It is easy to measure the weight of products without special devices. The main thing is to carefully consider what is at hand, and the result can be obtained quite accurate. Therefore, if you do not have special kitchen scales, and the recipe must be observed down to the gram, do not panic, but just start measuring.

## Instructions

### Step 1

The easiest way is to use a special measurement table. You can easily find it in a cookbook or on specialized sites on the Internet. It offers the average of a given product in a teaspoon, tablespoon, dessert spoon, glass, and bowl. So, for example, according to this table, 5 g of ordinary water is placed in a teaspoon, 18 g in a dining room, and 200 in a faceted glass filled to the top. Just select the product you need and calculate how much you need in certain cutlery …

### Step 2

If lengthy mathematical calculations and grueling calculations are not for you, use your hand. For example, it has long been calculated that 100 g of meat or fish is a piece the size of a woman's palm. If the cook is a man, then he can safely add another 50 g for calculations. A portion of cereal, the size of a fist, will weigh 200 g. By the way, the hand principle is used when calculating the necessary portion for a healthy diet. You need to eat 4-6 times a day in palm-sized portions.

### Step 3

In some cases, special dishes with graduated graduations are suitable for measurements. On some glasses, you can find markings for several products at once - flour, sugar, water and salt. The same goes for cooking bowls and bowls.

### Step 4

You can calculate the weight of the product based on which container you are working with. So, if you choose a bowl with a capacity of 250 g, and you need to weigh about 50 g of the product, then simply divide the total number of grams of the container by the required one. Then mentally determine the parts in a cup equal to the resulting figure, and then weigh the product. However, keep in mind that the weight of various products also depends on the consistency and density of the starting material. Therefore, this weighing method is not suitable for all products.

### Step 5

Another option is to simply remember how much food it takes. One of the advantages of this method is that memory is trained well. However, if you do not rely too much on your memory, then it is best to insure yourself with some other alternative method of weighing products.
