Digital Kitchen Scale & Nutritionist Consultation Giveaway

Here’s your chance to win a digital kitchen scale

In many other countries ingredients used in cooking and baking are weighed because 50 grams of all-purpose flour is always 50 grams of flour.

However, depending on how you measure it in a measuring cup, what you think is 1/2 cup flour one is actually 1/2 cup minus a tablespoon on the day you’re in a hurry and 1/2 cup plus one tablespoon on the day you didn’t level off your measuring cup with a knife blade. These subtleties can adversely effect baking results.

You wouldn’t want to incorrectly measure the flour on a batch of cookies and mess those up. The horrors.

There’s also the issue of portion sizes and weighing food and many people find scales helpful for that.

Also included in this giveaway is a free email consultation with a nutritionist on the SlimKicker team.

    I would love a scale to measure cheese! 30 grams is a serving, the equivalent of a few dice, but who has dice around? I find it to be the most annoying thing and I never know if I’m eating one serving or 3 servings.

    I used to have a foodscale and LOVED it! I think it died from over use. I could def. use another one as I think I have been a bit heavy handed with my portions lately!
