Being signed in to your Brava has many benefits. Most importantly, it allows you to activate your free 2 year Brava Plus membership that is included with the purchase. By having the membership activated, you get access to discounted membership prices on the Brava Marketplace, updates, new features and recipes that you do not want to miss! You'll also have the ability to watch your cooks live on your mobile device and send favorited recipes from the Brava app to your Brava.
Pro Tip: The Brava needs to be connected to WiFi to receive software updates which grant you access to more Ingredients, Combos, and Recipes as they're released.
