Taylor TS Mechanical Portion Control Scales

Get portability, NSF approval, and reliability in a small and inexpensive package through the Taylor TS Mechanical Portion Control Scales! This video will walk you through the initial set up of your scale as well as how to use the tare function.

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.

    Really good and sturdy scale. It is made out of a good sturdy material that is easy to clean so don't have to worry if putting food on it.
    this portion scale is used for us to control portion size on a variety of items, it does exactly what it is supposed to do for us to control food cost
    This item is extremely efficient for consistent portioning. It is easy to read and use making this task faster and more efficient. The stainless steel material makes this product durable.
    We use this portion scale to weigh out of coffee beans we sell. It is easy to assemble when it arrived. Great price and very durable.
    Love how you can change the dial on this scale and that you do not have to worry about calibrating it if the measurement is thrown off.
    Nice and sturdy. Very happy. Thought it was going to be something cheaper quality. Can definitely handle five pounds and not get wobbly and throw the calibration.
    This is a durable and easy to read 5 pound scale. It has a knob to zero it out if you have a bowl on it.
    This scale worked for about two months. Then one day it wouldn't weigh correctly and sticks when you try to use it. It's not even three months old yet.
    Thank you for your review! We're sorry to hear your scale isn't working properly. A Customer Solutions Representative will remain in contact until the issue has been resolved.
    The Taylor 5 LB Analog Portion Scale is a nice alternative to a digital scale which we felt was not as accurate because it would get knocked around in the kitchen.
    this is our go to kitchen scale for measuring....it is always reliable, easy to clean up, and stable with weights. good value and performs as well as more expensive scales.
    We use the scale around four times a day. At first it took us while to calibrate it, but once we figured it out, it was easy to use.
    this is a dream. i needed a scale and found it right away. it is always on the money. never has to be calibrated. Thanks
