The world's best chefs recommend you weigh ingredients when baking, but what to do when all your recipes use the standard volume measurements, such as cups and tablespoons? The Kitchen Scale app lets you quickly and easily check how much certain ingredients should weigh. Just select an ingredient, tell the scale how much the recipe calls for (support for both US and metric units), and Kitchen Scale will tell you how much it should weigh. Then just measure out that amount on your kitchen scale! Kitchen Scale also provides convenient unit conversion so you can quickly convert between units.
- Choose between several ingredients for baking, in addition to popular fruits, nuts and seeds
- Specify your measurement in either US or metric units, such as cups, teaspoons, fl oz, milliliters, and more
- See what your ingredient weighs in grams, ounces, or pounds
- Quickly see a conversion chart converting the amount you put in to other popular volumetric formats

Ratings and Reviews
Not what I needed
It measures limited items and does not weigh it; rather shows the conversations. Does not do so for meats (which is why I needed it). I'm giving it 3 stars because I can see where it would be useful, but only for certain things.
Awesome - best in its class
I started weighing my ingredients two years ago, based on recommendations from friends. There are websites that help calculate the weights for measurements for different ingredients, but it's annoying and silly bringing my laptop into the kitchen with me, and none of them work well on the iPhone's small screen. So... In comes Kitchen Scale. I just baked a super moist red velvet cake using this app to weigh the ingredients - it came out perfect!!!!
User Friendly & Convenient
This app is very useful for converting volume measurements (tsp, cup, fl oz, etc) to weight measurements for common baking ingredients. My only wish is that there were even more ingredients to choose from (most basics are included). Be aware: the measurement for "Sugar" is for confectioner's (powdered) sugar NOT granulated sugar. All other weights for baking ingredients seem consistent with other reliable sources.
