Kitchen scales, as the name implies, are a tool for accurately metering the weight of food ingredients used in cooking. Kitchen scales are made of ABS or AAS plastic and stainless steel. Electronic kitchen scales may also use tempered glass, as tempered glass is easy to clean and is generally used as a tray part of a kitchen scale.
Like a normal scale, the kitchen scale is also determined by electronic sensing or spring telescoping. In comparison, electronic sensing accuracy is higher than spring metering.
Through the second point we know the classification of the kitchen scale, which helps us choose the kitchen scale that suits you. The accuracy of the general household kitchen scale is lower than that of the hotel; the measurement accuracy of the Chinese type is lower than that of the western type pastry. Moreover, mechanical kitchen scales are generally divided into 1kg, 2kg, 3kg and 5kg, and the accuracy is at least 5g, which is suitable for occasions with low precision requirements. The electronic kitchen scale is generally 5KG weighing range with a minimum precision of 0.1g. Currently, 2 AA (No. 5) dry batteries are commonly used on the market. In the early days, CR2032 button batteries were embedded (can be bought in the computer market or watch shop, computer motherboards) The battery is such a battery) has gradually been eliminated. Conventionally, an electronic scale has only one range and precision. The kitchen scales of different ranges have relatively different precisions, such as 5 kg*1 g, 7 kg*1 g, 3 kg*0.5 g, 2 kg*0.1 g, 1 kg * 0.2 g, 500 g * 0.1 g.
How to use kitchen scales
Most people were found to be unaware of the difference between the calories and serving sizes of the food. How to use the kitchen scale to weigh the food scale to help you identify the correct amount of food you eat, helping you to reduce calories and lose weight.
1 Determine the type of kitchen scale you want to use. Some people prefer to buy a digital scale because it provides accurate measurements without guessing; other options include springs and scales. When choosing, focus on a scale with numbers that you can easily read, and within your budget, have a bowl or cup for food and easy to use.
2 Read the manual manual that came with your scale. There may be no simple tutorials in the manual, but some digital scales have advanced features such as calorie measurement and nutritional value. Reading the instructions will help you understand the specific functions of the scale.
3 Put your kitchen scale back to zero. Depending on the type of kitchen scale you are purchasing, this may be as simple as opening the scale and waiting for the display to be “0”. For springs and kitchen scales, you may need to turn the knob on the scale to 0.
4 Weigh the bowl or container to store the food you weigh. You need to know the weight of the container so that it is subtracted from the number registered in the scale when adding food to it. The answer will give you the actual weight of the food. Some scales included with the container have a special button that automatically records the container; use this feature according to the manufacturer's instructions.
5 Place the food portion in a container on the scale. Please wait for the scale before reading the weight. If you are using a digital scale, you will see the weight displayed automatically, or you may need to set it to indicate the type of food you are weighing in the scale. Obtain the correct reading according to the manufacturer's instructions.
6 If necessary, subtract the weight of the container (peeling) from the reading so that the final weight value is better calculated when the weight of the food is weighed down.
