Bonavita Electronic Scale, $94.99

Looking for a gift for a serious chef or foodie? How about a host/hostess who loves to entertain?

Seattle-based kitchenware company Bonavita has introduced specialty products for the most discerning kitchen buffs.

For example, the commercial-grade Bonavita Electronic Scale, made popular by coffee shops and espresso bars nationwide that swear by it, measures with great precision and speed to the 0.1 gram — perfect for a health-conscious cook or home chef who needs the most exact measurements.

“Weighing your proteins and ingredients like dried pasta on a kitchen scale is a smart, easy way to be mindful of portion sizes,” said Roger Wittmann, brand manager of Bonavita. “Our Bonavita Electronic Scale is great for kitchen tasks that require exact measurements. It weighs to the 0.1 gram! Many healthy recipes now indicate the weight of dry ingredients— a sign that a kitchen scale is a staple tool of the healthy cook.”

Bonavita products can be purchased at Espresso Supply. The following New York City retailers carry select products: Joe, Oren’s Daily Roast and Irving Farm Coffee Company.
