OXO Product Review & Giveaway!



When I made these muffins this past weekend, I was able to use my new OXO food scale!  I've been wanting a food scale for a long time and was so excited that OXO sent me two food scales: one to review and one to give away to one of you!

Having a scale in my kitchen has been so useful.  I can finally weigh my chocolate to get the exact amount a recipe calls for, I've been able to weigh my fresh veggies for each recipe, and now I can finally cook from some of my cookbooks that only list the ingredients by weight!  A food scale is also really helpful if you're trying to watch what you eat and are weighing your protein, etc.  


I really like that this scale is digital with numbers that are large enough to read easily.  Another handy feature of the OXO food scale is that the display unit can pull out so you're still able to read it when you're measuring large objects. Also that little rectangle on the right side of the display lets you know how much capacity is left on the scale.  I've been really pleased with this scale, and with how little room it takes up on my counter!

And now to the good part - an OXO 5 lb food scale for one of you!  To enter, please leave a comment on this post - any comment!  If you are a GFC follower of this blog you may leave an additional comment saying so.  Winner will be chosen randomly and announced Tuesday, April 3.  Limited to those with a U.S. mailing address, please.


Disclosure:  I received two food scales from OXO for free to review as a part of the OXO Blogger Outreach program.  However, the opinions stated above are my own.
