We have looked at the various scales available on the market, and there are lots, to see which is most suited to the keen domestic baker. We, like many, have been frustrated with most scales that don't quite come up to the mark and came up with a list of features that a really good scale needs to have:
The My Weigh KD-8000 is the scale that we think answers all of these: it is a scale for the serious user. With a backlit display, set forward, it is easy to read it with a large bowl on the platform. The My Weigh KD-8000 measures up to 8kg in 1g increments, more than enough capacity and resolution for kitchen baking requirements. It has a strong, stainless-steel platform which is removable for cleaning and comes with a cleanable display cover.
Best of all, it is the only scale in its class that offers BPF (Baker's Percentage Function). This is the established way for bakers to weigh their ingredients in proportion to their main ingredient (flour). It is the preferred method for bakers since it eliminates awkward calculations or conversions as all ingredients are in proportion allowing you to decide how much dough you want to make with ease.
We think that the KD-8000 stands apart from other scales, is seriously good value for money (and with a 30 year warranty), this, for the serious baker, this is the choice.
