Kitchen scales


I use a kitchen scale to measure when I am not certain of conversions in recipes i.e. ml to oz etc...
We see so many new models of kitchen scales in the market, which makes it hard to choose one. Here is a review of a kitchen scale I got to experiment with.

Ozeri touch professional digital scale 17.6 lb edition looks gorgeous on the counter because of it sleek design similar to an iPad. The touch button displays lbs, kg, g, oz and ml on its easy to read LCD screen. It measures up to 17.6 lbs. The reflective black surface is made with tempered glass is four times stronger than regular glass.


It is easy to clean and has an auto turn off. The scale is light in weight, which makes it portable. The Ozeri touch professional digital scale 17.6 lb edition comes with a booklet that shows calories of ingredients. The scale is pretty accurate as I measured many things. I found that sometimes we need a little bit of patience to figure it out, as it is sensitive.

The tare feature on it calculates net weight of the ingredients by subtracting the weight of the container. It comes with 2 lithium batteries, so the scale can be used as soon as it is bought.

If you are interested in this scale it is sold on Amazon.
What type of scale do you use, if you don't then how do you measure?

  5. I use this scale and whilst I love it most of the time, sometimes the buttons are a little tricky to use. Sometimes they don't work, no matter how hard I try and sometimes they seem to turn on a totally different feature. It takes a bit of patience but I love it enough that I put in the time. Plus, maybe mine is just a bit quirky and the rest are fine!

  6. I use one with a bowl. I like the look of this one but it would not be practical for me.

  16. I have always used scales, they come in very handy. I had a Pampered Chef scale for years but accidently broke it. But I see them at garage sales where I got one for one dollar.

  18. I’ve got a scale this Christmas from one of my sisters. And last Saturday I used it for the very first time. It’s indeed very very sensitive, but I love it. Wish I had one earlier. It’s from Soehnle and make of stainless steal.

  19. I don't use mine as often as I should. :(

  20. I convert grams into cups using formula or calculate based on basic conversions that I have, for example:
    1/4 cup = 4 Tbsp = 2 oz = 56.7 gm

    I'd like to get a kitchen scale too. Thought I haven't done any research on it, I'd like one that's a little bigger than this.. :)
