This is an essential to every kitchen. Sometimes I wish that I lived in a country that used the metric system. Recipes that use the metric system are often times much more accurate and make it easier to re-produce good results. The kitchen scale I have was given to me by my Mom. It is a Salter Aquatronics. It’s pretty basic; it has conversions for fluid ounces, ounces, kilograms and pounds. It’s come in handy for my baking endeavors and for measuring the right amount of pasta to cook for big groups of people. Having a kitchen scale makes working in the kitchen so much more versatile and allows you to do so much more! I recommend everyone get a kitchen scale…invest in one; it’s worth it!
