## What are the steps to using a scale to weigh ingredients?

Turn your kitchen scale ON and toggle the “unit” button until you are set to the unit of measure that you need (oz, grams, etc.) Place your mixing bowl (or other bowl that you’ll be measuring your ingredient into) on the scale. TARE the scale by hitting the “tare”. Your display should read “0”.

## How do you read digital scales?

To weigh yourself using a digital or dial scale, place the scale on a flat surface and step onto it. Then, simply read the numbers to find out how much you weigh. Alternatively, if using a balance beam scale, step on the scale, adjust the weights, and add up the numbers.

## Why is my scale giving me different readings?

#1 Every time a digital scale is moved it needs to be calibrated. Initializing the scale resets the internal parts allowing the scale to find the correct “zero” weight and ensure accurate readings. If the scale is moved and you do NOT calibrate it, you are likely to see fluctuations in your weight.

## How do you weigh baking ingredients?

To measure ingredients by weight, start by placing your mixing bowl on top of your scale and hitting the “tare” or “zero” button. This will account for the weight of the bowl and set your scale’s counter back to zero. Now add your flour by spooning it into the bowl until it hits 22.5 ounces.
