When I first heard of a kitchen scale I thought it was funny. Who in the world wanted to weigh their food?! As I got older though, and started getting concerned about what I ate, that thought completely changed. So when I had the opportunity to review an Ozeri Pro II Digital Kitchen Scale, I instantly started imagining how my life was going to change. Okay, that might be a little bit of an exaggeration but I was pretty darn excited.
When I received my kitchen scale in the mail, I wasted no time. I was excited to open it up and start using it.
The scale is pretty self explanitory. However, if you’re unsure there is still a user manual (:
Not only does it include a scale and user manual, there is also a book that contains calorie information AND get this, US Postal rates! Yes, you can even weigh your letters to make sure they’re properly stamped.
I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve mailed out birthday cards, pictures of Landon or letters to my little brother and they’ve been returned due to too little postage. Ugh. I don’t have to worry about that now!
So when I go grocery shopping, I always buy the 3lb package of ground hamburger. I make chili, spaghetti, hamburger helper and many other meals that need hamburger. Depending on what I’m making though, I only need half of a pound. “Guessing” how much half a pound was tends to get a little tricky. Now that I have my Ozeri Kitchen Scale though, I don’t have that problem anymore. I can just set some meat on there and see if it’s the correct amount.
I love using my new scale. I weigh almost everything now, including my chicken. I can’t say I’ve drastically lost weight – actually I gained a little weight ): but it’s going back down again! I know though, that when I’m using my Ozeri Kitchen Scale, I’m making a difference in how much I eat. I’ve also been watching my calories a bit more lately. Having the calorie book around is REALLY handy. They even have a spot for fast foods, such as tacos and sundaes! Not that I eat out anymore. I live too far away from McDonalds & Taco Bell, which works out great for me! (:
As for using it to weigh my letters, well that has saved a lot of time and I know they’re not going to be returned anymore! When prices raise [again] I can just mark it in the book.
Okay, so I told you about how I use the Ozeri Pro II Digital Kitchen Scale. I told you about the calorie book. I told you about user manual. However, there’s more to this little scale. (Ha I sound like an infomertial lol).
This little guy also has a built-in kitchen timer and alarm! All of that is great. If you ask me though, the best thing is, it comes with batteries! You know how much I love when I don’t have to buy batteries (:
