  • MY WEIGH KD-8000 Digital Baker's Scale

    Anyone using this scale? The baker's percentage feature looks really useful.

    Haven't found it available locall here, but I can get it via eBay.

    Heliman,
    I use the 5kg scale in 1 gram increments which has proved more than satisfactory for all the pizza and baking that I have done, A 4-5kg batch of dough is a lot of pizzas and my mixer can handle up to 10kg.
    These scales are quite cheap $20-40 in most stores and discount places with all the functions needed, eg tare for when adding the 5g salt, 3g yeast, 5g sugar etc.

      I have got two digital scales but I have found that they only measure in whole grams, not say .6 grams which I need for scaling.

      I am looking at getting one of the KD-8000s as, apart from the baker's percentage function it also does well for all the other features like tare and part grams. It seems to be a robust product too so should last for a few years.

      The "scaling" feature is pretty good for working backwards from the amount of dough required (I go with 227 gram balls), though I found a good calculator right here on FB that most of the hard work and allows you to use a standard digital scale to make the dough.

      What is unclear with the calculator though is why it varies quite considerbaly in water/flour ratio when you change a simple element like instant yeast to fresh yeast. The learning continues....

        Rossco,
        I find that measuring to within 1 gram is quite adequate, especially when mixing a kilogram dough mix, double, or even quad mixes. Trying to get a decimal part of a gram is too fiddly and I find it irrelevant in mixes over 1000 grams.
