I would like to buy a scale that has the Metric System and the Imperial System. What are your favourites, and which ones should I avoid? Thanks in advance.
I recently purchased the OXO Softworks Food Scale and really like it. It's easy to switch from metric to the United States customary system (pounds & ounces) which is similar but not identical to British Imperial units. If I'm adding several ingredients by weight to the same bowl I add the first, weigh, zero out the scale then add the next, etc.
I like the scales that have both -just in case!
Hi, if you want to buy a cheap scale , you can go amazon to buy.
you can't really go wrong -- you want to make sure it has a tare and it can handle your greatest weight that you will want to weigh -- like my current one goes to fifteen pounds -- good enough -- if i need to weigh 36 pounds i'd do 12/12/12 --
seriously there's hardly a wrong way to go -- wait, wait but it's gotta be digital :)
my favorite barbeque place uses the old fashioned food service one with the dial on the front and numbers that go all the way around -- and they routinely/regularly short me when i buy a pound of smoked turkey -- so it's gotta be digital -- i've often thought about getting them a digital scale -- i now literally take my scale in when i get a pound ha! but yes i do
