Tips on using kitchen scales to share! Add Time:2023-10-24

In the kitchen, using a scale to weigh ingredients is a very important step. The correct use of kitchen scales can ensure that the ingredients in a dish are in the correct proportion, resulting in a better texture and taste. Here are some tips for using a kitchen scale that I hope will help you in your cooking process.

1. Pre-preparation of ingredients: Before weighing the ingredients, prepare the required ingredients in advance. If you measure water, you can pour the right amount of water into the container in advance, and then put the container on the scale for accurate weighing. This prevents the ingredients from spilling or dripping, making the weighing more accurate.

2. Zero operation: Before weighing, make sure the scale has been zero. This means placing the scale on a smooth horizontal surface and pressing the "tare" button or adjusting the "return to zero" bit to ensure that the scale indicates zero. This way, when you put the ingredients on the scale, you will get their net weight without worrying about the weight of the container or other objects.

3. Batch weighing: For large quantities of ingredients, such as flour, sugar or salt, you can take a batch weighing method to ensure that the weight of each batch is more accurate. Place a portion of the ingredients on the scale, record the weight, and then add the rest until the desired total weight is reached. This avoids the weight range of the scale, making the weighing more accurate.

4. Ensure stability: When weighing ingredients, ensure the stability of the ingredients. If the ingredients are too small or too uneven, they tend to slip or tilt, resulting in inaccurate weight. A larger bowl or container can be used to weigh wobbly ingredients to ensure they stay on the scale and reduce errors.

5. Accurate reading: When reading the weight on the scale, read the number by looking directly at the position perpendicular to the pointer or display. Viewing angles that are too high or too low can cause reading errors. If necessary, it can be bent over to ensure an accurate reading.

6. Cleaning and maintenance: Clean and maintain the kitchen scale regularly to ensure its accuracy and normal operation. Try to avoid grease or other dirt on the smooth surface of the scale, so that you can maintain a clear display and accurate weighing. Use mild soapy water and a soft cloth to wipe the surface of the scale.

7. Multi-functional use: The kitchen usually has different unit conversion and a variety of functions, such as timers, thermometers, etc. Fully understanding and utilizing these functions can make the cooking process more convenient and efficient.

8. Use matching utensils: In order to make better use of the kitchen scale, you can use some matching utensils when weighing some ingredients. For example, using a measuring cup or spoon to weigh liquid or powdered ingredients can make weighing more convenient and accurate.

9. Mark the container: When using the kitchen scale, the weighing of the ingredients is often added gradually, so for the ingredients that need to be weighed multiple times, you can use a erasable pen or other marking tool on the container to mark the scale reading. This makes it easier to refer to previous records the next time you need to weigh the same ingredients.

10. Practice mastering: Using the kitchen scale requires some skill and experience, so more practice in cooking can become more proficient. By constantly weighing and comparing the results, you can improve the accuracy of weighing, and gradually master the skills of using kitchen weighing.

These are some tips for using a kitchen scale. Hopefully, these tips will help you in the cooking process and make dishes more delicious. Remember, accurate weighing is one of the keys to cooking, so make good use of the kitchen scale and constantly improve your skills through practice and experience. I wish you all a delicious meal in the kitchen!
