I find it so hard to measure honey because of its consistancy. A tsp may actuallly be a tbsp but who knows? Half of it gets stuck on the spoon anyway.

It's great for foods that are difficult to measure, because you can put your food bowl on it, press the zeroing key. Add a food or ingredient (in this case, honey). Note the measurement. Calculate the calories (a tsp of honey weighs 21 grams and has 20 calories - or approximately 1 calorie per gram). Last edited by kaplods; 09-09-2009 at 11:36 AM.

Hmmm, honey, yogurt, and oil? Not sure I want to try that unless it's a savoury dish but thanks I'll keep in mind.
