Cooking Vocabulary in English for ESL Learners - Kitchen Scales

Welcome to this first post on cooking & baking in English which provides useful vocabulary to help ESL students improve their communication skills when cooking and baking in the kitchen!

This example gives a helpful definition of Kitchen Scales which are an essential piece of kitchen equipment for all those people who are serious about baking cakes.

Example sentences (English / Italian):

The kitchen scales weigh ingredients accurately.

La bilancia pesa con precisione gli ingredienti.

NB: The word 'scales' is usually plural in British English (but singular in Italian!)
