Ozeri Kitchen Scale Review and Giveaway

I am always on the lookout for new products and gadgets for the kitchen, so I was happy to see some of the unique products that Ozeri offers. I admit that I am not that great of a cook, but I do like to bake when I have time. One of the most important parts of baking for me is to make sure the ingredients are measured correctly and I have exactly the right amount of ingredients to go into the mix. I have read about skipping the use of measuring cups and simply making the recipe by weight, but I have never had a kitchen scale to do that with, so I was excited when Ozeri agreed to send me
a kitchen scale to review.

About the Company: Ozeri has been known as a supplier of finely crafted digital technology products that are used in specialty hotels, vacation resorts, and luxurious destinations across the globe. They are now branching out to the consumer market with the same superior products that are well-made, durable, sleek, and stylish. Instead of focusing on marketing and advertising costs which are relayed in the price of products to consumers, Ozeri uses the relationships they have built with guests at hotels who have used their products as a way to market their products. This means lower cost products for the consumer, but still a product that is high-quality and modern. They offer kitchen and bathroom products, as well as Tungsten rings, fitness products, and digital lifestyle and decor products.

My Review: I received the Ozeri Touch Professional Digital Kitchen Scale (17.6 lb Edition), Tempered Glass in Elegant Black for review. When I first opened the package I noticed that it was packed securely, and it also came with a complete manual for use instructions. I decided to look it over as soon as I opened it to see how it worked and inspect the design of the scale. It appeared well-made and I liked the black, stylish look of the scale. It has a very sleek and modern look that fits in well with my other kitchen appliances that are silver, black, and white. The most surprising thing about the scale is how lightweight it is. It would be very easy to transport if you were a chef or pastry chef who needed to take your tools with you when you were working. It also features a compact size, so it can easily be stored in a drawer when not in use.

Scale is sleek, lightweight, and thin.

Here are some of the features of the scale:
  • Tempered glass surface that is four times stronger than regular glass
  • LCD screen
  • Displays weight in kilograms, grams, ounces, and pounds
  • Tare feature 
  • Weighs anything from .01 ounce to 17.6 pounds
  • Long-lasting lithium batteries and easy to access battery compartment
  • Four precision GFX sensors
I have learned more about kitchen scales since receiving this scale for review, so I have learned that the Tare feature is incredibly important. With the Tare feature, the scale will automatically subtract the container weight from the total weight, so you only get the results of the weight of the actual ingredient being measured. I did try out the scale and found it very easy to use. You can simply press the touch sensitive button to change the display weight and place an item on the scale. It quickly reads the weight and displays it on a bright, LED screen.

My children wanted to try this scale using everything they could find.

My children also thought the scale was interesting and they really wanted to try it out. I let them weigh a few things around the house, and they were so excited to see how much certain things weighed. I realized that for us, this was definitely going to be used as more than a kitchen scale for cooking or baking purposes. This will be used as a teaching tool to help my children learn more about weights and measurements, It is so easy to use that my children quickly figured out how to work the scale, and they truly enjoyed being able to learn how much things weighed.

Overall, I find the Ozeri Touch Professional Digital Kitchen Scale to be high-quality and to be well-made. I look forward to using it more in the future.
