EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale {Review and Giveaway}

Oh wow, I am so excited about this one! I am a total foodie and spent some time taking cooking classes in college. I learned a lot from those classes and started making some amazing meals at home. But the number one thing I missed from the completely professional, commercial kitchen we were using at my college was the scales. Most people that I’ve met don’t bother using scales in their homes, but there’s a lot to be said about having one in your kitchen. And this one is super easy to use, is completely digital and comes with a calorie counting guide as well, which can be very helpful in measuring out portion control sizes.

Here’s the scale:It has two buttons, one for turning it on or off or taring (resetting) the weight and one to switch between grams, pounds, ounces and kilograms.  It can measure up to 11 pounds, which is amazing since it’s so compact!  I know lots of people (like Midgetmomma!) have no idea what you would even do with a scale in their kitchen.  My favorite thing to have it for honestly is to make my sauces.  I’m excellent at making gravies and sauces, but it took a lot of bad batches to finally learn the secret to an amazing sauce.   It is all in the roux, which needs to be equal parts stiffener (usually flour) and fat (usually butter) by weight. This is the key, because if you just measure two tablespoons of butter and two tablespoons of flour, your sauce is going to be very runny.  I’ve been having trouble making some of the sauces I made in class at home simply because i didn’t have a scale.  Other great uses are measuring out portions (it’s hard to measure out 6 ounces of meat that your diet tells you you need without a scale!) or measuring baking ingredients.  I’ve come across lots of baking recipes that use weight amounts for things like flour and sugar, that doesn’t translate well to a cup amount.  Technically, you can use cups, but since baking is a more exact science, you may run into some rock hard brownies that way (I know I did!).  This scale is so much more simple and basic then the ones we used in our commercial kitchen, which is perfect because I just wanted something that would fit easily on my counter, look nice, and works.  Its also a lot more affordable!  When this first arrived, my husband didn’t understand why I even wanted one, but I got him to use it to make biscuits and gravy one night (so I wouldn’t have to make it).  I usually eye the ingredients, but since we have the scale now, I can tell him exactly how much to add and there’s no chance for an oops that ends up being thrown away!  I love having the EatSmart in my kitchen and now a lucky Luxury living reader will get to have one too!

    being from germany I am still uncertain of some measurements ounces compared to grams. I have a chart with the breakdown of some numbers but some recipes count for some odds
