drop Kitchen

Drop is the leading smart kitchen platform specializing in recipe and kitchen appliance technology to connect the whole cooking journey.

Drop is the platform where appliance brands, publishers and grocers come together to inspire and guide everyday cooks at home.

Drop was co-founded in 2012 by Ben Harris, Jack Phelan, Jonny McCauley, and Tim Redfern. The company is headquartered in Dublin, Ireland and San Francisco, California, with an office in Zaragoza, Spain.

Drop is the world’s first customer platform empowering anyone to make food more, at home.

Drop has created a platform that enables home cooks and bakers to connect their favourite recipes with smart appliances in their kitchens. Once users connect their smart appliances to their Drop profile, the platform will adjust the recipes based on the owned appliances.


Drop is building the one app that orchestrates all smart kitchen appliances and delivering the full stack IoT (internet of things) platform under the hood for the appliances to work seamlessly in that world. The company partners with multiple appliance makers, including Bosch, Kenwood, GE Appliances, and Electrolux.


Drop Kitchen is backed by Alpha Edison, Alsop Louie Partners, Richmond Market Ventures, Morpheus Ventures, Act Venture Capital and others. The company raised $13.3M in Series A round on June 09, 2020. This brings Drop's total funding to $24.9M to date.
