Big Apple Buddy only sources from official retailers to ensure your item is genuine and authentic. This item is sourced from Best Buy.
Dilute thick and dense foods, brightly-colored foods, or dry and powdery foods 1:1 with water, and ensure your sample size is approximately 0.3g or the size of a pea.
Use clean hands to twist off the top of a new capsule, place a pea-size amount of food into the capsule, and then fully close the top with a click. Twist the top until the colored ring vanishes and the edge is aligned with the side.
If you see a smile icon, no peanut protein has been detected. If a plant icon and the words Peanut Found show up, you'll know to avoid the food. An error may also appear if there is an issue with the sample size or capsule.
Detects if 10 ppm peanut traces are present. Then, the sensor can display the results.
The battery can perform around 40 tests, or live for three months when it's not in use. Use a USB 1.0 or 2.0 micro charger to recharge.
Use caution with peanut oil
Test peanut oil or dishes that may be cooked in peanut oil. Peanut oil is refined enough that the peanut protein is broken down. It should not affect people with peanut allergies, but if there is peanut remaining Nima may detect it.
Use caution with chocolate
You can test melted chocolate, chocolate mousse and chocolate powder with the Nima Peanut Sensor. Solid chocolate in blocks or chips should not be tested.
This Use Caution list may change as Nima is developed and updated.
Please register your Nima so we can quickly and easily notify you of any updates.
WARNING: Failure to use this product in accordance with the instructions could result in serious injury or death
Please use your best judgement when choosing what to consume.
Based on internal lab testing, the Nima Peanut Sensor may incorrectly show a ‘Peanut Found’ message when testing foods containing sesame, tamarind, tomato paste or sauce, eggplant, cayenne, paprika or NOS Energy Drink.
Anytime you get a Peanut Found result, we always recommend that you do not consume the dish.
The Do Not Test list may change as Nima is developed and updated. Please review this list of tested foods and testing recommendations from Nima's Research & Development team for more details.
Based on internal lab testing, the Nima Peanut Sensor may incorrectly show a smile message when testing foods containing alcohol or solid chocolate like bars, uncooked chips, etc. If the chocolate is in a different form (softened, melted) and ground prior to testing, Nima can test it.
Nima is intended to give you an additional data point and level of comfort when eating but is not a guarantee as it only provides a result for the sample being tested.
It is still your responsibility to let waitstaff know your needs, ask friends to prepare peanut free meals, purchase items that are clearly peanut free and advocate for yourself. Whether or not you wish to eat something will be up to you.
