I'm always trying to cut calories any way I can to try to keep my weight down. It's hard to estimate how much you've eaten without measuring. Also, when I'm cooking you want to get the correct measurement of your ingredients without guessing. It makes recipes turn out a lot better, believe me! I've been there before... and had dishes that didn't turn out that great because I guessed at the measurements. Well, I've found a great little scale that will help me with this problem,
The Ozeri Ultra Thin Kitchen Scale is an accurate and very thin scale that is less than half an inch thick. It comes with 2 lithium batteries which is nice so you don't have to go out and purchase batteries right away.
I love the look of the scale! It's a beauty and has a stainless steel top that is sleek and modern looking. To clean all you do is wipe it with a damp cloth. This kitchen scale weighs anything from 0.1 oz to 11 lbs so it can be used for a wide weight capacity. If you exceed the weight capacity of the scale the overload indicator will display "EEEE" on the large LCD screen.
The Ozeri Scale is very easy to operate and you can measure in pounds, grams and ounces. To use first you have to remove the battery strip on the back of the scale. Make sure to place your scale on a firm and flat surface and turn it on by pressing the on/off/tare button. You then select the unit of measurement you desire and your ready to go. Yes, it's so easy that even I can do it!
A super nice plus about this scale is the tare feature. If you want to weigh something in a container such as a bowl or plate it calculates the weight of your ingredients by subtracting the container weight. This would be great for measuring flour, sugar and the like. I'm sure any baker or chef would really be delighted with this scale. If could also be used for weighing items for shipping if you need to know the weight for postage labels.
I am highly satisfied with my new Ozeri Ultra Thin Professional Digital Kitchen Food and Nutrition Scale. If you are interested in one for yourself or someone you know this item may be found on Amazon for only $35.93.
