It's always nice to find an appliance that merges one necessity with the other. It saves time, effort, and money when you can use one thing to do multiple tasks. Learning how to cook can be a daunting challenge, but with the proper tools and accessories, anyone can cook. Having the capability to properly weigh foods and monitor temperatures goes a long way in the kitchen. As cooks experiment with kitchen tools, eventually they find some items that are indispensable. Many would be lost without the aid of a kitchen scale and a thermometer.
The Breville ikon Kitchen Scale combines these two items into one sleek design. The scale has a 7.5-inch hygienic stainless-steel weighing platform and displays results on an LCD screen accurate to 0.1 ounce or 1 gram. The included probe thermometer is used for measuring temperature ranges from 32 degrees Fahrenheit to 302 degrees. When the probe is not plugged into the unit, ambient temperature is displayed. Other features include a timer, automatic shut-off, and programmable alarm.
The scale has a maximum capacity of 11 pounds (or 5 kilograms) and measures 9.5 inches by 7.5 inches, with a height of just over an inch. Available for $49.99 at Bed Bath & Beyond, the combination device is an easy and friendly way to dive deeper into the kitchen.
