Those of you who use bakers percentages, understand that you can duplicate any recipe in any amount, anytime! While figuring out percentages can sharpen your math skills. It is nice when a tool comes along that can assist you with formulas.
"Percentage Weighing" or proportional measuring makes for precise recipes and allows bakers to easily make larger or smaller batches of a given recipe. This has been a long-standing way for bakers to weigh their ingredients in proportion to their main ingredient (flour). This feature is the preferred method for bakers for the simple fact that it eliminates messy math that comes with weighing in teaspoons, cups, etc. - instead you deal with just percentage. Also, measuring this way allows for you to make as little or as much as you want easier.
It works like this: place a mixing bowl on the scale and tare it to zero. Add your flour and note that this is the 100% of the recipe (this is done by simply pressing the percentage key twice.)Next, empty your bowl, replace it on the scale and fill it with the next ingredient to the desired percentage you want. THAT'S IT!
Just complete with the rest of the ingredients and you're done. It's as simple as that. This highly functional digital scale is a MUST-HAVE for any aspiring or professional baker!
The scale has a stainless-steel removable tray, and comes with a removable shield to protect the display and keys from any mess. Check out the video below!
