My Review

 

I have been trying to get my family on a healthier track, and though we generally eat healthy, portion control was a concern of mine.  Although my family is not overweight and my children are a healthy weight for their age, I still want to teach them the benefits of healthy eating habits while they are young. The greatest benefit of a kitchen scale is that it provides you with an accurate and precise way to measure your food. Weighing all of your ingredients down to the ounce or gram is far more reliable as apposed to using measuring cups. The scale also comes with a calorie counting book that teaches you how to calculate the amount of calories in many common foods. It’s an all around beneficial item to have in your kitchen if you are trying to keep your calories under control and serve healthier food portions.

I absolutely love how small and compact this scale is! My counter is slowly being taken over by kitchen appliances, so I was very excited that my kitchen scale was small enough to fit right on the counter with them. Because of it’s light weight, its easy to move about the kitchen and have my kids help with the measurements. I am very pleased with the scale and the price is extremely affordable!

 

 

Here is the EatSmart Digital Kitchen Scale:

I placed a bowl on top of the scale to show you how you can subtract the weight of the plate

I simply pressed the tare button and the weight of the scale is subtracted! I also switched the measurement over to ounces.

The bag of pretzels suggested 1oz for the serving size. So I placed the appropriate amount of pretzels in and now have my healthy serving of pretzels. How easy was that? This can get somewhat addicting, but a health addiction it is indeed!

This is the very useful calorie counter booklet that came with the scale!

  1. I have wanted one of these scales for a long time. This one appears to be “smart” but “user friendly” at the same time. That is definitely an asset of this machine. Good review, thank you.

  2. This tool would be helpful, my fiance and I both could use this. I have been trying to count calories without one of these and it just doesn’t work as well.

  3. I would love a digital kitchen scale. Much more accurate than the “Flintstone-ish” one I own now & have had for years. Obviously, it isn’t working right…………I’m still overweight!

  4. This would drive me nuts! lol aving to measure everything, seperate it all, sort it… But most of all…. It would show me how small a serving size is… And make me feel horrible after realizing I normally eat a good 3 times that normally >,<

  5. I’ve always used a scale in my kitchen but this one looks like the platform you put the plate on looks larger then most of them. Thanks for the great review. I’ll definitely be checking this one out.

  6. Thank you for a great review, I always look to my bloggers for their trusted opinions on products before I purchase. I love how the scale subtracts the amount of the bowl giving you a more accurate weight. The booklet that comes with the product is also beneficial to my family as we are all trying to get healthy and we live in a world where everything is super sized. This will help us reign in our portion control. Thanks for the info.

  7. I really am in need of a scale and I love this one. It weighs up to 15 pounds which is perfect and Eatsmart is a very good name brand. My old scale is on its last leg so this would be one I will have to possibly get when mine gives out.

  8. This would help me so much….I really need to start weighing my food, and since my husband was diagnosed with cancer – we both are trying to eat more healthy. This would be a smart buy for me in the future.

  9. I am on a special diet that requires me to measure the weight of my foods. This looks like an excellent tool that I could use!

  10. I have been trying to do portion control to lose weight since I am unable to exercise. I don’t have much more to lose, but I have stalled for some reason. I always try to look at examples of a good portion online and that is such a pain trying to find that for each meal. I really like this scale! I think it would help me do better than trying to eyeball portions. Thank you so much for your review!

  11. I would love this to help my family to eat healthier and a more balanced meal and it looks easy to use.

  12. this scale looks awesome. I think it might be small enough to be sotred away in a cabinet or drawer when not using it? Either way… it looks easy to use to help with a more healthy way of life.

  13. this is awesome this would help so much with trying to control weight for my family my kids aren’t overweight either but learning now while they are teenagers may help them later

  14. I really like these scales, I have been wanting one for several months now. They have kitchen scales all they way to bathroom . I believe from the reviews I have seen that they would be of good quality as well.

  15. I would love to use this scale. The ones I’ve used in the past are so inaccurate. I like that it has a 3 min auto off and that it has the 4 measurement modes: Grams / Ounces / Kilograms / Pounds.

  16. Having a kitchen scale sure puts things in shocking perspective! I have a Weight Watcher’s scale and the portion sizes was an eye-opening lesson for me!

  17. I quit smoking, Dec. 31, and I have been gaining weight something awful. I just started a *diet* yesterday, and this would be great to help. I just keep getting bigger, and I cant let that happen. This scale looks really nice, and Im sure it is an excellent product.

  18. I love how it looks so easy to use and is so clean. This would be great for preparing meals in the kitchen as well as being more mindful about how much food you’re eating!

  19. I could really use one of these, maybe it would me be more conscious about what I eat and how much.

  20. i’ve been thinking about getting a food scale for quite a while, but i can’t really justify spending the money or using up the counter/cabinet space for one… as i’m sure the only time i would use it is when i buy family packages of ground beef and need to separate into 1-lb baggies to freeze or refrigerate. 🙂

  21. A great way to watch what your eating and portion control is always a task in my house. I wish I could loose more weight and have my husband gain more weight. A great review Thanks.

  22. I have always found that the key to losing weight is weighing all your food! Digi scales are crucial!!

  23. I like that this scale is compact since I have limited counter space, also that its lightweight so would be easy to pick up and move if needed. Its awesome that it subtracts the weight of the bowls that would hold the food being weighed! And its nice that its operated by two buttons and that the platform is made out of stainless steel.

  24. I’ve recently tried to cook using a scale. This is interesting since most of my cooking is a pinch of this and a handful of that.

  25. This is great for portion control and also to weigh out foods to freeze separately. Would love to have this, thanks for the great review.

  26. This is a definite plus, especially since I want to learn how to portion my meals correctly. Thanks for the review. =)

  27. I want one of these scales so badly. I can think of so many ways we could use it, especially since we don’t ever eat out anywhere.

  28. What a wonderful scale to help you eat the appropriate serving, as a 44 year old now I look back growing up and wished I would have learned from a child on healthy eating, I think my life would have been different.

  29. I’ve had this scale on my wish list for a while. I’m not interested in using it for portion control or calorie counting, but to use when baking for measuring flour and other ingredients and when canning, to make sure I’m using the right amount of fruit. Thanks for this review.

  30. My wife would love this. She been hounding me on how we need to lose weight an this would most likely help alot

  31. i love everything about these scales!!! you did an awesome review it makes me want some!!!

  32. I love everything that’s compact. Since I’m always on the go, I need things to be slim and lightweight. Since I haven’t chosen and decided which digital scale to choose, I think I’m including this in my list of must-haves.
