Advanced Culinary Training Equipment

Ohaus scales provide real life training for precision measurement. Accuracy and training are key components for success in most professions, especially for those desiring to become chefs.

For years, The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) has provided tens of thousands of aspiring chefs the necessary training for success. Now, with the help of Ohaus Corporation, the CIA will continue to demonstrate the importance of accuracy through precise measurements and calculations of ingredients.

Recognized as a world leading manufacturer of weighing equipment for laboratory, education, industrial and other applications, the Ohaus Corporation has recently expanded its involvement in the food service arena by donating 30 Scout® Pro Electronic Balances to The Culinary Institute of America, in Hyde Park, New York.

The CIA will incorporate the equipment into its baking and pastry degree programs, where precision gram and sub-gram weighing is paramount in the successful preparation and reproduction of complex recipes.

Chef Peter Greweling, Professor in Baking & Pastry Studies, states that students currently use the Scout Pro balances in a series of demanding training exercises where the equipment is in constant, meticulous use.

According to Carl Joslyn, Market Manager, Industrial for Ohaus, in addition to precision and standing up to the rigors of daily use by students working in a back of the house environment, one of the features which separate the Scout Pro Electronic Balances from other equipment is the ability to easily set the scale in multiple weighing modes. With a simple, two-button interface, users have the capability to move from metric to American measurements.

“Ohaus is proud to be associated with The Culinary Institute of America, one of the world’s premier culinary colleges,” Joslyn said.

Ohaus Corporation manufactures an extensive line of high precision, portable, industrial and mechanical balances and scales for the laboratory, industrial, education and specialty markets. An ISO 9001:2000 manufacturer, Ohaus is headquartered in Pine Brook, New Jersey, and has offices throughout Europe, Asia and Latin America.
