How Portion Scales Can Help You Control Portion Sizes

How Portion Scales Can Help You Control Portion Sizes

Portion control has been an often talked about topic in the food service industry for as long as I can remember. Every operator knows they should practice good portion control; every chain account that I’ve ever been in has procedures in place to make sure that things are getting measured. And yet so many operators still sacrifice consistency and throw their money away by not having a good portion control game plan in place for their enterprise. Hi, I’m Steve Ziegler, product expert at the WEBstaurant Store. Let me show you a few examples of how portion control can affect your business. The first thing I’d like to discuss is consistency. Not only can one person’s estimate of the right amount vary widely, but the problem only gets worse when you’re talking about more than one employee. For example, if I go into your sandwich shop and I receive this sandwich made by Joe, I’m probably going to be pretty happy. If later on I go in and get this sandwich made by Jack, not only am I going to be unhappy, but I’m probably going to complain about it. And the sad thing is, if this meat had been split evenly between these two sandwiches by using a scale, I probably would have been a very happy customer. So portion control is an important part of customer satisfaction. Next, and even more importantly, by not having portion control in place, you’re slowly robbing yourself blind. Here, let me show you. You see these two sandwiches being prepared here, I measured this one with 3 ounces of ham. This one I just eyeballed, and it looks right, doesn’t it? I made lots of sandwiches in my time and I’m a good estimator. But just in case, let’s go ahead and measure the meat on this sandwich. Well, I was a little bit off, that’s 4 ounces right there. Even though it looked the same, it’s very easy to be off by a good bit. Three to four ounces, that’s one ounce off, that’s 1/16th of a pound, that ham cost me five dollars a pound, now let’s think about this a little more carefully. Now 1/16th of a pound times $5 a pound, were only losing $0.31 cents a sandwich. But I serve 30 sandwiches a day 6 days a week, 52 weeks a year, which brings me to the fact that by the end of the year I have managed to lose $2,901.60. That is money that I’ve worked for, now I’ll never recoup. But if you’re a better estimator than me, let’s say you’re only off by an 1/8th of an ounce. With this same ham, you’re only going to lose $362.70. Which is just fine, because your kids really didn’t want that PlayStation that badly anyhow. Every chain restaurant has a portion control program in place because they’ve studied it, and they know it’s worth the effort. So put that money in your pocket, show your staff this video, and begin your portion control program today.

Save money for your business by learning how to control the sizes of the portions you serve! See how seemingly insignificant mistakes in portion size--such as being off by 1/8 of an oz.--can make a huge difference in your yearly profits.

Overall User Rating: Taylor TE10FT 11 lb. Compact Digital Scale ( 4.6 stars from 37 reviews )

    Best price you will find these accurate little scales. These scales are great for portioning high-cost items. We use them daily and they go up to 10 lbs!

    This taylor compact digital scale weighs very accurately and has worked well even after being dropped on several occasions and I would definitely buy again.

    from Golden Rule BBQ Posted on

    This is a handy small scale that can easily be converted to oz/ grams and lbs. I like that it has a plug as well.

    from Gluten Free Kids Posted on

    I bought this scale to replace one that was on the fritz. Very compact so it can be put away fairly easily. My only complaint is that sometimes it can be a little slow to update measurement. But its usually only a second. The metal plate is also removeable to clean which is very convenient.

    I purchased this item couple years ago , and it is still in a great working condition, it helped us a lot with the portion control.

    from Sizzlin'Grill Posted on

    I bought this Scale to weigh out all my pasta dishes so i could be consistant. The scale does exactly what it is supposed to do and is very simple to use!

    this is a handy little scale to have around. it's a little smaller than I expected, but it's effective, starts quickly, and measures accurately. We use it in our deli, but would also be good in a bakery.

    from Oak Hill Bulk Foods, Inc. Posted on

    This is an item that is used every day. We use it to weigh out our potato and pasta salad. Scale holds up very well.

    from Queen City Catering Posted on

    What a great addition to every kitchen. It allows you to set a tare weight so you don't have to subtract the weight of the container holding the ingredients. And I love that it weighs 10 pounds. Most small scales I've found only weight up to 5 pounds.

    This is a great little scale. The removable top makes it very easy to clean. It is also small enough to use anywhere. We use it to portion meats

    This scale is so-so if you tend to measure in gram wt. It does NOT measure tenths of grams. The sleep mode turns off the unit after a short period of inactivity whether using battery or DC power. That is a killer when you've only partially added your ingredients and need to step away and return later to resume.

