Weighing rather than using measuring cups sounds like a great idea. For those of you who use them, can you recommend a particular model or place to purchase one? Thanks!

Actually, I purchased a scale from the post office for weighing packages for postage. When I decided to try weighing my flour rather than measuring in cups, I just used my postage scale.

I bought the Escali from Amazon and love it.

I'm not an expert on them but mine is a Salter stainless steel one from Bed Bad & Beyond and I just love it. Simple to use.

Thanks for the replies!

The one you recommended, Delia, looks great! People sound very pleased with it from the reviews. Free shipping too!

I have a really small one from Bed Bath and Beyond as well. In fact, I think it's a Salter too. It's excellent. I actually bought it for weighing my food, like chicken and steak, etc. But I ended up using it for cake stuff.

My only complaint is that it's so small. I really need to get a much bigger one that has room to work with. So that's my only recommendation. Buy one that has a little bit of room to work with. My 4 cup bowl doesn't fit on the one I have.

I went ahead and ordered the one delisa01 has -- and I snuck a new cookie book onto the order too!

Your welcome! That sneaking in a cookie book sounds like something I would do. LOL
