I buy my meat in bulk when it’s on sale. I take it home and break it down into smaller packages and freeze it. It saves time and money by having food I need in the freezer, and not having to shop every week for certain items. I break meat into one pound packages, an amount frequently called for when cooking for my family. I am terrible at estimating sizes and weights, so I weigh everything before storing it in the freezer. I’ve had a scale in my kitchen for years but it was very difficult to work with, which is why I was happy to have the opportunity to review an EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale.

I’ve found the EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Scale to be very helpful, and much easier to use than my last scale. My last scale didn’t even always reister at 0 with nothing on it, so weighing things was always a little hit or miss. It had a rectangular basket that sat on top of the scale, and you had to put anything you wanted to weigh in there. If what you wanted to weight was shaped differently it wouldn’t always fit well and that would make things unbalanced, which in turn made the weight off. The EatSmart scale is great because it’s flat and you just sit whatever you want to weight on top of the scale. It doesn’t get much easier than that. Plus, the EatSmart scale is smaller (dimensions: 8″ x 6″ x 1.5″), looks much nicer and is much easier to keep clean.

The scale is easy to use, just put whatever you want to weigh on top of the scale and you’ll see a reading with the weight of the item. The scale calibrates itself and can weight items up to 11 pounds. The scale has four measurement modes available to choose from – grams, ounces, kilograms and pounds. There’s nothing complicated, there are only two buttons on the scale. There are two features that I really like about this scale. The first is that it turns itself off after three minutes. No need to worry about putting something down and stopping the creative process just to conserve battery power. I also love the tare Feature, which allows you t o subtract the weight of the plate or container that your item is on.

They’re a great tool to have, not just for food but for weighing mail to know how much postage or shipping will cost.

Thanks for the review, I looked at these, but wasn’t sure if they were worth it. I do buy in bulk and kind of guess what I put in each seal a meal bag.. I think weighing will be more accurate and I never thought of weighing the postage, great idea.!

Great article. We use our digital scale all the time but it doesn’t do the calorie counter.
