Marsden on TV
This entry was posted on 13/09/2018.
Marsden scales have found their way into countless numbers of places over the years. They are now found in most NHS hospitals, as well as a number of leading organisations in British and overseas industry.
And every so often they pop up on television, too.
Last week the B-100 Bench Scale, our best-selling stainless steel scale, made an appearance on BBC One’s Celebrity Masterchef.
But this isn’t the first time Marsden scales have been televised - we take a look at some of our TV appearances in recent years.
The B-100 on Masterchef
The B-100 is perfect for weighing ingredients in industrial kitchens, and has been used by some of the country’s leading restaurant chains. The scale’s IP68 waterproof rating makes it hygienic for food weighing, as it can be washed down after use. Plus the stainless steel casing looks the part.
The scale features throughout clips of Chizzy Akudolu in last week’s episode. She used the scale for weighing rice as part of her dish. Last year, this bench scale was also featured by the Guardian, as part of a story on how one family was using weighing to reduce food waste.
The scale has a choice of capacities and graduations which can be tailored to the individual’s needs. Capacities are available to 30kg and it weighs in increments to 0.2g.
Other television appearances
The One Show: The Marsden M-510 was used on BBC One’s The One Show in 2016 on a piece on the accuracy of bathroom scales. The test showed that this Class III Approved scale was far more accurate than the non-approved bathroom scales which were also tested.
Paul O’Grady’s For The Love Of Dogs: This series was set at the Battersea Cats and Dogs Home, whom Marsden has been supplying since 2016. Battersea own both the V-150 scale for weighing large dogs, and the V-22 veterinary scale for smaller pets.
This Morning: On Pancake Day 2017, Holly and Phillip attempted to break the record for the number of stacked pancakes, live on television. To measure the record attempt, ITV needed an accurate height measure and contacted Marsden to order the HM-250P.
