Measuring ingredients accurately is a critical step in the baking process. Every time you take your cup and you put it into the flour, you can actually add up to 3 tablespoons of flour to a measuring cup. Adding too much flour to a cake recipe can leave it dry and crumby. Unfortunately, it is much too easy to make this mistake and not even realize it when using a traditional measuring cup.
Mess-up the measuring process and you’ll end up with pie crusts that aren’t rollable, breads that are tough, and cakes that are like rocks!
Digital scales are the ultimate kitchen companion for accuracy and efficiency. It’s not only easier to measure flour with a digital scale, but it reduces clean-up. Measure all ingredients in a mixing bowl and eliminate the need to clean measuring cups.
