OXO Food Scale Review

It probably isn’t a surprise that new kitchen gadgets make me squeal.  I love new tools, new products to try out and even more, I love to share them with Y.O.U.

OXO has a blogger outreach program which allows bloggers to test out new and exciting products.  And not only do I get to share my thoughts, but I get to give one of these away to one of my readers.

I am (and always have been) a big fan of OXO products.  They are easily available in various stores, they are durable and their product developers think of everything.

Take this Food Scale for example.  It is amazingly easy to use, has a sleek design and I found nothing that I didn’t like about the scale.  Here are some perks to the scale:

– it holds up to 5 pounds
-it has a pull-out display created for easy viewing when you have a large bowl to place on top of the scale
-it has a “zero” button to measure ingredients in a bowl, without having to account for the weight of the bowl.
-the display is large and the readings appear quickly
-the platform is removable for easy cleaning
-the scale comes with the batteries it needs
-the scale is thin, very lightweight and stores easily in various places in the kitchen

Food scales are important in baking, but also in healthy eating.  I know that every day I try to make healthy food choices.  With lots of cookies around all the time, it can be difficult.  But with the proper tools, this can be done!

The day after it came in the mail I pulled out some ingredients to make some Elvis baked oatmeal, with some additional fruit.  This oatmeal, or any oatmeal, is usually my choice for a healthy breakfast, but I particularly choose baked oatmeal on the weekends, and then portion out leftovers for the week ahead.

This giveaway is now closed.

The winner is: #40 Nicole, who likes her oatmeal with butter, milk and brown sugar…my kind of gal!  Congrats Nicole, I have emailed you, please respond within 24 hours with your full name mailing address.
