For this home cooking lab I made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with a food scale. This tool is used for measuring food in grams and oz. sometimes used in place of Tsp Tbsps or cups. Many People use this for measuring ingredients in the metric system not just for baking but cooking too. I used this item for measuring out all most of my ingredients for the smaller measurement I used ml. There are not many safety except putting in something that is super heavy and putting in a super hot item. The proper way to use this item is, to use the platter or the measuring cup on top and put the item in ether and wait for the scale to balance out and to make it perfect add in more with a small spoon or take out some to get the perfect measurement. If someone didn’t have this item they could use Ml Tsp Tbsp or cups, they serve the same purpose just different ways to do them. I used this to make oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and i shared it with my family. I used a recipe by ‘livforcake’ https://livforcake.com/oatmeal-chocolate-chip-cookies/ If I were to make this recipe again I would put in a little less sugar. challenges i overcame where – finding measuring spoon that where in ml, measuring the food right and leaning how to use it. I overcame them by being patient and asking for help. the greatest success and i was most proud of was the final product.
