Get yourself a nice kitchen scale - it has tons of uses. Measure 4oz every time. The box suggests 2oz but that's for pussies or maybe an appetizer.

The scale comes in handy for all sorts of shit. Like measuring how much meat you put on your sandwich. So you can make sure you get 4 equal sandwiches out of your pound of turkey instead of that last sandwich with like 2 slices of meat. You can also weight postage and boxes under 11lbs. If you have a small dog, you can keep its weight in check. You can even weigh your balls.

TL;DR warning

Are you willing to invest in some tools? Do you like Five Guys? (skinny burgers) The fastest burger procedure that I know of is Kenji's Ultra-Smash technique, which makes a pair of thin patties in no time. Takes about a minute per burger (two patties with cheese). Details here:

You can also do a regular smash burger, which is thicker (McDonalds-thin), but takes longer (~1.5 minutes per side, about 3 minutes total per burger):

The advantage of the ultra-smash is that it's super quick & you can toss a piece of cheese to melt between two patties, so you can pump out a ton of burgers in no time. You will need a few tools, namely:

  1. A metal cooking surface
  2. A hi-temp heat source
  3. A smashing tool
  4. A high-quality spatula
  5. A scraper (if doing ultra-smash)
  6. A cheap IR temp gun
  7. A cheap digital kitchen scale

    It's not rocket science, but getting a proper setup will let you have a workflow that makes cooking for a crowd a breeze. I have a big extended family, so I cook in bulk a lot, but I also use this for just my immediate family because it's so fast to get setup. There is an up-front investment required, but everything you'll buy will pretty much last forever, so it's worth it if you like to eat burgers!

    So the first two things you need are a metal cooking surface & a heat source that can pump out a lot of heat. I don't recommend a regular grill because they simply don't get hot enough; you need 600 to 700F to do this. You can either do a compact setup (a 2-burger surface with a single burner) or invest in a quality flat-top setup (more expensive, but lets you do more burgers at once). The ideal surface to do this on is a Baking Steel, which is very expensive. There are knockoffs for cheaper, but I like BS because they have a Griddle version with grooves to catch the grease:

    You can also do it with cast iron. Lodge has a griddle for $25:

    If I'm just doing a single regular smash burger at a time, I use a 12" cast-iron pan. $28:

    If you do get into cast-iron, read up on this seasoning procedure (i.e. the way to keep it smooth & slippery without Teflon). It's a bit of a pain, but it's worth learning because anything you buy in cast-iron can be handed down to your kids because it lasts forever:

    You will want a heavy smashing tool as well. I have this massive 2.5-pound cast-iron press. It fits inside the 12" pan above (but not the 10"). $13:

    If you plan on doing ultra-smash burgers, you'll need a scraper. This is the one Kenji recommends, but you can probably find something locally: (Home Depot or Lowes)

    Anyway, getting back to the cooking part: you'll need a hi-temp burner. I like Bayou Burners, they sell them on Amazon. I have an SP10: ($50)

    I use that with my 12" cast-iron pan for when I'm just doing a few burgers for the family. 15 minutes = 5 burgers. You can also slap a flat surface like a cast-iron griddle or Baking Steel on that puppy. Also comes in a square version (not sure how the BTU's compare). I also have some KAB4 burners that I use with my Baking Steel, among other things. More expensive, but larger shell & burner: (more even heat over the cooking surface)

    For cooking more at a time, you can get a cooktop. Blackstone has a 36" cooktop available, but it doesn't get very hot (don't get me wrong, it's an awesome tool, but I've had trouble breaking 500F on mine, which means you're not cooking 1-minute burgers on it, plus the heating is kind of uneven, so you have to work in the hot spots for faster cook times). Also comes in a slightly smaller 28" version (but it's only like $50 less, so it makes more sense to get the full-sized version because you get so much more cooking area). The nice thing with this setup is that for $299 (or a bit less if you shop around at places like Cabela's), you can cook like 20 burgers at a time, it's absolutely insane! I make epic breakfasts on it. Plus it folds up for transport, which is really handy. We use it for all of our family events & holidays:

    A better version is from Tejas Smokers. They make camping stove carts that have burners built-in & have griddles available separately. They get super hot, downside is the cost: you can easily spend $700 on a nice setup.

