Commercial Grade Weight Scale Buying Information and Resources

Digital scales are used in many applications involving food and restaurants. For years we've been providing our customers with durable commercial quality food scales with or without printer. You can find items like professional bakery scales, digital commercial kitchen scale, quality bench scales, industrial quality food scale, hanging scales, ingredient scales, portion scales, pricing scales, top loading dial scales and much more.

One of the selling features we like to mention to our customers is that we have lots of experience recommending restaurant quality digital food scales and we are not under contract to only sell one brand of scale. This means we can recommend the right scale for your specific needs and not just try to push a certain brand to you. So if whether you're a small family owned bakery or a large food manufacturing facility, we can provide you with quality weighing components. Contact us today and let us know what your requirements are and what ingredients you're looking to measure. Also browse our site or contact us if you're looking for certain items like NSF or NTEP Certified Scales.

Are you using a Postal Scale to Weigh Ingredients and Food Portions for Your Restaurant?

We see this a lot with certain customers looking to save money. It can work for awhile but often the scales don't last. The thought process is often the digital scales are cheap enough it's not a huge deal to replace if they break. The problem is that this tends to become a revolving door of replacement scales over and over.

But, you could just purchase a good quality stainless steel bench scale and it often will last for many years of reliable service. We know of a popular pizza restaurant chain that uses Doran Scales when adding ingredients to their pizza prep. Trust us, we've sampled the finished product (many times) and the quality and consistency of their pizzas is exceptional.

Ideas to Extend the Life of Your Digital Food Service Scales

One of the common themes that we often hear from restaurant owners and managers is that the "expensive" digital ingredient scales don't last. Nobody wants to spend hundreds of dollars on ingredient scales just to have the item break after just a few months of use.

A few suggestions to consider... often these pizza scales are placed into service and the hourly employee(s) use the scale throughout the day, unsupervised. Damage to the scale occurs and nobody knows what happened! We've observed and heard stories of employees taking their frustrations out on the equipment. We have some pretty tough scales but they can only take so much... Our suggestion is (1) talk with employees & explain the costs and how scales help us do the job easier and affect the store profitability and (2) to place a camera above the work space where the scale is located. These days it's not that expensive to place a camera in the kitchen area. Accountability and proof can make a big difference.

Commercial Food Scales

Detecto PZ series wireless ingredient scales provide a wireless connection between the scale base and indicator, which means cables never get in the way for busy food prep stations in commercial kitchens. The PZ series pizza scales feature a 14" x 14" stainless steel platform, 30-pound or 60-pound capacity, large 1" high LCD readout, quick response time, wall-mounting bracket, and NSF certification.
