We’re not big into gadgets for just gadget’s sake. We like equipment that helps us cook quicker, faster, tastier and healthier in the kitchen. Not totally clutter up counter space with something you’re only going to use once a month. You feel us?
That said, a good digital food scale is not — we repeat NOT — your typical cooking gadget. If you invest in a good digital food scale, it will become your healthy cooking BFF. And we know because we’ve been using one for years and can’t image our cooking life without one!
But don’t take our word for it. Here are five reasons why you need a good digital food scale in your kitchen — followed by our pick for the best one out there!
5 Reasons Why You Need a Good Digital Food Scale
1. It’s the most accurate way to cook and bake. Whether you’re whipping up a recipe that calls for different units of measurement or you simply aren’t sure how much of something you have, a good digital food scale is essential for the home cook!
2. It’s perfect for creating new recipes. If you’ve ever tried to make a recipe one day and then tried to do it again and it’s totally off — even though you swear you put the same amount of ingredients in the second time — a digital food scale could help. When it comes to creating new recipes, it allows you to get precise on the ingredients, which is essential for making sauces, cookies, cakes and the like that always taste and look good!
3. It’s ideal for portion control. Ever wondered if that apple you’re eating is the typical one-serving size? Or if you’re eyeballing that 1-ounce serving of tortilla chips right? A good digital food scale will so do that.
4. It’s high-tech and totally awesome. We all like to get creative in the kitchen and hearken back to our grandmother’s good ol’ cooking days, but let’s face it: digital food scales are sleek, high-tech and pretty awesome!
5. Knowledge is power! There’s no reason to weigh everything you eat by any means, but having a good digital food scale really can teach you a lot about food. After using it for awhile, you’ll develop a much keener sense of the true weight and size of ingredients!
6 Reasons Why We Love the Procizion Touch Digital Food Kitchen Scale
1. It’s the perfect size with high quality. The Procizion Touch Digital Food Kitchen Scale is not too big yet not too small. It also features a large LCD screen that displays weights in pounds, kilograms, grams, and ounces in an easy-to-read way!
2. Looks nice in the kitchen. This sturdy digital food scale has a thin and sleek profile making it great for the kitchen, while still having a surface that is super strong. It boasts a tempered-glass surface that’s four times stronger than normal glass! Now that’s sexy for a digital food scale.
3. It’s accurate. You can always count on Procizion Touch Digital Food Kitchen Scale to be right. Equipped with four high-precision GFX sensors, the Procizion Touch Digital Food Kitchen Scale provides accurate measurements from 0.1 ounces to 11 pounds. And — bonus! —- this super accurate food scale also doubles up as a postal scale that weighs letters, envelopes and packages up to 11 pounds!
4. It has all the bells and whistles but is still easy to use. One of our favorite features is the one-touch unit and tare buttons that automatically subtract the container weight to calculate the weight of the ingredients being weighed. This allows for a super quick change of unit measurement and zeroing-out the container when you’re cooking and baking.
5. It has a long battery life. You may think this feature isn’t that big of a deal, but you’d be wrong. There is nothing more annoying than getting your cook on and being in the middle of food prep when your digital food scale goes out. This is why we love that the Procizion Touch Digital Food Kitchen Scale includes two AAA batteries for longer battery life. (A lot of other models use CR-2032 lithium batteries, which tend to have a much shorter life and are very expensive to replace.) Plus, this scale has a one-minute auto-off function that conserves battery life and saves energy!
6. There’s an 100-percent guarantee! You can’t go wrong when there’s an 100-percent money-back guarantee! Procizion stands behind all of its products, so if you are not totally satisfied with your Procizion Food Kitchen Scale, simply return it for a full money-back guarantee.
