A moms review:
We received a MIRA Glass Digital Kitchen Scale to review and utilized it in both our kitchen and homeschool room. The scale has an 11 lb capacity so it is perfect for just about any project. Its terrific small, slim size makes it easy to deploy at just the right moment, without taking up too much work space. It looks great displayed on the counter or it can easily be stored in a cabinet, drawer or shelf. The scale is about the size of a tablet so it is very portable and light enough to move from counter to counter or from room to room. The small rubberized feet on all four corners provide a secure resting grip on any surface. The scale comes with a 2 year warranty and uses 4 x AAA batteries (included)!
It has a stylish design that is very modern yet basic enough to fit with any kitchen decor. The extra large, backlit LCD display provides clearly defined units of measure in bright bold numbers (no squinting required). There are two easy to access bio-static, sensitive touch buttons to either side of the display which are clearly labeled. One of the buttons will turn the scale on/off and enable the tare feature. The other button will let you select your unit of measurement. The scale provides measurements in pounds, kilograms, grams, and ounces (lb./oz, kg/g, fl.oz., ml). The buttons also function great with flour coated fingers and wet hands. Clean up is a breeze. The tempered glass surface looks great and provides a sanitary, easy to clean surface. The glass is 4 times stronger than normal glass. We received a brown scale but the scale is also available in black, red, blue, white and grey.
The scale was terrific in the kitchen made measuring out meat to freeze, recipe ingredients and more a breeze. And as I mentioned above we not only utilized the MIRA Scale in the kitchen but also our homeschool room too for some math and science fun. Yes my children were a little excited about the scale when it arrived (they thought it was a tablet at first). It was very easy for the kids to use (ages 6 and 8). The tare function allowed accurate measurements to be made during the most ambitious of science experiments. While the choice of units allowed for smaller more precise readings. The kids learned a new science term - TARE! The tare function allows the scale to ignore the weight of plates and dishes, only weighing the contents inside! And they also learned some new units of measurement too. They had lots of fun exploring and playing with the scale and it has become a part of our homeschool science and math lessons!
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