    Oh yeah, Blackstone did just come out with a compact outdoor griddle which can run off those little one-pound green tanks if you want. They go for around $99 ($79 if you have an Ace Hardware near you). I have not tried this, but it gets good reviews. I'd be curious to see what kind of temperatures it can achieve:

    So that's a basic introduction to the cooktops: you need some kind of decently-sized metal surface, a hi-temp burner, a smashing tool, and optionally (but recommended) a scraper. You will also want to get a strong, high-quality spatula. A good one is $32:

    Available here:

    If you opt for cast-iron, get an infrared temperature gun (doesn't work too well on shiny metal surfaces like steel tho). $17:

    A cheap digital kitchen scale is useful too, for measuring out the proper amount of meat. $14:

    This collection of tools ensures that you have the proper workflow: a metal surface to cook on, the ability to bring the surface to a high temperature (and know what that temperature is for precise control), the ability to weigh your meat so you can pre-measure out what you need, the ability to smash the burger down, and also to properly scrape it off. Again, it's not rocket science, but if you have a wussy grill or a crappy surface or weak smashing/scraping tools, you're gonna have a bad time. You just need the right setup to pump burgers out fast!

    So on to prep. For ultra-smash, you do a pair of 2-ounce ground beef balls. In the tutorial above, they use a mix of meat for 25% fat. I just grab some regular 80/20 ground plus some salt & pepper. For regular smash burgers, do a single 4-ounce ball (optionally 5 ounces...useful if you have a big cooktop for a bunch of burgers at one time & are only doing a single patty per burger). The nice thing is, there's no special prep required for the meat, so you can make all of your burger balls ahead of time. If you have 10 people & are doing ultra-smash, let's say half of them get 2 burgers, so 15 burgers total, or thirty 2oz balls. If you have 20 people & are doing regular smash, again with half getting an extra burger, that's 30 burgers total or thirty 4 or 5oz balls. So that takes care of prep...adjust as needed. If you're feeding mostly dudes, you'll want to add more seconds (and thirds) to the equation.

    There are a variety of buns you can get. Crap buns will make for a crap burger. See if you can find potato buns or brioche buns. Those are pretty soft. Buns aren't overly hard to make, but I have yet to find a decent recipe that takes under 40 minutes, so I usually only doing fancy home-baked buns for my family rather than a crowd. Buying 5 or 10 pounds of ground beef & making smash balls out of them will take you all of ten minutes, but making buns can take forever. Here's a good recipe if you want to try it out tho:

    Or this, if you wanna get crazy:

    Or this one, nom nom nom:

    But eh, just hit up Sam's/Coscto/BJ's and buy some hamburger buns in bulk, problem solved. Or find a local bakery that has good rolls. There's a good shootout of buns here:

u/Larfox · 5 pointsr/progresspics

Definitely doable man. No better time than to start now, if you haven't already.

I highly suggest signing up at My Fitness Pal, and buying a food scale. Make sure you stay within your deficit.

Other than that, it's just consistency. Every time you don't want to work out, any time you are about to pick up that phone and order take out, ask yourself, is that AFTER picture you're looking to take worth never happening? Be a beast. Surround yourself with like-minded people.

u/Watcher_woman · 5 pointsr/snakes


just go to Walmart and get a kitchen scale that can go up to around 11 or 12 poounds

u/night28 · 5 pointsr/loseit

This one:

is the one I use and it's recommended on here a lot. It works well for me. I've had it for 2 years and it's still working fine.

u/grae313 · 3 pointsr/Fitness

Go to amazon and look for one between $10 and $20 with a lot of reviews. You don't need anything fancy, a basic scale will be reliable and cheap. I have this guy, great little scale.

u/Troycar · 3 pointsr/gainit

I have this scale.

Had it for a couple years now and it works like a charm. Bought it originally for baking but it's primary use is food measuring now.

u/Waitwhatwtf · 3 pointsr/Fitness

Cereal - retarded o'calories
Fast food - retarded o'calories

What you're going to need to bag an Adonis:

  • Tailor's tape

  • Food scale

  • This, or on whatever your boat floats

  • Patience

    I went from 250 - 200 in about 3 months by simply cutting out carbs entirely. Ketogenic diets can definitely help speed the process along, but you may find that chocolate cravings will replace penis cravings, so watch out for the backlash from hijacking a Hostess truck and devouring its contents wholesale.

    It's been said before, but read the FAQ.
    Use the food scale to help you plan accordingly to the nutritional data given by what you eat. Compare grams to grams. Boom, head shot.

    Measuring yourself with the tape is a much better metric than using a scale, in my opinion. Scales don't account for water weight or how full/empty your stomach was last time/is now.

    You can't out-exercise a shitty diet. Say that to yourself every time you go to eat something you shouldn't. You can have a treat when you're getting dicked by the type of guy you want. But then cut out the bullshit and get back to work. Beauty takes maintenance.

    Despite your desire for wanting cock, I highly recommend you exercise. Being healthy is a good thing. You may feel you have missed out X years, but health allows you to extend your life that much further. It's probably not as good, but getting in the habit now allows you to get boned by the old guys in your convalescent home.

