Let’s dig deeper to gain more insight about the product.

This weighing scale is fairly easy to use. Counting calories may be a lot of work, but not for this digital tool. It breaks down the nutritional information perfectly in a jiffy. Basically, it does all the work without any fuss.

Better yet, the results have been accurate at all times. It gives out the true picture as it is. In rare instances, it might require a little poke to update the accurate weight.

But, you may not necessarily be singing and dancing all day long. There are some minor hiccups with this product too. Let’s review this nutritional scale from top to bottom to know more about it.

Product Features:

Forget the old-fashioned terrible looking kitchen scales. They are an eyesore at best. The EatSmart Digital Nutrition Scale can prove to be your new and smart dietary assistant. It not only measures the weight, but it also includes the calories in the food. Better yet, the white backlight fully illuminates the display for effortless reading.

It’s pre-programmed with 999 different types of foods. So, all one has to do is enter the corresponding code number of the food to be measured and the gadget will automatically return the nutritional value at a moment’s notice. It operates on 4AAA batteries and automatically shuts off when not in use to conserve the battery life. The product manufacturers claim that this weighing scale has been road-tested by numerous industry experts from all across the globe.

In Use:

Here’s an honest admission. The scale literally has every feature you should ideally expect from a nutritional scale in today’s age and time. The device has truly shined in calorie counting as well as factoring out the ingredients being measured in it. It calculates calories, fats, carbs, and other components like a breeze.

Better yet, it turned out to be pretty consistent and accurate. Yes, there were no vague surprises. It took all the guesswork out of calorie counting.

It’s relatively easy to use this weighing scale. Even a six-year-old will know how to use this unit without any struggle. Given the good appearance, it looks fantastic on the kitchen counter.


Expect some vibration if you are using this unit near an active cell phone or microwave. For instance, the numbers jump around a lot if you were to send or receive a message on your cell phone while weighing the food.

So, it’s advisable not to use this weighing scale near an electronic gadget. Other than this, the EatSmart Digital Nutrition Scale is a priceless thing to own. It does complete justice to the asking price.

My dad is a true mans man, and has owned a number of grills. Ranging from gas to charcoal. Growing up with him allowed me to see what different types of rubs, spices, brines, etc went into making the best BBQ. Although my dad was a truck driver, and I had a degree in Information Technology I knew that I wanted to do something about grilling and our recipes.  That’s where Barbeque Smoked comes in.


  1. I bought my boyfriend the prep pad off of amazon, it did not come with a book of codes and it is not linking up tO his iPad ios11 every time we go through the website “install” it says the app is no longer available in the US. This is extremely frustrating for me me, I hope someone can help me.

    • Ellen,

      BarbequeSmoked is in no way affiliated with the Prep Pad by theorangechef. Our team simply bought their domain when. I would contact the manufacturer directly.
