EatSmart Kitchen Scale

March 12th, 2010

EatSmart Kitchen ScaleEver used one of those recipes that calls for 3 oz. of butter, or 5 grams of oregano? I am usually at a lost when the recipe gives me the measures in weight instead of volume.

With an EatSmart kitchen scale, my problems are solved!

Use it to measure ingredients

Recently my daughter made cupcakes with a recipe that calls for 6 ounces of sour cream. The container of sour cream we had was 8 ounces. We used the EatSmart kitchen scale to weigh out the 6 ounces. It was very easy to use. My daughter simply put an empty container on the scale, push the button and it zeros out. Then she add the sour cream until 6 oz. shows on the screen.

Use it for dieting

The EatSmart kitchen scale is an excellent tool to help you lose weight. I have a Bachelor’s degree in dietetics, and the first advice we give to dieters is to keep a food diary. Everyday and every meal, weigh out everything you eat on the scale and write it down. Merely taking the effort to do this will naturally and unconsciously keep you from putting too much on your plate.

Use it for portioning out food

The scale is also great for portion control as well. If you need to measure out a 4 oz. steak to make sure everyone gets the same amount, you can do it very easily. For bread recipes where you need to weigh out a pound of dough for a loaf, this scale comes in very handy.

Use it to determine postage

I also use the scale for weighing the mail for postage. If the letter is over an ounce, I know I would have to add an extra stamp. This has saved me a trip to the post office several times.

It’s easy to use

The scale only has two buttons, so you can’t go wrong. The button on the right gives the unit measure. You can choose from gram, kilogram, ounce, and pound. The maximum it can measure is 11 lbs., or 5 kg.  The button on the left zeros out, or tares the container.

The EatSmart kitchen scale is small, wipes clean easily, and packs away nicely when not in use. It requires 2 AAA batteries, which are even included! It’s not expensive, so I think it’s a pretty handy tool to have around the home.
