William from Eat Smart products contacted me in December about reviewing the recently updated and improved Precision Pro Kitchen Scale. And 2 months later, I am finally getting around to it!
I have a scale that I used fairly often for cooking – the difference between 4 and 5 ounces of flour can make a big difference in baked goods. One of my cookie recipes calls for the dough to be divided in half, which a scale also comes in handy. And, some of my European-style cookbooks often call for weights alone in the recipes.
Out of the box, the Precision Pro is easy to set up – the scale comes with batteries, so I did not need to hunt through the junk drawer to get started. And it sits nicely on the counter, with 5 rubber feet. It is lightweight, not too annoying to bring in and out of your cupboard when you need to weigh something.
Some of the new features include a 3 minute auto-turnoff, which I found very handy, as I usually take a while to measure my ingredients and my current scale will sometimes shut off in the middle. I also liked that the buttons to change the unit of measurement and the tare (setting your bowl to zero) were on the top. The scale table was far enough away from the buttons that I could use one of my big mixing bowls and still see the data.
The only complaint I had about this scale was that it is too accurate. It calculates to the thousandth place (three places beyond the decimal point) a level of accuracy I rarely need in my home cooking. This feature would probably come in handy for anyone on a special diet or needing precise measurements of their food.
The Precision Pro Kitchen Scale retails from $24.95 – $26.95, and at that price, would be a worthwhile investment and useful kitchen gadget to have around.
