    Kitchen Scale Recommendations

    So my scale died and I need to replace it. What do y’all use?
    Richard Chrz I am calling you out because I know you use the pizza bible and wonder what you use for weighing?

    Well, I am not the steak slayer, but I use an Oziri. America’s Test Kitchen said it was the second best & half the price of the best. Ok by me cuz I’m cheap. It is my go to for coffee.

      I use the Oziri Pronto. Does an awesome job.

    The small one is used often for pizza, those 5 and 10 gram readings seem unreliable on the larger one. Otherwise everything about 10 grams or so, I go to the larger scale, which is a mail scale which reads ounces, lbs, and grams, but cheaper because of tagged as a mail scale.

      Not only does that large scale give the weight, but it will tell you how much it will cost to send to your Grandma in Paducah.

    I use the same small scale as Richard, but I use a My Weigh KD8000 for everything else. If you get the My weigh, get the one with the AC adapter. When using batteries, it will time out and shut off which is not a good thing...

      I third (fourth?) the recommendation about the KD8000. I have used one for well over 5 years with no problems. Batteries last a LONG time in this scale. It has enough capacity (over 15 lbs) for almost all kitchen tasks.

      You can disable the auto-shutoff. See https://www.makesauerkraut.com/mywei...-scale-review/ Scroll down about halfway. The instructions are a slide show -- click the arrow at the right of each picture to go to the next step.

      This seller is where I got my scale. It now comes with an AC power adapter. But honestly the batteries last a long time, even with the auto shutoff disabled. https://www.oldwillknottscales.com/my-weigh-kd8000.html

      OMG don’t even get me started on the “timing out” thing. You speak truth!!

    FireMan and I use the same scale, the Ozeri. $15, gram accurate. https://www.nytimes.com/wirecutter/r...-kitchen-scale

        For accuracy down to .1 grams combined with a total capacity over 600 grams, the old stand by Triple Beam is hard to beat. It's also hard to explain if the cops should happen to stop by.

      I use this OXO: https://amzn.to/3rGPCP9 (I have an older model though.)

      Love the pull out display and it's very accurate. Batteries last forever. Easy clean up.

        I also use the OXO. Had it over 5 years. It just works.

        Add me to the Oxo scale lovers. Had mine for years. The pull out display is a great feature.

      We've had a Salter Aquatronic Glass scale for probably 20 years. We use it nearly every day and it's been great. Sadly, from the recent reviews it looks like they're having quality problems. https://www.amazon.com/Salter-Aquatr...ct_top?ie=UTF8

        MyWeigh. Look no further. I used OXO but it bit the dust. This has been awesome.

          Thanks y’all for the recommendations! A Salter is what I had since God was a boy. A foot fell off, but I was still able to make it work. And even with new batteries, it weights would fluctuate too much.

          off to shop!

            This is what I use. Suits my needs. Was really inexpensive.I use it for weights of broken down meats and other stuff. I don’t use it for baking tho

                    I have the black one. Truth be told I had to replace it after about 10 years. But I liked it enough to just buy a new one.

                Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
