I am a bit of a food nut. I love trying out new recipes and testing the latest and greatest kitchen equipment. I just had a chance to try Kitchen Guru’s glass top digital food scale. The scale is available in 3 colors: black, red and silver and can be bought from Kitchen Gurus on Amazon.
A kitchen scale is a really great tool to have on hand, especially if you do a lot of baking or are trying to stick to certain portion sizes for dieting purposes. Professional bakers often use weight measurements for accurate recipe creation. You can view a video on Weight vs Volume Measurement on the Joy of Baking website. Professional bakers recommend weighing both your liquid and dry ingredients for the best, most accurate results.
How to Use a Kitchen Scale
I use a large stainless steel bowl when measuring out the dry ingredients in a recipe I’m making. I place the bowl on the kitchen scale, turn it on and let it set itself to zero. You can then start measuring out and weighing each of your dry ingredients. The Kitchen Gurus food scale can measure dry ingredients in either pounds or kilograms and liquid ingredients in either ounces or grams.
I find this scale really helpful as every so often I find recipes online from a UK website. In fact, most of the world uses metric measurements, vs imperial measurements that are used in the United States. So unless you are using a USA or Australian cookbook, you are going to have to follow the metric system of cooking measurements.
The Cooking Nook website has a great page on Cooking Measurement Conversions.
