Kitchen scales from famous brands

A kitchen scale is an indispensable device for cooking, helping to determine the mass of a product with maximum accuracy. At the moment, this is the only gadget that can determine the weight of a product with an accuracy of the gram..

Kitchen scales can be divided into two groups: electronic and mechanical. The undoubted advantage remains with electronic ones – they have higher measurement accuracy and a number of additional functions, they are the object of bold and interesting design solutions. Models are presented in all kinds of options: different sizes, materials, colors and shapes – depending on their purpose.

Electronic kitchen scales have the following characteristics:

  • Tara. There are two types of containers in which the product is weighed: a bowl and a platform. It is easier to weigh bulk solids (for example, cereals) and liquids in a bowl. Solid food can be placed on the platform, as well as containers (for example, a bowl of soup or dough). The platform scales with a removable bowl are the best option for weighing any substances or products..
  • The upper weighing limit is the maximum weight of the product that the balance can measure. On average, it is about 5 kg, but it can reach 15 and more for professional models.
  • Weighing error. The more accurate the kitchen scale, the smaller the error in weighing products. It is desirable that it does not exceed 1-2 g.
  • Additional functions. Different models can have a clock, taring and tare compensation (weighing a product without a container, as net weight), calorie counting function, sequential weighing, thermometer, clock, timer, touch control, thermometer and many other functions.
