About 28 years ago, my husband and I went to a well advertised Crate and Barrel sale. I don’t remember the details or why it was so fabulous, but I do remember standing in a VERY long line for hours – a line that wove around two buildings. I also remember we had a ton of fun interacting with the other people in line. We had no idea what we wanted to get there. We just knew we had to go! There were people with specific lists of items they were going to bolt to.
Unfortunately by the time our turn came to enter the store, the pickins’ were pretty slim. We managed to get a few plastic scoops and this:
This little beauty has served me well for 28 years. We use it, obviously, for measuring ingredients but we also weigh letters to make sure we don’t need extra postage. It’s handy. But kind of cumbersome to store.
So imagine my excitement today when this came in the mail: A digital kitchen scale the size of an iPad! It really does look like one too! So fun!
There are adjustments for liquid and dry measurements with just a quick touch of the button. And storage won’t be a problem at all. I’m excited to start using it.
Small, lightweight, easy to store
It’s very “touchy” so measurements will be precise
Can do dry and liquid measurments
It’s pretty touchy (that’s both a pro and a con.)
Will need to replace batteries
“It’s a little small to stand on” (my daughter’s response when she saw it)
