Food service scales are used to weigh food portions or inventory in a commercial kitchen environment. Three common types of scales are hanging, portion control, and receiving. Hanging scales have hooks that items are hung from to be weighed. Portion control scales have platforms that ingredients or food portions are placed upon to weigh. Receiving scales check the accuracy of inbound inventory to verify that the ordered weight matches the received weight. The scales can be mechanical with dials or electronic with digital displays. They are commonly made of steel, stainless steel, aluminum, or some combination thereof.
