This little guy is such fun & comes in so handy that I just had to share! I have been looking for a food scale for a while, and I didn’t want anything bulky, mechanical or “cheap”… I just wanted to be able to tell how much my food weighs, or be able to measure out my recipes without much fuss. I found everything and more in this little and adorable scale! When I first got it, I couldn’t stop measuring EVERYTHING! Did you know an almond is 1gram? A peanut is a bit more? 2.5 peanuts (on average) make 3 grams. I still keep measuring food just for the fun of it.
I also find it to be a very helpful tool for my clients. We are so used to oversized portions that we have a distorted view of what a portion of something really should look like… It becomes eye opening for many (myself included) to see what an ounce of cheese looks like, or a proper serving of meat. We’ve been eating double or triple that thinking that that’s what constitutes a “portion”. Also, I use this scale when tracking daily food intake or logging Carbs. I really can’t tell you how many strawberries constitute a “cup”, but the EatSmart Precision PRO scale can tell me precisely in grams or ounces.
Now… onto the coolest feature of all – listen up, bakers! You know those recipes that give you ingredients to combine by ounce or grams? I used to hate cleaning a whole bunch of measuring cups. This scale totally takes care of all that. Just set a bowl on top and go! This scale can be re-calibrated to zero after each ingredient. When I’m done cooking or playing, I just put it away in my pantry. It’s super light and barely takes up any space at all.
I’ve been having such a good time with this little guy, I just wanted to pass the info along Check it out here, they also have nice color options (I should have gone with the red now that I think of it… oh well)
Happy scaling & let me know what you think!
