GIVEAWAY - Win a 5 lb. Food Scale from OXO!



Boy was I excited when I was selected to participate in the OXO Blogger Outreach Program recently.  As part of the program, they sent me one 5 lb. Food Scale with Pull-Out Display to put through its paces, and a second one to giveaway to one lucky reader!!!

A food scale is one of those things that I've been wanting to purchase for a while now, but for some reason or another just haven't gotten around to it.    They come in handy in the kitchen in so many situations.

There are several things that I love about this particular OXO scale:

1.  It's small, slim and doesn't take up a lot of room in my kitchen. This is great, because cabinet space real estate is getting harder and harder to come by around here!
2.  The digital display is easy to read, with large numbers and an illuminated background.
3.  If you're measuring something in a large bowl, you can pull out the display so that you can still see it.  This is a really great feature and avoids large objects covering the numbers.
4.  There's a handy little capacity indicator on the display, which lets you know when you're getting close to the maximum weight the scale will allow.

As far as cons go, I haven't found many.  If I'm just being VERY picky, I would say that the pull-out display doesn't always just snap right back into place.   Although, this hasn't been a problem for me.  Again, that's just if you want me to be picky!

So, how do you win this fabulous scale?  It's easy!

Gosh, I'm just so excited for abundant fresh produce! I guess one of the things I'm looking forward to the most is fresh tomatoes! That's one thing that just doesn't come close to tasting as good in the off season.

Looking forward to the fresh green beans, squash, bell peppers, jalapenos and tomatoes from our inaugural container garden! We will definitely have to go get some fresh, local blueberries from the farmer's market too.
