PRODUCT REVIEW! Kamenstein Digital Scale (no they aren't compensating me in any way)

A bunch of years ago, I bought this digital scale:

ALSO available in red:

I got mine at Costco, but you can get them anywhere  I use it ALL the time, I weigh everything that I bake.  I weigh ALL the bread unless I specifically say I don't.  I weigh my mail on this thing, it's precise!! Over the years, I've bought many scales and uses all sorts of types.  THIS is my absolute favorite of all of them.

This scale is easy to use, easy to clean, easy to read! easy to adjust to zero out and to set the units of weight.  I LOVE this thing.

I am going to start writing more recipes by weight so you're all going to need one too.

NOW then, this is the punctuation on this review.  After all these years, the display was looking funky...I tried new batteries, i tried old batteries, I tried used batteries.  Ooops, oh no, my beloved scale was dying???  I called the company:

them:  Thanks for calling Kamenstein, how can I help you?
me:  HORROR, my scale is starting to do weird things with the display!
them:  OH don't worry, give me your name and address, we'll send you a new one, sorry you might have to wait up to a week.
me:  A WEEK? that's FANTASTIC!  thank you so much!  I love a lifetime guarantee.
them:  We're happy to help, let us know if you have any questions or need more help.....

THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is customer service.  So, my sad dead scale is sat here beside me, it doesn't owe me anything.  I have used and abused it for way too many years and the fact it's guaranteed for life?

Well, get online and get yourself a Kamenstein digital scale and if you feel like letting them know you saw my recommendation, that's great but I didn't write this to GET anything, I wrote it so YOU can get it!

/go get it

Quiche muffins, the big ones, the ones you want to make and eat on sunday morning. They're great hot, cold, reheated, fried! and freeze beautifully...

There's NO recipe here, it's a method.  For the large sized muffin tins, I use one egg per muffin cup and then add one egg for the pan. Regular muffin tins will only need barely one egg per muffin cup, always gage low, you can always add!


IN the video below, I made 8 quiche muffins so I used (ultimately) 9 eggs so that's the math for all future large cup muffin pans.

I mention in the video my favorite pan is the Bakers Pride 12 cup loose base dessert pan.  I use it for muffins, these quiches, cheesecake and any other time I want a smaller version of any original.  I will tell you they're not available for sale in the USA.  You can pay a fortune to have them imported OR you can wait and see if I can get us a deal on buying bulk, I'll report back on that one.

So, rather than  long winded drawn out version of what I cooked....  I just did a video :)
go on, go take a look
