This kitchen scale is a gift from my hubby’s assistant. It’s a manual kitchen scale, and made by GIA and a made-in-China product. The capacity of this kitchen scale is 5kg, which I think is quite big capacity for a kitchen scale. It comes with the plate for putting the stuff that we want to weigh. It’s an aluminum-like scale, and the quality is just so-so. However, it measures a precise weight; the red dial will point at a measurement number. I have owned this kitchen scale for a while (I think around three-four years), and at some bottom parts I could see some spots of rust already. But this, of course, doesn’t affect the weighing performance of the scale. When baking cookies, or cooking large portions, especially when we are about to have guests come in, I would use this scale. It’s best for flour, sugar, chocolate, and some veggies. I love making new meals that I’ve never cooked before, and normally would use it on the times when I’m about to cook new recipes listed on magazines or books, so this way I could be sure that the recipes are true in their measurement of the ingredients. For me, this is a helpful tool. I guess I’m lucky to have this scale.
