Sugarlaws: Living Sweetly.

giveaway: EatSmart precision pro kitchen scale

Pin It

June 24th, 2010 · Print Print

So excited to announce this giveaway!  When I took a pastry class a year or so ago, one of the most important things we were taught is the importance of a good kitchen scale.  People say that baking is unpredictable, but one of the biggest variations that can ruin a recipe is when people don’t measure out ingredients correctly.  I’ll admit that I’m a lazy baker, but a lot of the time, if a recipe doesn’t work out, I can just start over.  If I’m on a deadline and need something done right, out comes the scale. 

And if your kitchen doesn’t have a baking scale, here’s your chance!  The absolutely terrific folks at EatSmart have offered one to a lucky reader!  This scale is no joke — it received over 1,000 ratings on Amazon, and its average is a perfect five stars.  If you can’t bake a birthday cake from scratch with this baby, just hang up your apron.

Two ways to win, yet again!  You can either (a) leave a comment on the Sugarlaws Facebook page (I cannot *wait* for the day that Sugarlaws has more Facebook friends than I do); or (b) leave a comment below.  Yes, that means you can enter twice!  Just one restriction: U.S. shipping addresses only.  I’ll pick a winner randomly and announce it next Thursday.

Good luck!

    I could use a kitchen scale. The more creative I get with my cooking and baking, I see how important it is to have a scale!

  • 14 Meegan // Jun 24, 2010 at 6:38 am

    My cooking and baking motto: I think recipes are just a suggestion – but a great food scale is totally necessary to making sure my hips stay in decent proportion.

  • 23 Jaya K // Jun 24, 2010 at 7:23 am

    What a great giveaway!  My old, non-digital scale is getting pretty lousy at accurate measurements and I could totally use a new scale!

  • 24 AJ // Jun 24, 2010 at 7:35 am

  • 25 Morgan // Jun 24, 2010 at 7:49 am

    Having a scale would make me a better baker, I just know it…

  • 27 Mike // Jun 24, 2010 at 8:38 am

    I’ve been thinking about getting a digital scale for a while now… maybe this is the opportunity to do so.

    This is a very important item to own!

  • 34 Nicole // Jun 24, 2010 at 9:28 am

    Way back when, I was looking for a way to make pasta without a machine….and only you delivered! I do the local eating thing so almost everything I make is from scratch, but I just graduated so thus far I haven’t been able to buy any tools. A scale is on my list of must-haves since I make sourdough bread on a regular basis. But since I’m now on the hunt for a job a free one would be great! Thanks for all the recipes!

  • 35 Edana // Jun 24, 2010 at 9:30 am

    I would like a scale!

  • 36 Pearl // Jun 24, 2010 at 9:35 am

    Perfect to use with baking bread, especially recipes where they call for the weight of ingredients rather than the measurement!

  • 37 Joanne // Jun 24, 2010 at 9:35 am

    Awesome!  After baking with a scale, I could never go back to not!

  • 38 Renee // Jun 24, 2010 at 10:30 am

    OH MY! I saved and saved and saved and bought myself a Cuisinart ice cream maker recently. I would LOVE this scale. Help this just out of college baker sister out!

  • 39 Anaiah // Jun 24, 2010 at 10:41 am

    I have been in desperate need of a scale for a while now.  Would love it!

  • 40 Jennifer Z. // Jun 24, 2010 at 10:48 am

    What a great giveaway!  I have been wanting one of these forever :)

  • 42 Jay P // Jun 24, 2010 at 11:03 am

    I swore to myself I was going to avoid your blog for a couple weeks (nothing you did I’m in Phase 1 of the South Beach Diet – no carbs, no sugar etc.  So why torture myself with your delicious recipes?) But when I saw this I jumped right in.  Would LOVE to have a digital scale.

  • 43 Sallie // Jun 24, 2010 at 11:58 am

    I cannot WEIGHT to get my hands on this scale!

  • 44 Amanda // Jun 24, 2010 at 12:40 pm

  • 45 Kathy - Panini Happy // Jun 24, 2010 at 1:03 pm

    I keep saying I’m going to buy a scale, but I still haven’t. So hopefully I’ll win this one :-)

  • 46 Wonderful // Jun 24, 2010 at 1:11 pm

    Oh, how cool! This would be very useful to have and I’d be the first one to have one in my group of friends, which would make it even more awesome to have!

  • 47 sarakata // Jun 24, 2010 at 1:25 pm

    Perfect timing! I was totally pricing out scales this week to see if I could pick one up! :)

  • 48 Jessica F // Jun 24, 2010 at 2:38 pm

  • 50 Jenn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) // Jun 24, 2010 at 3:19 pm

  • 54 Brian // Jun 24, 2010 at 4:30 pm

    This kitchen scale would be so helpful! I’ve been making a lot of your recipes to start my baking career and I have always been thinking about getting one. I’m kind of a perfectionist and the thought that my measurements could be off bothers me. This scale looks like a serious kitchen tool. PERFECT!

  • 55 Charlene // Jun 24, 2010 at 4:51 pm

    I would love to win, I made lifetime on weight watchers a year ago and have maintained it, but a scale to weigh everything would be so wonderful.
    Thanks for the chance to win and have a great week-end!

    I have a digital scale but it is so old and the poor thing has dropped nummerous times – I don’t even know if it is weighing things correctly! I definitely need a new one!

    I want one!  Great Give-away Katy!

  • 70 Pearl // Jun 25, 2010 at 9:05 am

    Pie dough can be crumbly,
    and souffles can fall.
    Pick me for the kitchen scale,
    I would be the happiest of them all.

    Plus I commented on the fb page.

  • 71 Erin // Jun 25, 2010 at 9:20 am

  • 82 Lynn // Jun 26, 2010 at 10:18 am

    You would absolutely laugh at what I am using for an “accurate” kitchen scale right now. I need to use something like this digital scale instead.

  • 83 Sarah // Jun 26, 2010 at 12:49 pm

    Oh pick me!

  • 84 Lidia // Jun 26, 2010 at 8:30 pm

    I would love this. I have a MAJOR problem with portion control so this would be perfect. Thanks for the great giveaway :)

  • 90 Suzanne // Jun 28, 2010 at 6:36 am

    This scale rocks. This is the one thing I have left to buy to help with my portion control, I think I under estimate what i’m eating and I’m at a plateau right now.

    I’d love a scale! It is on my very long wish list as is the 13-week ICE baking class. I made your Oatmeal Lace Cookies this weekend and turned them into a more complex dessert. They are DELICIOUS and didn’t need extra adornment in the least.