    Your tits are probably going to sag. I'm just saying that now to mentally prepare you. I don't know what you look like, but I'm sure they're going to have a bit of sway that is unwelcome. I'm balding; we all have our flaws. On the bright side, I never have to pay for a hair cut again. I don't know what the silver lining is for saggy tits, but I'm sure you can figure it out. You're a smart person.
u/Smilingaudibly · 3 pointsr/keto

The exact one I have! It's held up well for the three or so years I've had it

u/citan_uzuki · 3 pointsr/loseit

You're past the big hurdle by already logging in two weeks. Good work on the initial weight loss, too. =)

MyFitnessPal and a food scale are your two strongest allies in the realm of accurate food intake measurements. MFP gives you a lot of information about everything -- from what you're eating at home to restaurant meals and more.

Over time, regular use of the scale will teach you how to eyeball serving sizes, understand how portion sizes actually look when compared to the nutrition facts, and really recognize how to improve your eating for both weight loss and healthy ongoing maintenance of a goal weight.

Good news: it's not a big investment to get a food scale. You can get one from Amazon for around $15 without Prime. Here's a good one that's highly rated and can hold up to 12 pounds for measuring.

Keep on truckin' OP.

u/funchords · 3 pointsr/loseit

In the USA, you're smaller than average yet, yes, you're in that overweight population range on the height-weight charts. That's because most Americans are so heavy, not because they're healthy. We live in weird times.

> I've been eating between 1500 and 1700 calories per day

Let's get more confident about your tracking. You're making your own sandwiches. What's the difficulty in tracking them? That should make it easy.

Do you have a digital food scale? This one is on sale for $8 right now... a scale really makes a difference to my tracking effort.

u/accostedbyhippies · 3 pointsr/Fitness


I can maybe eyeball amounts after 2 years of weighing and when I double check with the scale my estimate is off at least half the time. Buy a scale. Weigh everything. Stick to only food you prepare or come with Nutrition data on the package for a few weeks.

Then see what happens. The speed and amount of your weight gain is concerning and there may very well be underlying issues but I find it hard to believe your calorie count is correct, you're gaining weight and not dead tired all the time from some sort of malfunction in your metabolism. For all of these things to be true you'd have to be defying the very laws of physics.

u/JustARogue · 3 pointsr/Fitness

Alternatively, buy something like this:

and a couple of ziploc bags. Toss them in you bag. Wrap the scale in the ziploc and weigh your food. Then toss the ziploc away after your meal for no mess.

u/Keroseneslickback · 3 pointsr/loseit

There's hundreds of good ones on Amazon between $10-15. I use this one:

Prep everything. Weigh it all raw before cooking.

u/quazywabbit · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I would recommend getting a scale. You don't need anything fancy. I use this one myself.

Once you have a scale I would suggest using a chart like the following and then tweaking it for your own tastes.

depending on the size of the grind it may have an effect on how much coffee you use and the taste. This may just need trials since different coffee makers work better with different grind size.

The important thing I would say is enjoy how changing something like grind size or ratio can change the flavor profile and may bring out notes you didn't taste before.

u/justanaccount___ · 2 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

I'm into fitness and everybody I know uses a food scale that cost $12 and we've used them for years. I've had this for 4 years going strong.

Trying to estimate calories is always the downfall of people trying to lose (or gain) weight.

u/PigDog4 · 2 pointsr/funny

>eating in excess of 4000 calories a day

What brand of food scale do you own? How frequently do you weigh and measure your food? What tools do you use to track calories? Do you keep a food journal (paper or online)?

I went from 125 lbs to 160 lbs at 5'9" by eating 3000 kcal per day every day once I actually started counting. 3000 kcal per day sucked to eat. I was literally drinking 24 oz peanut butter and nutella milk shakes 3 or 4 nights per week just to get my calories in. I would eat until I felt like I might throw up, wait twenty minutes, eat some more, and repeat until my 1800 kcal dinner was gone. I use this cheapass food scale from amazon to weigh things.

The chances of you eating 4000 kcal per day and failing to put on weight are zero unless you're like 7 feet tall, a competitive ironman athlete, or have a metabolism that falls so many standard deviations outside of the mean that you could be studied by a lab.

/r/gainit. Go there. Put on weight.

u/sjlu · 2 pointsr/Fitness


Withings Scale is amazing, I like how I can keep myself accountable by just looking at my phone.

I own one of these for food. Cheap, effective and does the job. I believe I bought it for cheaper when Amazon had a deal.

u/passively · 2 pointsr/1200isplenty

I've got this Ozeri scale and it does the trick! It weighs up to 12 lbs and doesn't time out so quickly, which I like.

u/youprobablythinkthis · 1 pointr/1200isplenty

I got this food scale, works great.

