Yes, I love scales where you can place a muffin tin or sheet pan, and still be able to read!

A trick to do by, is to add a cake pan or flan ring on your scale that would fit, then place your tin or sheet pan on it, the added height makes the readings easier as it is less obstructed.

That’s a great Idea…I never thought of that.

i sure would love EACH OF YOU to own a MyWeigh KD-8000 which is a slight improvement to the KD-7000.  What I am most impressed about:  it reads SO FAST!!!!!!!!  I have never used the KD-7000, so i am unsure if it is slower or the same.

although i have invested hundreds of dollars on other brands and it is THE thing i can’t live without, i decided to give MyWeigh a shot. YOU WILL LOVE THEM.

i also have the MyWeigh MX-500 (similar to the MX-300), the accuracy is to the 0.1 gr, and it also reads ULTRA FAST.  it is so accurate that when i blow air it starts to register.  this little scale will be handy to verify the accuracy of my measuring spoons when using baking powder, baking soda, salt, etc.  this little scale also helps me verify how accurate my larger scales are.  i have installed my MX-500 under my kitchen cabinets, as the top cover slides out.

MyWeigh beats Salter, in my humble opinion.

an upside down bowl works too.

The kd7000 or kd8000 let you weight a muffin pan NO PROBLEM -)

These are made with a clear-line-of-sight risen weighing surface alike the 15 kg scale at the bakery.

Aint a stainless steel beauty, but in my opinion these look much nicer in person than the picture on their website. These kd’s were truly designed for us! Their electronics, functionality, and ergonomics are really comparable to the $500 lab scales!

Actually, your photo of the KD8000 doesn’t look too bad!

That looks like an awesome scale.  My scale, the Escali Pana, is only 9 months old.  But, the next time I need a scale, I will look into the MyWeigh.

I wouldn’t even try to bake without a scale. I am really spoiled.

I recently bought a gorgeous book, Baking: From My House To Yours ..all the recipes look delicious and rustic, which is what we like; but, I am planning on returning it because the recipes are in volume only
