Cooking is an art but baking is a science. To get the best most consistent results all chefs agree that accurate weighing is critical. When you mix together ingredients, you’re creating chemistry, edible chemistry, so being precise is important. Extra salt or baking soda can ruin otherwise perfect cookies. Too much flour makes muffins taste dry and flavourless.
