Update 01/28/19: I still use this exact same scale in my kitchen today. It’s surprisingly durable and accurate.
Kitchen scales help make weighing recipe ingredients an exact science. I often rely upon using a scale when preparing baked goods. I recently received the Precision Pro kitchen scale from EatSmart to review. It’s affordable, accurate and easy to use.
I’m almost embarrassed how I currently measure ingredients. Many, many years ago I had an eBay business and purchased a postal scale for weighing packages. The scale slowly morphed into weighing items in the kitchen because it was accurate. I continued to use it but found it has limitations (since it wasn’t designed for how I was using it).
Precision Pro Overview
The EatSmart Precision Pro kitchen scale is intended for kitchen use. The scale can assist in calculating calories in the foods you eat. Simply weigh a portion of food then use the accompanying booklet to calculate calorie content.
Whether your goal is to bake bread or justify a handful of cashews, the Precision Pro kitchen scale offers a simple design and accurate measurement.

Kitchen Scale Performance Review
Overall, the compact kitchen scale delivers solid results. I compared it side by side with my other scale and I preferred the Precision Pro in comparison.
The Precision Pro is light and I immediately questioned its capability. However, I soon realized that its lightweight construction didn’t impede its ability to accurately weigh a variety of foods. I used a range of items weighing a few grams to more than 8 pounds. I re-weighed everything a second time and found the measurements remained the same.
Next, I used the tare function and measured the items on plates or in bowls. The measurements remained accurate throughout. (I can’t same the same for the Pelouze scale which altered measurement readings periodically)
Overall, the Precision Pro performed extremely well. I only have two small criticisms after using it these past two weeks. The measurements remain entirely in the unit selected (i.e. for heavier items it will not show both pounds and ounces). So, if you’re weighing 4lbs 14 ounces of flour for a recipe, then you’ll need to know that you need 78 ounces or alternatively 4.87 lbs.
The compact design also disallows using a dinner plate on which to weigh your food. The plate diameter obscures the digital panel. Even using a dessert plate, you’ll need to peek under the edge to read the measurements.
Where to buy the EatSmart kitchen scale?
The Precision Pro kitchen scale is available for purchase from Amazon.com for less than $30: EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale.