    The Taylor TE 10c 10lb. Compact digital Scale. it is great for measuring out the same preportions every time.You can not beat the price, and you'll love it.

    from Harrison Familey Restaurant Posted on

    Great little scale, holding up pretty well so far, great value and the cooks appreciate having an easy to use item at their disposal, Would purchase again

    from Gator's Dockside Posted on

    This scale works perfect for measuring out all our hamburger patties and pre-portioned food in the morning. Lasted 6 months before needing a new battery.

    from Shamrocks Pub n Grill Posted on

    This is a great scale. This exact scale is probably in many kitchens nation wide. It is excellent for portioning out fresh fish filets and getting them spot on.

    Posted on

    This is a wonderful scale. Its simple and to the point. Its easy to clean light weight and fits into larger knife kits. this scale matches the quality of most scales in its price range.

    This is a great scale. The scale is very accurate. I have only needed to calibrate it once in 6 years of use. It is a great deal for the price.

    Posted on

    This product is a great value. We went through 2 Salters and another Taylor purchased in the local grocery or dept store and not one of the three lasted a month. This TE10C is being used in my commercial kitchen by my employees. It is designed for this environment, with the removable cleanable plate, easy to use 'clean wipe buttons' and an adequate capacity (10 Lb) greater than that which you could typically load something this small with. It is small enough that it sits on our prep station all the time.

    from Local Alternative Inc. Posted on

    This is a very small scale. I would not recommend this for a commercial kitchen. This would be great for a residential kitchen where it needs to be stored away.

    from Original Fried Pie Shop Posted on

    We have used several of these. Batteries last a long time, and they take a beating pretty well. Will probably order more in the future too.

    Posted on

    This is a very good scale. It gived fast and accurate readings everytime, and it's easy to clean. We did have a machanical scale before, the taylor TS5 and that one was a waste of money.

    Posted on

    Great scale for measuring items up to 10 pounds. We use this regularly in our restaurant for inventory control. It is easy to clean also.

    Posted on

    This is a great digital scale. I use this one for my bigger items, like burger portions and steak cuts. It works flawlessly, and without any burps. I love it.

    from The new haven cafe Posted on

    I've been shopping for a scale and I found this website and had a great price. If anybody needs a scale this is it. you can't go wrong with this. and a quick shipping from this site was a PLUS

    from quiznos Posted on

    This scale is good because it has a high weight capacity. Only problem is that when on battery power, it will turn off after only a few seconds. So be sure to keep an eye on the weight if you walk away to grab another ingredient.

    from Sugar Fixe LLC Posted on

    This is a fantastic kitchen scale! I have used many different brand names of scales for portioning out fish and meats but the Taylor TE10C is lightweight and accurate! Easy to clean if you get it dirty! Great price for a digital scale! Portion control will easily pay for this item in no time!!!

    This is a good scale for weighing baked goods. It measures both lighter and heavier baked goods. Indispensible if you are selling items by weight. Can plug in or run on battery, so is very portable.

    Posted on

    The scale has an auto-off feature to save battery power; however, there is an easy way to turn off the feature. Because I use it primarily to measure chocolate, I have to zero it out with whatever bowl I'm using to measure in. It does seem to eat battery power relatively quickly.

    from Mount Vernon Confections Posted on

    Other than a tendency to turn off after a few seconds between weighings, this scale is terrific. I especially appreciate that the stainless steel plate is removable for easy cleaning. Functions perfectly.

    Posted on

    These scales are great... we use them infrequently, so the price is right. I use them for everything from portion control planning to weighing bulk items received to ensure they're full cases.

    from Custom Confections Inc. Posted on

    this scale is great! easy to read, small enough to store, easy to wipe down, and easy to calibrate - runs on 9V batteries which you can buy through webstaurant for a great price!

    Posted on

    This scale was great. It did exaclty what it was supposed to and we use it regularly to weigh items at our store. The scale is very accurate.

    from Scratch Posted on

    I needed a digital scale for the kitchen so I decided to go with the Taylor TE10C digital scale. I really like it's small size because I can easily store it in my crammed drawer and the option of using either an AC adapter or the batteries for the "wireless" operation. The removable stainless steel surface is also a handy function since it makes it easy to rinse it without exposing the whole digital scale to the water. Another excellent feature is the ounce and gram mode: because different recipes call for different measuring units. I recommend this Taylor scale to any kitchen.

    Posted on

    This scale was exactly what we were looking for. It is easy to operate yet small enough. We measure all our salad ingredients as we make our salads every day.

    from Cafe 50 Posted on

    We used this scale for accutately measuring baking products and meats for sanwiches. Just having it has reduced our waste and improved the quality of our baked goods.

    Posted on

    This is the second scale we've had like this. The first one lasted 8+ years, so here's hoping that this one lasts just as long!

    from Zeppe's Pizzeria Posted on

    So far this item has been a great addition to my collection. It is easy to use and comes with a removable tray that makes cleaning easy. The A/C adapter is really nice to have as well. It is fairly compact and is able to fit in a fairly small footprint. The display is really easy to read as well. The 10lb. capacity is a really nice feature as well. So far I haven't come close to this limit.
