For times that I need to measure something on a plate or in a bowl, there's the tare function which is also very easy to use. It allows me to autmoatically return the scale to zero at any time, enableing you to subtract the weight of an item (like a plate) or weight multiple items in a row. For instance, I measured a bowl like I normally would. Then, pressed the on/off/tare button. This reset the weight to zero. I then added the next ingredient to the bowl and weighed it. It was so simple, and accurate!
As I said, aside from cooking I also like to use the Precision Elite Kitchen Scale to help me keep track of portion sizes and start living a healthier lifestyle. Thanks to the scale and the helpful EatSmart Calorie Factors book included have made it easy for me to do just that! Everything from fruit, to breads, to snacks...I use it to help me count calories.
When it comes to sweets, I especially like to count my calories and make sure I'm not consuming too much. I have used this scale several times to weight things like cookies so I know how many calories I'm eating.
I'm extremely happy with the EatSmart Precision Elite Digital Kitchen Scale! I would highly recommend it others and as a Christmas gift this year.
