when taking ROSE’S heavenly CAKES: Double Chocolate Whammy Groom’s Cake (page 419), i discovered a new function available on kitchen scales: memory recall.
if you prefer to run your kitchen scale plugged to AC electricity, then you don’t have to worry about the scale shutting itself off too fast. but most of us, prefer to run our kitchen scale with batteries, so it is portable and easy to store.
traditional auto-shut-off kitchen scales will zero out. the memory function will remember the last reading and take it from there!
