The TS32, TS5, TS25, and TS50 Mechanical Portion Control Scales from Taylor offer portability, NSF approval, and reliability in a small and inexpensive package. Today I’m going to take a few moments to show you some of the basic features, and the initial setup of these scales. When your Taylor mechanical scale arrives at your door, you’re going to want to let it come up to your indoor room temperature. Especially if it is hot or cold outside, and this is because these things are spring operated and springs change their shape with extreme heat or cold. When it is up to room temperature, the first thing you’ll do is align your rotating dial so the zero graduation sits right inside this triangular notch in the middle of the dial. Once it’s there, you’re going to take a weight (I’m just going to use some Regal sea salt) and place it on, let it come to a rest, take it off, and repeat this three times. Now that we’ve done that, we can look to see if this is precisely at zero. I can see it’s just a little bit off, so what I’m going to do is turn the unit around. You can see there is a brass knob there that you can turn back and forth in order to precisely tune your needle to zero. I’m going to do that right there, and there we have it! Now I’d like to show you the tear feature utilizing the rotating dial. The first thing we’ll do is put our container on the platform. You can see how the needles moved. I’m going to rotate the dial so zero lines up exactly with the needle. Next thing I’ll do is put my product in the container; in this case I have some tomatoes. Now you can see we have an accurate reading of just the tomatoes.

    It never worked right out of the box, which was disappointing. Plus it costs more to return to WebRestaurantstore than it is worth. Oh well...
    Thank you for the review! We’re sorry this item is defective. This item is covered under a 1 year warranty, a Customer Solutions Representative will contact you about this shortly!
    This failed pretty quickly. It doesn't zero out anymore and it never really was accurate. If you need precise portion control, don't buy this. Really, don't buy it for any reason. Buy one of the other scales they have here.
    Thank you for your review, Jamil Zainasheff! We are sorry this Taylor TP16 16 oz. Compact Mechanical Portion Control Scale has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
    This scale has held up for us so far. Only used to portion once a day about 40 items at a time. Small size so it doesn't take up too much room in the kitchen.
    Great scale. Sturdy. Good quality. Weighs to the exact measurement not just to a rounded number. Really happy with this product. Works really well for my store.
    Did not hold up to rigorous use, spend the extra money and get a nice digital scale. Would work fine for light use but not everyday use.
    These scales work fine when used sparingly. However, they are not a replacement for commercial quality food scales. If you are expecting this to replace a high end scale, you will be disappointed. If you are a small business that only occasionally weighs out ingredients, this will be fine.
    Love these little scales. They are very small and not big and bulky. We use them in our pozza shop. The big ones are hard to reach around.
    this 16 oz. analog portion control scale works just fine for us. we use it for rice portions, pasta portions, deli meats etc. great value product.
    These scales are alright, but drop the thing once and it's done! I moved on to digital scales sometimes these things got broken in under 1 week :(
    Thank you for the review! We’re sorry this has not worked well for you. Please remember our Customer Solutions team is there to help should you encounter any issues.
    Perfect size for a food truck operation. This little scale does not take up a lot of room and it allows me to perfectly weigh my burgers to ensure I keep control of my food costs.
    This scale is perfect for weighing portions of cheese. That is the primary use in our cafe for the Taylor scale. It is priced right, functional and accurate.
    This is a perfect little scale for home use. I own a concession trailer and this was not the best option for me just because anything I have has to be able to take some abuse. Still better than what you will find in department stores. Perfect for a home kitchen.
    Really nice scale at a really great price. We originally purchased it to weigh out coffee beans, but the platform is a little small so we decided to use it to portion deli meats.
    I love this portioning scale. It is extremely economical and durable. These scales are more expensive on other sites. Great for portioning food to help with food cost.
    This is such a great classic scale! It has lasted us a while before we had to fix it, but it is so easy to use!
    The Taylor Compact Analog portion Control Scale is great. We love it because it helps us to weigh out hamburgar patties so they are thw same every time. Easy storage.
    This scale is ideal for my hamburger patties. Its great for weighing out small beef portions for stew or slice pork chops as well. Great price.
    The compact analog portion control scale is a great thing to have at our store. We use it to weigh different items and it is very accurate in its readings. It is small enough to store well and doesn't take up a lot of space.
