Wall-Mounted Digital Scale And Clock

Save space and take the guess work out of measuring with the hi-tech digital scales.

This wall-mounted digital clock has a removable food scale that can be placed on a countertop or table, eliminating the need to provide counter-space for both appliances. The scale is controlled entirely by a touchscreen, and it slides over the clock and locks into place, and when removed and used to weigh food or items up to 7 lbs., it uses an infrared signal to transmit its measurements in either metric or imperial readings to the easy-to-read backlit display mounted to the wall. When not in use as a scale, the display provides time and room temperature.

Food Saver

Canister mode achieves the best vacuum on canisters and accessories, and for vacuum packaging delicate foods, the unit’s CrushFree Instant Seal function immediately stops the vacuum process to prevent crushing.

The appliance works with FoodSaver accessories and FoodSaver bags, which are safe to freeze, boil, or microwave, and are proven to prevent freezer burn. The unit’s built-in roll holder and cutter simplify making custom-size bags, while its extra-wide sealing strip with nonstick coating provides a secure, airtight seal.

Give the Kershaw Shun Stainless 9 inch Bread Knife, Saw through those 3 layer club sandwiches like a hot wire through butter. Any Shun knife will make any serious cook drool.

Take fresh sausage or hamburgers to the extreme with a Commercial-Grade Electric Grinder from Cabela’s,
