Digital food scales are an important help when cooking and baking
100 grams of flour, 50 grams of sugar and 30 grams of butter: Recipes often give very precise weights. You should stick to these as meticulously as possible, as even small deviations can influence the end result. With food scales you can weigh your ingredients precisely to the gram. What other functions electronic scales have you’ll find out in the following overview.
Which functions should digital food scales have?
Analogue scales from grandmother’s time were only intended for weighing ingredients. Modern, digital household scales today have a significantly wider range of functions that considerably simplify cooking and baking for you.
Grams or ounces
Do you like international cooking? Then you find out that these recipes frequently give weights in ounces instead of grams. Good household scales can simply be switched over and their digital display shows the weight in the right unit.
On an LCD display the weights are shown substantially more accurately than when you read them off an analog display.
The tare function is one of the most essential features of your kitchen scales. You can now weigh your bowl and save it by touch. Now, when there is flour or sugar in the bowl, the weight of the bowl will be automatically deducted. So you no longer need to calculate, to measure your ingredients correctly.
How much can I weigh on food scales?
With a good set of household scales you can weigh amounts up to 10 kilograms.
What exactly are food scales?
