Whether you’re counting your macros or trying to make your grandma’s homemade chocolate chip cookies, you’ll have greater success measuring foods by weight (read: grams and ounces) rather than volume (cups and spoons). These fan-favorite kitchen scales all include a tare option that lets you subtract the weight of your bowl or plate.
