Cook Smart with Eat Smart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale
If you love to cook like I do, especially baking, then you know how important having the exact measurements of ingredients can be. This also holds true for those on a diet who want to measure out the correct portions needed and count calories. EatSmart offers the ideal scale for this, their Eat Smart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale. I was sent one for review, and cannot believe how quickly I have come to rely on it.
EatSmart has been designing and producing household products for many years. They offer a variety of kitchen scales, bathroom scales and luggage scales, all with the latest advances in technology. All of their products are covered by warranty and come with the EatSmart 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed promise. They also donate a portion of their proceeds to a different charity each month. You can see a full list of the products they offer on their website.
The EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale I was sent to review has all of the important features one should look for when selecting a kitchen scale. It has the four separate units of measurement that are read in decimals: ounces, grams, kilograms and pounds, with a maximum capacity of 11 pounds. You can easily switch between the units of measurement with the push of a single button. The digital kitchen scale (aff. link) also has a tare button which allows you to eliminate the weight of the bowl or plate. The LCD display is large and very easy to read, and it’s weighing platform is large enough for most of your conventional kitchen needs. I will say however, if you are planning on measuring large bowls, molds or other larger-sized items, you may want to find a larger scale, as I can see how larger dishes could block your view of the display. As far as sturdiness, the plastic body and its light weight gives the impression that it is not as sturdy as some scales, but I have had no problems. It does have no-slip grips on the bottom which prevent it from sliding around, and its small size and light weight make storage a cinch! It also has a three-minute auto shut-off so you won’t run down the batteries while mixing ingredients or if you forget to turn it off.
I have found that this scale works quite well for all my needs when it comes to cooking for my family and controlling my portion sizes. A huge bonus is that this scale comes with a calorie counting book that teaches you how to calculate the amount of calories in many foods, providing another very useful tool for those concerned with their diet.
The EatSmart Precision Pro is very affordable, and is available in white, red, silver, black with chrome and white with chrome. It uses two (2) AAA batteries which are included, and also comes with a two (2) year warranty as well as the Eat Smart 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. You can find the scale at many retailers, as well as online through Amazon.
