Today's Kool Idea: EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale

Well, judging by the weather, summer is definitely just around the corner here at The Daily Kool, and boy, are we in big trouble. Bathing suit season is almost here, and we have totally been neglecting our healthier eating habits these past few months...yikes! Time to get back on track and start watching what we eat. Thank goodness we have The Biggest Loser finale coming next Tuesday for inspiration. Those contestants are absolute inspiration to everyday people like us who want to improve our health and increase longevity. And, while The Biggest Loser contestants have had many tools at their disposal to help them shed those extra pounds, one of the most important has undoubtedly been an old standard...a kitchen scale.

Believe it or not, there are several features you should consider when purchasing a kitchen scale. Capacity, precision and price are our top three. There are so many choices for a kitchen scale on the market today...The Daily Kool believes that no one does it better than EatSmart. For our home, the EatSmart Precision Pro digital kitchen scale is hands-down one of the best investments we've ever made...and it definitely gets more of a workout than we ever do (unfortunately...sigh).

With an 11lb capacity, amazing accuracy and approximate $25 price tag, the
EatSmart Precision Pro digital kitchen scale is a terrific value. It is compact, yet the extra large LCD display makes it easy to, it's attractive enough to keep on our kitchen counter. We love the tare (zero) feature which allows us to automatically subtract the weight of a plate or container holding our food. Even better, it uses standard AAA batteries (as opposed to the more expensive CR2032 button ones) which we always have lying around the house. Add the four measurement mode (grams, ounces, kilograms and pounds) and a stable platform with five rubber feet to eliminate sliding, the EatSmart Precision Pro is a simple, yet effective digital scale for any kitchen. The only problem we've ever had with this product is when we want to measure ingredients in an extra large bowl or plate. They will partially cover the display, making it a little difficult to read...this is such a minor issue, though, it's hardly worth mentioning (but we will anyway, of course).

Not only is the
EatSmart Precision Pro digital kitchen scale invaluable as a tool for measuring food for weight management, but it is an absolute must have for any home baker. Precise measurements are the difference between success and failure in baking. Dry ingredients such as sugar and flour should always be measured with a kitchen scale, instead of standard measuring cups. There are too many variables (air pockets, compression, etc) that can intefer with pastry perfection...regardless of how much flour you get into your scoop, you can ensure better accuracy with a quality digital kitchen scale like the EatSmart Precision Pro.

Though the EatSmart Precision Pro digital kitchen scale is perfect for our household needs, the company has taken technology one giant step further with their latest innovation. In addition to traditional food measurement, the EatSmart Digital Nutrition scale also analyzes the nutritional content of ANY food by portion size, and is the only scale on the market that allows you to calculate nutrients for any food with a USDA Nutrition Facts label. For those of us who need a more comprehensive educational and behavioral modification tool, the EatSmart Digital Nutrition scale is definitely worth checking out.

Healthy eating choices, regular exercise and controlled consumption are the keys to proper weight loss and management. We never have to guess about portion sizes with our EatSmart Precision Pro digital kitchen scale. Putting our food on this scale today will help keep us off The Biggest Loser one in the future. Summertime, here we come!
