Gift Guide Age Recommendation: 18+
I have been a kitchen scale user for quite some time. I’ve gone through two of them over the past 5 years (One met its unfortunate end by getting too close to a stove burner that I thought was cool…. It wasn’t and plastic kitchen scales will melt). I really like kitchen scales for all that they can do and the EatSmart Precision Pro is no exception. The Precision Pro is very versatile. It can measure in pounds, ounces, grams and kilograms. It has a tare feature that allows you to subtract the weight of any plate or container or reset to zero to add a second ingredient to your bowl. And, at only 13 ounces, the Precision Pro is lightweight and very compact. Don’t be fooled though, this scale is no lightweight (pun intended); it can weigh up to 11 pounds.
I use kitchen scales a lot while baking. I have found that weighing ingredients yields more consistent products than measuring by volume. And, a lot of my more “professional” cookbooks (and every European cookbook I own) give me the measurements by weight. I also use my scale to help reduce the mess of cooking. I have found that measuring everything into one bowl (and using the tare button to reset the scale between ingredients) has eliminated a lot of dirty spoons and cups.
I’m also a huge fan of using my kitchen scale as part of my “buy bulk to stay on budget” process. Every month my husband and I make a trip to our local wholesale club and buy meat, produce, grains and other grocery related bulk purchases. Then, when I get home, I use my scale to divide our purchases into useable sizes. I know that every package of ground beef in my freezer is 1 pound and that each package of chicken is 1.5 pounds.
This scale is very helpful at staying on a diet. This scale makes it very easy to measure out exact portion sizes. I am easily able to measure out 6 ounces of chicken or 56 grams of pasta. So, when I prepare a meal for myself. I know exactly how many calories I am consuming.
I recommend this Precision Pro scale as a gift for every baker, home chef or dieter in your circle of friends or family.
Four beautiful color and finish choices!
