If you're having a tough time getting consistent recipes, you should try weighing out each ingredient with this Salter kitchen scale. When ya weigh what you're putting into your mixes, you have a better chance of your recipes coming out the same each time. And the best part is...no more measuring cups! Just weigh your ingredient, set the scale back to zero, and weigh the next! This kitchen scale can handle up to twenty two pounds of ingredients.
The Salter 074 has a chrome plated plastic body that looks great and is super lightweight.
This diet scale has a handy little tare knob on the back that let's ya set the scale's dial back to zero after putting something on the scale. This is great for using the included weighing bowl, or if ya want to get separate weights of different items.
Doesn't it get on your nerves when one recipe calls for ingredients in grams and the next recipe calls for ingredients in ounces? Well with this food scale, that won't be a problem. The dual reading dial on the Salter 074 displays your weights in both grams and ounces simultaneously...you'll never have to worry about switching back and forth between units again.
Salter provides a ten year warranty on every scale they make. So, if ya have a problem with your scale, just send it to the Salter warranty center. They'll fix it or replace it, and send it right back.
I bought this to replace a 5 pounder which I misplaced. I really like the ease for measuring stuff that doesn't require accuracy to the oz or gram. It's nice to be able to get an accurate reading for something which is 5 pounds or more without multiple measurements. The only downside is the tare knob. It's located under the weighing pan and is a little harder to reach for setting. Overall--good, sturdy, easy to use, well worth the money scale.
