The Pana Baker’s Scale by Escali – Accuracy and Versatility – I had longed for a more accurate and versatile kitchen scale for many years so, I finally broke down and bought a new one, the Pana Baker’s Scale by Escali. It’s not only highly accurate but can measure in many ways, including volume amounts of cups and tablespoons, something no other scale can do. It has proved to be everything I was looking for in a home kitchen scale. Read my review of it at Pana The Baker’s Scale

KitchenAid’s Newest Coffee Maker Earns Important Certification – KitchenAid has created a new coffee maker that is designed to automatically simulate pour-over coffee brewing.

Report Advises Bottled Water Companies To Target Susceptible Consumers – A report, whose intent I completely disagree with, tells makers of bottle water & other beverages to target “multicultured” & “Gen-X” consumers with mobile phone and social media. In essence, these groups drink the most bottled water, double down on your focus and get them to drink more. Not only is this a bad idea from an environmental perspective, it isn’t the best health option either given the dubious source for most mass produced bottled water. My look at this in Targeting Consumers Likely to Drink Bottled Water