Items I use all the time:
Rice cooker
Immersion blender
Food processor
Slow cooker

u/SuperNanoCat · 1 pointr/loseit

I love my food scale. My only problem with it is that the readout is upwards facing and gets covered by larger plates. Make sure you get one with an outward facing display, just to be safe.

Mine is far from unusable, mind you. It's just a little annoying having to interpret what it's trying to say at such a shallow angle. It's just a dingy LCD like on a cheap watch, so it's hard to read at an angle.

I have this one. You can get around the display placement issue if you weigh everything separately on a small plate, but I'd rather dump it all on one and tare between items.

u/RelativityCoffee · 1 pointr/Coffee

I think the two most important questions are: what are some coffees that you've had and like? What sort of work are you willing to put into it?

My personal recommendation would be to get a Baratza Encore grinder, a digital scale, a gooseneck kettle of some sort, a Chemex, and a French Press. All that should easily fit within your budget. And of all the accessories I have, on 90% of the days I don't use anything other than those. Well, and some coffee beans.

But that will take some work -- measuring, grinding, pouring, waiting, more pouring. It will make much better coffee than any automated machine, but maybe you don't care that much and it sounds like too much work. In that case, the Technivorm Moccamaster and Bonvavita 1900 TS are good options for automatic drip machines.

EDTIT: Sorry, I missed "automatic" in the text. I still don't think that will give you the best coffee, but if you're set on it, ignore everything I said except the Technivorm and Bonavita.

Ozeri Pro Digital Kitchen Food Scale, 1g to 12 lbs Capacity, in Stylish Black
I have had this one about 8 months now, works pretty well and no issues. It doesn't take up much room either.

u/bookishgeek · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

A kitchen scale. I know it's "only" $15, but I'm currently in a weight loss journey and it's so hard when everything is measured in ounces on My Fitness Pal and you can't afford a scale to weigh your food! I desperately need one of these puppies.

u/Phaz · 1 pointr/recipes

I'm not sure how those compare. The only real factors you need to worry about are capacity and accuracy. For accuracy something that does 1g is fine, 0.1g is good for some things (modernist style stuff that uses all the fancy chemicals and what not) but 1g is more than plenty for most people. For capacity you want something that goes up to at least a kg or so. One like this is perfect.

u/Max_Dombrowski · 1 pointr/Ultralight

I have an Ozeri as well. This one:

Been using it daily for six years in my kitchen. It's remarkably consistent. I can put an empty bowl on it that I weighed six years ago and it still shows exactly the same weight, to the gram.

When it gets gunked up because I spilled something on it, I just take out the batteries and submerge it in very hot water, slosh it around and work the buttons a few times, shake out the water and let it dry for a day or two. I've done that at least half a dozen times and it works like the day it was new.

u/TheMoneyOfArt · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

If you're not measuring your sugar with a kitchen scale, that's a really cheap, easy way to prevent this exact problem. Here's a lot of different ones. I use this one, which is accurate to the .05oz. That's plenty for 5gal batches, but a little sketchy when you're down to 1G-2G.

That said, if you're already using a scale, I'm very sorry. I'm still having trouble dialing it in bottle-to-bottle myself, and a thorough mixing is somewhat difficult.

u/frescani · 1 pointr/loseit

I just use this cheap scale from amazon.

I didn't substitute anything but the website OP linked should have that kind of info.

u/Nicky4Pin · 1 pointr/Fitness

Not really, to be honest.

I have this one and have no complaints. It does grams, ounces, kilograms, and pounds.

u/donknotts · 1 pointr/loseit

I have this scale.

I had a Fitbit One. It helped me be more active with walking, which my dog also loved. That led to me doing Couch to 5k. Eventually I sold the Fitbit and got a Garmin watch for running.

Do be skeptical. Get tools that you will use, otherwise it's definitely a waste. I didn't want a Fitbit wristband because I thought something on my wrist all the time would annoy me, and I only needed a pedometer. Get what works with your goals.

u/cordial_carbonara · 1 pointr/loseit

I recently purchased this Smart Weigh scale and love it. It's accurate, simple, and is slim and easy to store. I've been using this OXO kitchen scale for a couple years now and have zero complaints. It's kind of pricey (I found mine half price at an outlet store), but I've definitely gotten my money's worth out of it because I bake a lot (including breads) and it's never failed me. If you're looking for cheaper, my mom seems to get by just fine with this little guy. I wouldn't use it for big jobs or things that you need accuracy to the gram, but it works for casual use.
