How Portion Scales Can Help You Control Portion Sizes

How Portion Scales Can Help You Control Portion Sizes

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.

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.

Overall User Rating: Taylor TE32FT 2 lb. Compact Digital Scale ( 4.7 stars from 9 reviews )

    this is the perfect size scale for smaller items. the baker uses it often to measure ingredients accurately. we also use at the Deli so as not to over portion the meats.

    from Becker College/Chartwells Posted on

    This digital scale has worked well for us. It appears to be perfectly accurate. We like the size of it. It's easy to move around and read the numbers.

    Reliable and easy to use for the price. Gives the exact measurement every time. No quirks about it and with a removable top it is easy to clean

    from NORTH SIDE GRILLE Posted on

    I have two of these at each of my two locations and can tell you that they are a touch inconsistent (though not that bad considering the price) and that the AC adapter makes all the difference in the world. I use them for portion control in sandwich building and while they're running on battery it can take a few seconds or more for the 'tare' option to engage. When the rush is on, there simply isn't time to wait and see whether or not the scale is going to clear and when before moving on to the next topping. If you have a circuit available to plug them in (I do at one of my locations) the problem is significantly lessened.

    This is the perfect compact digital scale for making small batches of baked goods! It can measure in ounces or grams!! Good for small measurements of spices too!!

    These are great to have when measuring out small quantities of items. It can measure grams which is very nice for scaling out baking recipes.

    This scale works great and is annoying at the same time. Its accurate when compared to my certified scale but the auto shut off feature can be frustrating. If you disable the feature battery life is very short. Wish I could use the included AC adapter but I don't have a nearby outlet.

    Great electronic scale. I use this exact model for all my pasta and rice portioning. It tares very easily, and is incredibly accurate. And priced to sell.

    from The new haven cafe Posted on

    A great item for portion control and bulk-slicing weights. Seems very accurate and is easy to use. Keeps us from guessing about how thick our slices are.
