No kitchen is complete without a good kitchen scale. I’ve personally been looking for one for several years now. Why so long? Well, I first wasn’t sure what kind of scale I exaclty wanted and second because a lot of kitchen scales are usually space hogs and due to living in a small home I don’t want to over clutter the place.
I do a lot of baking and cooking and I know that having a good scale can make all the difference when trying to be a little more accurate when it’s called for. Other reasons are because I know scales are great for nutritional needs. Needs like counting calories and portion control.
I was pretty excited recently when I was contacted to review a Eat Smart digital Kitchen Scale! This scale comes in numerous colors but I went with the burgundy red because it matches all my other kitchen appliances perfectly.
I’m pretty impressed that there is a lot of big packed into this compact sized kitchen scale! For instance this scale is extremely easy to use. This scale comes with 2 AAA batteries and also has a three minute auto-shut off feature to maintain the battery life.
There are two buttons one for on/off and tare. Now if you don’t know what tare means, basically it’s a feature that eliminates the weight of a plate or whatever else you may be weighing something in so you can get a precise measurement of your ingredients. And the other button on the scale is “unit” where you can messure four different units: grams / ounces / pounds / kilograms.
Included with this scale is a EatSmart Calorie Factors guide which makes Portion control and calorie counting super easy to figure out!
Eat Smart is donating 100% of their Amazon proceeds to a different charity each month in 2011. Each month the charity is chosen through voting by fans. How about supporting a company that is giving back? The scale is a great price at Amazon for $25.00 & this item ships for FREE with Super Saver Shipping. And a good idea if you are looking for something for mom for mother’s day!
