When something is “Scaled” it means that it has been weighed with a scale. Scaling is pretty straightforward as long as you “tare” to correct for the weight of your container. When “taring” you measure the container alone and empty so you can account for its weight in your final measurement. Many modern Electric Scales have a tare button, which automatically subtracts the weight of the container (if measured separately first) from your final measurement. Forgetting to tare will cause you to put too little ingredient into your dish.

You will see that Scaling is fairly simple as Teaching Chef demonstrates it in the Scaling Video.
