OXO Giveaway WINNER!



UPDATE: with the help of Random.org the winner has been picked. 

Result:
14Powered by RANDOM.ORG

Congrats Melissa!
I am super excited to tell you about this scale! I was chosen to tell you all about Healthy Eating with OXO in the blogger outreach program. While I was given the scale, all opinions on it are my own. 
I have not worked with a scale for a while because my old one broke and I had not got a new one. I figured it would just be another regular food scale, but after opening it, playing with it and reading about it. I realized I was wrong! 
My favorite feature of this scale is the pull-out display which allows for visibility of the display when a large container is placed on the platform. For instance, here I am measuring a big bowl of strawberries:
Kinda hard to read the display with the big bowl covering it. Check it out:
I wish my mailing scale would have had this back when I was running my company. I LOVE this feature!
I also love the weight conversion that allows for easy lb to kg conversion with the push of a button. 
Other great features: Zero button that allows the scale to zero out before adding additional ingredients. Auto Shutoff: After 6 minutes of inactivity the scale will shut off to save battery. It runs on 2 AAA batteries, which I also love. No cords or outlets to deal with. 
This scale is user-friendly and perfect for weighing fruits, vegetables, flour, sugar, coffee, meats, cheeses and more.

  2. It may seem odd, but my favorite produce is asparagus! My favorite way to prepare it is to roast it (though I've steamed it and have fried it as well). To roast: Trim off the ends of the asparagus; place in a single layer on a baking sheet; drizzle with a little olive oil, salt and pepper (I also sprinkle with garlic powder many times). Roast at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes. Yum!

  10. My favorite fresh produce is probably pickling cucumbers. They always taste fresh and crisp. Always have to pick them up before I leave the produce section. I love to eat them by themselves and in salads! I am now following your blog and would love for you to stop my blog anytime :)

  17. My favorite produce is fruit from my own garden, because I don't use any chemicals on them! Black raspberries top the list, though. I eat 'em right off the vine and they instantly make me feel happy.
