Good Digital Scale
« on: September 12, 2006, 10:17:29 PM »
Someone on the NY Pizza thread asked for recommendations on an inexpensive digital scale.  I have been very happy with the Polder 933-90 that I ordered from Amazon.com.

http://www.amazon.com/Polder-933-90-Digital-11-Pound-Kitchen/dp/B0002EXVJG/sr=1-10/qid=1158113578/ref=sr_1_10/102-0988725-3397765?ie=UTF8&s=kitchen

Note that the scale qualifies for free "Super Saver" shipping.

Ya know, you really have to be careful on these threads.  Bakers percents? Pizza screens? Peels? Stones? Tiles? YIKES... This is becoming quite an investment. I just got my scale last week. Sure makes a lot more sense now for tweaking my dough recipes. 

My gut sure isn't complaining though.

I wonder what I've spent on this so far?

The thing to keep in mind with a digital scale is that it can be used for other things, too.  I've also used mine (the one I recommended) when I started this thread. as a postal scale.  You could even weigh your kid on it for the first few weeks...   :)  The pizza stone I bought for $38.00 also can be used to bake bread -- probably not anymore difficult than pizza to make and you avoid chemicals, hydrogenated soybean oil, etc.

 :-D Yeah that's how I justified my $60 digital scale to my wife. So far it's only seen pizza ingredients. Now the pizza peel is another story... that easily doubles as a Cathy's whip for some bedroom pizza fun!

In addition to my pizza habit, I own two Triumph cars; a 1960 TR3 and a 1980 TR8.  With a serious pizza making habit, as with old cars, it's better not to keep receipts or try to tally the costs.
