I recently received an Ozeri Touch II Digital Kitchen Scale to review and I absolutely love it!
Every good cook knows the importance of a reliable, easy to use kitchen scale.
I have two…
Well, make that three now that I’ve added the Ozeri Touch II Digital Kitchen Scale to my collection.
Until this past July my scales would generally only come out when I am baking.
This past summer I started tracking my macros for the first time when I joined the FASTer Way to Fat Loss created by Amanda Tress. Although I have a fairly good sense of portion size I felt it was best to be acurate when tracking macros.
My Ozeri Scale was the perfect tool for the job!
Seven Things I love about the Ozeri Touch II Digital Kitchen Scale
I love the sleek, slim design of the Ozeri Touch II Digital scale! It also comes in a variety of colors to match your kitchen decor. The slim design makes it super easy to store. I keep mine in a drawer with my dish towels for easy access.
Large Surface Area
I love the large surface area of this scale! It makes measuring my food so much easier than with my other two scales that are much smaller. Whether I place the food directly on the scale or in a bowl there’s plenty of room for all my food to be directly on the scale so I know me measurements are accurate.
Antimicrobial Protection for Added Peace of Mind
The Ozeri Touch II is infused with Microban antimicrobial technology to provide an added level of protection that won’t ever wear away. This means I can place my food directly on the surface of the scale without worry, whether it be a bunch of veggies or a fresh piece of meat or fish. I love that as it saves me from dirtying extra containers just to measure my food,
Large Display that is Easy to Read
No squinting with to read your scale! The Blue LCD display is easy to read. One of my other scale has the old fashioned line measurements with the needle that stops on the right line. Those lines are not nearly as accurate an can be hard to read, especially since the container that holds the food sits on top so I have to get close to read it.
Easy Tare Function
It took me a little while to get the hang of using this function. I initially got a little frustrated as I would touch the ‘Tare” button and get all sorts of crazy numbers on my display rather than the 0.00 I was looking for. The important thing is to touch and hold the button for a split second after placing your bowl on the scale, then give it a second or two deduct the weight of the bowl. It’s also important to always place the scale on a flat surface and gently put the bowl on the scale.
Easy Switch from Ounces to Grams
My favorite desserts recipes are in French which means measurements are in grams. I love how easily I can switch from one unit to the other with a simple touch of the Unit button. Press and hold for a split second to change from ounces to grams or vice versa.
Easy to clean
I wipe my scale with a dry clean cloth after use. If I placed fish or meat directly on the scale I use a tiny bit of dish washing soap on the cloth and that’s it.
