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.

    scale tare Great moving cheaper scales accurate button charge easy

    This is a good all around scale. Seems very accurate and holds a charge for a very impressive amount of time. It can be difficult to tare because it is very sensitive and won't tare while moving, so you have to push the tare button without moving the scale and this can be a challenge for a klutz like me.

    from The Sawhorse Cafe, LLC Posted on

    Great scale. Easily switch between measurements. Have only had to recalibrate once or twice, despite constantly moving from one location to another. Charge lasts a very long time as well. I use daily and it goes months without needing to be recharged.

    from Hernandez Mendoza LLC Posted on

    Great scale! You won't find a cheaper legal for trade scale that is this solid anywhere.... We purchased two, and plan on grabbing a few more just incase they disappear one day!

    from Ecobain Gardens Posted on

    Great scale, quick to read and accurate. I wanted one with 2 decimal points on the oz and a tare button. Love how you get to level it on your counter, how the tray comes off for easy cleaning. the display is totally flat, again easy to wipe clean. I use the tare feature alot so i hope i dont wear the botton out like i did on my past 2 cheap scales. This is well worth it's price. I would highly recommend. I use it for portioning out dough balls and weighing bakery ingredients. I did however cover the computer ports on the side with electrical tape so that flour dust does not get in them.
