Holiday Giftguide+GIVEAWAY: OXO Good Grips Food Scale!

Events / Giveaways / Partnerships

Happy hump day, Noshers! I can’t believe we’re already up to Day 5 of my Holiday Gift Guide!  Today’s Gift Guide item is one of my favorite products from one of my favorite kitchen supplies brands – OXO!

I first became enamored with OXO when I purchased my first OXO product – their angled measuring cup.  The measuring cup solved the age-old problem of pouring, crouching down to see if I had measured correctly, pouring, crouching down to see I had poured too much, pouring out, crouching down…well, you get the picture.  And if you’ve ever measured liquid ingredients in a conventional measuring up, you know exactly what I’m talking about! Thanks to OXO‘s ingenious designs (seriously, their products have been featured in one of my favorite NYC museums – the Cooper-Hewitt!), a multitude of kitchen tasks have been made much easier for countless chefs and bakers!  I have since purchased waaaay too many (or some would say “just enough”) OXO products because they are simply awesome 🙂  You may recall my giveaway earlier this year for the OXO Hand-held Mandoline Slicer!  In addition to the mandoline, scale and measuring cup, I also have their ice cream scoop, cherry-pitter, can opener, and…okay this is getting a little crazy. But let’s just say that list could have gone on for a while….

Today, I’m adding to my Holiday Gift Guide the OXO Good Grips 5-Pound Food Scale with Pull-Out Display.  This gadget is a staple in my tiny apartment kitchen, where space is at a major premium – I especially love it for baking when recipes call for ounce measurements :).  And since it is made by OXO, it has a ton of user-friendly design features, such as a pull-out display if you’ve got an over-sized bowl, super large numbers on an illuminated background, and my fave – the zeroing function so you can measure multiple ingredients in the same bowl.  Several people who have cooked or baked with me have commented on how awesome the scale is, so I knew it would make a good Gift Guide addition!   But don’t take my word for it (can you tell me favorite show used to be Reading Rainbow?) – win one for yourself!

For your chance to win your very own OXO Good Grips 5-Pound Food Scale with Pull-Out Display, enter via the Rafflecopter widget below.  This 52 second video provides a tutorial on how to enter a giveaway for Rafflecopter newbies! There are 6 methods of entry, with the first method (commenting on this blog post) being mandatory and the rest just extra gravy!

    Hmmm . . . that’s a toughie since I love both. But I’m probably more of a cook since I’ve had some baking fails but never a cooking fail that I can recall 😉

    I’m more of a cook but love to eat baked goods. Does that count? This scale would definitely help my baking skills (of which i have none).

    I’m the baker in the house, while my husband is the cook. I am a bit erratic in the kitchen and tend to just eyeball/throw ingredients together, while my husband is very precise and scientific. He would LOVE something like this!

    I’m definitely more of a cook. I don’t have the patience for the exact science of it.

    Baker! Although I tend to do it far less than cooking…

    I’ve always wanted to try using a scale when I bake! I’ve heard a few friends rave about the difference it makes.

    I’ve always been a little OCD when it comes to making things in the kitchen, so I think that really works in my favor when it comes to baking. I was gifted a food scale several years ago and unfortunately it didn’t survive our most recent move. I’ve been meaning to buy a replacement but if I happened to win one that would be fabulous!

    I”m definitely a baker, not a cook. I think it’s way easier not to mess up, but I don’t think anyone else agrees with me.

    I love doing both, but if I had to pick I would say baker. I’m in charge of desserts for all family parties.

    I’m more of a cook because it’s more forgiving. But I love using the scale to to keep portions at bay. 🙂

    that is a tough question….i think i would say baker, since I usually indulge with baked goods and cook healthy food

    This would be a great tool for making European recipes, what with their gram measurements for everything!

    For many years the answer was baker. But in the past few years I have really upped my game in the cooking department, so my answer is cook. I love both, but I find cooking gives me more freedom to innovate.

    I like to do both, but I’m a better baker than a cook, so I’ll say I’m a baker.

    I think I’m equally a baker and a cook. I love both!
