EatSmart Digital Kitchen Scale

EatSmart Digital Scale - Addicted to Recipes
Recently, I was given the opportunity to test an EatSmart Digital Scale.  I've never had a digital scale in my kitchen before, and was intrigued about testing one.  When it first arrived, I wasn't really sure what I was going to use it for, but then I just started to use it, trying it for this and that.  And I fell in love.  With a scale.  Seriously.  

When following a recipe and it calls for "2 lbs of xyz"... I never really knew how much "2 lbs of xyz" really was.  I live in a kg world.  So I just winged it.  Most of the time, winging it turned out alright, but sometimes, not so much.   But now that I have this scale, when my recipe calls for 2 lbs of ground beef and I have a package from the store labelled in kg or I pull a package out of the freezer that was divided up from our Costco run and I have no idea the weight...I now have an easy easy easy way to get my answer.  Makes me very happy!

I am also loving the conversions.  Geeky me just likes to press the buttons and see all the different measurements.  Yes, I do that...measure out what I need in the measurement I need, and then push the button ("I wonder what it is in grams...I wonder what it is in pounds...").  Even my husband is in on the fun, just today he said, "I was using your scale when I made breakfast today!".  

I can see how folks who follow specific diets would find the EatSmart scale useful.  It is such a handy way to keep track of your food.  It's not too big - doesn't take up a lot of counter space, and would easily slip into a drawer (if you are like me and not a fan of having lots of stuff out on the counter).

This scale is SO easy to use.  There are only 2 buttons, hard to mess up!  And the digital display is clear and easy to read.  

If you are in the market for a kitchen scale, I would encourage you to check out the EatSmart Digital Scale.  If you are an online shopper (like my hubby!), you can find it on Amazon.  I am super happy with this kitchen scale...I don't know why I never had one before!

You can learn more about EatSmart products by visiting any of their social media sites - Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, G+ and Instagram.
