Review and Giveaway: Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale

Monday, January 9, 2012

It's a new year.  You've probably come up with some ideas on how to become a "new you".  If eating right is one of those resolutions, remember that it's quality and quantity.  Do you really know what the correct serving size (2 oz) of dried pasta looks like?  If you want to create that daily 500 calorie deficit, you need to.

"The EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale is an economically priced multifunction home scale, perfect for everyday tasks from weighing food or ingredients to calculating postage. Along with our Precision Pro, you will also receive a FREE Calorie Factors Book making it easy to achieve goals such as portion control and calorie counting."

  2. Tare Feature; Subtract the weight of any plate or container
  3. 4 Measurement Modes: Grams / Ounces / Kilograms / Pounds
  4. Max Weight: 11 pounds / 5 kilograms
  5. Graduation: .05 oz / 1 gram
  6. 3 minute Auto-Turnoff
  7. Includes 2 AAA batteries
What I Think:
The Precision Pro scale is sleek, light-weight and easy to use.  It takes up very little space (I even have room on my counter and I have a galley kitchen).  And since it comes in a variety of colors, I was able to pick the one that matched the stainless finish on my appliances.  Another nice thing about the small size and weight is that you can tuck it in your suitcase if you're going away (yep, you even have to watch what you eat on vacation).

That's the fashion, now on to the function.  This digital kitchen scale couldn't be easier to use.  There are only 2 buttons, that are clearly marked.  One to turn it on and off and reset, and one to choose the measurement unit (grams, ounces, kilograms, pounds).  You turn it on, choose the unit and place your food on scale to get the measurement.  The display is large and easy to read.  The scale is sensitive enough to register the addition of even one piece of linguine (trust me, I want to get every bite out of my 2ozs).  Another nice function is the Tare.  If you've got a rolly-poly food, like grapes, you can put a bowl on the scale and reset the weight to zero.  Then place the grapes in the bowl for an accurate measurement.  A bonus: the included Calorie-Factor Guide.  The Calorie-Factor is a USDA calculated number that represpents calories/gram of food.  EatSmart has provided the Calorie-Factor for nearly 1000 different foods, making it much easier to figure out just how many calories you're consuming each day.

I don't think there's anything I'd change about this product.  Now for the fun stuff...
GIVEAWAY!

I received the EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale in exchange for my honest review.  I received no other compensation.

They have a bathroom scale that measures body fat percentages as well as water... that's kind of neat.

I learned that "EatSmart digital scales are accurate to +-.05 ounces." That's pretty darn accurate!

I had no idea that scales were so technologically advanced! I was pretty impressed!
