Why do we need a digital kitchen scale in our kitchen? Is it just for fun cooking or is it really important for all cooks? For those who do not take the cooking seriously or just cook to eat something, you might think that a kitchen scale is just a waste of money. Actually, this is a perfect holiday gift idea. A digital kitchen scale is one of the essential tools for those who need precision in their kitchen. For a baker, it is just as important as a kitchen appliance. The Ozeri Touch II 18 lbs Digital Kitchen Scale has Microban antimicrobial protection that can stop the growth of bacteria that can cause stains, odors and product damage. Did you know that in an unprotected kitchen, the bacteria can double every 20 minutes? The digital kitchen scale is equipped with two lithium batteries. The scale has a low battery and overload indicator and turns off automatically after two minutes of inactivity to extend battery life.
