I am a pastry chef in SF. I came across this calculator while in culinary school a few years back. One of the best darn tools I use. Every kitchen should have a calculator, but why not one that will also help with conversions? Get this as a gift for anyone you know who loves to cook.
As a "multi-national" often attempting to follow a recipe in different lands with different measures, I thought this would help. . Unfortunately, it is FAR too complicated to revise an entire recipe and after using it just a few times, the display conked out. It wasn't batteries as I was forced to purchase a new set to check. The cost to repair it (it was just out of warranty) exceeded the cost of a new one! Be careful before you spend for this.
I publish Epicurus.com, one of the leading food and travel sites with more than 10,000 recipes. In an average week, I go through more than 200 hundred recipes developing them for our site or our clients. As a restaurant consultant, I scale recipes for clients every day. This calculator has made my life simpler and given me less angst over miscalculated formulae. The device is as simple to use as a normal calculator, but so much better.
