You followed the recipe to a "T". The oven temperature and baking time were both exact; all the ingredients were at the proper temperature. Everything turned out OK but you expected more. The taste and texture were a little off. How can this be? You did everything you were supposed to do! It's really not your fault! Baking is an exact science. If you have too much of one ingredient and too little of another, things will change and the end result will be a dessert dilemma. Bakers have found it is more precise to weigh ingredients for baking than to measure them, so you need a tool that confirms all your ingredients are measured in the correct amounts. What could possibly turn you into the pastry chef you dream to be?! The 3890 Digital Scale with Measuring Cup by Taylor!
EASE OF USE
Since it is more precise to weigh ingredients for baking than to measure them, the Taylor 3890 Digital Scale with Measuring Cup will take the guess work out of your ingredients! Your recipes calls for 1/3 cup of milk, 2 cups of flour; you try to be exact eyeing the lines on the measuring cup but who knows for sure? The 3890 does! Keep adding flour into the cup and it will tell you, by the weight, once you have 2 cups of the flour in the measuring cup. Same goes for the milk. From the weight of the milk the scale will tell you when you really have 1/3 of a cup. The 3890 automatically converts 5 ingredients from ounces (weight) to cups (volume): flour, sugar, milk, water and oil. It's very easy to use. Place the scale on a flat surface then press the ON/OFF tare button on the handle of the measuring cup. Press the M button located below the LCD readout and choose the ingredient: sugar, flour, scale, water, milk or oil. Press U on the lower button to choose the unit of measure: cups, pounds/ounces, grams, fluid ounces or milliliters. Pour your first ingredient into the large 4 cup capacity measuring cup - the weight is displayed in the digital readout. Instead of having to empty the cup and clean it, just hit the tare button and you can add the second ingredient to be weighed, then the third, and so on and so on! Before you're done, all of your ingredients are all weighed properly in one container and ready to move on to the mixer! Besides baking, the unit is also a standard kitchen scale that can be used to weigh anything in your kitchen.
The 3890 Digital Scale with Measuring Cup is made of easy to clean plastic, 8" x 5.5" overall size: 5.5" across with a 1.5" LCD display. The 3890 is a precision electronic weighing instrument so the base and handle cannot be submerged in water. The measuring cup vessel needs to be cleaned by hand. The unit IS NOT dishwasher safe.
