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!

When one uses the right tool for the right job, it makes life a whole lot easier. Well this is the right tool.
This professional pizza cutter is truly high quality. The size is substantial and it makes pizza night fun because clean up is easy.
Those cheap wooden-handle pizza cutters just don't cut it (sorry for the "pun"). They don't last and they're made cheap for "home use". These professional cutters are sturdy and offer a smooth roll as you slice your pie. Furthermore, after a big pizza night... it's nice that these can be thrown right into the dishwasher.
These cutters have a 4" rolling blade and should be the last one that you buy, since the blades can be sharpened and the cutting wheels are replaceable, if needed.
4" Stainless Steel blade, great "thumb-guard" design. If you would like to see it in action, check it out in the Pizza Cutters 101 video located on our FG Instructional Videos page.
