    Expert Advice

    Whether you are selecting a digital potion scale for your campus deli or community center foodservice kitchen, you will want to consider closely what is the best fit for you. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call one of our experts.

    Capacity and Graduation: Determine the weight capacity you require for your commercial kitchen. Consider the maximum weight you need to measure to ensure the scale can accommodate your needs. Look for scales with a fine graduation or precision, allowing you to measure small increments accurately. This is particularly important for recipes that require precise measurements.

    Platform Size and Design: Consider the size of the scale's platform based on the items you will be weighing. Ensure the platform is large enough to hold your ingredients or containers comfortably. Look for platforms made of durable materials such as stainless steel, as they are easy to clean, resistant to stains, and can withstand heavy use.

    Units of Measurement and Conversion: Choose a scale that offers the units of measurement you commonly use in your kitchen, such as grams, ounces, pounds, or kilograms. Some scales offer conversion features, allowing you to switch between different units of measurement easily. This can be helpful if you follow recipes with measurements in different units.

    Display and Readability: Look for scales with clear, easy-to-read displays. The display should show weight measurements clearly and prominently. Consider scales with backlit displays or large digits for enhanced visibility, especially in low-light environments.

    Tare Function: The tare function is essential for commercial kitchens. It allows you to zero out the weight of the container or ingredient on the scale, ensuring accurate measurements of the desired item only.

    Power Source and Battery Life: Determine whether you prefer a scale that operates on batteries or one that needs to be plugged into a power source. If you choose a battery-operated scale, consider models with long battery life to minimize the need for frequent battery replacements.

    Waterproof and Easy to Clean: In a busy commercial kitchen, spills and splatters are common. Look for scales that are waterproof or have a protective cover to prevent damage from liquids. Choose scales with smooth surfaces and removable platforms for easy cleaning and sanitation.
