EatSmart Precision Pro Giveaway

After blogging about food for more than six years, I have learned many tips and tricks in the kitchen.  In fact, some of these things I probably wouldn’t have picked up on if it wasn’t for reading other food blogs.  The use of a kitchen scale is one of those.

A few years ago, I decided to buy a kitchen scale.  After researching and reading reviews, I decided on the EatSmart Precision Pro Multifunction Digital Kitchen Scale.  And, to this day, I know I made the right choice.  It’s smaller size allows easy storage in my kitchen drawer, and the price was perfectly right.

When looking for a kitchen scale for an average home cook, you want it to have these certain features:

  • Units in grams, ounces, kilograms, pounds
  • Quick and accurate
  • Tare feature, which keeps your scale clean!
  • Auto-off function
  • Grips so it doesn’t slide all over your counter
  • Inexpensive

This scale has all of the above.  If you are unfamiliar with what the “tare feature” means, it is simply eliminating the weight of the bowl.  So, if you do not want to weigh your ingredients directly on the scale, either because you want to avoid a mess, or it just isn’t possible, then you can place a bowl on it, press the “Tare” button and the counter starts back at zero.  Now it’s ready to weigh your ingredients without the weight of the bowl.  Sweet!

I use my kitchen scale many times while I bake.  I’ll sometimes weigh the portion of cookie dough balls to make sure they are all the same size for even baking, or I’ll weigh my pretzel bread dough for the same reason.  The flour in the pretzel dough recipe is also weighed on my scale, along with many other things.  And, the scale has held up very well over the years of use.

If you are a dieter or conscious about your calorie intake, then this scale is also perfect for you!  It comes with an EatSmart Calorie Factors book to help you count calories and control your portions.

I’m so ecstatic that my friends at EatSmart are generous enough to offer TWO of my readers a free Precision Pro Kitchen Scale!  See below for giveaway instructions.

    I would use it for both. Calorie counting and weighing ingredients for bread and cake making. I never thought about using it for making my cookies all the same size. What a good idea!

  2. Carly orris says:

    I will use it for calorie counting, mostly for weighing meat portions in recipes. It wil also come in handy to weigh pinewood derby cars!

  16. Catherine says:

    I’ve been recipe testing for an author in Australia, and she often lists weights of vegetables and grains. I’ve come to realize how important having a scale is, as something like a “medium” zucchini is so subjective!

  187. Hi Nikki,
    This would be a tremendous help for me in the kitchen! It is difficult to measure ounces, etc when all I have are a set of measuring cups and tablespoons.

    I plan on using this for measuring porttions and calorie-counting. Coupled with the long walks I like to take, this wscale would be a big help. Thank you.
