FoodServiceWarehouse.com helps you outweigh and outlast the competition with our selection of kitchen scales. These scales are more economically priced than their digital counterparts, and are not recommended for weights that need to be accurate for pricing, but are excellent in produce sections for customers to weight the produce before they decide that it the amount that want.
Our kitchen scales have large, easy to read dial gauges that accurately measure to within a few ounces. Be sure to adjust the alignment notch so the scale reads zero before measuring. To zero out a mechanical scale, there is typically a knob that needs to be rotated until the dial is pointing right at zero. This should be done daily, if not more, depending on how much use the scale gets throughout the day. Every morning, the scale should be calibrated to ensure proper weighing is taking place.
For processes that require accurate measurements within a hundredth of an ounce, a kitchen scale is not the best investment, but they are a good addition to the produce section of a grocery store. Add a few mechanical scales at the ends of aisles for customers to measure the contents of their bags. This is also a good idea in bulk grains and nuts sections as well. When customers are able to get exactly the quantity they need, they feel empowered and leave the store feeling much more positive.
