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.

    scale small great little weighing control light measure perfect portions

    We keep this scale on hand incase our digital scale dies without batteries to replace them at the time. This scale requires no power and is still simple to use.

    Nice backup scale

    Fantastic for small food items and does seem to measure accurately when you adjust the back circular knob to be zero for the container you add. It does waver a little so be sure you have it on a flat surface!

    nice scale for weighting food very simple

    I don't feel that anything I measure on here is accurate. Same thing will weigh different each time i use it. Compared to digital scales and other analog scales I have this is way off. I guess for the price I cant expect too much. Will put the money towards another digital scale next time.

    This Taylor light duty analog portion control scale is just okay. The measurement is a little off in the beginning but you can adjust it so it will measure correctly the next time.

    Ok food scale

    This is great for weighing portions out. Definitely recommended. It is a money saving device. Weigh out French fries or whatever your need is. Over time you will notice a cost difference for the better.

    from The Diner Posted on

    This scale works good for smaller ingredients such as chopped onions and green peppers, sliced olives, etc. Easy to clean. Need something a little bigger for weighing cheese.

    from Muncheez Pizzeria Posted on

    small enough to hide in the kitchen yet does a great job at measuring small items for portion control.... accurate as well. nice purchase at at a price that is so cheap.

    Durable, functional scale for small items. We use it for portioning meats & cheeses in small amounts. Great price for the product, long lasting & a daily necessity.

    from Bada Bean Posted on

    Need something sturdier as it needs to be handled with much care to last a while and be accurate. Didn't last long for us until we have to get a different brand. When it says light duty, it seems very light duty.

    Great little scale super for potion control and weighing out ingredients when I am baking. Its light weight easy to clean and the top basket comes off to make storing in tight places helpful

    This value priced item is going to save my business so much money. The attached weighing dish is the perfect size for weighing smaller items and French fries!

    from The Colonial Hotel Posted on

    After reading Ruhlman's book, Ratio, I decided I should at least try to measure things like flour and sugar by weight to see if it could improve my baking. It turns out I am pretty heavy-handed when measuring flour by volume, which explains why dough recipes never seemed to recommend enough water. I am very happy with this little scale. It fits in a kitchen drawer, is easy to clean, and has helped me improve my bread and cake baking from nearly inedible to nearly delicious! For an occasional home baker this is just perfect!
