Re: Easy way to measure shortening

I used to do that occasionally before I had a scale. I find the scale simpler and less messy. I just put a piece of plastic wrap on the top of the scale and spoon the solid shortening onto it. 1/2 cup of shortening equals 4 oz. advp. In other words, ounce for ounce. Easy.

I also use a scale but without the plastic: I put my mixing bowl on the scale, "tare it" or zero it out, then add the shortening by weight (1T=3D12 or 14 gm, for example). It is accurate and there is only one messy scraper to wash. I LOVE my digital scale!

My scale is quite small, although will weight up to 15 lbs. Unfortunately, a mixing bowl sitting on top prevents me from seeing the readout. Otherwise, I'd use the bowl.

OXO makes an 11# max scale that has a pull out display for those situations.

That is a nice looking scale. I think I saw it in Fine Cooking. Unfortunately, I still have an old one and use a clear glass bowl so I can see the read out. My food processor bowl still fits on the weight table, and I use that the most for weighing.
