With just the tap of a finger and a little help from WiFi, Amazon’s Dash Button could be the first step in the weekly grocery list’s obsolescence.

The button looks like a doorbell, comes labeled with familiar logos of household goods, and places an order for that particular brand of good with just a press of the button. Run out of paper towels or laundry soap? Just push the button.

The Dash Button connects to your home or office WiFi and uses your Amazon Prime account to make the purchase from AmazonFresh, the company’s grocery arm.

The button itself comes with a hook or self-adhesive backing for easy installation where needed most.

The device also comes in a more versatile option known as Dash. Dash can scan barcodes of items the user wants to order or use speech recognition to order a dictated grocery list.

Both Dash and Dash Button are currently available to Amazon Prime subscribers.
