I’ve had a love for baking for as long as I can remember, but never before have I owned a kitchen scale. When following recipes, I’ve always lucked out finding recipes that use cups as a standard of measurement for both dry and liquid ingredients. It wasn’t until I started this blog that I realized not everyone views cups as a standard. After several requests to convert my recipes to the metric system, I bought my very first kitchen scale (am I a real baker now or what?!) and spent some time making the conversions. Whatever measurement standard you use, my recipes are now easier than ever to follow, so get ready to bake your hearts out!
When hunting around for the perfect kitchen scale, I realized that there were more options than I could wrap my head around. I read reviews, watched videos, and asked some friends how they liked (or disliked!) their kitchen scales before making a purchase. After all my research, I decided on this OXO kitchen scale. It’s stainless steel with a digital display, and it couldn’t be easier to use! I couldn’t be a happier baker.
The coolest things about the OXO kitchen scale is that it has a removable platform for easy cleaning, pull-out display in case you’ve got a big bowl blocking your view of the numbers, and easy-to-understand instructions for a first time user (like me!). I was able to start using it right away since it came with all the batteries I needed. If you’re in need of a good digital kitchen scale, this one comes highly recommended from not only me, but America’s Test Kitchen as well. I watched them compare this scale to a dozen others and it came out way on top.
After spending time measuring ingredients and testing things out, I’m happy to say that every single recipe on my blog now features measurements in grams and milliliters as well as cups, so you’ll never have to do a rapid Google search to figure out how much an ingredient weighs in grams ever again. I’ll add the metric measurements to every recipe I create from here on out. I hope this makes your baking sessions with my recipes easier than ever!
