DETECTO made in the USA Enterprise® APS series digital scales are ideal for precise portion control weighing in pizza kitchens, delis, and bakeries. The scale’s vivid, bright-green backlit LCD provides clear visibility for ingredient weights in any lighting condition. The APS series comes in 6 different capacities with 4 different platform sizes. For this video, you’ll be watching the model APS160 which weighs completely in ounces: 160 oz capacity by 0.1 oz accuracy.
The APS series can be equipped with an optional piezo tare button to expedite production in busy food prep settings. Both the LCD display and the piezo tare button can be remotely mounted on the wall, countertop, or even the side of the countertop to facilitate an orderly work environment. DETECTO’s piezo tare button is stainless steel and virtually indestructible, so it will stand up to rugged treatment in any busy commercial kitchen. This handy tare button allows the weight of various ingredients to be quickly tared off while building finished products such as pizzas or sandwiches.
By incorporating the optional tare button with the APS series, you now have the SPEED and ACCURACY needed for faster and more precise food preparation. This provides a more consistent, quality output for the customer… and tighter quality control without waste for the business owner. DETECTO’s tare button utilizes piezo touch technology which features no moving parts and is the toughest quality possible. The button registers when pressed to tare the weight off the scale and return it to zero. An audible beep will sound to alert employees that the ingredients have been tared from the scale and to notify them that the scale is ready for the next step in the food prep process. The large button size, sturdy design, and discernible beep of the piezo tare button are crucial features for any fast-paced food production workflow. Due to the rising cost of ingredients, especially meats like pepperoni, these features are instrumental in minimizing production costs.
Simply add your ingredients, check to ensure the proper amount of ingredients have been added, subtract or add additional ingredients to achieve the desired target weight for each stage, and press the piezo tare button to set the scale back to zero. Continue building each stage of the pizza to reach your target weights and precisely measuring your portions every step along the way. Then, when you’re finished, remove the pizza and you’ll see the total product weight on the LCD. The tare button on DETECTO’s APS series provides a fast, efficient workflow to your kitchen! This method delivers a consistent, precise finished product every time. For more information please call 919-776-7737 or visit us online at centralcarolinascale.com
