How to Choose the Right Food Scale?

Here are some things you may wish to consider while you’re selecting a set of food scales…

  • Accuracy: Arguably the first thing you should factor in when selecting a pair of scales. Accurate measurements in food scales are crucial for precise recipe execution, portion control, and ensuring consistent product quality.
  • Platform Size: Digital scales come in many different sizes, so selecting an appropriate platform size for specific weighing needs is essential. You’ll ultimately need something that neatly fits in your kitchen setup, in a non-cluttered manner, so as to keep your measurement readings from being influenced by external impact interference.
  • Capacity: The maximum weight capacity is a very important factor to keep in mind when buying any kind of weighing device and should be considered a driving force in your ultimate choice of product. If you’re doing basic food prep with typically light ingredients, something that’s small and compact may be all you need. If you’re batch cooking - or simply working with ingredients that are significantly heavier - then obviously you’re going to need a larger set with a bit more grunt. When assessing the maximum weight to be placed on the scale, don’t forget to factor in the weight of containers that you’ll be using.
  • Readability: A good set of scales should optimise quick and easy readability; as such, the screen should be positioned in a way that allows clear and legible weight readings while the scale is in use. Displays with large, high-contrast, backlit options and big digits are preferable.

How do you know if the food scale is accurate? 

You can check the accuracy of a food scale by using calibrated weights or comparing measurements with a verified scale.

What should I look for in a food scale? 

When selecting a food scale, consider factors such as accuracy, weight capacity, ease of use, readability, platform size, and cleaning capabilities.

What's the difference between a food scale and a regular scale? 

A food scale is specifically designed for measuring ingredients in the kitchen and often provides features like tare functionality, unit conversions, and nutritional information.

What are three types of food scales? 

Common types of food scales include digital scales (electronic scales with digital displays), mechanical scales (analog scales with dials or pointers), and kitchen scale apps (smartphone applications).

How do you calibrate a digital food scale? 

Scale calibration typically involves placing a known weight on the scale and adjusting it until the scale reads accurately. That said, it is always recommended that you read and follow the manufacturer's instructions, as there is no universal rule for weight calibration across different models.
