WORTH ITS WEIGHT

Food & Drink - - TREND SPOTTING -

Pro­fes­sional bak­ers and pas­try chefs de­pend on the ac­cu­racy of scales for con­sis­tent breads and sweets. Now that bak­ing books are in­creas­ingly list­ing mea­sure­ments in both vol­umes and met­ric weights, Cana­di­ans are fi­nally com­ing around to the pre­ci­sion of kitchen scales. Be­yond bak­ing, scales also come in hand for por­tion­ing meat­balls, and evenly di­vid­ing dough and bat­ters. Both OXO (from $39, ama­zon.ca) and Es­cali (from $59.99, cook­store.ca) make slim re­li­able mod­els that can be stored just about any­where. Once you dis­cover the joys of a dig­i­tal scale, you’ll won­der how you lived without it.

FOR: Home bak­ers and any sci­ence-minded cooks.
